Mandatory Masks are NOT Returning to Walt Disney World
Disney internet has been abuzz this morning after posts circulated indicating that mandatory masks and face coverings would be returning to Walt Disney World.
We saw the following post in the popular Annual Passholders – Walt Disney World Resort Facebook group. The post indicated that Managers at Walt Disney World received the following guidance indicating that masks would be mandatory once again beginning August 1, 2022:
After a little research, it appears the original poster did a simple search on Google to get the graphic they used in the above post and then added the part about it being sent out to managers.
As a Travel Agent, I have already been fielding calls, texts, and emails from my clients to see if this rumor is true. I am happy to confirm that this is just a rumor and mandatory masks are NOT returning to Walt Disney World.
PRO TIP: This is another reason it is great to use a Travel Agent when booking your vacation: Know the facts from the rumors!
This is also a good time to remember just because you read something on Facebook, or the internet for that matter, does not mean it’s true! It actually looks like the original poster in the Annual Passholders – Walt Disney World Resort Facebook group went back in to their post to change the image of the mask requirements to the image of a troll indicating that he was indeed just joking:
While the original poster did own up to his joke, the problem is that several people of this particular Facebook group saw this original post indicating that mandatory masks were returning to Walt Disney World and not the updated post where he confirmed he was just joking.
To reiterate, mandatory masks are NOT returning to Walt Disney World at this time!
