As a private business, Universal has the right to require patrons to wear whatever they dictate. If you'd like to partake in Universal's brand of family fun, you will have to abide by their rule. This six page diatribe on whether or not masks are useful is a complete waste of time. Call your local right wing whackos' talk show and tell him about it. Rules are rules. Crying doesn't change them. Good day to you sir.

I'm all for them reopening soon. And hopefully WDW too. If they follow safety measures they'll be fine. I disagree that this move will backfire and cause more deaths. But if anyone dose feel that way there is a solution. Just don't go. Pretty simple really.

Masks are useless. In fact, unless they are medical n95 masks, they are less than useless. A South Korean study found that wearing a cloth mask for any reason, whether it be to attempt to keep from contracting, or to keep from spreading any illness, actually INCREASES the chance of spreading disease. You are actually strapping a cloth petri dish to your face. Just think about that study that found beards to contain microscopic particles of feces... for that matter, hair, clothes, and skin can contain any amount of germs. Hand washing and not face picking/touching is key. It has always been key. Masks are not only a false sense of security, they are adding to the danger. Moreover, a Johns Hopkins study found that COVID-19 is no more transmissible or deadly than the Flu. Numbers from the CDC confirm it as well. My wife wears a mask to avoid confrontation, but I refuse to be a prisoner to irrational fear. Plus, I have worn enough masks in my lifetime. If they do not keep dust out completely, how in the heck will they keep out germs? And if they fog your glasses, you know that all that air is coming and going right past the most sensitive part of your anatomy, your eyes, where most disease is contracted. Mandatory masks are in fact, as another wise gentleman said, a placebo.

How will they stay 6ft apart. Also they say they will check temperatures but not everyone is symptomatic but may still have it. Lastly what are they going to do deep cleanse rides after every single use. I luv this place we've been many times to Orlando and the California one. But this is way to soon for this. Most haven't even opened movies . This will backfire and cause innocent people they run into later at the market more death. See you in 2022 no way I'd put my family at risk.

Thank you for writing an article that is so well put. And put honestly and bluntly. We, as a society, need human interaction and if a company presents a well thought out way of reopening, then it has every right to do so.

I agree with everything you said. But I am fearful of the hyper overactive behaviour that “freedom” brings. Having engaged in some of the “discussions” about face masks, the need to respect others space by social distancing and the entitlement that goes with “paying” for entrance into a theme park, I truly fear the mob like mentality that will come with opening up the parks.
The response from many is: well, if you are afraid, stay home. The funny thing is, I can’t go anyway so I personally don’t have anything to gain or lose by sharing my view. I wish I could go.
If people behaved in a way that reflected the Disney spirit, I think Disney world would be the best place to visit.
