We have a new update on the mask requirement for Disney transportation. Check out which form of transportation no longer requires masks.
Face Mask Mandates
Recently, Disney dropped its mask policy for vaccinated guests. This means if you’re fully vaccinated, masks aren’t required indoors or outdoors. However, there are a few exceptions.
Everyone must wear a face covering inside the First Aid centers, just like medical offices and hospitals around the country still require them. Also, they must still be worn on Disney transportation. This is due to a United States government federal mandate that was recently extended.
Disney uses buses, monorails, boats, and the Skyliner to transport Guests around property. There are so many parks and resorts that complex systems are needed to get people where they need to go.
Since the federal mandate requires all people to wear masks on public transportation, you need to wear a mask anytime you get on Disney transportation. However, it appears Disney is getting around that by classifying certain modes of transportation as an attraction.
Recent Change in Mask Requirement
Effective March 16, 2022, vaccinated Guests no longer need to wear masks on Disney’s Skyliner or while being transported to and from the Galactic Starcruiser. To read more about this change, read HERE.
This past week, I (Susan) visited Disney and rode my favorite type of transportation, Disney boats. Immediately, I noticed a change from last month. None of the boat Cast Members were wearing masks!
I asked if guests were required to wear masks inside. The Cast Member responded that masks are no longer required on any Disney boats. This is a huge improvement from last spring when Disney had plastic dividers between Friendship boat rows and required masks.
Masks are no longer required on Disney World boat transportation.
As of now, buses and monorail are the only types of Disney transportation requiring masks for guests.
It appears that the federally mandated mask requirement may be dropped altogether soon. What are your thoughts on this? Will you continue wearing them, or are ready to let them go? Please l et us know in the comments below and on Facebook.
