Forget the neck gaiters and bandanas. Disney is placing pretty strict requirements on what is considered a face mask, and they will be enforcing it. Plus, what happens if you leave a mask behind? I’ve got the answer below.
If there’s one item that sums up 2020 (besides toilet paper), it’s face masks. They are are a necessity for touring Disney World parks and grabbing groceries.
We have known for quite some time that face masks would be a requirement for visiting Disney World.
Universal Studios has asked Guests to adhere to the same requirement as well.
However, what passes for a face mask? Are there certain requirements that a facial covering must have to be considered a proper face mask?
Disney is going to be pretty strict on the use of face masks on their property. With the rise of positive COVID-19 cases hitting 9,000 in Florida late last week, they are a necessity in the fight against coronavirus.
PLEASE FOLLOW THE REQUIREMENTS AND WEAR YOUR MASK!
What type of face mask is required?
Face masks worn on Disney property must be secured with ties or ear loops. We suggest not purchasing the shopDisney ones because they do not fit well at all. Check out our review HERE.
That means no bandanas, neck gaiters, or cut up undergarments that you fashioned together in your hotel room because you left yours at home.
They must have a tie or ear loop! If you don’t have a proper mask, Cast Members will ask you to purchase one.
You can read the newly updated information regarding face masks from Disney HERE.
What if you leave your face mask behind on a ride or restaurant?
So you’ve bought the face masks (preferably ones that match all your cute Disney outfits!), but you left it behind on Splash Mountain or in the gift shop. Now what?
Cast Members will throw them away. They are not considered a lost and found item, and they will be thrown into the trash.
We suggest stocking up on some disposable masks or just be very careful to keep your mask on as much as possible.
What do you think of these mask requirements? Are you more or less likely to go to Disney World knowing this information? We would love to hear your thoughts on our Facebook page.
