Disney to stop adding digital Facemasks to Guest Ride Photos

Face photopass

Walt Disney World Resort will no longer be digitally adding face masks onto guests in ride photos.

Disney has been adamant about their health and safety guidelines since reopening the theme parks in July. However, a social media buzz recently spread noting that the theme park had begun digitally adding masks to riders’ faces. This led to fans thinking they could still get their photos if they weren’t properly wearing a mask on a ride.

Since theme park-goers could be on a ride with people outside their group, if someone slipped their mask off covertly on the ride and were captured in the group photo, no one could get that photo. The digitally-added masks allowed for those in the photo properly wearing their face masks to get the photos.

In any event, Disney World says it will not be digitizing face masks over guests’ faces any longer.

In response to guest requests, we tested modifying some ride photos. We are no longer doing this and continue to expect guests to wear face coverings except when actively eating or drinking while stationary.

Disney is still enforcing their current face mask policy for the foreseeable future. They ask all guests to comply with face coverings and monitor their physical distance from others.
