Walt Disney World is relaxing its face mask policy beginning June 15, 2021. Beginning June 15, masks will become optional for vaccinated guests visiting Walt Disney World everywhere except on Disney transportation.
The Walt Disney World website has been updated to reflect the upcoming change.
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.
Summarized, masks will only be required on buses, Monorails, boats and the Disney Skyliner. Masks will be optional for all vaccinated guests in all other locations such as attractions, queues, shops and restaurants. Guests will be asked to abide by the honor system as Disney won’t be verifying vaccination statuses.
Disney also announced they are relaxing their physical distancing protocols. We’ve already seen many shops, queues and attractions returning to normal capacity. Disney notes that despite the relaxed distancing rules, some experience will continue to operate under reduced capacity.
