    Hello, I recently read some of the guidelines the park will have when it reopens in July. How are kids supposed to keep face masks on all day when I can barely get the to kept them on when I grocery shop? Is there an age limit to the required face mask?

    Hi there, Pedro, and thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I always enjoy helping my fellow Californians with their questions about the Happiest Place on Earth, so let’s get started!

    I’m glad you’re keeping up-to-date on the most recent updates at the Disneyland Resort. You’re correct that the information on Disneyland.com was recently updated to state that face coverings will be mandatory for Guests and Cast Members upon the Resort’s planned reopening in July. So far, the Disneyland Resort hasn’t specified an age limit. Walt Disney World Resort, on the other hand, states that face coverings are required for all Guests ages 2 and up. Walt Disney World Resort also includes specific requirements for the types of face coverings allowed into the parks, and for when they must be worn (all the time, except for when Guests are dining or swimming). So far, Disneyland Resort hasn’t included this information on Disneyland.com, but the information continues being updated, so I wouldn’t be surprised if we see more changes leading up to the planned reopening. There’s a helpful section detailing what Guests can expect during their next visit, and I recommend continuing to check it as new information evolves.

    As the mom of three Mouseketeers ages 8 and under, I understand how daunting this all seems. My children also complain every time they have to wear their masks inside a store, so I know exactly what you’re talking about! My best piece of advice is to do what’s best for you and your family. If keeping a mask on for an entire day may be too much for your children right now, perhaps you could compromise with a visit to Downtown Disney District for a few hours. You could consider that a good “test run” to see how your children do. Perhaps the excitement of the parks would be enough to encourage them to keep their masks on a bit longer. I’ve had this discussion with my children, and they all agreed that a day in the parks would be worth keeping their masks on! I also recommend scheduling dining breaks so your children can take off their masks and enjoy a tasty treat, be it a delicious Disney Parks Churro or scrumptious Mickey Mouse-shaped Beignet!

    Last but not least, I also ordered my children Disney Cloth Face Masks from shopDisney.com. I’m hoping these adorable masks will help motivate them to keep their masks on inside the Resort. From Star Wars to Mickey Mouse, there’s a design for every Disney fan in your family! Just be sure to check the helpful sizing guide on the website before placing your order, to ensure a good fit.

    I hope this information helps, Pedro. Just remember, we’re all in this together!
