Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, has made a significant change to its photo policy — anyone who takes their mask off during a ride won’t receive a photo from that ride.

What’s happening:

  • Disney World reopened on Saturday with a few changes to the park, including a face covering requirement for anyone 2 years old and older.
  • Guestscan not receive their ride photos if they’re not wearing a mask on the ride, CNNreports.
  • In fact, the company has an ongoing policy about refusing to give out photos on rides if someone is doing something unsafe. Breaking the mask policy is one of those unsafe measures now.
  • According to WDW News Today, the policy is in place at Splash Mountain, The Haunted Mansion and Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin. It will apply to all PhotoPass opportunities for rides, too.

Bigger picture:

  • Disney has asked anyone who is feeling ill or sick to leave the park. The company told CNNit monitors each case individually.
  • Disney World has reopened as Florida has seen a spike in coronavirus cases in recent days, with more than 15,000 cases in a single day, breaking the single-day record for any state, per MarketWatch.
