News: Disney World Will NOT Require Guests to Wear Face Masks While Swimming

Now that Disney World is planning on reopening some of its hotels as early as next month while its theme parks will be opening later in July, we have SO MANY questions!

And while we already know Disney World Resort will be requiring guests and Cast Members to wear face masks at all times except when dining, will we have to wear one at the pool?

According to Disney World’s website, all guests ages three and up must wear face coverings when visiting Disney World Resort and guests must supply their own masks. But rather interestingly, their website is now stating face covers can be removed when dining or swimming.

Keep in mind Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach are expected to remain closed even after the Disney World theme parks reopen, but this will be good information to keep in mind in case you want to visit the pool at your Disney World Resort.

Not requiring face coverings to be worn while swimming is in keeping with CDC guidelines. According to the CDC, they “advise those wearing face coverings to not wear them in the water. Cloth face coverings can be difficult to breathe through when they’re wet.”

Disney hasn’t shared much information on the reopening of their pools. We will continue to keep you posted on face coverings and information regarding the hotel’s public pools as it is released.
