Walt Disney World Lifts Outdoor Face Mask Requirements kids-face-masks-bubbles-magic-kingdom

In line with today’s decision by Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings to lift the outdoor mask requirement, Walt Disney World has modified its face mask policy to state that masks are no longer required outdoors.

The new rules take effect on Saturday, May 15, 2021.

Please note that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines still recommend that unvaccinated people wear masks indoors and outdoors with just a couple of exceptions.

Disney is also reminding guests that neck gaiters, open-chin triangle bandanas, and face coverings containing valves, mesh material, or holes of any kind are not acceptable face coverings based on guidance from health authorities.

Face coverings are required for all Guests (ages 2 and up) and Cast Members. Please bring your own face coverings and wear them in all indoor locations, except when actively eating or drinking while stationary and maintaining appropriate physical distancing. 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.

Take a look at Disney’s chart below that clearly states where face coverings will still be required to be worn on their property.
