VIDEO: EPCOT Debuts Diverse New Narrators for Park-Wide Face Mask Requirement Announcement

The Walt Disney World audio announcement about face coverings and social distancing has been updated once again, this time narrated by a number of diverse new narrators, including the talented voiceover actor (and Disney Parks personality) Mark Daniel.

Of course, the announcements reiterate that face coverings must be worn at all times, including when taking photos. The transcript is below:

For the health and safety of everyone, face coverings must fully cover your nose and mouth, and be worn at all times, including when taking photographs. The exception would be when eating or drinking while stationary. Guests that do not comply will be asked to leave. Wash your hands often and thoroughly. Cover your mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing and maintain physical distancing. Thank you.

We’d recently seen the face mask announcement at the Magic Kingdom updated to include the note on photographs. Now, it seems it’s being tacked on to announcements at all parks, especially after backlash caused by country singer Jason Aldean posting a photo of himself and his family without masks.

You can watch and listen to the announcement playing at EPCOT in the video below:

  1. I heard an announcement in the queues of several attractions at Animal Kingdom, particularly Flight of Passage.

  2. So, did Disney ask Jason Aldean and his family to leave??? I didn’t think so. It doesn’t bother me one way or the other, I have no problem with people taking their masks off for pictures but I do have a problem with Disney bending the rules for some but not others. Just my 2 cents worth.

  3. Since EPCOT has their World Showcase area, I was expecting the article to mention they added more translations of the mask guidance into new languages. Not so much.

  4. Yeah but people are people and Disney has to come to terms with it…people will not wear their masks as you if guests are scared of seeing a nose lips or face… don’t go to the parks because you will
