The return to pre-pandemic magic continues forward at Disney Parks and Resorts around the world, especially at the Disneyland Resort in California, The Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, and especially at the Disneyland Paris Resort.

Today, March 14, the French Government ended its Vaccine Pass and Health Pass policies, and also, as of today, Guests will no longer need them to take in the magic at Disneyland Paris.

As France’s COVID-inspired restrictions continue to fade away at Parc Disneyland and Walt Disney Studios Park, so too, apparently, goes the need for COVID-19 testing. Disneyland Paris insider @DLPReport posted to Twitter, spreading the word that an on-property testing site in Disney Village–its version of Disney Springs–will close within the week.

He wrote:

With the end of most restrictions in France, the Covid testing center ran by Loxamed in the former Wild West Show building will be closing permanently on Saturday, March 18 at 4pm. Guests can still arrange tests at the pharmacy in the nearby Val d’Europe shopping center.

The news follows a series of recent events at Disney’s European Resort. Disneyland Paris followed her American sister resorts in ending mask mandates in all indoor and outdoor areas, save for enclosed mass transportation, and Disneyland Paris was the first Disney Resort to bring back normal–huggable–Character Meet ‘n Greets. But for a time, the seemingly normal Theme Park Experience was exclusive to those willing to get a Vaccine Pass or a Health Pass–depending on age. As of today, that is no longer needed.

There is no word yet about what new or returning attraction will fill this space.

The Disneyland Paris Resort is celebrating its 30th Anniversary, and we at Disney Fanatic will continue to share news on the Parks and celebration with our readers as it comes to light.

Elsewhere, a negative COVID-19 test and full vaccination are still required to experience Disney Cruise Line. Hong Kong Disneyland is the only Disney Park to remain closed.
