As COVID is evolving, so are Disney mask rules at their theme parks around the globe.
The Nerds have been known to stuff a Mickey Pretzel (not a whole one, we are not animals!) under a mask to enjoy the bready/salty goodness indoors without violating the Disney mask policy.
Here is an update of what you can expect park by park!
Disneyland Resort: Anaheim, California, USA
Disney mask rules are changing quickly in the U.S., including at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure. Effective February 17, Disneyland Resort will no longer require vaccinated guests to wear masks indoors; though unvaccinated guests are required to continue wearing masks when indoors. All guests are still required to wear masks on enclosed transportation including the monorail.

Walt Disney World Resort: Orlando, Florida, USA
Disney World was the first resort to drop the Disney mask rules in 2021, before reinstating them. Disney World lead the way again in 2022 and the indoor mask requirement for all parks including Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom has been eliminate for vaccinated guests. Unvaccinated guests are required to continue wearing masks when indoors while all guests, even those who are vaccinated, are required to wear masks on “All enclosed transportation, including buses monorails and Disney Skyliner” according to the web site.

Tokyo Disney Resort: Urayasu, Japan
Asia’s approach to masks and, by default, Disney mask rules are still in full effect. In fact, they are much more stringent in Tokyo than the United States. Once you have entered Tokyo Disneyland or Tokyo DisneySea, masks are required by all guests at all times, unless they are dining. As you can see, they make some accommodations for the hot and muggy summer season.

Disneyland Paris Resort: Chessy, France
Parts of Europe have been making changes to mask mandates quickly and the same can be said of the Disney mask rules for Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park at Disneyland Paris. Like Tokyo, Disneyland Paris requires all guests to wear masks at all times, unless they are dining or taking a selfie at designated stations. Unlike Asia, France is expected to lift some portions of its mandate in February which is likely to impact Disney mask policy in Paris.

Hong Kong Disneyland Resort: Lantau Island, Hong Kong
Back to Asia! Hong King Disneyland is reflective of the other parks in Asia. Disney mask rules remain the most stringent and, like Tokyo and Shanghai, guests visiting Hong Kong Disneyland are required to wear masks all times, unless they are dining.

Shanghai Disney Resort: Shanghai, China
As we complete our review of Disney mask rules around the globe, we come to Shanghai where rules are less stringent than other parts of Asia. Like Hong Kong and Tokyo, guests visiting Shanghai Disneyland are required to wear masks in queuing areas indoors and when social distancing cannot be maintained. Unlike the other parks, Disney mask rules in Shanghai do not require them to be worn when outside and socially distanced.
