Your free digitally added facemask will no longer be provided by Disney World.

USA Today reports :

Florida's Disney World reopened with new COVID-19 restrictions in July, one of which included wearing a face covering at all times except while eating or swimming. Park visitors who chose to not wear a mask while riding on attractions did not receive PhotoPass photos taken on the rides. 

However, Walt Disney World News picked up on a private Dec. 6 Facebook group post noting that the theme park had begun digitally adding masks to riders' faces after the fact. 



The digitally-added masks allowed for those in the photo properly wearing a face mask on rides to get their photos. Non-mask wearers were denied.

‘In response to guest requests, we tested modifying some ride photos. We are no longer doing this and continue to expect guests to wear face coverings except when actively eating or drinking while stationary," Disney said in a statement provided by spokesperson Jacquee Wahler.’
