Disney Allows Guests to Take Masks Off for Outdoor Photos Beginning April 8

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.

About Mike/ Jamie

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
