Deanna Allbritten from WDTV advises that face masks are non-negotiable at Disney Springs and that in the future there may be certain areas of Disney Springs where guests can remove the masks to take a break. Check it out:
They say they're looking at "mask off" zones at Disney Springs to potentially give people a break from wearing them, but that's not set yet. They've made it plenty clear that mask-wearing by guests continues to be a non-negotiable for reopening.
