The Disneyland Resort sent out this message today, announcing that beginning tomorrow, fully-vaccinated guests will not be required to wear face-masks, and on-site temperature checks will be discontinued:
As more people are vaccinated and the nation is turning the corner on this pandemic, we are encouraged that COVID-19 health and safety guidelines set forth by the CDC and state and local officials are being adjusted and eased.
Keeping with our thoughtful approach to health and safety measures, and taking into consideration these new recommendations, we are making some changes for Guests and Cast, effective June 15, in conjunction with the reopening of California’s economy. On behalf of resort leadership, we thank you for continuing to help our Guests navigate the changing environment and delivering the Disney magic.
We are excited to welcome out-of-state Guests beginning June 15, at which time we will discontinue the requirement for on-site temperature checks. The state has removed the physical distancing requirements with respect to Guests, so we will be removing physical distancing ground markings and signage and allow Guests to self-determine distancing. Some experiences and entertainment still will remain temporarily unavailable.
Face Coverings for Guests
Starting June 15, face coverings will no longer be required for fully vaccinated Guests both indoors and outdoors. While Guests will not be required to show proof of vaccination, vaccinated Guests will self-attest that they are in compliance prior to entry. Guests (ages 2 and up) who are not fully vaccinated are expected to continue wearing face coverings indoors, except when dining. When the Toy Story parking lot reopens on June 18, all Guests, regardless of vaccination status, will need to wear an appropriate face covering while on the bus transportation from the lot to the parks.
Theme Park Reservations
As we welcome additional Guests back to our parks, we will do so through our reservation system, which was implemented due to capacity limits when the parks reopened. As we have realized the benefits of reservations in helping to manage Guest visitation and provide an even better experience, our reservation system will continue and we will gradually increase attendance as our operations allow.
Protocols for Cast
At this time, based on state guidance, Cast Members must continue to maintain at least 6 feet of physical distancing from others and wear face coverings both indoors and outdoors(regardless of vaccination status). However, beginning June 15, Cast in roles that require both a face covering and a face shield now have additional secondary mitigation options. Cast may wear an N95 mask (which they can obtain from their leader) or they may use safety glasses or face shields with their Company-issued face covering.
Also, on-site temperature checks for Cast Members will be discontinued; Cast still will be required to conduct their at-home health screening, including temperature check, prior to reporting for each shift.
