Disney has made changes to their face mask policy this weekend including guests can now eat and drink again while walking outdoors at Disney World! This exciting change to Walt Disney World’s face mask policy enables more freedom and enjoyment whilst walking around the parks. Particularly for guests attending 2021 Taste of EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival!

Previously, face masks were mandatory throughout all aspects of guest’s magical visit at Walt Disney World. Likewise, prior to eating and drinking, it was mandatory for guests standing, waiting or sitting in dining locations to also wear a mask. Furthermore, guests were required to wear a mask until they were eating or drinking. However, if the food or drink was not at a table service like restaurant, guests had to stand while eating and drinking and once finished to reapply their face covering.

Many further changes are also coming into effect with reduction of COVID-19 rules, including removing the plexiglass dividers from many rides and attractions, which we have seen recently! Particularly, as earlier this week Disney lowered the physical distancing guidelines from 6 feet down to 3 feet. Disney World have also announced that park Capacity is increasing and that these changes should help handle the growing attendance at the Disney World Theme Parks!

Disney have updated their official face mask regulations on their website, showing that it is optional to wear a face mask outdoors, allowing guests to eat and drink whilst walking outdoors around Disney World! However, face masks must be worn upon entering and throughout all attractions, inside all theatres, including entrances, to be worn on all transportation as well as all indoor locations.

Hopefully, when it is safe to do so, further restrictions will reduce but for now, Disney continue to do a great job keeping guests and cast members alike safe!
