Walt Disney World has been one of the most strict businesses when it comes to masks and distancing, but a new change in policy starting Thursday will allow guests to temporarily remove face masks for outdoor photos.
When Disney World reopened last July, it soon after amended its face mask policy to ban neck gaiters, open-chin triangle bandanas and face coverings with valves. Soon after that, it also made clear that face masks can only be removed when actively eating and drinking. Visitors who are 2 years old and up — including those who have received a COVID-19 vaccine — must wear face coverings at all times.
The change Thursday will be the first real relaxation of pandemic rules.
