(Reuters) -Disney World and other U.S. amusement parks updated their mask policy following the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) this week.

Masks have been made optional in outdoor areas and pool decks at Walt Disney (NYSE:DIS) Inc's Disney World in Orlando, Florida, effective May 15, but are still needed for entering rides and at indoor locations, according to the guidelines posted on its website.

Universal Orlando has also relaxed its mask policy for guests at outdoor locations. "Face coverings will remain required at all indoor locations, including restaurants, shops, and indoor hotel public areas," the company said in a statement on Friday.

SeaWorld (NYSE:SEAS) Entertainment Inc said on Saturday masks will no longer be required for guests at SeaWorld Orlando, SeaWorld San Antonio, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, Discovery (NASDAQ:DISCA) Cove, Aquatica Orlando, Aquatica San Antonio, Busch Gardens Williamsburg and Water Country USA for customers who are fully vaccinated.

"All park employees will be required to continue to wear face coverings," a SeaWorld spokeswoman said on Saturday.

The CDC on Thursday advised that fully vaccinated people do not need to wear masks outdoors and can avoid wearing them indoors in most places.

This just shows what a bunch of trained monkeys most Americans are. Nobody has the right to tell you when you can breathe fresh air inside or out.

biden dennis - I hate to tell you this but both the CDC and MIT have released reports that masks and social distancing does nothing.  As well, the CDC released a report that the common FLU is deadlier than COVID19.  Finally, name-calling is a sign of a simple mind.

The State of California is going to demand that the parks ask people for identification to prove they are vaccinated and/or live in the State. I thought asking for ID, aka voter ID, was racist.
