As Florida health guidance and regulations continue to change with more and more people get vaccinated, Walt Disney World Resort is doing its part to ensure that we can all get back to normal.
The Experience Updates page of the Disney World website, which has pertinent information on how the park experiences have changed in pandemic times, has been updated to share that the company encourages people to get vaccinated.
The messaging under the “Welcoming You Back to Walt Disney World Resort” heading has been recently updated, and you can read it in full below:
As you prepare to visit, please know that we’ve made updates based on guidance from health authorities, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and appropriate government agencies.
It may be different from the last time you visited. But together, we can find new ways to create magical moments—and memories to treasure.
We are aware of the state of Florida’s plans to modify COVID-19 guidelines. We will evaluate this latest guidance and maintain our current health and safety measures at this time, including face covering requirements. We will continue to make thoughtful adjustments to our policy. As COVID-19 vaccines become available, we encourage people to get vaccinated.
Recently, Disney World announced that due to relaxed guidelines in the state and as the U.S. continues to make progress amid the ongoing pandemic, Cast Members and Guests will not have to undergo temperature screenings before entering the parks. This update will go into effect for Cast Members beginning May 8 and for Guests on May 16, 2021. Universal Orlando recently relaxed protocols as well.
It seems that Disney is working hard to make everyone’s experience as easy as it can possibly be while keeping things as normal as possible as Guests flock back to the Walt Disney World Resort. For many, Disney encouraging people to get vaccinated is a welcome reassurance that everyone wants to put safety first, and hopefully, these measures will lead to even more relaxed guidelines as the world continues to recover from the pandemic.
