To ensure we are equipping our readers with all the information they need, we will continue to report on all travel, safety, and COVID-related news that could impact a Disney Parks visit.
The Disney parks are continually updating health and safety regulations in order to comply with the latest guidance from health officials. Sometimes those updates are small changes (like adjusting signage in the parks) and sometimes they’re much bigger, like the change that’s happening right now at an international Disney park.
Disneyland Paris is making big changes when it comes to the face mask policy in the parks. For a while now, all guests have been required to wear face masks (at least in certain areas), but that’s about to change.
Beginning on March 2nd, 2022, guests will no longer be required to wear face masks in Disneyland Paris. The park’s website notes that masks “remain recommended for experiences such as [the] parade and nighttime spectacular ‘Disney Illuminations.'”
Guests ages 16 years old and above are still required to present a Vaccine Pass before they can enter Disneyland Paris. Guests ages 12 to 15 years old must present a Health Pass.
The Vaccine Pass is essentially a certificate proving that a person is fully vaccinated. The Health Pass verifies that someone is either fully vaccinated, has received a negative PCR or Antigen test within a certain time period, or has met certain requirements after testing positive for COVID-19.
These changes follow guidance from the French government, which announced that face masks will no longer be required at indoor locations beginning February 28th, 2022.
This change comes just before Disneyland Paris will begin celebrating its 30th Anniversary. The park will have a few new shows, gorgeous art installations, over 60 new snacks and treats, and plenty of merchandise for the occasion. In addition, the second Avengers Campus will open at Walt Disney Studios Park in the summer of 2022. The celebrations officially begin on March 6th, 2022.
