BIG NEWS! While all of our recent Walt Disney World photos include our masks, Disney has just updated their policy to allow guests to remove their face coverings while social distanced for photos taken outside beginning this Thursday, April 8. Check out the details below.

As shared on the Walt Disney World website: “Face coverings are required for all Guests (ages 2 and up) and Cast Members, including those who have received a COVID-19 vaccine. Please bring your own face coverings and wear them at all times, except when dining or swimming. You may temporarily remove your face covering while actively eating, drinking or taking an outdoor photo*, but you must be stationary and maintain appropriate physical distancing during this time. (*Beginning April 8)”


So here we go Disney fans! We’ll once again get to say cheese and actually show our smiles in photos while outside! What are your thoughts? Are you happy with the change or prefer for all to keep their masks on during photos? We’ll keep you posted as Disney continues to review guidelines during this phased reopening.
