What’s Happening:

  • Ahead of the reopening of Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom, Walt Disney World is detailing the requirements for face coverings for guests and Cast Members.
    • All face coverings (whether disposable or reusable) must:
    • Be made with at least two layers of breathable material
    • Fully cover the nose and mouth and secure under the chin
    • Fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face
    • Be secured with ties or ear loops and allow the guest to remain hands-free
  • Unacceptable styles:
    • At this time, based on guidance from health authorities, neck gaiters and open-chin triangle bandanas are not acceptable face coverings.
    • Costume masks are also not considered appropriate and are prohibited from being worn, in alignment with Disney’s existing rules.
  • Disney is also reminding guests that face coverings are not a substitute for physical distancing.
  • For more information on the new policies and safety guidelines at the resort, please visit our Walt Disney World Reopening Guide.

Good to Know:

  • All guests (ages 2 and older) and Cast Members older must wear a face covering at all times, except when dining or swimming.
  • Guests will need to bring their own face coverings with them. Additional face masks are available for purchase at Marketplace Co-Op at Disney Springs.
  • Disney has had a face covering policy in place since phased reopening of Disney Springs began back in May.
