Walt Disney World Updates Face Covering Policy to Officially Ban Masks with Valves, Mesh Material, or Holes of Any Kind

Walt Disney World is changing, adapting, and modifying as needed since their phased reopening. We recently shared that an update to Disney’s face covering policy includes remaining stationary while eating or drinking. Now, Disney has caught on to another issue regarding masks with valves, mesh material, or holes of any kind and has made an update to their policy

 

As shared on the Walt Disney World website under “Face Coverings”:

Face coverings are required for all Guests (ages 2 and up) and Cast Members. Please bring your own face coverings and wear them at all times, except when dining or swimming. You may remove your face covering while actively eating or drinking, but you should be stationary and maintain appropriate physical distancing.

All face coverings (whether disposable or reusable) must:

  • Be made with at least two 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

At this time, based on guidance from health authorities, neck gaiters, open-chin triangle bandanas, and face coverings containing valves, mesh material or holes of any kind are not acceptable face coverings.

For a no obligation, FREE Quote with new bookings contact our sponsor Magical Vacation Planner by calling: 1(407)442-0289 Or for a free no obligation quote with new bookings you can fill out the form by Clicking HERE!

Costume masks are also not considered appropriate and are prohibited from being worn, in alignment with our existing rules.

The use of face coverings is not a substitute for physical distancing.
