Disneyland Resort Updates Face Covering Policy to Exclude Valves, Mesh Material, or Holes

The Disneyland Resort has updated its face coverings policy as it continues to strive to create a safe environment for both guests and cast members. This update mirrors updates that came to Walt Disney World Resort recently. With the changes face coverings can no longer have any valves, mesh materials, or holes of any kind.

These updates come after neck-gaiters and bandanas were recently removed as acceptable face coverings for individuals at the Disneyland Resort. Below is the current face covering policy from the Disneyland Resort website:

Face Coverings

All Guests ages 2 and older are required to bring and wear face coverings when visiting the Downtown Disney District.

All face coverings should:

    • Fully cover an individual’s nose and mouth and allow the Guest to remain hands-free
    • Fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face
    • Be secured with ties or ear loops
    • Be made of breathable material, either disposable or reusable

At this time, neck gaiters, open-chin triangle bandanas, and face coverings containing valves, mesh material or holes of any kind are not acceptable face coverings.

Guests may remove their face covering while actively eating or drinking outside, stationary and maintaining appropriate physical distancing from others.

Costume masks are not considered appropriate and are prohibited from being worn, in alignment with our existing rules.

The use of face coverings is not a substitute for physical distancing.
