    Hello, just wondering if the masks being sold at WDW are paper/disposable or are they washable? Also will there be shows at HS, Beauty and the Beast is a favorite! Thank you!

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, JoAnne! I'm so excited that you have a trip coming up to Walt Disney World Resort in a few weeks. The phased re-opening process is well underway and that includes some changes to the entertainment on offer as well as requirements for face masks for all guests age two and over, so I'm more than happy to answer your questions about both of those important topics!

    At the moment, there are two different kinds of masks being sold at Walt Disney World Resort. At most merchandise locations, you'll be able to find reusable cloth masks that you can wash and wear again as many times as you want. These are the same breathable fabric masks that you're able to buy in several different sizes and styles right now on! Inside the Theme Parks and at Disney Springs, these masks are sold individually as well as in packs of four and they're the most comfortable reusable masks I've had the chance to try yet. There are also vending machines at the temperature check areas that sell disposable single-use masks, but be sure to pack some masks with you before you leave your Resort Hotel in case these machines aren't available for any reason, as you'll need an appropriate face covering to proceed through the temperature check. 

    To answer your second question, Beauty and the Beast - Live On Stage at Disney's Hollywood Studios is temporarily unavailable during this stage of the phased re-opening process. You'll still be able to enjoy some of your classic favorite attractions like The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror and Star Tours - The Adventure Continues as well as new favorites like Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway and Slinky Dog Dash, but live stage shows are not being offered at the moment. You will still have opportunities to see your favorite Disney Characters out and about when you're at the Theme Parks, so keep your eyes open and listen for special music and announcements that will let you know when something magical is about to happen!

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