Disney updates mask policy to exclude neck gaiters and open-chin triangle bandanas

Jul 10, 2020 in "The Walt Disney Company"

Disney has updated its mask rules to be more specific on the type of mask that is acceptable.

Specifically, neck gaiters and open-chin triangle bandanas are not acceptable, and masks must have at least two layers or material.

Face coverings are required for all Guests (ages 2 and up) and Cast Members. Please bring your own face coverings and wear them at all times, except when dining or swimming.

  • All face coverings (whether disposable or reusable) must:
  • Be made with at least two layers of breathable material
  • Fully cover the nose and mouth and secure under the chin
  • Fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face
  • Be secured with ties or ear loops and allow the Guest to remain hands-free

At this time, based on guidance from health authorities, neck gaiters and open-chin triangle bandanas are not acceptable face coverings.

Costume masks are also not considered appropriate and are prohibited from being worn, in alignment with our existing rules.

That happens a lot even just with regular products that are able to be purchased cheaply....household goods, etc.

That's true also. Some savvy Brazil travelers even go to the Orlando outlets and buy in bulk then ship the products to Brazil for resale.

So is there a composite of average wait times across the days of the week? Seems like Saturdays/Sundays are by far the busiest but wanted to see which weekdays are usually the best to visit on

EPCOT After 2 Pass?

What's going on October 9-16 that DHS is blocked out to resort guests and ticket holders? But AP holders have availability at all parks October 13-15? I've never seen that before.

The people from the UK were well represented at the outlets as well. Talked to a couple that did the math to find the prices were a bargain for them even with the cost of getting it back.

Without the South American tourists ( i e. Brazil ) the Orlando outlet malls are not even worth operating. Most of their business is from them.

The Vineland outlet opened today.

Mrs. rowrbazzle took our daughter a couple years ago. She was just shy of her 3rd birthday so she was free. That seemed like a decent deal. Of course, our little girl was more interested in eating and coloring than taking pictures with the princesses (she feigned a swing at Aurora with her wand) so it wasn't quite the magical breakfast we envisioned. πŸ˜„ Maybe the two of them would go again sometime. Maybe. I don't see us ever forking over money for the whole family, though. I just can't stomach spending that much on a meal at Disney.

I agree. I know, I know.. it’s the experience. Family of 4 being over 300 dollars? I guess some think it’s worth it but boy can I find so many things to do with that money. To each his own I guess. edit: A little under 300, kids are a little less.

Breakfast is cheaper. Or at least it was. And the price does include tax and tip, if I remember correctly. Once you factor that in it's not much more than Akershus at Epcot. Still crazy, though.
