    i know mask wont be required for vaccinated guests but what about children? i have a two year old, will she be required to wear one still?

    Hello Alexandra, and welcome to planDisney! Thanks for stopping by en route to your magical adventure.

    With the evolving public health situation, it's more important than ever to stay up to date with protocols for visiting the Most Magical Place on Earth. I like to follow the Disney Parks Blog and the Experience Updates page for the most accurate and current information. Per a recent policy change, face coverings are now optional for vaccinated Guests in most areas of the theme parks and resorts. All visitors still need to wear a face-covering while riding Disney transportation

    Because the new guidelines apply to vaccinated visitors only, your two-year-old Mouseketeer is required to wear her face mask at all times while in indoor venues as well as on attractions and transportation. I visited Walt Disney World shortly after the outdoor mask mandate was lifted from the theme parks and resorts, and I felt like the majority of my time was spent walking around outdoors in areas where they weren't required, so your daughter will be able to enjoy the theme parks mask-free during a significant portion of your trip.

    My family and I will be traveling to Walt Disney World in less than two months (let the final countdown to fun begin!), and our little ones are also too young to be vaccinated, so they will still be donning their favorite face coverings while enjoying attractions and exploring indoor areas. Fortunately, they've become quite accustomed to sporting a face mask wherever they go, so wearing them in theme parks is a normal part of their world. There are some really cute designs available on shopDisney, and my kiddos have already selected their favorites for our upcoming trip. Since the vaccinated grown-ups in our party will still be wearing masks on transportation and might opt to wear them in more crowded areas of the parks, we're also planning to pack plenty of this year's most essential fashion accessories. 

    I hope this is helpful as you continue to dream about your Walt Disney World adventure. This is an especially exciting year to visit, and if there's anything else we can do before you embark on your journey, come back and see us at planDisney anytime. We're all ears!
