Universal and Disney have opened their gates to welcome guests near and far, as long as everyone wears a mask.

A lot of people have been trying to sneak their way around without wearing a mask, but now the theme parks have caught on and trying to put a stop to it.

Before the change, with the previous policy at Disney World you could technically eat and drink while walking around, and if you constantly snacking, you could technically not wear a mask all day. Now, they say you can still remove your face covering if eating or drinking but you must be standing or sitting while still social distancing.

Universal Orlando was facing the same problem and this was their response:

“Guests must wear face coverings at all times, unless they are actively eating or drinking, and they must also be socially distanced from other travel parties while consuming their food or beverage.”

That clears that up, but it doesn’t stop there.

The following are not permitted at Universal Orlando:

  • Face coverings with exhalation valves
  • Face coverings that are not secured with ear loops or secured around your head
  • Face coverings that include mesh material or holes of any kind
  • Costume masks or veils, per our costume guidelines

The following are not permitted at Disney World:

  • Neck gaiters
  • Open-chin triangle bandanas

I guess you have to be specific when dealing with so many people. I find it hard to breath outside with the mask on because of the heat and humidity, but that just means it’s not the right time for me to go right now. I’ve had friends who have gone, they don’t mind the masks and feel safe with the low crowd levels. They said they got to ride the Hulk coaster 5 times in one day! Sounds like fun!
