Guests Go Maskless at Walt Disney World Stores, Attractions, and More as New Policy Begins

Face masks are now optional for fully vaccinated guests at most indoor locations throughout Walt Disney World. At Magic Kingdom, signage on stores and attractions informing guests they must wear masks has been removed, and we saw guests going maskless on indoor attractions.

Masks are still required on enclosed transportation, including the Monorail. An A-frame sign outside the Monorail entrances at the Transportation and Ticket Center informs guests of the requirement.

We saw one sign still there this morning, but it was removed within a few minutes.

Inside the Main Street Bakery, most guests weren’t wearing masks. Guests who are not fully vaccinated are expected to keep wearing them, but Disney does not require proof of vaccination.

Masks are required by all guests regardless of vaccination status inside the First Aid location, as indicated by an A-frame sign outside.

Cast Members informed us that the same mask rules extend to onboard attractions: fully vaccinated guests have the option to wear them or not, while non-vaccinated guests are expected to wear them.

Guests went maskless on the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover, which is mostly outdoors but does go indoors too.

    1. Terrible news, to quote you, you don’t give two damns about others who have auto immune conditions and if they catch covid, they could be hospitalized and potentially die.

    2. I can’t wait for people to snicker and roll their eyes at me because I’ll choose to wear a mask. I’m doubled vaxxed and boosted, but just feel it’s the right thing to do and it’s like wearing a seatbelt at this point for me 🤷🏼‍♀️ Let’s let people do what’s comfortable for them without being mean and judgy ❤️

  1. Keep in mind, guests are still allowed to wear masks if they want to.

    This proves, overwhelmingly so, that most guests prefer not to, if given the option.

    Hopefully, Disney will take note of this going forward instead of listening to a vocal minority and caving to media pressure that doesn’t represent the majority of their guests.

    Hopefully transportation will roll back on March 18th, if not sooner.

    1. I’m still scratching my head on why they think it’s necessary for unvaccinated people to wear masks. Overwhelming data says this is not necessary and mix zero difference.

    2. Hopefully they’ll end it before the March 18th federal end date but I doubt it. At least I’ll get to fly back on the 20th without one!

  2. After the annoying reminders during our trip this week I’m thrilled that our next visit will be mask free! The irony of requiring masks for indoor rides/shopping and then being in close contact outside due to crowding was crazy.

  3. Finally! I respect those who are nervous and still want to wear them, but this should have been optional along time ago.

  4. COVID is still going strong, and whoever things that the unvaccinated people are going to be honest and wear their masks still has a whole bucketfull of screws loose. If you’re still not vaccinated it means you either can’t be due to medical reasons, or you just don’t care and don’t want to be, which is basically just only anti-vaxxers at this point.

    The fact that guests don’t require proof of vaccination in order to be maskless, while CMs are still required to wear masks until April 12th even though they’re required by company policy to provide their vaccination status in order to continue working, is incredibly bass ackwards. It once again just shows how little Disney cares about any of us.

  5. This change was announced in the middle of my trip. I fully support masking and wore mine outside 90% of the time. The parks are crazy packed and I would’ve appreciated more warning so I could have cancelled my trip when the masks were removed. From a multiple-time a year visitor, my “I may never go back” sentiment has only been cemented more.
