The first Disneyland coronavirus face masks are now available to everyone — as long as you visit a location near the theme park.
What’s going on?
Disneyland has started to sell its first Disneyland face masks — a traditional face covering with the Disneyland logo on the side — at the World of Disney Store and the Backlot Premiere shop at Downtown Disney, The Orange County Register reports.
The masks join a lineup of “Wishes Come True” blue color collection, which is a collaboration between Disney theme parks and the Make-a-Wish foundation.
- There are other shirts, headbands, back packs and apparel made in this color to honor the partnership.
Back in August, Disney Parks released images of the new masks that would be required for domestic park cast members. The masks apparently have an image of pixie dust on the mask, as I wrote for Deseret News.
- The masks were designed to help cast members “stay comfy and protected with stylish and functional new face coverings.”
- Dr. Pamela Hymel, Disney Parks chief medical officer, said in a release at the time that the masks aimed to keep cast members safe.
Over the past several months, we’ve spent significant time and brainpower to provide our cast members with face coverings that are both functional and comfortable, and I’m proud of the incredible results. They fit well, feel great and can last for more than 50 washes.
Disneyland remains closed since it shut down on March 14 because of the coronavirus pandemic. California recently issued guidelines for how theme parks can reopen, but Disney has criticized those guidelines for being too strict.
