Disney slashes prices of face masks at shopDisney as Disney World's mask requirements near an end

As Disney's theme parks say goodbye to face coverings, the company is moving to offload its stock of masks featuring its character designs.


A four-pack of masks featuring Mickey Mouse that previously sold at $19.99 is now just $6.

Two packs of masks that shopDisney previously sold for $11.99 are now just $3.

Disney began selling face masks in April 2020 as the COVID-19 pandemic took hold, and it became clear that Walt Disney World would be reopening with a requirement for guests to wear masks. Initial pre-orders quickly sold out, and delivery times slipped to a couple of months.

As part of the product launch in 2020, Disney donated one million cloth face masks for children and families in underserved and vulnerable communities across the U.S. The company also donated $1million in profits from the sales in the U.S. of Disney's cloth face masks to Medshare.

As of June 15 2021, Disney no longer requires masks to be worn at the Walt Disney World Resort hotels and theme parks for guests who are fully vaccinated. Face coverings are still be required for all Guests on Disney transportation, including Disney buses, monorails and Disney Skyliner.

Enjoy the moment. This may be the first time in recorded Disney history where they’ve lowered the price.

You joke, but last September I saw a person in epcot stop mid-walkway, pull the mask down and vomit EVERYWHERE, then forcibly blow the vomit out of their nose, and then pull the mask up and continue on like nothing happened... Someone was definitely a pro drunkcot warrior.

Was in one of the Disney Store/Outlets and they had some for a buck I think, and they also had a sign that was B1G2 free. Most places are trying to clear them out.

Masks on the Disney UK store have been discounted since at least February, a pack of four was originally £20 and have been £3 now for a while. I guess they really over estimated the demand since they are all still available. https://www.shopdisney.co.uk/search?q=face+covering

A thrifty entrepreneur could buy these with the intent to make unofficial mouse ears and sell'm on Etsy.

Just got back from a trip that included a day at Busch Gardens Williamsburg. One of the gift shops dropped a handful of sealed BG logo masks in our bag for FREE. They obviously have tons of these things in storage that they want gone. I prompltly threw them away when we returned home. We maybe saw 15 people in the entire park (and it was sold out) wearing any type of mask.

The mask will catch most of the vomit before it hits the pavement for the CM to clean up.
