ORLANDO, Fla. (WFLA) — The Walt Disney World Resort will be rolling back some of its mask requirements for vaccinated guests this Thursday.
Starting Feb. 17, masks will be optional for fully vaccinated guests in both outdoor and indoor locations, according to guidelines released Tuesday.
Those who are not vaccinated will still need to wear masks in indoor locations, including attractions and theaters.
The resort said that all guests ages 2 and up will still need to wear masks on enclosed transportation such as buses, monorails, and the Disney Skyliner.
Acceptable face coverings must be made of two layers of breathable material, cover the mouth and nose, and be secured so the guest can remain hands-free.
Neck gaiters, open-chin, triangle bandanas, and face coverings containing valves, mesh material or holes of any kind will not be allowed, according to Disney.
Costume masks are also not acceptable substitutes for face masks.
However, someone can use a plastic panel to allow someone to show their mouth so long as it is part of a fabric face covering that has no openings and meets the above requirements.
