As Disney continues to deal with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic as well as the surge in new Omicron variant cases, Guests visiting the Disney Parks and Resorts have had to change and adapt to new rules, regulations, and policies.
From face mask mandates in the Disney Parks to vaccinating requirements onboard the Disney Cruise Line, Guests have to be sure and check what is required of them before planning a Disney trip. As of now in Disneyland, Guests are required to wear masks or approved facial coverings in all enclosed spaces.
More on Disneyland’s mask policies:
Face coverings are required for all Guests (ages 2 and up) in all indoor locations, regardless of vaccination status. This includes upon entering and throughout many attractions and in enclosed transportation vehicles, including shuttles and buses. Face coverings remain optional for Guests in outdoor common areas.
While Guests will not be required to show proof of vaccination, all Guests must attest that they are aware that: 1) the State of California strongly recommends that Guests be fully vaccinated or obtain a negative COVID-19 test prior to entering the Disneyland Resort, and (2) all Guests (ages 2 and up) must wear face coverings when indoors, including on many attractions and in enclosed transportation vehicles.
All face coverings (whether disposable or reusable) must:
- Be made with at least 2 layers of breathable material
- Fully cover the nose and mouth and secure under the chin
- Fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face
- Be secured with ties or ear loops and allow the Guest to remain hands-free
At this time, based on guidance from health authorities, neck gaiters, open-chin, triangle bandanas and face coverings containing valves, mesh material or holes of any kind are not acceptable face coverings.
Costume masks are not considered appropriate and are prohibited from being worn, in alignment with our existing rules.
Face coverings may have an integrated transparent plastic panel to aid in viewing the wearer’s mouth. These face coverings should:
Be a fabric face covering featuring a solid plastic panel containing no openings that is attached to the fabric on all sides using tight knit stitching
Meet all face covering requirements listed above
Usually, most people follow these rules without hesitation, as it’s a way to not only keep other Guests safe but Disney Cast Members as well. But sometimes, Guests don’t always want to abide by these rules.
In a recent video posted to TikTok, one Guest gave a “First Order Officer” some trouble after refusing to wear their mask while on Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. See the full video from @tadfirtrail below:
People in the comments had a few things to say about this rather uncomfortable situation. User @jillsheaa said:
I love that at this attraction cast members can actually get mean with anti maskers
User @helfan0395 commented:
Did he say “you’re ruining my whole day?” Like you knew the policies, you didn’t have to go
User @doseofdisney suggested a rather harsh way of dealing with unruly Guests:
Disney really just needs to start kicking guests out who act like this. CMs don’t need to deal with this everyday.
User @kidfabulous72 pointed out that this isn’t new:
it’s only been 2 years buddy, not like this isn’t new
