The safety and well-being of our Guests and employees remain the top priority of The Walt Disney Company.

The 4 Walt Disney World theme parks are now open.

We have taken enhanced health and safety measures. Follow all posted instructions while visiting Walt Disney World Resort. An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present.

Since reopening, theme parks, Disney Resort hotels, restaurants, attractions, experiences and other offerings may be modified and will be limited in capacity and subject to limited availability or closure, based on direction from health experts and government officials to promote physical distancing.

Additionally, attractions, experiences, services and amenities may have limited availability or may remain closed. We will provide more information as it becomes available. We reserve the right to cancel any reservations, admission media or purchases and provide applicable refunds.

Top Things to Know Before You Go:
Reservation System
Park attendance will be managed via the Disney Park Pass reservation system. To enter a park, both a park reservation and valid admission for the same park on the same date are required for Guests ages 3 and up.

Face Coverings
Face coverings are required for all Guests (ages 2 and up) and Cast Members, including those who have received a COVID-19 vaccine. Please bring your own face coverings and wear them at all times, except when dining or swimming. You may temporarily remove your face covering while actively eating, drinking or taking an outdoor photo, but you must be stationary and maintain appropriate physical distancing during this time.

All face coverings (whether disposable or reusable) must:

  1. Be made with at least 2 layers of breathable material
  2. Fully cover the nose and mouth and secure under the chin
  3. Fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face
  4. Be secured with ties or ear loops and allow the Guest to remain hands-free

At this time, based on guidance from health authorities, neck gaiters, open-chin triangle bandanas and face coverings containing valves, mesh material or holes of any kind are not acceptable face coverings.

Costume masks are also not considered appropriate and are prohibited from being worn, in alignment with our existing rules.

Face coverings may have an integrated transparent plastic panel to aid in viewing the wearer’s mouth. These face coverings must:

  1. Be a fabric face covering featuring a solid plastic panel containing no openings that is attached to the fabric on all sides using tight knit stitching
  2. Meet all face covering requirements listed above

The use of face coverings is not a substitute for physical distancing.

Temperature Screenings
Temperature screenings may be required for entry to some locations. Upon arrival at Disney Springs area or at the Walt Disney World theme parks, you may undergo a temperature screening with no-touch thermometers.

Based on guidance from health authorities, anyone displaying a temperature of 100.4 F (38 C) or above will be directed to an additional location for rescreening and assistance. Those with temperatures of 100.4 F (38 C) or above will not be allowed entry; those in their party will not be allowed entry either.

Also, it’s highly recommended to have a cashless or contactless form of payment.

Please contact your Travel Agent for additional Know Before You Go information, Disney Park Pass System questions and modifications to existing reservations.
