Disney World ends indoor mask policy for vaccinated guests


Disney World is relaxing safety protocols for some visitors.

The Florida theme park has announced that as of June 15th it is no longer requiring vaccinated guests to wear a mask while indoors.

Face coverings will still be required on Disney transportation, including buses, monorails and the Disney Skyliner aerial gondolas, Deadline reports.

No proof of vaccination will be required, as the park will have to solely rely on the honor system when asking guests if they have received the coronavirus vaccine.

Guests that aren't vaccinated are expected "to continue wearing face coverings in all indoor locations, and upon entering and throughout all attractions and transportation."

The policy change is their latest update in easing coronavirus restrictions.

In May, Disney World lifted its outdoor mask mandate for guests. "Face coverings are optional in outdoor common areas at Walt Disney World Resort, but are still required upon entering and throughout all attractions, theaters and transportation," the company said on its website.

In addition, Disney World announced on its blog it would be easing up on other COVID-19 restrictions by making "gradual adjustments" throughout its parks, including phasing out temperature checks and relaxing social distancing guidelines.

“We’re not quite ready to bring back everything yet,” the website reads, “but we are optimistic and look forward to the day when Disney pals and princesses are able to hug once again.”
