Judge Voids Mask Mandate. Will DISNEY comply?
We have all been through the various stages of the pandemic, and thankfully once again, things seem to be relaxing in most places. In February of 2022, Walt Disney World took a big step in a return to normal theme park experiences and removed the mask requirements in the parks and hotels. Then, in the beginning of April, another step was taken and we were excited to report that Walt Disney World was going to and has now since removed the barriers to meet and greet the characters once again.
