    When will you no longer require visitors to wear masks?

    Hey there, Patti. I'm so glad you've stopped by planDisney with your question. 

    Returning to a world of magic was such a joyous occasion but did come with some new rules and regulations. One of these new requirements was that Guests ages 2 and older wear a face covering at all times when not actively eating or drinking. This requirement is still in place, however, there has recently been another change. Now, Guests must still wear a face covering at all times, however, are now allowed to remove them when stationary and outside for a quick picture. This is so exciting and welcomed. It feels like we are slowly but surely getting back to normal and now you will be able to see your smiling face in front of Cinderella Castle for years to come if you are visiting in the near future. At this time, there has been no news on when we won't have to wear face coverings at all. When this information is released, we will be able to find all of the information regarding the policy change over on the Disney Parks Blog. 

    Until then, don't forget that you can also take your mask off in one of the many relaxation stations set up throughout the Walt Disney World Theme Parks. These areas provide a safe and physically distanced area for you to sit down and relax. You can eat and drink in these designated areas but you are not required to. If you grab a snack while walking around, you can also pull over to the side and remove your face covering to enjoy. Just be sure to be physically distanced from other folks and remain stationary. 

    Patti, I hope this helps with your question. If you have any others regarding theme park policy or anything else, please feel free to stop back by and ask me

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
