A Guide to All Current Mask Policies at the Theme Parks (Plus Our Top Tips for Wearing Them!)

by Leap on September 12, 2021 27 Orlando

Some days we get to talk about the yummiest theme park treats or our favorite roller coasters. But today, we're talking about the mask policies at the theme parks. The rapidly changing policies are keeping us froggies on our toes! Hop along to learn these updated guidelines. As mask guidelines are changing quickly, always check the current policy for your hotel, theme park and water park before you go.

Hopfully, we answer any questions you have. In addition to outlining the mask rules for each individual theme park, we'll share a few tips to make this necessary step a little more fun. (Psst ... some of these tips will also come in handy for other places, too, like if you are flying on a plane and must wear a mask during your flight.) We have a toddler, Lily, and a niece with autism, so we have had to turn over a few lily pads to find out what works best for them too.

This situation is fluid, with theme parks making adjustments to their mask policies on an ongoing basis. We are continually updating what we learn here. Let's jump in!

The Current Mask Policy at Each Individual Theme Park

Tips for Wearing Masks at the Theme Parks - Man in Mask with Castle Hat at Disney Springs

In Florida, there is no statewide mask mandate, but each theme park is free to enforce its own policy. At all theme parks, masks are optional while outdoors, but rules may differ when it comes to wearing masks in indoor spaces or onboard transportation.

As of June 15, 2021, the California mask mandate ended and theme parks can make their own mask policies. We have seen several theme parks change their mask policies to require or strongly encourage mask wearing for indoor locations since that time. Local county or city guidelines may overrule state guidelines. Similar to Florida, all of the theme parks have more relaxed rules about masks outdoors, but some parks may require masks indoors while others strongly recommend it.

Once again, we expect this to be a fluid subject as time goes on, especially since government rules on masks keep changing.

~Hopful~ Tips for Wearing Masks at the Theme Parks-People in Front of Universal Globe

The state mask mandate ended June 15, 2021, but there are regional orders in some areas that affect theme parks. Check each park's rules and guidelines before you visit. All theme parks have fully reopened. Each park (and zoo/aquarium) offers its own rules for face coverings on its website. The LA County theme parks such as Universal Studios Hollywood and Six Flags Magic Mountain have the strictest mask policies and may also check for vaccination status or for a negative COVID-19 test. Here's what you can expect.

Disneyland Resort

  • Face coverings are required for all guests ages 2 and up, regardless of vaccination status, in all indoor locations across the resort including hotels and Downtown Disney. This includes upon entering and throughout many attractions and in enclosed transportation vehicles, including shuttles and buses.
  • Face coverings remain optional for guests in outdoor common areas.
  • While guests are not required to show proof of vaccination, vaccinated guests will self-attest that they are in compliance prior to entry.
  • Guests will also attest they are aware of the state of California's strong recommendation that guests be fully vaccinated or receive a negative COVID-19 test prior to entering the theme parks when making them park reservations.
  • The facial coverings must cover the nose and mouth and fit snugly against the sides of the face.
  • The breathable covering must be secured with ties or ear loops and allow the wearer to remain hands-free.

Guests 18 and over must also show photo ID. Verification takes place when required based on theme park attendance. Children under the age of 12 are not required to show proof of vaccination or a negative test result.

Our Top Tips for Wearing Masks at the Theme Parks

Where masks are still required, try your best to be a good sport about the masks ... and don't froget to apply sunscreen to the top half of your face or you'll have telltale mask lines! And you will never have to guess what year your vacation photos were taken. Ahh! This one is from 2020-2021! Remember that crazy time?

Here’s all you need to know about wearing a face covering at the theme parks, along with some tips for finding the right mask for you, securing masks on rides and more.

Wearing Masks on Rides

We can't have masks flying all over the place, so we make sure our masks are secured and ready for roller coasters and water rides. Having a tight fit or an option of a mask that ties behind the head seems like a frogtastic plan. Bobby pins or clips can help secure a mask.

