France has recently began to crack down on the New Delta variant of the COVID-19 virus by mandating a “Health Pass” for most public locations which has accumulated a large amount of controversy in the country. One of the locations required to use this “Health Pass” is Disneyland Paris which had recently reopened its doors.
Beginning July 21 2021, following government regulations, Disney will require guests to present a Health Pass for admission into the Disneyland Paris theme parks for anyone 18 years or older. From August 30, that age requirement will drop to age 12.
The Following Guidelines have been given by the French Government:
That a guest is fully vaccinated (with an EMA-approved vaccine):
– Two weeks after the second shot for two-shot vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca);
– Four weeks after the shot for one-shot vaccines (Johnson & Johnson);
– Two weeks after the shot for vaccines administered to people who have already had COVID-19 (only one dose is necessary).
OR that a guest has been tested (PCR or Antigen) and has a negative result within the last 48 hours;
OR for persons who have had COVID-19: the result of a positive RT-PCR or Antigen test, attesting that the individual has been infected, and that a period of time of at least 11 days and less than 6 months has passed since the test result was obtained (considered as a recovery certificate).
The recent “Health Pass” initiative has been met with much resistance resulting in multiple protests against the Health Pass and criticizing the government. It is unknown how long these Health Pass rules will be in effect, but for the time being if you want to Visit Disneyland Paris you will not be allowed in without either Proof of Vaccination or Proof of Testing Negative to the Virus within a 48 Hour Period.
