Based on recommendations from the CDC and local recommendations, Disney has released a change to the current mask policy. The official statement reads:

We are adapting our health and safety guidelines based on guidance from health and government officials, and will require Cast Members and Guests ages 2 and up, to wear face coverings in all indoor locations at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort beginning Friday, July 30regardless of vaccination status. At Walt Disney World Resort, this includes upon entering and throughout all attractions and in enclosed transportation vehicles, including shuttles, buses, monorails and at Disney Skyliner.

We will have more information as it becomes available.

    I saw on a different blog yesterday that the sale-prices on masks in shop-disney were restored back to pre-sale prices (so instead of $3 for 1 or 2 masks, $6 for 4, it was back to $12 for 1, 25ish for 4) — a pretty clear indicator that masking would come back.

      We checked on that in the parks yesterday, and as of yesterday the parks still had masks on sale at buy one/get one free for the basic themed masks (with some higher quality ones excluded). We’re checking again today to see if that has changed overnight or not.

      Never mind — I went back to shopdisney-com/facemasks and the sale prices are back on as a NEW markdown? Hmmm — I guess they figured it was a bad (price gouging) look with the un-sale?

    I’ve made lots of my own Disney themed masks – I’ve noticed that if you wear something a bit different at WDW (still Disney themed) you get lots of lovely admiring comments from the cast members which (for me) makes it worth making that extra bit of effort.

    This is what is known as a “look like you’re doing something” policy.

    Masking is proven to reduce transmission of viruses, which is vital in the effort to reduce the spread of the highly contagious Delta variant that is ripping through Florida. I applaud Disney’s move; frankly, they should also reduce capacity again and reinstitute 6-foot distancing. Delta is putting a lot of younger people in hospital or a morgue. That strikes at the heart of Disney families.

      I don’t have numbers about the delta variant putting more young people in hospitals, but it’s definitely not putting more in morgues. According to Worldometers, the month of July has had the lowest number of Covid deaths in the US since March 2020.

        Are masks required on attractions that are outside?

    Hi, Donna:

    Checked with our in-park team, and yes, masks are required on attractions that are outside. Thanks for asking!

      The wording is different between Disneyland and Disney World. Disneyland states that masks are required on “Many attractions” Any idea why the different wording between the two parks? Are masks required on all attractions in Florida but not in California?
