Disney issues stern warning for guests not properly wearing face masks at theme parks

Face Mask Policy

New signage has been placed at all of the Disney World theme parks telling guests if they do not wear their face masks properly and using an approved mask they will be asked to leave the theme park.

Disney issues stern warning for guests not properly wearing face masks at theme parks

The new signage can be seen both inside and outside of the Disney World Theme Parks. We snagged this photo at Epcot today.

The Disney World Website still has the old policy online and does not mention the new stern warning.

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 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

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.

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.

  1. Yes. They are ridiculously strict but do not recommend or allow the ones that might actually work. ?

    Making everyone wear one of two lousy mask choices. Or else no Disney park for you!
    This, including kids who can’t wear them…not allowing masks for deaf people.

    Not inclusive and not safe.

    Actually shameful.
    Why does anyone go?

  2. Sadly, WDW’s knee jerk reaction to masks does not permit the use of highly efficient and protective masks such as medical grade O2 Canada and MeoAir, just to name two
