Walt Disney World to Drop Mask Requirement this Summer? Disney CEO Bob Chapek Sounds Hopeful

Will Walt Disney World no longer require guests to wear masks this summer? During an investor call, Disney CEO Bob Chapek said the CDC’s announcement that face masks are no longer required for vaccinated people is big news for Walt Disney World. He went so far as hinting that masks may no longer be required come Florida’s hot summer months.

…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, particularly if anybody’s been in Florida in the middle of the summer with a mask on. That could be quite daunting. So we think that’s going to make for an even more pleasant experience.

He did not give a specific time frame for when masks would be no longer be needed at Walt Disney World, but he sounded hopeful that the requirement would soon come to an end.

In other news, Chapek also announced that capacity had been increased at Walt Disney World parks.

“In terms of the parks, and when we’re going to sort of be able to raise our capacity limits, we’ve actually already started that, given the guidance that just came today, from the CDC, and earlier guidance that we got from the governor of Florida, we’ve already started to increase our capacities.”

I think disney world needs to go maskless and fast. There are so many people cooped up that have been had the vaccine but can not wear mask due to the heat or health issues. My family personally can not travel due to this mandate. Its been a struggle to find somewhere to go that we don’t have to wear mask. So we will not be doing a trip to disney world until we don’t have to wear mask.
