Okay, perhaps this question is somewhat misleading? As we all know, mandatory mask wearing at Walt Disney World is expected to be in place through the end of 2021. You either surrender to it and wear one or you don’t and stay at home. But this debate aims to understand whether from when this measure was first introduced, you have changed your opinion, whether because of advice or personal experience or simply through your sheer desire to get a glimpse of some much needed Disney magic you have accepted the mask rule and have chosen to surrender to it to visit ‘the happiest place on earth’?
Not only do we know that mandatory mask wearing is expected to continue until the end of 2021, we have heard the news this week that Disney Quietly Tightens Mask Rules Again at Walt Disney World in preparation for expected increased capacity caps and higher crowds during Spring break.
It is important to point out that the change in ruling comes when guests are dining and now requires masks to be worn while guests are sitting, ordering, and waiting for food and masks can only be removed when actively eating or drinking. This replaces the previous rule where masks could be removed as soon as guests had been seated at their own table and could continue throughout the duration of their dining experience.
