After over two years, face masks are now a completely optional aspect of Guests’ Disney vacation, whether they choose the Walt Disney World Resort in Central Florida or the Disneyland Resort in Southern California.
Less than a week after Disney World announced that it would no longer enforce mask mandates on bus and monorail transportation, we at Disney Fanatic have confirmation that Disneyland will also no longer enforce mask mandates on its “enclosed Disney transportation” systems.
According to the Disneyland website,
It is strongly recommended that Guests wear face coverings when indoors and in enclosed transportation. Face coverings are required for all Guests (ages 2 and older), regardless of vaccination status, in certain indoor health settings, such as in First Aid. Face coverings are optional for Guests in outdoor areas.

This news also follows a federal judge in Florida’s decision to strike down further enforcement of the mask mandate on public transportation, and the announcement from the TSA and several major airlines and rail lines that they will no longer force their passengers to wear face coverings. It also comes after normal, hug-friendly character meet and greets returned to all of Disney’s U.S. Theme Parks including Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park.
The update appears to suggest that mask wearing will no longer be enforced on the Disneyland Monorail System that takes Guests in and out of the Theme Park with stops in Tomorrowland and the Downtown Disney District. It also comes at an already exciting time for The Happiest Place On Earth as nighttime spectacles like Disneyland Forever, The Main Street Electrical Parade and World of Color all recently made their return.
It should be mentioned that like Disney World, Disneyland is not requiring Guests go through any form of vaccination status check.
We at Disney Fanatic will continue to update our readers on Disney Park news as more information comes to light.
