Disney World no longer requires masks for vaccinated Guests. However, one hotel on Disney property still requires them. See which one and why this is still in place.
Last week, Disney dropped its mask policy for vaccinated Guests. This means if you are fully vaccinated you do not have to wear a mask indoors or outdoors. There are a few exceptions, however. For one, they must still be worn on Disney transportation. This is a federal mandate by the United States government, so Disney will continue to require face masks on buses, the Skyliner, and monorail.
Second, regardless of vaccination status, you must wear a face covering inside the First Aid centers. These act like mini health clinics, and medical offices and hospitals around the country still require masks.
For the most part, vaccinated Guests are free to roam around Disney property without wearing masks (if they so choose). However, one hotel still requires them.
A Federal Building
Did you know there is a federal building on Disney World property? It’s true!
Shades of Green is a resort specifically for our Armed Forces. Current service members, retirees, and select DoD employees are given special access to this hotel. The federal government owns it as an Armed Forces Vacation Club location.
I have been fortunate enough to stay here a few times. Not only are they some of the biggest (and cheapest!) rooms on Disney property, but it is a short walk away from Disney’s Polynesian Resort.
You can read more about my thoughts on Shades of Green HERE. Even if you do not stay here, you have access to Shades of Green if you qualify. Stop in for a meal or a quick stop at the Exchange!
So, why are masks required here?
As stated above, Shades of Green is a federal building, and masks are still required while inside federal buildings. Federal buildings all across the country (and world for that matter) still require face coverings for everyone 2 years and older, regardless of vaccination status.
Do you ever stay at Shades of Green? What do you think of the face mask policy? Let us know in the comments below and on Facebook.
