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.

  1. Yasssss!! Who would have thought this news would make me so happy lol. But its just one step closer to a sense of normalcy

  2. Cause taking a maskless photo means that covid will respect that
    Just remove the masks already. The only reason that they have it is virtue signaling HEY LOOK WE CARE ABOUT YOUR SAFETY. Please stop caring about my safety. My safety and how I live my life is MY decision. So if I don’t wanna wear a mask for my protection, then I don’t have to wear a mask. We don’t limit the amount of fast food people are allowed to eat per week because obesity rates are high. And if we did then it would be no no because we are addicted to fast food.
    Stop caring about my safety

    • You not wearing a mask effects other people. Don’t kill someone’s grandma just for your self righteous indignity.

    • Well, that is a very selfish and frankly unamerican take. Also, just know that you are not the only one with this mindset right now, which greatly saddens me. I hope you can put yourself in others’ shoes.

      Aside from the elderly, there are many Americans with pre-existing conditions that render them very susceptible to Covid-19. There also many who do not even know they are susceptible.

      So, while you personally may not care, and do not mind rolling the dice, I believe you should show empathy to your fellow American and try protecting their lives instead.

      This is why this “mask infringing upon freedom” argument is so fallible.

      Similarly, yes, we do have Freedom of Speech but that does not give us the right to randomly scream “Fire!” in a movie theater since that puts fellow Americans in danger (from the ensuing panic).

      I hope that my thoughts can come through to you. It is only with this mindset at the citizen level can the US return to form as the greatest country that the rest of the world admires and can only hope to emulate.

      • If you are elderly and/or have pre-existing conditions, why are you going to a theme park or any similar public place in the first place? Masks are definitely not 100% effective; thus, your argument that it’s ok for these folks to go to Disneyworld as long as everyone wears a mask rings hollow. If you think it’s ok for such people to go, then you don’t care about them, either. Additionally, people with co-morbidities or elderly people who choose to go to Disneyworld made the conscious choice to go and risk getting the virus. So their selfish choice dictates what others must do? That sounds unamerican to me.

        Additionally, your assertion that “many … do not even know they are susceptible” doesn’t make any sense. What do you mean many do not even know they are susceptible? Susceptible to what? Getting infected with Covid? Are you seriously making that argument? Or do you mean that they do not know the risks of getting infected? Or do you mean that they are unaware of the virus’s existence? Or do you mean that they don’t know if they are in a high-risk group? This argument does not support your position at all.

        Finally, your comparison to shouting “Fire!” in a crowded theater is misplaced. When someone yells “Fire!” in a crowded theater, that person intends to cause panic and harm. Hence, if a person innocently yells “Fire!” in a crowded theater, there is no punishment or prohibition. Your comparison works only if a person knowingly or with conscious indifference infects another with the virus. Healthy, asymptomatic people who do not wear masks are not intentionally or with conscious indifference trying to infect anyone with Covid.

  3. These transition periods from no-vaccine to partially-vaccinated and then to (hopefully) fully/herd-vaccinated are going to be rocky. We’ll likely be seeing more videos/stories of the crazies who think that rules for the benefit of whole community all do not apply to them . . . Good luck to the CMs!!

    • what is the magic requirement that makes it the right time to loosen restrictions. 100% vaccination rate? not gonna happen. herd immunity? Every month we push it back a month despite faster vaccine rates every month. so when WHEN is it ok to take a maskless photo

  4. has lord democrat demming approved of this? after all, that dem calls all the shots in orange county it seems.

  5. Finally! And thanks for clarifying that the jab doesn’t stop you from going maskless!
