WDW Policy Update: Guests Eating or Drinking Should be Stationary to Remove Masks

The Walt Disney World website has been updated regarding the wearing of face coverings while eating or drinking.

The information, added to the “Face Coverings” portion of the section entitled “Top Things You Should Know,” now states that guests may remove their face coverings while they are eating or drinking, but guests should be stationary and socially distanced in order to do so.

The policy regarding the usage of neck gaiters and triangle-shaped bandana facial coverings is also found in this section of the Walt Disney World site. Both gaiters and “open-chin bandanas” are not approved face coverings at WDW at this time.

The details also state that face coverings are not a replacement for remaining socially distanced from others.