If you lose your mask on a ride, you'll have to hop into the nearest shop to buy a new mask. We've already seen a mask fly off someone's face on Hagrid's! On that note, it probably doesn't hurt to bring a few backups. (You may also want an extra if you're caught in a thunderstorm or just want to switch it out with a fresh mask midday.) It's important to stow your mask well on water rides so you do not lose it or get it wet. Bring a plastic bag to keep it dry.

Tips for Using Masks

Tips for Wearing Masks at the Theme Parks - Cinderella Bound with Mask at Disney Springs

Based on our recent outings, we've compiled some tips to make your jump back to the theme parks while wearing a mask as easy as possible:

  • Try a variety of styles to find the best fit for you.
  • Consider mask accessories such as ear savers, mask cord adjusters, headbands or hats with buttons sewn on to take pressure off the ears and get the best fit.
  • Have fun with the mask by choosing a fabric or style that is in theme with your favorite character or series.
  • Plan outfits or other wearable accessories that go with your mask.
  • Consider whether your mask is secure enough to stay put on a roller coaster. (Our earloop masks did not hold up to the task, unfortunately, but we're on a mission to find what works best!)
  • Cover your mouth and nose with the mask.
  • Make sure there are no gaps between your face and the mask.
  • Avoid touching the mask while using it.
  • Replace a damp mask.
  • Remove the mask using the straps and from behind.
  • Properly dispose of a used disposable mask.
  • Bring backup masks on your trip and to the parks.
  • Guests who wear glasses (and sunglasses) may have extra concerns about getting that perfect fit so the glasses do not fog up upon exhaling.
    • Use a mask with a nose bridge that fits over the nose.
    • Get a good seal over the nose to avoid fogging up glasses.
    • Place your glasses over the top of the mask.
    • If you still have issues with fogging, try sports or medical tape to seal the top of the mask to your nose and cheeks. Test this at home before using it at the theme parks.
    • Check with your optometrist before using any anti-fog products, soaps or shaving cream to make sure they will not damage protective coatings on the lenses and void any warranty. Some optometrists sell a glasses-safe spray to prevent fogging.
  • Bring a resealable bag to keep your mask dry on water rides or store your mask for washing.
  • Remember that wearing a mask is not a substitute for social distancing.
  • Chew some gum to keep your breath fresh.
  • Slip straws under the mask to drink when you cannot locate a safe area to remove the mask to drink.
  • Take joy in getting to remove the mask at the end of your day! Ahhh!
  • Take extra time in your skincare routine to prevent breakouts from masks. Wash your face before and after wearing a mask, and use moisturizer.

Tips for Children and Masks

Since children under 12 (and 2 and over) are not eligible to be vaccinated, you should plan for them to wear a mask. You might be able to understand why they need to wear the mask at this time, but your small tadpole might need some help with this concept. (OK, a lot of help in some cases!) Try your best to make it fun and positive (and keep your real opinions to yourself if you are not a fan). Model positive mask attitudes and your tadpole will hopfully get on board with it.

Our toddler, Lily, really struggled with wearing a face covering at first. But she agreed to wear a mask if it had Minnie Mouse on it. She helped pick out some Disney masks and practiced playing in them at home. Now that she understands that the mask allows her to go to theme parks to have fun, she's on board. It's not always easy to manage kids and masks, but we know to take frequent mask breaks in appropriate areas to drink or have snacks. That makes it easier to keep the mask on when we need to.

Here are a few tips for getting your children to wear masks:

  • Tips for Wearing Masks at the Theme Parks - Girl with Mask Loops Wrapped Around HeadbandTry different fabrics and styles (ear loop versus elastic bands or ties that go behind the head).
  • Use kid-size masks for tadpoles.
  • Consider kid-size mask accessories such as ear savers, mask cord adjusters, headbands or hats with buttons sewn on them to take pressure off the ears and get the best fit.
  • Got ears? Here's a hopful hack. If the ear loops begin to bother you or your tadpole, loop them around an ear headband to take pressure off your own ears.
  • Practice wearing masks at home.
  • Find fun fabrics that display their favorite characters.
  • Make a story about wearing the mask.
  • Make the mask part of a game of pretend, such as a secret identity.
  • Get your tadpole's doll or stuffed animal a matching mask.
  • Help your tadpole teach their doll or animal why it's important to wear the mask.

