This morning, Walt Disney World quietly updated face mask guidelines for guests visiting the resort. While previously, guests were only allowed to remove facial coverings while actively eating or drinking, the policy has updated to allow guests to temporarily remove a face mask for an outdoor photo.
This new rule will go into effect on Thursday, April 8. This is simply an update to the previous mask guidelines that will remain in place. If you are planning on visiting Walt Disney World, please note that facial coverings must:
- Be made with at least 2 layers of breathable material
- Fully cover the nose and mouth and secure under the chin
- Fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face
- Be secured with ties or ear loops and allow the Guest to remain hands-free
Neck gaiters, open-chin triangle bandanas and face coverings containing valves, mesh material or holes of any kind are not acceptable face coverings.
At this time, it is unclear if this policy will come to the Disneyland Resort when it reopens to guests on April 30. What do you think about this update to the mask guidelines at Walt Disney World? Be sure to connect with us on Twitter and Facebook to let us know what you think!
