When Walt Disney World reopens beginning July 11, Guests over the age of 2 will be required to wear a mask in all areas, unless they are eating or swimming. Disney has shared there will be “relaxation zones” where Guests may remove their masks. We now have an idea on where those Zones might be in Magic Kingdom.
Walt Disney World will be strictly enforcing their requirement that all Guests age 2 and up wear a mask with loops or ties in all areas of Walt Disney World. The only exceptions to this new rule will be when Guests are eating or swimming, and when Guests are in their hotel rooms.
Throughout Walt Disney World Resort, there will be several “relaxation zones.” These zones will allow Guests to remove their masks if they need to take a break from wearing them.
We learned that in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, there will be a relaxation zone in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge where Guests can remove their masks. This area is believed to hold about 80 people.
In Disney’s Animal Kingdom, we know that there will be at least two relaxation zones. These are the locations:
- Pizzafari – Indoor, air conditioned seating
- Rivers of Light – Outdoor seating
In Disney’s Magic Kingdom, there are three proposed locations for relaxation zones for Guests.
- Tomorrowland Terrace, in Tomorrowland – outdoor, covered seating
- Golden Oak Outpost, in Frontierland – outdoor, possibly shady seating
- Pete’s Silly Sideshow, in Fantasyland – indoor, air conditioned seating
In these designated areas, Guests will be permitted to remove their masks. Guests will be expected to be spaced 10 feet apart from other groups inside these areas.
We have not received any information as of yet on where the relaxation zones will be located in Epcot, but we will be sure to update you as soon as we know!
If you’re touring the parks and need a break from wearing your mask, Character Locator will be there for you!
On top of all of the other great resources within Character Locator, such as which restaurants will be open, you’ll find all of the information on the locations of the relaxation zones as well. Kenny is working on adding these to the “Extra” tabs for each park.
