The only thing worse than someone chewing on a meal with their mouth open is when someone infected with coronavirus does this, while walking past you, at Walt Disney World.
That's why Disney executives closed a loophole at its four Orlando parks this past weekend, one that had allowed eat-walking tourists to roam mask-free, as long as they were chomping while clomping.
On Saturday, park-watcher blogs lit up with excited shares of reports that guests would no longer be able to defy mask orders while walking, just by biting into a jumbo turkey leg.
Sick of guests @ Disney Springs not covering their noses with their masks or walking around with a closed water bottle in their hands as a “loophole” to avoid wearing a mask. It’s so ignorant to the employees who get paid nothing to work harder than usual to keep you safe/healthy— R A I N A (@RainaMahalek) June 23, 2020
adding video to explain the full issue, which is more than just the above line.— 🍭 carlye wisel (@carlyewisel) July 11, 2020
there were also TWO MORE lanes of pedestrian traffic in the SAME walkway.
It’s not a fluke, either - we were directed straight into the bottleneck. (You can hear it in the background.) pic.twitter.com/nhSB3o8gXm
