Disney World Bans Walking And Eating To Force People To Wear Face Masks

Posted: Jul 21, 2020

If you thought Disneyland’s ban of screaming while sitting on a ride was crazy enough, another theme park has a rule that will also be tough to follow.

If you thought Disneyland’s ban of screaming while sitting on a ride was crazy, another theme park has also rolled in a new set of pandemic-era rules for patrons.

According to the New York Post, Disney World has banned guests from eating and drinking while walking around the park after people were using the loophole to avoid wearing face masks.

Less than 10 days after reopening, the theme park has updated its face mask policy which now explicitly warns people to stay in place and away from others if they remove their mask to eat.

The policy explains: “Please bring your own face coverings and wear them at all times, except when dining or swimming.”

It has since been updated to warn: “You may remove your face covering while actively eating or drinking, but you should be stationary and maintain appropriate physical distancing.”

Disney Parks blog Walt Disney World News Today asked a Disney cast member at the Epcot park about the new rule this weekend and was told: “Guests are now being asked to find a safe spot six feet from other guests before removing their masks to eat and drink.”

If visitors to the theme park do not wear a face mask, the blog reported, they will be asked to put one on or leave.

Disney has strict definitions for what constitutes a face mask, which excludes “open-chin triangle bandannas,” as well as costume masks and “neck gaiters”.

Guests who want to remove their mask and are not safely eating or swimming can seek out a “Relaxation Station,” where they can have a socially distanced, mask-free rest.

Face masks have been enforced since the park reopened on July 11, with all guests over the age of two having to wear them.

An increased number of handwashing and hand sanitizing stations, as well as first aid sites, have also been created throughout the parks and resorts.

The theme parks will also operate at reduced capacity, while adjustments have been made throughout to promote physical distancing.
