Not too long ago, Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort updated their face mask policies, which were implemented when both properties reopened last year.
Walt Disney World reopened its resorts and theme parks in July 2020. At this time, only the Downtown Disney District and a partial section of Buena Vista Street at Disney California Adventure are open to the public at Disneyland Resort. Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure remain officially closed.
In case you missed it, Disney updated their face covering policy for both Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort to include the rules for “transparent windows” on face coverings. Additionally, Disney Resorts stated that even those vaccinated must still wear a face mask when on Disney property — At both Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort.
Disney fans and Guests are not holding back when expressing their thoughts and opinions on these new updates.
Inside the Magic reader, Bee shared that they are happy Disney is continuing to update the face mask rules to keep people as safe as possible:
Personally, I’m glad Disney is updating their rules to continue to keep people safe. Folks should have a little bit of gratefulness that Walt Disney World is even open! Disneyland isn’t, and probably won’t be for a while! The cast members of the resort in Florida are putting themselves (and anyone they live with) at risk every day by working with guests who need a little Disney magic in their lives… Complying to the simple rules and finding creative ways to continue to make it fun for you and your family isn’t asking too much, people.
If you feel like it is asking too much, try working a customer service job during this pandemic, then you’ll understand how it feels to be on their side…Then cancel your trip and stay home. Disney doesn’t need your money if you don’t like rules: they’ve always had lots (of rules and money ???)
Inside the Magic reader, Bren chimed in:
Even if you’ve had the vaccine, they still have not confidently stated you cannot spread it. Remember the vaccine is only 95% effective. […]
While another ITM reader, Jeremy, said that they canceled their recent Disney World trip and don’t plan to visit until face masks are no longer required:
