PHOTOS: Cast Members Asking Guests to Wear Masks in Some Outdoor Queues at Walt Disney World, Free Disposable Masks Available
We are in the parks today today for the first time since Disney ended the outdoor mask requirement at Walt Disney World. Guests no longer have to wear masks while outdoors. Despite the policy change, Cast Members are asking guests to pull up their masks in some outdoor queues.
At Disney’s Hollywood Studios, we saw this in action at Toy Story Mania and Slinky Dog Dash.
Guests in the extended outdoor Toy Story Mania queue were not required to wear face masks.
As guests enter the queue proper, a Cast Member asks them to put on a mask.
Most guests waiting in the Slinky Dog Dash extended queue are unmasked. As they approach the entrance, guests are asked to don a mask.
We saw the same protocol at the Magic Kingdom as well.
Guests waiting in the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train extended outdoor queue are mostly maskless.
A Cast Member at the attractions entrance asks guests to put on their masks before entering.
Guest who have lost their face mask — or didn’t think one was needed — can obtain a disposable face mask from a Cast Member at the attraction entrance. The disposable masks are individually packed.
WDWNT will continue to monitor the new outdoor mask policies at Walt Disney World Resort.
