The face mask policy at the Walt Disney World Resort has been updated again, further clarifying when visitors can remove face masks at dining locations.
“Face coverings for each Guest age 2 and up, which must be worn in all public areas and can only be removed while actively eating or drinking,” reads the policy on the Disney World website. “Face coverings must be worn while standing, waiting or sitting in dining locations.”
Previously, the mask policy for dining locations was not as specific.
“Face coverings for each Guest age 2 and up, which must be worn in all public areas—including while entering and exiting dining locations—and can be removed while eating or drinking,” read the previous policy.
The Walt Disney World Resort has updated its mask policy several times since it reopened from its pandemic-related shutdown last summer. A notable change was when Disney specified that visitors to keep their face masks up unless “actively eating while stationary” at the parks and Disney Springs.
The face mask policy was also updated just last monthto say that even visitors who have received the COVID-19 vaccine would still be required to wear face masks.
