    Are masks required?

    Hi there, Steven! Welcome to planDisney, and thank you for bringing us your question. I see you’ll soon be paying a visit to Walt Disney World. How very exciting! As I’m sure you know already, there are some differences in what you will see and experience there compared to times before. These differences revolve around the measures in place to safeguard Guests' and Cast Members' health and well-being during these unprecedented times. The measures are outlined on the Experience Updates pages for everyone to review. One of these policies is the requirement for all visitors to any Disney property to have appropriate face coverings. This applies to Guests ages 2 and up, and no exceptions can be made to the policy. The face coverings must meet certain criteria outlined on the Walt Disney World website, including that they fully cover the nose and secure under the chin plus fit snugly against the side of the face, plus be secured with ties or hair loops while allowing the Guest to remain hands-free. 

    Steven, I hope that this information helps you make the best vacation decision for yourself and anyone else traveling with you. As someone who has recently had to cancel a family trip due to a relative who cannot tolerate mask-wearing, I understand that this may not be welcome news. However, we hope that this will not be permanent, though it is part of the changes that have made it possible for many to return to the magic! Walt Disney World understands that not everyone may be ready to do so on the same timeline, and therefore has implemented lenient cancellation and modification policies in place for anyone who needs to make changes to their plans! 

    Please know that we are here for you during any step of the planning process and happy to provide any updates or information as it becomes available to us.

    Happy planning!
