Disney has updated its website to note that guests must wear their face coverings while “standing, waiting or sitting in dining locations.”
Walt Disney World Resort officials have continually updated their face mask policy throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. The most recent change involves an online update to the information about dining and face masks. Now, it states Guests must wear their face coverings while “standing, waiting or sitting in dining locations.”
Before you dine at Walt Disney World Resort, please be aware that you’ll need:
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. Face coverings must be worn while standing, waiting or sitting in dining locations.
It is worth noting that this policy has been in place at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California. Although Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park remain officially closed, both Downtown Disney and DCA’s Buena Vista Street are open for outdoor dining.
According to the blog Inside The Magic, many Walt Disney World Resort guests reported that they were previously allowed to remove their masks as soon as they were seated at their dining tables and were allowed to leave their face coverings off for the duration of the dining experience.
Disney Resort officials have not yet announced if updates to the Disney Park face mask policy will be made prior to Disney World‘s 50th-anniversary celebration, which is set to begin on October 1, 2021, and extend for 18 months.
Face coverings are for each guest ages two and up.
