Walt Disney World Announces Big Change to Face Mask Rule .. @WaltDisneyWorld #FaceMasks #Disney

Disney masks

Walt Disney World has announced a big change to its face mask rules that will take affect today, Thursday, April 8, 2021.

The change? Guests may temporarily remove their face masks when actively taking outdoor photos. They also must be stationary (meaning standing in place) and maintain appropriate distance from other guests and castmembers.

Key words: Outdoor photos and temporarily.

What this means is guests can stop in for an outdoor photo, temporarily remove their masks for the photo, and then immediately put the masks back on before continuing on their day.

Guests must also continue to keep their face masks on for indoor photos, including all ride photos, even rides where the photo is taken outdoors.

This is a big change, and it only takes a few guests taking advantage of the new policy – or worse, not following it – for Disney to reverse it. Let’s hope no one ruins it for the rest.

Enjoy your day at the parks!
