Walt Disney World has updated their face covering policy in order to bring it in line with Osceola County’s Emergency Order Pertaining to COVID-19.

What’s Happening:

  • Previously, Walt Disney World required face covering for all guests over the age of 3.
  • While Disney Springs is located in Orange County, parts of Walt Disney World — including the All-Star Resorts, areas of Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and more — are in Osceola County.
  • Osceola County has issued an emergency order mandating face coverings, with an exception for persons under the age of two, which became effective on April 13.
  • In advance of further openings at Walt Disney World, the resort has updated their face covering policy to include “all guests ages 2 and up.”
  • The Osceola County order is in effect until further notice.

Guidelines for Face Coverings at Walt Disney World:

  • Fully cover an individual’s nose and mouth and allow the Guest to remain hands-free
  • Fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face
  • Be secured with ties or ear loops
  • Be made of breathable material, either disposable or reusable

Other Screening Measures at Walt Disney World:

  • Upon arrival at Disney Springs or at the Walt Disney World theme parks, guests may undergo a temperature screening with no-touch thermometers.
  • Based on guidance from health authorities, anyone displaying a temperature of 100.4 F or above will be directed to an additional location for rescreening and assistance. Those with temperatures 100.4 F or above will not be allowed entry; those in their party will not be allowed entry either.
  • Before guests leave home, they should check the temperatures of everyone in their party as an extra layer of precaution.
