Walt Disney World Will Allow Maskless Outdoor Photos Starting On April 8

0

A new update on the Walt Disney World website is showing that Disney will be allowing guests to take photos without masks starting on April 8th.

Under their guidelines they have added the following:

Face Coverings

Face coverings are required for all Guests (ages 2 and up) and Cast Members, including those who have received a COVID-19 vaccine. Please bring your own face coverings and wear them at all times, except when dining or swimming. You may temporarily remove your face covering while actively eating, drinking or taking an outdoor photo*, but you must be stationary and maintain appropriate physical distancing during this time. (*Beginning April 8)

Now you can remove your mask when eating, drinking or taking an outdoor photo as long as you stay stationary and physically distanced.

The removal of masks for outdoor photos has been an ongoing debate since the parks reopened. Mask removal was allowed when stationary, but only for eating and drinking. This has led to people calling out other people when removing masks for photos, including celebrities.

It seems like Disney will be relaxing this mandate somewhat.

Of course this could change at any time.
