Walt Disney World has updated it’s mask policy to make masks on transportation optional. The website has been updated to reflect this stating:
“Face coverings are optional for Guests in both outdoor and indoor locations, as well as Disney transportation. It is recommended Guests who are not fully vaccinated continue wearing face coverings in all indoor locations, including indoor attractions and theaters and on enclosed transportation.
Please note, face coverings are not permitted while experiencing water slides or in the water.”
Now guests in outdoor locations, indoor locations and on transportation have the option of wearing a mask but it is not being required.
They of course do recommend that unvaccinated people wear one.
Disneyland’s site is still showing that it is required to wear a mask indoors and via transportation:
“Face coverings are required for all Guests (ages 2 and older), regardless of vaccination status, in certain indoor settings including Disney shuttles and in health settings, such as in First Aid. Face coverings are optional for Guests in outdoor areas.”
This comes after a federal judge struck down the mask mandates on public transportation yesterday. Many airlines have already made masks optional.
