BREAKING: Guests May Take Mask-less Outdoor Photos at Walt Disney World Starting April 8th
As of today, Walt Disney World has updated their website to reflect an upcoming change in the face mask policy:
Face coverings are required for all Guests (ages 2 and up) and Cast Members, including those who have received a COVID-19 vaccine. Please bring your own face coverings and wear them at all times, except when dining or swimming. You may temporarily remove your face covering while actively eating, drinking or taking an outdoor photo*, but you must be stationary and maintain appropriate physical distancing during this time.
(*Beginning April 8)
Walt Disney World has heavily enforced mask wearing while taking photographs in the parks and beyond, but now, as long as you have enough distance from others, you will be permitted to temporarily remove your mask for an outdoor photo. Obviously, this rule does not apply to indoor locations where the spread of COVID-19 would be harder to mitigate.
