On May 16, Disney Parks notified the public
that it would conduct a phased reopening of
Disney Springs in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.
In its blog post, Disney Parks noted that
it would require all visitors 3 years and
older to wear face coverings.
“This is an important part of protecting both
our guests and our cast. Please be sure you
have an ample amount of face coverings for
yourself and your party before you arrive”.
That rule apparently didn’t sit
well with several readers, who
fired back at Disney Parks.
A Twitter user managed to compile a number of
the responses, which, in turn, have gone viral.
Among the responses was one that read, “I’m sorry
but I and my family will not be coming to Disney
Springs with these ridiculous rules especially
wearing of the mask. Masks should be optional”.
Another one read, “No thanks. Masks and temperature
checks are not very magical no matter how you
try to paint it. Plus masks are meant to be worn
for short periods of time. Not all day long”.
Many Twitter users have since condemned
the critics who posted on Disney Parks’ blog.
“People are complaining about wearing
masks and getting their temperature checked
because it’s ‘not very magical’ and ‘doesn’t fit
with the Disney vibe’ … safety first”.
“Disney will be much safer without those
people … Protect the workers,” another wrote.
Though it initially discouraged it, the
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
now recommends that people wear cloth
face coverings in public settings
