Disneyland Resort Releases Statement Reiterating Outdoor Face Mask Requirement

Although the Walt Disney World Resort made the groundbreaking decision yesterday to end the mask mandate outdoors for Guests, the Disneyland Resort issued a statement today clarifying that their outdoor mask requirement remains in place, per State of California regulations regarding theme parks.

The clarification came from a Disney spokesperson, who said:

“Disneyland Resort’s current guidelines, which require all guests (ages 2 and older) and Cast Members to wear face coverings, remain in effect until further notice. Policies will be evaluated in accordance with state and local recommendations as soon as guidance is released.”

California of course continues to retain a statewide mask mandate, although Gov. Gavin Newsom stated earlier this week that new guidance and regulations may come as a result of these changes from the CDC, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. As of yet, no new announcements have been made. The state remains on track for dropping most of its regulations on June 15th, which includes the possibility that Disneyland Resort could open its parks to out-of-state visitors.

No. Not eagerly awaiting the removal of face mask requirements. I was just at Disneyland yesterday and the amount of entitles guests is at a record number. Social distance spacing in line queues is sporadic and never enforced. Guests are distracted, unruly, and overall dismissive. The fact that Florida leads the country in exposure, cases, and deaths is insanity that they’re also leading in reopening. Pure madness.

if you can read CDC reports – death rate differenxe per million between (way less old peopl) California & Florida are only 30 people. Saying Florida death rates lead the nation? both states are in the top safest ½ of the nation. but if fear works for anyone – then carry on

The anti-maskers can stay home and the rest of us can enjoy Disneyland without them.

I’m not an anti masker, I like to breathe, and I’ve done my research. Who are you to tell anyone to stay home? I’ve been to Disneyland already, will go again! Are you going to tell my grandson he needs to stay home?

No one is saying that you have to stay home if you wear a mask . But many pro-maskers shame anti-maskers and act like star-belly-sneetches. If you are worried about contracting covid by all means wear a mask, you have that right. Just like those people who have been vaxed or are not concerned about contracting the virus or have already had the virus and have antibodies have the right to NOT wear a mask.

Absolutely! Cindy the irony is almost nauseating. The ones needing to stay home are the ones covering their faces for a virus.

Young kids still need to wear masks and I think they will be more apt to do it if they see everyone is wearing a mask. Until young kids can be vaccinated they can still contract covid and other varients. The new variants can pass onto non vaccinated people and then new varients will come and maybe this vaccine won’t work with those variants.

We still think. EVERYONE should still wear a mask until young kids can get vaccinated. We purchased our tickets and made our reservations for June 26th.

My grandkids can’t get vaccinated because they are too young. Everyone else in our family is fully vaccinated.

We are going because we thought everyone would still be wearing a mask and only allow californians. We want EVERYONE to still wear a mask in the park. Its not fair for kids to have to wear them when others aren’t. We’ve come this far we should just wait a little while longer.

Agree 1000%. I would not have bought the tickets if I thought my 7 year old who cannot yet be vaccinated would be subjected to a bunch of unmasked adults who may or may not be vaccinated.

They can do whatever they want with mask but they are not touching my money as long as they keep those mask rules

I am hoping they keep mask requirements in place and enforce them. Disneyland is first and foremost a place for kids. Kids are not yet vaccinated. And quite frankly, I have lost all faith in any sort of “honor” system from adults. I have reservations in two weeks and I am hoping Disney does the right thing and protects their most vulnerable visitors.
