    Hello! With the mask mandate in most areas of the parks/hotels ending on June 15th for vaccinated guests, how does this apply to children aged 2-12 for whom a vaccine is unavailable?

    Hello, Michael! Welcome to planDisney, and thanks so much for stopping by!

    As you’ve noticed already, there have been many recent updates to Walt Disney World policies and procedures surrounding the current global situation. As of June 15th, there was a change to the masking policies outlined on the Experience Updates pages. Vaccinated Guests are now able to go mask-free, if they so choose, except on Disney transportation. Unvaccinated Guests (including those unable to be vaccinated due to age) must still wear masks for everyone's protection, except in outdoor common areas and pool decks. 

    I hope that this information helps shed light on the face covering policy as it currently stands! Given how rapidly the situation is changing, you can expect more updates in the coming months, including the exciting return of many of the most beloved experiences! For example, Walt Disney World recently announced that fireworks spectaculars would return later this summer. That is truly a reason to celebrate!

    Michael, I hope you can soon plan a safe visit to Walt Disney World for your whole family. We are always here to help you navigate the news as it becomes available and shed light on any of your plans! Do not hesitate to come back and see us again anytime we can help.

    Wishing you many magical memories,
