A Disney Park is dropping its vaccine mandate. It seems this park is swiftly returning to its pre-pandemic status.
Disneyland Paris’s Vaccine Mandate
Disneyland Paris adopted a myriad of health measures in response to Covid-19. Not only did Disneyland Paris establish a mask mandate, but the park also implemented and enforced a vaccine mandate.
Beginning January 24, 2021, in line with government guidance, guests aged 16 and above were required to present a Vaccination Pass to enter Disneyland Paris. Guests aged between 12 and 15 were required to present a health pass.
Relaxing the Guidelines
Recently, Disneyland Paris lifted its mask mandate altogether. The change began this month.
The Disneyland Website read: 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”. You can read the full story from Monica right here.
Say Bonjour to Warm Hugs
The park then dropped the need for socially distanced character meets! Not only that, but full character interactions returned!
This means that Guests can take photos with, receive autographs, and even give hugs to Disney characters. Donna broke the news right here.
Of course, this news made American theme park goers wonder what it means for character interactions in Walt Disney World and Disneyland. The response is as simple as “soon.”
The Vaccine Mandate Is Vanishing
Now, Disneyland Paris has revealed that the vaccine mandate will be lifted. The change begins tomorrow, March 14, 2022.
The Disneyland Paris website states, “In line with the latest French government guidance, as of Monday, March 14, Vaccine Pass and Health Pass will not be required anymore to access Disneyland Paris.”
As of Monday, March 14, Vaccine Pass and Health Pass will not be required anymore to access Disneyland Paris.
This is interesting news, indeed. Disneyland Paris had strict guest mandates, and now it will have essentially none.
The news all comes on the heels of the beginning of the park’s 30th Anniversary Celebration. So far during the celebration, technology has been the star of the nighttime spectaculars and a pantsuit outfit has drawn mixed reviews.
