The Disneyland Resort reopened its shopping and dining center, the Downtown Disney District, on July 9, 2020, they have released a set of face mask guidelines for Guests looking to return and get some fresh magic once again.
Below are the most up-to-date guidelines for appropriate face coverings at Disneyland Resort.
According to the Disneyland Website:
All Guests ages 2 and older are required to bring and wear face coverings when visiting the Downtown Disney District.
All face coverings should:
- Fully cover an individual’s nose and mouth and allow the Guest to remain hands-free
- Fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face
- Be secured with ties or ear loops
- Be made of breathable material, either disposable or reusable
At this time, neck gaiters, open-chin triangle bandanas, and face coverings containing valves, mesh material or holes of any kind are not acceptable face coverings.
Guests may remove their face covering while actively eating or drinking outside, stationary and maintaining appropriate physical distancing from others.
Costume masks are not considered appropriate and are prohibited from being worn, in alignment with our existing rules.
The use of face coverings is not a substitute for physical distancing.
Disneyland Resort’s face mask policy is nearly identical to the policy set in motion at the Walt Disney World resort in Orlando, Florida for the reopening of its theme parks the Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Animal Kingdom on July 11, and EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios on July 15.
Disneyland shared its face mask policy along with several other policy changes from the parking situation to dining at a Downtown Disney Restaurant. Guests looking to get back to Disneyland can learn more about what to expect by clicking our link below:
Disneyland also made a point to release its own disclaimer, telling Guests that they are taking all risks and responsibilities by visiting Disney property.
The Downtown Disney District reopened in Anaheim, California on Thursday, July 9, the same day Walt Disney World hosted its first day of Annual Passholder previews. Downtown Disney will open a day earlier exclusively for Disneyland Cast Members. Disneyland’s theme parks were originally scheduled to reopen for the resort’s 65th Anniversary on July 17, and two of the onsite hotels were originally scheduled to reopen on July 23, but the reopening of the parks and hotels has since been delayed.
