Due to a surge in local COVID-19 cases, overwhelmed area hospitals, and new recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Disney World has once again tightened rules as it relates to face masks at its theme parks and resorts.
Starting today, guests and Cast Members are required to wear face coverings while indoors. New signage was installed overnight at the theme parks and resorts to remind guests of the new policy and we made it out to Disney’s Animal Kingdom this morning to take a look around!
Guests are reminded of the policy via signage and Cast Member instructions at the entrance to the park.
Once inside the park, signage reminding guests of the policy is at the entrance to all attractions, shops, and even still-shuttered theaters.
A park-wide audio message reminds guests of the new policy.
Cast Members are reminding guests of the new policy at attraction entrances and the vast majority of guests are complying without talking back.
There are no rules with regards to physical distancing and there appears to be no immediate impact on crowds or demand. Flight of Passage opened to a massive morning rush, as has been the case for months.
