As COVID-19 continues to affect the world, the Disney Parks and Resorts have all undergone major changes to how they work, look, and operate. Recently, Disney made a big change regarding Coronavorus safety for Guests visiting one of Disney’s premiere Resorts.

As policies surrounding COVID-19 continue to change, Guests have had to adapt and get used to a lot of different measures in order to keep not only themselves safe but Cast members as well. Unfortunately, Disneyland Shanghai and Hong Kong Disneyland both recently closed down due to an outbreak of COVID-19.

On the flip side, Disneyland Paris is gearing up for a return to normal and Disneyland and Walt Disney World both completely dropped their mask mandates for vaccinated Guests, essentially meaning no one will be wearing masks from here on out. And speaking of mask mandates, one Disney Resort just made big changes to how Guests will interact and visit.

Disney’s Aulani is a luxury Resort set in beautiful Hawai’i and is the dream vacation for many Disney Park veterans, as of today, visiting will become a little bit easier.

Disney announced that the Aulani Resort is dropping its mask requirements for fully-vaccinated Guests. The official website states:

Face Coverings

Not required for Guests outdoors, and optional for fully vaccinated Guests in most indoor locations.

Face coverings are not required for Guests outdoors, and are optional for fully vaccinated Guests at most indoor locations at Aulani Resort. We expect Guests who are not fully vaccinated to continue wearing face coverings at all indoor locations.

All face coverings (whether disposable or reusable) should:

  • 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
