An update today in Disney’s employee mask protocols now allows certain Cast Members in outdoor roles at Walt Disney World to work without masks. This new policy pertains to those whose jobs enable them to function in their capacity at Walt Disney World while still maintaining six feet of social distance, and includes Cast Members such as lifeguards stationed on stands, parking attendants, parade float attendees, and those working in horticulture and pest management.
However, eligible Cast Members in these roles will still be required to put on a mask if they go indoors or find themselves unable to remain socially-distanced from others.
Guests at Walt Disney World are no longer required to wear a mask outside, but must put one on when they enter a store, restaurant or attraction. This is the first time Disney has changed their mask protocol for Cast Members since the reopening of Walt Disney World.
