Walt Disney World Reportedly Restricting Use of Gaiters as Face Coverings; Face Masks with Ear Loops Enforced Per Resort-wide Requirement
Ahead of the Walt Disney World parks reopening to the public, the resort has begun to enforce its rule that guests wear traditional face masks.
Previously, neck gaiters, though not “secured with ties or ear loops” as the guidelines state, had been tolerated. Theme Park Shark on Twitter is reporting that they are no longer being allowed, with guests being asked to wear a traditional face mask.
A WDWNT reporter has confirmed that their neck gaiter had been allowed at the Magic Kingdom preview yesterday, so while the guideline itself isn’t new, the enforcement of it is. At this time, it’s unknown how these restrictions will apply for gaiters with ear loops.
