Now, Disney has made another BIG change when it comes to masks in the parks.
Another month down in Disney World and we’re headed into the summer!
We had a pretty busy month FULL of Disney news (which seems to be the norm these days). Sure, we saw some things coming like preparations for Pride Month and even the 4th of July, but some news was downright SHOCKING. Here are the three most unexpected things that happened in Disney World last month!
Currently, masks are no longer required outdoors in Disney World (or on pool decks), but continue to be required in certain places like upon entering and throughout all attractions, on all Disney transportation (including transportation entrances), and in some other locations. Now, Disney has made a slight change to its mask policy when it comes to whether masks are required in its theaters.
But, sometimes things can get even more expensive when prices increase for your favorite merchandise items, experiences, food, and more. So far, we’ve seen 3 pretty big price increases this year on popular items and experiences in Disney World. Now, we’re sharing all those details with you so you can adjust those budgets and prepare for your upcoming trips.
And as these guidelines change, we’ll be seeing more updates from other businesses as they begin to loosen those guidelines in their own establishments.
Theme parks’ safety policies have been changing frequently lately.
Recently, Universal Orlando dropped its outdoor face mask mandate for guests, and Disney World followed shortly after. This comes as parks are increasing capacity and reducing social distancing, too. And now, we have confirmed with Universal that another change is on the way.
Cast Members are often the reason your Disney vacation can be so magical!
They are vital to making the Disney Parks and Resorts operate smoothly and successfully. Since the pandemic began, many Cast Members have been hit hard by the closures around the world and the massive furloughs and layoffs Disney made in 2020. Now that many parks are back up and operating, Cast Members deserve our appreciation more than ever!
Limited capacity has had a HUGE impact on pretty much every aspect of Disney World. Some of the results have been nice, and some…have been mildly inconvenient.
Recently, Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Chapek stated that Disney World is, and has been, increasing capacity. On top of that, Disney will be reducing social distancing guidelines. Not to mention, outdoor masks have just been made optional. This could have a pretty big impact on how the parks look and feel, and most importantly, how you experience them! We have some ideas about what might change going forward, and what you might want to get ready to expect.
