    Hi, for park re opening it’s is mandatory to wear masks. But my question is for the young kids of 2 or 3 what if they kid has trouble keeping the mask on? Will it be fully enforced for young toddlers?

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Isabella! I'm so glad to be able to answer this question for you about your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World Resort. Masks and face coverings are going to be a part of our world for at least a little while and it's really important to make sure that you know exactly what to do when you arrive so that everyone in your party stays safe!

    Isabella, as part of the phased reopening process of the Theme Parks and Resort Hotels, Disney has taken guidance from health authorities like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and will be requiring face coverings for all guests ages two and up. Since this is a health measure implemented for the safety of you, your family, and other guests around you, the rule will be enforced for everyone including young children. The Know Before You Go page has all the information you need to know about what kinds of masks are acceptable, so be sure to check it out before you pack for your trip!

    I definitely understand that little Mouseketeers don't always want to do exactly what we want them to, so I have a few tips that might help the little ones in your life get more comfortable with masks and face coverings. Practicing at home is my number one tip for success, and getting a selection of fun masks is a great way to start! I've tried all kinds of different styles and cuts over the last few months and the masks available from ShopDisney.com have been the most comfortable I've tried yet. They're made from a breathable material and come in multiple sizes and a whole bunch of fun designs! Kids love making choices for themselves, so try giving your children the option of a few masks to choose from when it's time to put one on. It's also a good idea to keep a few back-ups in your bag in case the ones you're wearing get wet or you need to change them for any reason. Remember that masks do not need to be worn when eating, drinking, or swimming so you definitely will have the opportunity to have a few breaks throughout the day.

    I hope this answers your question, Isabella, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation!
