In the photos Disney Parks uploaded, there is a peppermint plaid mask that has Mickey Mouse’s face and the word “Joy” printed on it, a red mask with classic Disney characters in gingerbread form and plain red masks that have either a Mickey Mouse logo or a stylized letter “D.”
At Walt Disney World Resort, face coverings are required for cast members and all guests above the age of 2 due to the severity of the coronavirus pandemic. Masks can only be removed when eating or drinking while a person remains stationary and socially distanced by at least 6 feet apart.