Tips for Wearing Masks at the Theme Parks - Mickey Tsum Tsum in Mask

  • Choose a breathable material.
  • Consider the weather when choosing the mask.
  • Have backups in case you lose the mask or get it dirty.
  • Teach children to dispose of the mask safely when using a disposable mask, or where to put a reusable mask for safekeeping until it can be washed.
  • Keep a close eye on your kids and utilize frequent snacks and water breaks to allow them a moment to breathe freely.

~Hopful~ Tips for Wearing Masks at the Theme Parks-Mom and daughter in Disney masksIf you are not able to make your own masks, you can find many toadally cute masks online. You can purchase fun, themed masks in the parks. But definitely arrive with your own or you won't make it through security at most parks. Plus you may want to match your outfit to the mask! It makes wearing a face covering so much more bearable if you look good.

What About Mask Policies for Guests with Special Needs?

We’re seeing a lot of questions about tadpoles with special needs and masks. We do not yet have all the answers and the situation is rapidly changing, but we know that exceptions can vary per park and new guidelines pop up all of the time. Contact the parks and hotels you plan to visit to get specific answers to your questions.

If someone in your party has a disability or medical problem that prevents them from wearing a mask all day, you can request accommodations at Universal. You must arrive in a face covering and bring a face shield with you. Hop into Guest Services or Guest Relations. With accommodations, you may wear a face shield, although shields are not permitted on certain attractions. You would have to switch into a face covering to ride. Guests who receive accommodations will receive a wristband at Universal. Face shields must cover the nose and mouth, wrap around the sides of the face and extend to below the chin.

Disney World requires that all guests 2 and up wear a face covering in indoor locations, plus a few select other areas. There is no accommodation for people who cannot wear masks. Guests who cannot wear a mask are asked to reschedule their trip for a later time.

At LEGOLAND California, exceptions are made for people who are hearing impaired, and companions who are communicating with them. No note is required. If you have a disability that prevents you from wearing a face covering and have questions about the policies and how they may impact you or those in your party, please contact LEGOLAND Guest Services prior to your visit. You must bring a note from a physician or qualified health care provider stating that the party member has a medical or mental health condition or developmental disability that prevents them from wearing a face covering. Those exempted from the requirement must remain at least 6 feet away from guests not in their party and wear wristbands while in the resort so that LEGOLAND personnel know not to ask them to reapply face coverings.

At the San Diego Zoo, talk to an employee if a member of your party cannot wear a mask. People with a disability may wear a face shield with a cloth drape at the bottom instead.

Clear Panels

If you or someone in your party is hearing impaired and reads lips, you can find masks that have clear panels so the mouth is visible. At Disney, the face covering may have an integrated transparent plastic panel to aid in viewing the wearer's mouth. The face covering must be made of fabric with a solid plastic panel that contains no openings. The panel must be attached to the fabric on all sides using tight-knit stitching. The covering must meet all other face covering requirements.

Wearing a Mask with Sensory Issues

In terms of autism or sensory issues, the best way to prepare for wearing a mask is to model that behavior, explain that it is a rule, take baby steps and practice, practice, practice. Be sure to find the most comfortable mask for the individual. Each person is different. But many people with ASD like to know the plan and what to expect. In this case, you'll need to make the unfamiliar — wearing a mask — a more familiar and expected part of the routine.

Look for a mask with a preferred character on it. If you cannot make one, you can find a large selection online. Choose a mask made from a soft, comfortable fabric. Try a jersey knit (T-shirt) material (even if you are choosing a different material for other family members). A mask that ties in the back may be more comfortable than one with elastic ear loops. Use mask accessories that take the pressure off ears, such as ear savers or a soft headband or hat with buttons sewn on it to wrap the ear loops around.

