    Default Bob Chapek: "..likely going to require is masks for both the casts and the guests..."

    From his interview on CNBC today, Disney CEO Bob Chapek talked about a number of things, including that he expects guests will be required to wear masks in the park at reopening, even during summer months.

    "...along with social distancing, one of the things that we're likely going to require is masks for both the casts and the guests..."
    (At the 5 minute mark of the interview if you want to skip ahead to that portion)

    Also talks about other things including the ramping up steps at Shanghai Disney.

    I wonder if they'll revised character costumes to include masks? Central FL in August with a mask does not sound like fun.

    Nope....no fun. I'm not going to wear a mask. Haven't worn one yet anywhere and certainly not going to wear one in a park, in the heat and humidity in the middle of Florida.

    Just guessing you won’t be going then. I won’t wear a mask their either for the same reasons. But I have been smart enough to wear them while shopping and other activities since my wife is working directly with Covid patients and I wouldn’t want to infect someone like yourself unintentionally.

    We wear our masks here whenever out in public. Its such an easy step to protect your neighbor, I don't understand the resistance of so many to do the same. Its no different for us from covering a sneeze, holding a door open, saying excuse me.

    If Disney is functional come August, we'll bring a slew of character inspired masks and head out to the parks as planned.

    Yeah, not wearing it to a park.

    I don't even know my neighbors name. Plus, i question the use anyways, short of wearing the appropriate masks that you can either correctly clean/reuse or have disposable options. Which doesn't apply to man.

    To be honest I don't know any of my immediate neighbor's names either, it doesn't change my desire to be courteous and kind. Same reason I donate to charitable causes when I can and make sure to pick up my trash.

    Fortunately going to Disney World is not a necessity for life and everyone is free to choose if they want to attend and follow the rules or not attend.

    Exactly, it's not going to be optional. People will be required to wear a mask in the parks or they won't be allowed in.

    Yeah I'm not and plus I don't like the room rules and everything else is going to be a pain. Hardly worth it.

    I am in the lower Hudson Valley in New York and the temperatures have been in the low 70's. I wear a mask and it does get very warm under it. I cannot imagine wearing one in the heat and humidity in Disney World. I know the grandkids would be very uncomfortable with them. I know it is all a precaution but I changed my mind for this year and made reservations for May 2021. It is wait and see now.

    I don't think it will last forever. Eventually the bottom line will do the talking. If people don't go because of the masks, that restriction will be removed.

    Actually, based on the way it reads, and based on the agreement with the union, masks will be required other places than just the parks. Wherever Disney cast members and/or guests are going to be in close proximity, I expect the masks will be required - except while eating or drinking. The cast members who are being asked to work and interact with thousands of strangers during a pandemic deserve the courtesy and extra protection of guests having a face covering for the short-term.

    I certainly hope it's extremely short-lived. But with the forced reduced capacity that's expected when they first try to start up again, the masks won't be the reason. They'll still likely be turning people away who wish to get into the parks. By the time they get back to more normal capacity numbers, seems like the requirement for masks will be gone - because that will mean the environment is deemed safer than it is now.

    Masks aren't mandatory over here, just recommended. I've not been wearing one when shopping - still furloughed so no work - not because I don't believe they work but because as an asthmatic I simply can't breathe in one. I have tried in the house sitting still with a home-made one but ran out of air and felt suffocated after less than a minute. Loosening it meant if fell off face so useless.
    I really hope a vaccine is developed so normality can resume.

    A very self-centered attitude. You are putting others at risk. If you don’t want to wear a mask, then stay home!

    That is a very self-centered attitude also. Some people can't wear the mask as mentioned previously. Don't throw rocks in glass houses. If you you have an issue with it, then you can stay home too.

    I'm not sure how things work when someone from another country comes to the US, but I have just learned that ADA has said that people with a disability cannot be forced to wear a mask. I don't know if the ADA applies to you if you come to WDW or not though.
