    Hello, I’m planning on bringing my daughter for a trip. I’m fully aware of the mask requirements and will definitely make sure my daughter keeps hers on as best as possible, but what happens if she takes it off in the parks, because she’s four?

    Hi Josh!

    Welcome to planDisney! Thank you for dropping by with such a great question.

    I am so glad to hear that you are aware of the health and safety requirements which include face coverings for all guests ages 2 and up! As always, Disney reserves the right to deny entry and/or remove any guest who does not comply with property rules and procedures. Having said that, your daughter is 4-years old. Cast members are lovely with helping princesses and princes, Jedi-in-Training, would be sorcerers, and Wilderness Explorers adapt to all royal, galactic, and planetary expectations.

    Should you find that your little one needs an extended break, try stopping by one of the relaxation stations. Located in all four theme parks, you can take a break in these areas and remove your masks. I would suggest planning for some down time in one of these areas so that your daughter knows a break is on the schedule. Check the park guide maps for each theme park to see the location of relaxation stations - Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney's Animal Kingdom, and Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    Also remember to take advantage of advanced dining reservations. Air-conditioned breaks are nice and will give your daughter a chance to recharge. Remember to review the dining updates as available locations may change. Finally, if you have not done so already, I suggest that you practice with the mask wearing prior to going to the parks. If she can wear one for several hours at a time under normal conditions, that may help with her tolerating one in the parks. The teacher in me believes in the power of practice!

    Josh, sending a little extra pixie dust your way as you prepare your daughter for a magical visit!

    Magic and memories,
