News:  Will masks still be required on transportation in Walt Disney World?

Many of the mandates on whether or not you will be required to wear a mask in Disney World have been lifted. However, there is still a mask mandate in place for Guests utilizing bus and monorail transportation. This mandate is currently set to expire soon. Now, we have an update to share on the future of mask mandates in Disney World.

All Walt Disney World Parks have made changes to our experiences with mask mandates in place in one form or another since July 2020. We have also seen temperature screenings, Park Pass reservations, and social distancing.

Last spring, we saw the face mask policy change. Many places allowed masks to be removed outdoors. Then came a complete drop of the masks, indoors and outdoors for vaccinated Guests. This was an amazing change for all those summer vacationers.

Additionally, there are two indoor locations that guests still need to wear masks: First aid Centers and Shades of Green.

However, one thing never changed: a federal mandate called for masks to be worn on all transportation. This meant that despite the removal of the mask mandates, masks were required on buses, boats, the Skyliner, and the monorail in Walt Disney World.

Disney has made some adjustments to this policy, and Guests are no longer required to wear masks on boats or the Skyliner.

The current federal mask mandate on airplanes and transit is set to expire on April 18.  However, we now have an early update to whether or not this will be extended.

The Biden administration confirms that the mask mandate for airplanes and transit will be extended. 

The mask mandate for airplanes and transit will be extended for 15 days. The new mandate is set through May 3.

So for now, we can expect to continue wearing masks on airplanes, as well as buses and the monorail while in Walt Disney World.

Leave the mask OFF, they don't work, if you want wear it fine if you don't then don't. Our bodies our decision. Washington and the cdc have no clue anymore. It's been 2 years wise up

Stop the mandates. Let those who want to wear one wear one; people doing what they are comfortable with.

Really time to stop this madness at this point. If you want to wear a mask, wear a mask. Do not mandate it for all.
