Walt Disney World Resort Clarifies Face Mask Policy; Prohibits masks with valves or holes


Since the opening of the theme parks at the Walt Disney World Resort, many guests have been confused about the official face coverage policy. A lot of things have been asked like “can I wear a gaiter mask in a theme park?”It appears the policy has been officially clarified, and Disney is now banning masks with valves or holes.

As noted on the Know Before You Go webpage, all masks should:

  • Be made with at least two layers of breathable material
  • Cover the nose and mouth completely and secure under the chin
  • Fits snugly but comfortably against the side of the face
  • Be secure with zip ties or earrings and allow the guest to keep their hands free

At this time, based on advice from health authorities, neck warmers and open chin triangular bandanas are not acceptable face covers.
