Walt Disney World will no longer Photoshop masks onto guests

In weird 2020 news, Walt Disney World was apparently digitally altering photos of unmasked guests but has since changed its mind about the practice. 

In a photo posted to a private Disney park Facebook group and obtained by Walt Disney World Today, a rider appears to wear a digitally edited face mask. Disney spokespeople confirmed to USA Today and The Washington Post that the company did briefly add masks to photos of guests who weren’t wearing them correctly or whose masks had slipped during the ride, but confirmed that it won’t do so anymore.
