UPDATE: Disney Clarifies Guest Relations Miscommunication Regarding Face Shields, All Guests Still Require Standard Masks

Despite earlier reports from Guest Relations Cast Members stating that guests requesting alternative accommodations would be able to wear face shields in lieu of face masks (with some restrictions), Walt Disney World has issued clarification stating that all guests will still be required to wear standard face masks.

Guest Relations Cast Members were informed of this change, reportedly set to go into effect tomorrow, July 14. Initially they were instructed to provide face shields for guests, but that was later changed. It’s unknown if face shields will become an alternative accommodation in the future, but for now Disney has confirmed that all guests over the age of 2 must wear a face mask.

Universal Orlando Resort has implemented the use of face shields for guests with disabilities; guests must wear a specific wristband issued by Guest Services after requesting alternate accommodations.
