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

by Leap on April 15, 2022 28 Orlando

Tips for Wearing Masks at Theme Parks - PinterestSome 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're 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. Mask rules are changing as the holidays approach so be prepared for anything. 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. Universal Orlando updated its policy so that fully vaccinated guests are no longer required to wear face coverings indoors and on attractions, effective Feb. 12, 2022. Disney World also allows fully vaccinated guests to have the option of wearing a mask outdoors and indoors, including transportation, as of April 19, 2022. At both resorts, guests who are not vaccinated are still encouraged or expected to mask up indoors.

Individual theme park mask policies may have recently changed so check before you visit.. Masks are optional (but strongly recommended) for all guests indoors at Disneyland and for all guests on Disney transportation, such as buses and the Monorail. But bring that mask with you just in case because face coverings are still required in healthcare settings such as First Aid and in the Baby Care Centers.

Similar to Florida, most of the theme parks have more relaxed rules about masks outdoors, but some parks may require masks indoors while others strongly recommend it. Even if you think you are not taking a bus from parking or won't be needing a mask since you are all vaccinated, you might stash a face covering in your bag anyway just in case you need to visit First Aid.

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

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 2020-2022! 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.
  • 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 ages 2 to 5 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're 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 Headband

  • Try 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.

  • 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're 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 you should 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. 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. Face coverings may have an integrated transparent plastic panel without openings that is attached to the fabric on all sides using tight stitching to aid in viewing the wearer's mouth.

At LEGOLAND California, exceptions are made for people who are hearing impaired, and companions who are communicating with them. 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, 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.

Making it sound so easy for kids with Autism to wear a mask is just wrong. Some of them just can't and should not be forced to in order to have fun. There should be the alternative to at least have a negative test.

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!!!!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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...

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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
