Woke Disney World has finally begun damage control efforts after a year of laying off 32,000 people, limited openings and going full steam ahead with liberal woke movements.
Disney let go of at least 18,000 in Central Florida, according to last year’s Florida’s state filings.
In December, 2020, Walt Disney World reversed their policy of adding digital masks to the faces of park visitors who chose not to wear a mask in ride photos.
“In response to guest requests, we tested modifying some ride photos,” the park said in a statement shared by WDW News Today on Dec. 12. “We are no longer doing this and continue to expect guests to wear face coverings except when actively eating or drinking while stationary.”
The buzz against Disney exploded across social media. The digital face masks were first edited into images from Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin at the Magic Kingdom and Dinosaur in Animal Kingdom.
The park especially faced growing criticisms and ridicule for not only adding the digital masks to photos, but from visitors who’ve had to wait for long periods of time for PhotoPass photos because of the edits.
Many Americans, upset with Disney’s support of liberal and socialism politics, decided to postpone or make other plans for a 2021 Disney World vacation.
Last year, Disney announced they were overhauling the Splash Mountain flume ride to lose its traditional story line inspired by their Song of the South movie to satisfy current Woke Movement standards.
“Disney-focused sites are full of users who decry what they see as a progressive agenda in the parks, and announcements about updates are typically greeted with threats of a boycott,” stated the Washington Post earler this month.
When Universal Orlando announced they were relaxing the COVID-19 rule of wearing masks Friday, their reservation desks lit up with inquiries.
Within hours, Disney World followed suit and the new policies at both parks goes into effect Saturday indicating guests will not be required to wear a mask outdoors.
Universal guests are asked to bring masks with them to wear when they go inside, according to a statement from Universal spokesman Tom Schroder.
Anyone in an outdoor line for a ride must have a mask on.
“Face coverings will remain required at all indoor locations, including restaurants, shops, and indoor hotel public areas. Face coverings are also required at all attractions from the moment guests enter the queue to when they exit the experience,” Schroder said in the statement.
At Disney World, masks are still required for indoor spaces including theaters throughout the attractions, on Disney transportation and at restaurants, except when guests are eating or drinking while stationary, according to the new posted rule online. Masks are optional in outdoor common areas and pool decks.
