Walt Disney World Resort will be relaxing its face covering guidelines starting June 15th. Starting on that date full vaccinated guests will have the option of wearing face coverings in most places throughout Walt Disney World Resort. They will still be required to wear face coverings on Disney transportation.
Those who have not been fully vaccinated will still be required to wear face coverings throughout all indoor location, on attractions (from the moment guests enter the attraction) and also on transportation.
Along with the updated face covering guidelines, Disney will also be relaxing its physical distancing guidelines. Disney is stating that while things continue to move towards normalcy, there is still a ways to go. However, the new post on Walt Disney World’s website hints that character meet and greets will be returning.
The new relaxed policies do not go into effect until June 15th. Until that date, current policies remain in place. These new policies are only for Walt Disney World Resort at this point and do not apply to the Disneyland Resort. DAPS MAGIC will continue to follow this story and provide updates as they are officially announced.
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.
We encourage people to get vaccinated.
