Disney World to Drop Mask Requirements in Most Locations and Physical Distancing June 15
The news we have all been waiting for is here! Walt Disney World has just announced that masks will no longer be required in most areas and physical distancing measures will be suspended as of Tuesday, June 15.
Walt Disney World is allowing Guests who are fully vaccinated to remove their masks pretty much everywhere around the Resort. The only exceptions are on transportation including buses, the Monorail, and Disney Skyliner.
In addition, on June 15, Guests will notice physical distancing markers removed in most queues, shops, restaurants, attractions, transportation, and theaters. Some experiences are continuing to operate at a reduced capacity but things should fully be back to normal in the no-so-distant future!
Here is the official statement from Walt Disney World regarding them dropping the mask requirements and social distancing measures:
Within our communities, we’re encouraged that COVID-19 guidelines have been adjusted and eased by public health and government officials, paving the path for many businesses and industries to take positive steps forward.
As we have done since reopening, we’ve been very intentional and gradual in our approach to our COVID-19 health and safety protocols. Based on recent trends and guidance, Walt Disney World Resort will be making more adjustments to these measures, including physical distancing and face coverings.
Beginning June 15, you will start to notice the following changes:
Face coverings will be optional for fully vaccinated Guests in most areas. Face coverings will still be required of all Guests on Disney transportation, including Disney buses, monorails and Disney Skyliner. While we will not require proof of vaccination, we expect Guests who are not fully vaccinated to continue wearing face coverings in all indoor locations, and upon entering and throughout all attractions and transportation. Guests must observe current policies on face coverings until June 15.
We will be relaxing physical distancing guidelines for Guests. This will be visible in places like queues, shops, restaurants, attraction boarding, transportation and our theaters. It’s important to remember that some experiences and entertainment may still be operating with limited capacity or may remain temporarily unavailable. We’re not quite ready to bring back everything yet, but we are optimistic and look forward to the day when Disney pals and princesses are able to hug once again.
We will continue the high standards for cleanliness and sanitation we’ve always set for ourselves. Cleaning supplies and hand sanitizer stations will still be available.
What I really love about the announcement above is this line: We’re not quite ready to bring back everything yet, but we are optimistic and look forward to the day when Disney pals and princesses are able to hug once again.
That gives me so much hope that some of are other favorites are soon to return including FastPasses, dining plans, character meet and greets, parades, and fireworks! We are definitely heading in the right direction, folks!
