Hi all! ICYMI, the Delta variant of the coronavirus, is driving the increase in COVID cases in the United States. In response to this latest development, the indoor mask requirement returns for Disney World (Orlando, Florida) and Disneyland (Anaheim, California).

Disney is bringing back the indoor mask requirement for all guests, regardless of vaccination status. The Disney World website reads:

Face Coverings

Beginning July 30, face coverings are required for all Guests (ages 2 and up) while indoors and in Disney buses, monorail and Disney Skyliner, regardless of vaccination status. This includes upon entering and throughout all attractions. Face coverings remain optional for all Guests in outdoor common areas.

This precaution, which began on July 30th, requires masks once again for guests (ages 2+ years) visiting the Disney parks in the United States. The mask requirement reflects the updated guidance issued by the CDC in response to increasing rates of COVID, especially in states like Florida and California.

Fortunately for guests, masks remain optional for outdoor activities in Disney World and Disneyland, for now. The mask requirement returns for Disney guests only while indoors, enjoying some air conditioning!

I think the best piece of advice if you have a Disney trip planned for this year, is to bring masks, just in case mandates for face coverings update while on vacation! Regardless of the masks, you should still be able to enjoy all of the magic and pixie dust Disney Parks have to offer!
