BREAKING: Masks Once Again Required Indoors at Walt Disney World, Disneyland Resort Starting 7/30

Walt Disney World Resort has announced another change to their COVID-19 safety policies and will now require masks to be worn indoors regardless of vaccination status beginning July 30. This aligns with the recommendations from Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Disneyland Resort has also reinstated the indoor mask policy in alignment with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the state of California’s recommendations.

Until now, vaccinated guests were permitted to go maskless everywhere except on Disney transportation. Unvaccinated guests were asked to continue wearing masks indoors, including transportation.

“We are adapting our health and safety guidelines based on guidance from health and government officials, and will require Cast Members and Guests ages 2 and up, to wear face coverings in all indoor locations at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort beginning Friday, July 30, regardless of vaccination status. At Walt Disney World Resort, this includes upon entering and throughout all attractions and in enclosed transportation vehicles, including shuttles, buses, monorails and at Disney Skyliner,” reads an official statement from Disney.

Well so much for planning our next trip. We did one trip with masks, but I am not doing that again. I’ll start looking into it again when all this craziness settles down. Hopefully fast pass will be back by then too.

You seem to not understand. The people who were not vaccinated are at fault. That’s ignorance getting a little smack on the wrist.

Ed likes Disney but absolutely despises that they are trying to take the rights away from their avid customers! We aren’t in a communist country nor state don’t try to tell me to do something that isn’t my choice. Let the customers make their own choice. That is what this country was founded on!

Totally agree. I won’t be putting a mask on my 2 year old and I won’t be wearing a mask again. See ya later Disney.

That is how I feel. If you feel unsafe and want to wear one feel free too, but I am over it. It should be our own personal choice.

Same here. Just canceled DVC res in October. Not playing the game again, particularly when the CDC is refusing to release their “data” to a growing number of of medical and scientific experts asking to see it.

That seems a bit premature. After this wave peaks they will be gone again. No way WDW is doing their 50th in masks.

I went the first week of July. It was great not having to wear masks, although I did in a couple situations like Rise of the Resistance and before entering San Angel Inn. Going back for New Years. Hopefully things don’t get more restrictive or I’ll cancel.

Disney caves to non-science. Bad decision! I hope this nonsense is over before my September trip. My heart goes out to those guests who will be there on 7/30.

Why not require proof of vaccination? If not vaccinated you cannot enter.

Because the GOP in Florida passed a law prohibiting businesses from doing so.

Disney would lose too much money. It’s easier to push draconian rules on everybody.

Yeah, and those who are vaccinated and are still getting the virus again. Those people ruined it for the rest of us too! And those saying “our body, our choice.” How dare they make their own medical decisions! Don’t they know that is what the government is for? Hopefully they mandate all medical decisions be run through them from now on. The general public isn’t smart enough to assess risk and make up their own mind.

I will be hardcore praying (again) that this lifts so we can all enjoy our trips and special events coming up in the next couple of months.

I’m not sure they had much of a choice. They are already being put under a ridiculous amount of scrutiny just for even trying to be open – so they basically have to follow the guidelines or risk litigation they probably would prefer to not have to deal with.

Hopefully this situation changes before our planned trip next November, but if it looks like it won’t (and I doubt it will honestly – not sure they’ll ever truly let us go back to not wearing masks) I’ll probably end up canceling.
