Disney World adjusts mask policy for dining locations


If you’re heading to the most magical place on earth, you may want to reread its face mask policy.

Disney World has officially modified its face mask policy, reports Deadline.

Visitors who arrive at Walt Disney World’s dining locations must wear their face masks while “standing, waiting or sitting.” Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the theme park has changed its rules several times.

Before the modifications, visitors had to keep their face mask up unless “actively eating while stationary” at the parks and Disney Springs.

“Face coverings for each Guest age 2 and up, which must be worn in all public areas and can only be removed while actively eating or drinking,” read the policy on the Disney World website.

“Face coverings must be worn while standing, waiting, or sitting in dining locations.”

If you have received your COVID-19 vaccine, you will still need to wear your face mask.

As for the world combatting the global outbreak, Disney World has been making changes.

In November, Walt Disney World announced its plan to bring back the Park Hopper pass in 2021, with a few restrictions.

Guests can now purchase a ticket or annual pass with Park Hopper benefits and visit more than one park per day. The pass allows access to iconic parks like Disney World’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, Magic Kingdom Park, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and EPCOT.

Guests must make a reservation before visiting any of the parks. Park Hopper will start at 2 P.M. and end at the park’s scheduled closing time.

The park is continuing to enforce safety measures. Visitors are required to wear masks, and social distancing guidelines have been posted throughout the park.
