We have already seen select Disney Parks around the world modify its safety and health protocols, including at Walt Disney World and Disneyland. Now, another Disney Park — Disneyland Paris — is modifying its face mask rules as they continue to stay in line with government recommendations.
Previously, face masks at Disneyland Paris were required at all times for Guests aged six years and older, except when eating or at designated photo spots, as the website previously stated:
To promote the health and safety of guests and Cast Members, guests aged 6 and older will be required to wear a protective face mask at all times, in Disney Parks, Disney Hotels, all indoor locations at Disney Village and Golf Disneyland. Guests can temporarily remove their masks only when eating or when taking a picture at designated outdoor Selfie Spot locations. All Cast Members and third-party operators will continue to wear face masks in all indoor and outdoor locations across the resort.
Now, however, Disneyland Paris is changing its face mask policy. Face coverings are now only required for Guests aged 11 years and older; though Disneyland Paris is still recommending that face masks would be worn for everyone over the age of six.
The wearing of an appropriate face covering remains mandatory for all our guests ages 11 and over. In accordance with government recommendations, face coverings are still recommended from the age of six. Guests will be required to wear a face covering at all times of the day at Disney Parks, Disney Hotels, Disney Village enclosed areas and Golf Disneyland. They will be able to temporarily remove their face coverings during meals and to take a picture with our Characters at the outdoor Selfie Points. All Cast Members and outside contractors will continue to wear a compliant face covering in all indoor and outdoor areas of the destination.
This change comes just days after Disneyland Paris also decided to remove social distancing from the theme parks, which you can read more about here.
