Disneyland theme park in California will be ending its mask requirements for fully vaccinated guests on June 15. The park also stated that it won’t require guests to show proof of vaccination. Guests over the age of 2 who are not vaccinated will still be required to wear a mask. Disneyland is also nixing its on-site temperature checks. Guests riding on the bus from the Toy Story parking lot (which is set to reopen on June 18th) will still be required to wear appropriate face coverings while on the vehicle. The limits of social distancing in the park will be decided by the individuals. Until now, admission was largely limited to California residents, with some theme parks making exceptions for out-of-state visitors with proof of vaccination.
Even though theme parks are allowed to return to full capacity based on the California Department of Public Heath’s statement, that doesn’t mean things will return to pre-pandemic conditions. Disneyland visitors should note that the FastPass system for cutting attraction wait times is still not available. The Walt Disney Company had to shutter the iconic theme park in mid-March of 2020 as the coronavirus pandemic hit the U.S. Walt Disney World reopened last July, while Disneyland remained closed for 13 months.
