How To Wear a Face Mask at Walt Disney World
Geoffrey’s colorful post is both eye-catching and helpful. He has created a themed aesthetic to make his mask tips attractive and easy to pay attention to. The seven-frame static feed post shares a title page, 5 how to wear a mask (the right way) at a theme park, and a closing bonus tip.
Come on everybody get your MASKS on! ➡️ SWIPE for 5 tips on wearing a mask at Disney World plus 6 #disneystyle looks with masks!
As the parks continue cast member and passholder previews and prepare for their public opening, remember: we are still in a pandemic and COVID-19 is real. Wearing a mask is about protecting other people, not yourself. We all need to wear one to have a safe and fun time. And while these tips are specific to Disney, they also generally apply to other theme parks and every day life! All of the shops I’m wearing in these six looks are tagged in the photos too so be sure to check them out!

1. Make Sure You Have The Right Mask
Check your fit before you leave home. Is it comfortable? Does your face mask have holes or is it appropriate cloth fabric? Double-check everything before you’re left disappointed at the Theme Park touchpoints!
2. Limit How Much You Remove Your Face Mask
If you can help it, limit how much you touch the outside of the mask, and how often you remove it. This will help with possible contamination and keep everyone as safe as possible. Remove the mask only in approved mask-free relaxation areas, or at eateries when your food arrives.
3. Bring a Spare Mask
One of Geoffrey’s tips, to bring an extra face mask with you, is tops in the Florida heat. Sweat and moisture combined with cloth face masks means that you will want a second face covering for each member of your party. If you find that you’ve left your spare at home, Parks like Magic Kingdom have face masks for sale in many locations.
4. Don’t Post Mask-less Photos Online
When we see mask-free photos online, most everyone feels uncomfortable and without extreme context, the photo poses questions and frustration. Save your mask-free photos for your personal friends or family and refrain from posting them online. Set the best example possible for other Disney Park visitors!
5. Follow Theme Park Protocol
Getting directions or requests from a Cast Member? Please follow them. Standards have been set for safety (the first Disney Key) and health. Much thought has been put into them. Be kind to fellow visitors and Disney employees. Have fun!
More Disney World Mask Tips
Remember that Neck Gaiters, or buffs, were recently listed as unacceptable on the Disney World website. You’ll want a face covering with ear loops (feel free to wear a Mickey ear saver) to fit the Disney Park mask requirement. Of course, costume masks cannot apply to the face mask rules, but feel free to choose a Disney face mask with plenty of character!
Many Disney fans develop themed outfits for each day of their visit. Whether it’s Dapper Day or Disneybounding, you can match your mask to your outfit (just like Geoffrey does here in the photo) to make more fun out of it. You don’t have to wear a plain mask if it makes your day more enjoyable! Find sellers on Etsy with customizable options, make your own mask, or shop the Disney options online.
Combine wearing a face mask at Walt Disney World with social distancing, handwashing, and other health measures. Disney Springs is also a mandated face coverings area with temperature screening, as will Disney’s Hollywood Studios and EPCOT be when they reopen. Be safe on your Disney vacation, and remember we’ll see ya’ real soon!
