A new update has appeared on Walt Disney World nomenclature that states that as of April 8th guests may remove their masks when taking a socially distanced, outdoor photo.

The Updated Policy

If you’ve been following along in the everchanging Walt Disney World mask policy, you know that this is an “easing” of the former policy. Since the parks reopened, removing a mask while taking a photo was prohibited.

“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.”

Disney PhotoPass

According to reputable sources, Disney PhotoPass photographers will begin taking photos of maskless guests as soon as April 8th. As with the updated policy, this only applies to outdoor, physically distanced PhotoPass locations.

If you plan to head to the parks, remember that currently, PhotoPass photographers are still unable to use your phone to take a photo.
