Walt Disney World Updates Policy Regarding Transparent Face Coverings

Walt Disney World has updated their face coverings policy to include guidelines regarding transparent face masks. Read the updated policy below:

Face coverings may have an integrated transparent plastic panel to aid in viewing the wearer’s mouth. These face coverings must be a fabric face covering featuring a solid plastic panel containing no openings that is attached to the fabric on all sides using tight knit stitching. They must also meet all face covering requirements outlined for regular face masks.

As face masks have been more widely produced, transparent face masks have grown in popularity, particularly for those who are hard of hearing and may need to read lips. Transparent face masks are different from a plastic face shield, which guests may only wear as long as they are also wearing a mask.

Walt Disney World also just updated their policy to specify anyone who has received a COVID-19 vaccine must still wear a face mask.

  1. Disney’s face mask policy is completely hypocritical. You have to wear face masks with so many specific requirements, but if you swim or eat, suddenly the face mask comes down just fine! Does covid hold itself back if people swim or eat? Being that most people swim or eat when they go to WDW, they are totally spreading covid around there. It’s like a balloon that is air tight everywhere except for a small hole that’s hissing air — the rest of its being air tight is worthless. If Disney really believed in the face mask, they would close down all pools and restaurants and anything else people can’t wear face mask in. So all these requirements are just token measures to look like Disney is keeping the parks safe, when it isn’t safe at all.

    • It’s actually not that bad if you think about it what if someone is hard of hearing or is deaf and they read lips they can’t do that trough a mask like normal but with these the can I would wear one

  2. I wore a cloth mask with a transparent window on our December 29-January 5 trip. I didn’t know what to expect. I didn’t want to be controversial; I had extra masks in my bag just in case. I wore it through temperature checks and security. Many cast members complimented me. We had multiple pictures done with memory maker. Maybe someone saw the pictures and issued this new policy. You can get them on etsy. Look for the antifog feature. Mine had Disney prints on them.
