The updated policy now specifies that visitors at dining locations must wear their face masks while “standing, waiting or sitting.”

Previously, the face mask policy for dining locations was not as specific.
“Face coverings for each Guest age 2 and up, which must be worn in all public areas—including while entering and exiting dining locations—and can be removed while eating or drinking,” read the previous policy.
Disney World has updated its face mask policy several times since it reopened from its pandemic-related shutdown last summer. A notable change was when Disney specified that visitors to keep their face masks up unless “actively eating while stationary” at the parks and Disney Springs.
Just last month, the face mask policy was updated to say that even visitors who have received the COVID-19 vaccine would still be required to wear face masks.
