Our Experience With Wearing a Mask in a Disney World Water Park

Today is the official reopening of Blizzard Beach water park at Disney World!

And we’re here to check out the rides, eats, and any changes! Prior to the park’s opening, Disney introduced its mask policies for guests visiting Blizzard Beach. And after spending the entire day there, we’re sharing our experience with wearing a mask in a water park. 

Disney shared that approved face coverings are required to be worn by guests ages 2 and older in “designated areas.” Such areas include the park’s entrance and exit, food and beverage ordering areas, restrooms, lockers, and retail locations.

However, masks are not allowed to be worn while in the water or on water slides for safety reasons. We also learned that they’re not required to be worn while waiting in line for rides.

Additionally, masks are not required while walking in between rides, or while sitting in your lounge chairs. Lounge chairs are already distanced, and signs ask guests not to move them.

Although masks don’t need to be worn under those circumstances, a Cast Member shared that they do recommend keeping your mask with you at all times. That way, if you need to go to the restroom or want to grab a bite to eat after experiencing the attractions, you won’t need to return to your belongings to get your mask.

You’re probably wondering how to keep a mask with you on a water slide without getting it wet, because we were curious too! In order to keep our mask dry, we used a little waterproof case that fits both a phone and mask!

Having that waterproof case made it easy to carry around a mask, so we were able to put it on whenever it was required. Plus, it was nice and dry.

Park maps explicitly outline face mask policies, along with additional health and safety reminders.

Plus, there are tons of helpful Cast Members around the park, along with signage, to let you know where you do and do not need a mask.
