WDW Restricting use of Neck Gaiters neck gaiters

With Cast Member and Annual Passholder previews happening at Walt Disney World this week, we are learning how strict Disney is being regarding face coverings. Apparently neck gaiters do not meet Disney’s face covering requirement.

Twitter user Theme Park Shark is reporting that neck gaiters are not allowed in the Disney parks. Gaiters don’t have loops or ties which is a requirement according to Disney’s new health and safety regulations.

In order to visit Disney World, all guests ages 2 and up must wear a face covering.

The Disney World website states that all face coverings should:

  • Fully cover an individual’s nose and mouth and allow the Guest to remain hands-free
  • Fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face
  • Be secured with ties or ear loops
  • Be made of breathable material, either disposable or reusable

There’s no word if Disney will allow neck gaiters if they have ear holes. If you are planning on visiting the parks, wear a traditional face mask to be safe.
