    My 2 year old struggles to wear a mask. We do our best, but will we be kicked out if she's rips it off inside?

    Hi Amy!

    Welcome to planDisney! How exciting that you’ll be visiting with your little one this winter! We live in the midwest and there is nothing better for getting through the long cold winters than looking forward to a few days of magic at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Amy, currently, all Guests ages 2 and over are required to wear masks at all indoor locations. I think if we’ve learned anything over the past year and a half, we’ve learned that life is unpredictable. Please keep in mind that between now and January the mask policy could change again. Masks may be required in more locations or less.

    The mask policy is taken seriously at Walt Disney World, and Cast Members will politely but firmly remind Guests, including little ones, to put on, or pull up their masks appropriately. You should be prepared for Cast Members to enforce the policy, even with a 2-year-old. Of course, kids will be kids and it is understood that when you may be looking the other way, a little one may pull the mask down. You will not be kicked out, just simply reminded to fix the mask. But if a child is unable or unwilling to put the mask back on, you should be prepared that you may be asked to leave the building or attraction until a time when the child can wear the mask.

    The good news is that you do have some time before your visit. I would practice mask-wearing with your little one, and perhaps even talk up the trip. “We need to wear our mask so we can go visit Mickey!” Let your child pick out their own mask, or try different types such as paper or cloth to see if they are more comfortable in a particular style.

    I would also prepare a game plan for your visit. There are quite a few attractions especially at Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park that are completely outdoors. And experiences such as outdoor shows, cavalcades, and nighttime spectaculars are both fun for the little one and outside where masks are not required. If your little one can wear their mask for short times, try to alternate an outdoor attraction with an indoor option so they can have a break.

    I hope this helps with your planning, Amy. And feel free to send more questions before your visit, we are here to help!
