    Are Splash Mountain and the Haunted Mansion going to be open during Thanksgiving weekend? Are masks required if we are vaccinated? Where are masks required? Where do we pick up wristbands if we are not staying at the resort.?

    Hi Sarah!

    The holidays at Walt Disney World are so festive! The parks are adorned with zillions of twinkling lights, thousands of bright red poinsettias, and hundreds of brilliantly decorated Christmas trees! I adore the Mickey wreaths that adorn the lampposts.

    Sarah, we LOVE questions here at planDisney, so your bunch of inquiries is a delight! 

    Get ready to get wet and possibly soaked, because according to the day calendar Splash Mountain will be plummeting riders down into the briar patch the weekend of November 27. Your Ghost Host will be providing tours of the Haunted Mansion over Thanksgiving weekend.

    Currently masks are required, for both the vaccinated and the unvaccinated, indoors and on enclosed transportation. Outdoors or indoors while actively eating, you may remove your masks. 

    MagicBands are available for purchase at almost any store in Walt Disney World. However, you will probably find the easiest plan is to order your bands in advance from shopDisney so you will be ready to hit the parks on arrival.

    Wishing you a wonderful visit to see Mickey!
