Could a future trip to Walt Disney World might not mean mask wearing? On Thursday, May 14th, the CDC released new information regarding masks requirements for those who are fully vaccinated lifting indoor and outdoor mask requirements. What does this mean for those visiting Walt Disney World in the future?
“Today’s guidance that we got from the CDC in terms of those that were vaccinated do not necessarily need to wear masks anymore, both outdoors and indoors is very big news for us,” Disney CEO Bob Chapek said in the call with analysts.
This new information could be a big for those visiting Disney this summer. Chapek states that “Particularly if anybody’s been in Florida in the middle of the summer with a mask on. That could be quite daunting,” he said. “We think that’s going to make for an even more pleasant experience.”
