Walt Disney World Park Guests Now Being Asked to Not Walk with Masks Off While Eating or Drinking
Looking to enjoy a Dole Whip while strolling through Adventureland? Or snack on a Mickey ice cream bar while walking to your favorite attraction? Well, you may need to start including a break in your park routine if you planned on enjoying those drinks or snacks while on the go.
According to multiple reporters that we’ve had around the Walt Disney World theme parks today, guests are now being asked to stop and remain stationary, standing off to the side, while consuming drinks and snacks. While moving throughout the park, masks must remain on.
We took a moment to stop and ask a Cast Member at EPCOT about the new rule, we were informed: “guests are now being asked to find a safe spot six feet from other guests before removing their masks to eat and drink.”
Do keep in mind that face masks are strictly enforced and guests not wearing the required face mask will be asked to either put one on or leave. If you find yourself needing to take a break from the mask, remember there are “relaxation stations” in every Walt Disney World theme park. Once inside these stations, guests may remove their face covering and have a socially-distanced sit-down.
Of course, follow along with us at WDWNT as we continue to cover the phased reopenings of the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks.
