Walt Disney World® Resort recently updated its mask guidelines in regards to taking pictures, allowing guests to capture memories without face coverings on. Such a change doesn't come without regulations, and masks are still required at most times in the parks. Here are Disney's current rules:
Guests age 2 and above must wear a face covering even if they have received a COVID-19 vaccine.
In all cases when removing a face covering, you must be stationary.
You may remove your face covering while eating and/or drinking.
You may remove your mask while taking an outdoor photo. You cannot remove your mask inside or during a ride photo, and you must remain stationary while taking the picture. You are allowed to remove the face covering while taking the picture yourself or when using a PhotoPass photographer so long as you maintain social distancing.
Face coverings must fully cover the nose and mouth while fitting snugly against the side of the face and under the chin.
Face masks must be held in place with ear loops and made of at least two layers of breathable material, which still rules out neck gaiters.
Face masks cannot have valves or holes of any kind.
There is no current designation as to when the face covering requirements will be removed for Walt Disney World Resort, so if you have a vacation book or are planning to book one, be sure to pack your masks. You can buy additional, Disney-themed face coverings in gift shops across Walt Disney World Resort property.