You may need to start with just holding the mask and slowly work up to wearing it for short periods of time. It can help to wear the mask while distracted with a fun activity.

Make a mask-wearing social story. You can even find some free examples online to explain that we need to wear a mask when we go places because of COVID-19. Basically, your social story can cover these points:

  • People in our family and community are wearing masks.
  • My mask keeps me safe.
  • My mask keeps you safe.
  • Your mask keeps me safe.
  • There are many different masks.
  • We can buy a mask or make our own.
  • We can decorate the mask.
  • It's important to wash our hands before putting on the mask and when we remove it.
  • The mask covers our nose, mouth and chin.
  • The mask might not feel comfortable at first.
  • With practice, we can get used to the mask.
  • We can wash the fabric mask.
  • We can throw away a disposable mask.
  • Next time, we can wear a new mask.
  • Wearing a mask keeps everyone safe.

Do they sell masks inside Disney Hollywood Studios? I've read that they sell them at Disney Springs but can I find them is inside the park as well?

Jul 31, 2020 at 10:09 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Byron!

Disney's Hollywood Studios has a vending machine for disposable masks just outside of the temperature check, but the park also sells a variety of reusable cloth mask designs at the stores inside the gates. Hope this helps!

Hi Alexander!

Lifeguards at Universal's Volcano Bay actually wear balaclavas! Gaiter styles are permitted at both Universal Orlando and SeaWorld Orlando (but not Disney). Hope this helps!

If you have over the ear loop mask, invest or use a lanyard! If your mask falls off on a ride it won't fly away. It's also great for when you sit down to eat as you don't have to shove it into a pocket or put it down on the table. Just make sure to throw it over your shoulder when using the restroom!!!!

Cedar Point requires face masks, but what if we wanna take them off just for a selfie in front of one of the rides, but put them back on shortly afterwards? Will we get in trouble if we remove the masks just for a quick second to get a photo?

Jun 16, 2020 at 8:44 p.m. Rebecca Gugler Says...

Medical research and doctors agree that masks come with risks - hypoxia, carbon dioxide poisoning, increased anxiety and stress - while the benefits are doubtful. Wherever you stand on this issue - we should all agree that where there is a risk, there should be a choice. Please advocate for making masks voluntary and especially for granting exemptions. Thank you.

Jun 16, 2020 at 8:16 p.m. Jen Says...

You mention that at WDW ear loops or ties are required for face masks. Is that true for universal as well?

Jun 17, 2020 at 8:41 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Jen!

Face coverings are also required at Universal, but your options are a little more varied :) At Universal, acceptable face coverings include masks with ear loops or that tie around the head, bandanas (as long as it’s secured over nose/mouth) or gaiters.

Hoppy planning!

Reality- we are in a pandemic- accept it- live with it and know it will end once we get our act together. Who knows how long, but it will end. For us, when Disneyland/ World is closed, it means something drastic has happened and there is a loss of hope like when 9/11 happened it closed. So if you don't want to wear a mask- don't go. If you do, consider the people who work there in the heat every day in a mask doing everything they can to make sure you have a great experience. They are doing everything they can to keep you safe so please do everything you can to keep them safe. We do not have all the information and we are getting misinformation all the time. I would rather wear a mask than risk someones health/ life.

Jun 16, 2020 at 2:14 a.m. Marcy Says...

Thank you for all the mask info. We are still up in the air if we will use our November reservation as have small children with us. Can you please let us know what type of mask you find will work best on roller coasters? Thanks, again!

Jun 17, 2020 at 8:21 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Marcy!

We tightened our ear loop masks before hopping on coasters, and so far, they have survived some big coasters! Being able to tighten them made all the difference. However, for walking around all day, we definitely prefer the tie backs to take the pressure off of our ears. Hope this helps!

Keep hopping!

