UPDATE: Walt Disney World Relaxes Face Mask Policy A Day Early, PhotoPass Photographers Now Shooting Mask-less Guests

Despite the announcement yesterday that maskless photography would be permitted starting on April 8th, Disney’s PhotoPass photographers allowed (and encouraged) guests to remove their masks this morning. Until now, photographers were enforcing the COVID-19 safety protocol of wearing masks even while taking photographs.

Signs are still up with the official guidelines requiring masks to be worn when taking photographs. However, PhotoPass photographers were actively asking guests to remove masks for photos.

Three of the signs are visible in this photo. In the center, a couple takes photos without masks on.

However, we found PhotoPass photographers around Cinderella Castle allowing guests to remove their masks.

It wasn’t a one-off occurrence, either. Several photographers in different locations were all allowing mask removal.

It is unclear if this is an official property-wide decision.

Oh, gee, thank you Disney, for allowing me my freedom and civil liberty for a mere 30 seconds, and 1 day early at that!

How, exactly is wearing a mask infringing on your “freedom and civil liberty”? Oh…that’s right, it’s not. Here’s an option…don’t like the rules…don’t go. It really is as simple as that.
