The Orlando, Fla., park will only require guests to wear masks in indoor areas and on public transportation beginning Saturday,l, reported by The Walt Disney Company.
The Friday announcement comes a day after Disney chief executive Bob Chapek touted the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention decision to lift mask requirements as “very big news,” that will cause an attendance spike at theme parks.
A relaxed mask policy, Chapek added, will be a relief to Disney World guests, “particularly if anybody’s been in Florida in the middle of summer with a mask on. That could be quite daunting.”
Here is what the new policy looks like and the CDC guidelines.
Disneyland in California is still subject to the state’s mask order.
