Restrictions and Covid Rules at Walt Disney World Florida in Full
Joe Biden has given the green light to European travelers to return to the United States, reopening the transatlantic corridor for flights to and from the United Kingdom.
Considered an extremely important step for airlines and vacation establishments, lifting the restrictions is expected to see tens of thousands of vacationers arriving in the United States in a matter of weeks.
But with the end of the Covid-19 pandemic, airlines have been significantly damaged.
British Airways owner IAG expects a loss of 7.3 billion euros in 2020 and 2021, while Virgin Atlantic was on the verge of collapse before the news broke.
The two companies derive most of their profits from transatlantic flights, with around four million British nationals landing in the United States each year.
1.4 million British tourists visited Florida each year before the closures began, many of whom were heading to famous Walt Disney World Florida.
What are the Covid-19 restrictions in Florida?
Florida has had a more laissez-faire approach to Covid-19 measures and has one of the highest death tolls of any state.
In May 2021, Governor Ron DeSantis signed a bill banning vaccine passports. This means you won’t have to show your vaccine status when entering establishments, including restaurants, malls, or attractions.
Florida recommends but does not require the public to wear face coverings.
Several large counties such as Miami-Dade and Palm Beach had requirements, but DeSantis signed an executive order prohibiting them from enforcing those measures.
However, these rules do not exactly apply directly to Disney World Orlando.
What are the Covid-19 restrictions at Disney World Florida?
All Disney World parks in Florida are now open except Typhoon Lagoon.
Unlike the rest of Florida, the parks have their own set of rules and restrictions.
All guests two years of age and over are required to wear a face covering indoors, whether or not they are fully immunized. Face masks in outdoor common areas are optional.
The rules state that face masks must fit snugly over the nose and mouth, and masks with valves are not allowed.
Upon entering Disney World Florida, you will no longer be subject to on-site temperature checks and you will be able to “self-determine” your own social distancing.
Some parks may limit their capacity to avoid queues and overcrowded restaurants, and all entrances must be reserved in advance.
