Walt Disney World recently changed its face mask policy for those who are fully vaccinated, now stating that face masks will be optional in both indoor and outdoor locations. The new policy went into effect on February 17, 2022.

Now, another Disney theme park is changing its face mask requirements as the world continues to move forward amidst the ongoing pandemic.

A few days ago, we reported that Disneyland Paris was re-evaluating its current mask mandate pending publication from the French government.

And today, the Disney theme park has come to a conclusion and is completely removing the face mask requirements for Guests visiting the theme parks and Resort hotels. Per the official Disneyland Paris website:

In line with French government guidance, face masks are no longer required but remain recommended at Disneyland Paris as of March 2 for experiences such as our parade and nighttime spectacular “Disney Illuminations”.

Guests aged 16 years old and above need to present a Vaccine Pass to enter Disneyland Paris. Find out more information about Vaccine Pass and what qualifies as being considered fully vaccinated here.

For Guests aged between 12 and 15 years old, a Health Pass remains required to enter Disneyland Paris. Find out more information about a Health Pass and vaccination or testing requirements for guests aged 12 to 15 here.

We continue to provide flexible commercial conditions that you can find here.

  • OR a certificate of vaccine contraindications (the result of severe allergic reaction or other medical justification for incomplete vaccination)
  • OR a proof of commitment to a complete vaccination scheme, with 3 cumulative conditions of validity as follows: first dose received before February 15, 2022, second dose required at most 4 weeks later, and a negative PCR or antigen test less than 24 hours old to access Disneyland Paris.