I appreciate your advice and attempts at positive spin, but even though we had the thinnest possible masks, it really put a damper on our trip. I appreciate Universal trying to be open, but we would never again try to vacation where masks are required. Volcano Bay (where masks aren't required except to enter restaurants and stores) was our best, most normal day. On our final day in the parks, where humidity made it feel over 100 degrees and we were pouring sweat, we had to leave early because the masks made it so uncomfortable. That will only get worse as the summer wears on...

Jun 15, 2020 at 11:06 p.m. Diane Says...

Thumbs up to anti-mask. Spoken w/multiple medical professionals who agree masks pretty much do nothing. Compare it to birth control - buy a product and poke holes in. Results will vary. Rebreathing that rotten air throughout the day will be far more harmful.

This would have been our 56 trip - tons of money - and are stock holders. Sneezed on, spit on, coughed on, vomited on @ WDW by who knows where since '71.

Masks optional - ok. Masks will ruin WDW.

Set the parks free.

Jun 15, 2020 at 6:06 p.m. Pris Says...

Or, WDW and Universal will learn masks aren't useful and will stop the riduclous requirement once they see how much additional revenue they lose from people not wanting to bother with it.

Jun 15, 2020 at 9:51 p.m. josh mahony Says...

facts lol forcing people to wear a mask is ridiculous. People going to a theme park right now aren't worried about a virus with a less then 1 percent death rate

Jun 15, 2020 at 6:05 p.m. Kathleen Says...

We have been frequent visitors to Disney World and the hotels in the past. In fact we were there right before this all hit but we're not going if we have to wear a mask and pay that kind of money to be miserable and fight with the kids. That ruins the entire experience. We are frequenting and supporting those places that are not requiring the wearing of masks. We'll consider going to Lego Land this year.

Jun 13, 2020 at 8:10 p.m. Blanca Says...

My son is seriously autistic and will absolutely not wear a face mask. We’ve tried so hard to get him to wear one and he just will not. Does this mean he won’t be able to get inside the theme park without wear a mask? My other three kids are fine with wearing a mask. It’s just my 4yr. Old.

Jun 17, 2020 at 3:44 a.m. looking for refund Says...

We are annual pass holders and live in Florida. We have been to the park in the summer and on a good day, you can be overcome by the heat. Having to wear a mask and breathe your own air will make you pass out! Is the park ready to handle that? I saw a video of Disney in China being able to handle it, well they are used to wearing a mask and do not have the humidity that Florida does. I have grandchildren who will not keep them on and a Daughter that has anxiety issues so wearing a mask is not an option for her, its bad enough she cannot even be in large crowds. Mask does nothing for the wearer! You only need a mask according to all the major experts in this virus if you have it. Florida in July through September is hot enough without adding a mask and children will not take well to this if they are not used to wearing one. Also, who wants to go if there are no parades, fireworks and character meet and greets? Also, no character dining. I would prefer to wait until this settles down and take my chance without being made to wear a mask. I do not want to pay for those months that I do not feel my family could go not and enjoy the experience.

Jun 15, 2020 at 3:53 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Blanca!

At this time, LEGOLAND is the only theme park that recommends that those with medical conditions not wear face coverings (and face coverings are recommended, but not required, at LEGOLAND); other parks, including Disney World, Universal and SeaWorld Orlando all currently require masks.

Keep hopping!


Jun 6, 2020 at 2:36 p.m. Merriweather Pleasure Says...

Fortunately for Disney, COVID19 won't infect you when you eat or drink and it doesn't affect children under 2. If it did, they would really be in trouble financially with the parks. Has anyone tested face coverings yet when it 99 outside with a relative humidity of 100%? A lot of people are going to find out the hard way how miserable this can be. I will be vacationing elsewhere until the cooler weather arrives.

Oct 22, 2020 at 3:47 p.m. Rita Says...

It was pretty bad this summer in VA wearing them at work- we're required to wear them outside while walking on work grounds. I work in an industrial environment and have been in situations where I can't replace my soaked mask until the job is done. I won't be going anywhere on vacation that requires a mask
