ORLANDO, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — If you are heading to Disney World hoping to celebrate your COVID-19 vaccine and thinking that you can play maskless, you are only partially right. While Disney World is dropping all outdoor mask requirements effective Sunday, May 16th, the indoor mask requirement continues.

Regardless of your vaccination status, anyone aged two or up must wear a mask indoors. That includes all rides. Your vaccination status is irrelevant. The new rules take effect on Sunday, May 16th, 2021.

From Walt Disney World corporate communications:

“Face coverings are required for all Guests (ages 2 and up) and Cast Members. Please bring your own face coverings and wear them in all indoor locations, except when actively eating or drinking while stationary and maintaining appropriate physical distancing. Face coverings are optional in outdoor common areas at Walt Disney World Resort, but are still required upon entering and throughout all attractions, theaters and transportation.”

A similar policy takes effect Sunday at Universal Studios Orlando.
