I hadnít realised there were no excemptions allowed 😳
I guess Iíll stop looking at flights now until Iím sure the masks will be over with. 😢
My daughter has autism as well but does manage to wear a mask in the parks. She actually gets very agitated if she sees anyone not wearing one.

I can confirm that Disney unfortunately are definitely not making exceptions to the mask rule for children or adults with autism. They are still operating the Disability Pass system though despite Fast Passes not being used.

Yes I was reading this , very interesting ! I understand adults wearing masks as a necessity but for 2 year olds it's just a bit of a stretch for me. Hopefully it gets changed

So sorry to hear that , yes it is a all very strict over there right now...all we can do is hope they ease the restrictions so that we can go. All ifs and buts all the time...

The problem is that any exemptions and everyone will start the "they aren't wearing one, why do I have to?" complaining in the parks.

It is far easier (and of course also safer) for Disney just to mandate for all rather than try to police an exemption policy and all the pain that goes with that

The reason there is no exemption for your 18 year old isn't Disney, it's the behaviour of the rest of the general public

I donít have a toddler but if I did and I knew they wouldnít wear a face mask, I would not start planning until the restrictions have been lifted and look like they have been for good. There is no point planning Florida and then worrying yourself over it up until the time you go. DLP seems like a good idea.

We go next september but are having a Disney free trip as I know from previous experience with toddlers that our 20mth old just won't hack the pace, we plan to do discovery cove, SeaWorld and legoland but that's it, more beach and springs relaxing days for us this time but still I hope she doesnt need to wear a mask, it's bad enough in this country when its hot never mind over there 😬😬

My daughter has ASD too so we wonít be going back until 2022 and if masks (god forbid) are still necessary then we will postpone to 2023

Our little one will be 3 in December and we have a trip booked for May (moved from November). We have until the end of March to change it. We have decided if there is no movement on the mask rules by March we will move it to December 2021. We will keep trying every 6 months with the hope we get back before he starts school in 2022.
