According to the policy change, guests WILL BE REQUIRED to keep masks on during dining experiences while you are waiting for food or not eating. This change specifically highlights that masks MUST BE worn while standing, waiting or sitting at dining locations.
Here at MickeyBlog we took to disneyworld.com and can confirm that the update has been made and currently appears on the site.
You’ll find the policy here.
For those unfamiliar, the original dining policy stated that guests could remove masks once seated at your table. Now it has been tightened up to specify that masks can be removed ONLY when eating or drinking. As of going to print, Disney has not given a reason for the change. We would suspect it has something to do with the length of time guests are spending at tables or perhaps and upcoming move to increase the occupancy at restaurants. But at the moment that is just speculation.
This is a story that we’ll continue to follow closely here at MickeyBlog. Readers are encouraged to keep following along with us for further news and updates.
