Disney Continues to Make Changes to Health and Safety Policies Following Reopening of Florida Theme Parks
Walt Disney World has been open for over a week now. With the reopening of all four theme parks, Disney has made some changes to their safety policies and health procedures to ensure guest and castmember safety.
Disney requires all guests over the age of two to wear an appropriate face covering that covers the mouth and nose. In addition, guests must pass through a temperature screening prior to entering the parks. Social Distancing is also encouraged and enforced throughout all aspects of the parks.

Disney continues to make changes to their policies as time goes on. One such change is to the mask requirements. Disney has now banned all face masks with valves.
There are several types of face covering that are not allowed on Walt Disney property. At this time, neck gaiters, open-chin triangle bandanas, and face coverings containing valves, mesh material or holes of any kind are not allowed.
Why are these now banned?
The purpose of the face covering is to protect people from you and what you exhale into the air around you. A mask with a valve may protect you from some pathogens in the air and from those around you breathing on you. But, it doesn’t do anything to protect the people around you from your own breath.
