In February, Disney made face coverings optional for fully vaccinated visitors in all indoor and outdoor locations, with the exception of enclosed transportation, such as the resort’s monorail, buses and the resort’s sky gondola. The new rule change removes the transportation exception, as well as the requirement to be vaccinated.

Masks are still recommended, though not required, for guests who are not fully vaccinated in indoor locations and enclosed transportation.
