Recently a Disney World Cast Member was yelled at and spit on while trying to enforce Disney’s FaceMask policies according to an article from the Orlando Sentinel.
A Security Guard working at Disney’s Contemporary Resort last week reminded a guest he needed to wear his facemask while at the resort just moments before the guest went off on them.
“I’m a guest,” yelled the middle-aged, fedora-wearing man. He asked to be left alone and then spit at the Disney Cast Member.
This is just one of many confrontations on Disney property in recent weeks as some guests have angrily refused to follow Disney’s Facemask rules.
Some of these confrontations have led to guests being arrested, although not in this case of the spitting man. He disappeared into the resort before being identified.
Here are the most up to date rules for Facemasks at Walt Disney World
Face coverings are required for all Guests (ages 2 and up) and Cast Members, including those who have received a COVID-19 vaccine. 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 must 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.
Face coverings may have an integrated transparent plastic panel to aid in viewing the wearer’s mouth. These face coverings must:
- Be a fabric face covering featuring a solid plastic panel containing no openings that is attached to the fabric on all sides using tight knit stitching
- Meet all face covering requirements listed above
The use of face coverings is not a substitute for physical distancing
