There are a LOT of mask options to choose from out there. Some are cloth, some are disposable, some are reusable, some have a nose bridge, etc.
It’s one thing to buy a mask for yourself, but it’s a whole other beast to buy ones for your kids. If you’re traveling with a little one to Disney World, you’ll want to buy masks that they won’t absolutely hate wearing while in the parks. We’ve already shared a lot of our top 10 masks your kids will actually wear in Disney World, but it’s been a while so, we did a bit of digging, asked the members of our team for recommendations, and we’ve developed this list of 7 masks your kids (hopefully) won’t hate wearing to Disney World!
First, we’ve got to give a bit of a disclaimer. Some of these masks come recommended by our team members, others had high reviews on Amazon, and others are popular masks. We’ve done our best to make a list of some great options out there. Of course, this list is NOT exhaustive. There are tons of other awesome masks out there and if you’ve got some recommendations of your own, be sure to leave those in the comments below!
Also, these are the masks that we think and hope your kids won’t hate, but (as you probably know) kids can be a bit unpredictable. There’s no guaranteeing that you kids will love these, but we hope they’ll find them fun, comfortable, and easy to wear. Still, there is a possibility these might not work out for your little ones. Again that’s why it’s so great that there are lots of choices out there so you can get what’s best for you!
Next, let’s get into mask rules in Disney World. Right now, all guests ages 2 and up (regardless of vaccination status) are required to wear a mask in all indoor locations in Disney World, including restaurants except when actively eating or drinking. Additionally, masks are required for all guests ages 2 and up on all Disney transportation (buses, Skyliner, monorail), except for the ferry boats.
Alright, now let’s talk about the masks!
1 — Sock Fancy
One of the masks a DFB team member recommended are the ones from Sock Fancy. Sock Fancy has their own website, but we did find one of their masks on Amazon as well. The mask set comes in a pack of 3 and there are a variety of different designs.
The masks feature 3 layers…
…and has adjustable ear loops, as well as an adjustable nose band.
Here’s a look at their kids sizing.
You can get this 3-pack for $19.99 right now on Amazon!
2 — Adorable Disposable Masks
If you’re looking for a mask that’s protective but still lightweight, a disposable mask might be a good choice. There are lots of regular disposable masks that are a blue or other solid colors. But, if you’re trying to really encourage your young ones to wear their mask, getting ones with a fun design could be the perfect thing!
They’re individually wrapped, making them easy to pack and bring around with you in the park for when your kids need to switch out the mask their wearing.
They come in a whole bunch of fun designs and you can get a 50 pack for $24.98.
Here’s a look at the sizing.
This particular design is the “fun pack” but what’s great is that there are a whole bunch of other designs available too, including butterfly designs, tie dye, and more!
These WeCare Disposable masks for kids have over 11,644 ratings on Amazon and have an overall review score of 4.8 out of 5. Lightweight, fun, individually wrapped, disposable, and pretty highly reviewed — there’s a lot to like about these!
3 — All Kinds of Decorative Masks
Trying to convince your kid to wear a mask can be MUCH easier if those masks are really fun, or if they have quite a few to choose from, making them feel like they have a bit of control over the situation. That’s why we think the SchoolMaskPack Kids masks can be a good choice!
These masks come with a variety of options, again giving your kids the ability to match the mask to their outfit for the day or just pick their favorite color!
The masks are washable and feature a nose clip and adjustable ear straps.
You can get the “cool colors” pack for $22.99.
But, with the holidays coming up you might want to grab the holiday pack for $29.99! Some of these masks even feature 3-D effects, again making them very fun and probably great for photos.
We can imagine that these 3-D effect masks could get a little annoying or get sort-of in the way after a while though. So as fun as they could be for photos and for a little while, you might want to bring a back-up just in case!
Note that some of the reviews share that they’ve felt the masks were a bit small, so be sure to look at the measurements and see if they’ll work for you and check that they fit your little ones when they arrive.
These masks do have an overall rating of 4.4 stars out of 5 with over 16,000 reviews.
4 — The Breathable Mask
If you’re looking for something really breathable, then these face masks from Amazon might be a good pick!
These masks are noted by readers to be very soft and comfortable, as well as lightweight.
They have an overall rating of 4.4 out of 5, with over 3,000 reviews.
There is a colorful pack available which again could give kids the ability to pick from their favorite colors, turning mask selection into a fun activity.
This set also comes in a pack of 10 which is really nice as it gives you the ability to switch out masks during the day if needed.
You can get this set right now for $23.99.
5 — EnerPlex 3-Ply Mask
Another one of our DFB team members said that they’re a big fan of these EnerPlex 3-ply face masks for kids.
The masks feature 3 layers of fabric, are machine washable, and several reviews on Amazon note that they’re soft and comfortable, so it sounds like our team member isn’t the only one who is a fan of these!
These have a 4.5 rating out of 5 and over 100,000 reviews!
You can get a 3 pack of these masks for $24.95 right now.
6 — Disney Masks
Of course, we can’t make this list without mentioning the Disney masks. These tend to be a pretty big hit with most kids because of their really fun designs!
With choices that include fun characters like Mickey Mouse (4 pack for $19.99)…
…Minnie Mouse (4 pack for $19.99)…
…and even Lilo and Stitch (4 pack for $19.99), it’s easy to see why it would be fairly easy to convince your kiddo to wear one of these.
Sizes do tend to run pretty small with Disney’s masks, so be sure to keep that in mind as you select what options to get!
7 — DFB Masks
Last but not least, we’ve gotta mention our DFB Masks! These masks are VERY soft and comfortable and have some awesome designs true Disney fans will appreciate! Whether your little one is the ULTIMATE Dole Whip fan…
…wishes they were Rapunzel…
…or loves the Dapper Dans, there’s a mask for them!
These masks are one-size-fits-all, so for the little ones they should work if you use loop fasteners on the ear straps.
Other masks members of our DFB team recommended for kiddos (and sometimes even for adults) are ones from Old Navy, Mint United, and Athleta Girls — so those are some other options you could also check out. And that’s a peek at just some of the masks your kids (hopefully) won’t hate wearing in Disney World.
