    Hello! This is in regards to your covid mask policy. I read that face coverings need to have ear loops or ties. What if the neck gaiter has ear loops to hold them in place and fully covers down the neck. Are they still unacceptable?

    Hi 'Alohi! Welcome to planDisney!

    Your trip to the Walt Disney World Resort is SO close! You will be traveling a long way to get there, but it will be SO worth it. What a fun vacation you are about to experience!

    As I was looking over the rules for face coverings, there are a few things I wanted to point out. As you said, they must "be secured with ties or ear loops and allow the Guest to remain hands-free," they also must "fully cover the nose and mouth and secure under the chin." Even though the option you are considering has ear loops, it does not secure under the chin since it continues down the neck. I highly recommend you bring other masks with you to make sure you aren't turned away!

    Here are the two other details that Disney outlines regarding face coverings: They must "fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face" and "be made with at least 2 layers of breathable material." Bring your masks that fit all of the above guidelines and you will be all set! You can read all of the re-opening guidelines at the link I am including here and find out everything you need to know before you go!

    I hope you have the BEST vacation, 'Alohi! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
