While the vaccine has started to be approved in a few countries, it's going to take months if not years for everyone to get it and we'll all be wearing masks for at least the next 8 months, so do yourself a favor and ditch the uncomfortable (and environmentally disastrous) disposable face masks and buy you some comfy face masks from Disney, who has put a dozen of its mask packs down to their lowest prices ever. This includes their cute holiday packs (opens in new tab) as well as packs for Pixar (opens in new tab), Star Wars (opens in new tab), Classic Mickey Mouse (opens in new tab) and of course Marvel superheroes (opens in new tab).

Because wearing your mask properly over your nose and mouth is the heroic thing to do in the middle of a global pandemic. So wear cute masks and let's save the world!

I have a couple of the mask packs that are on sale today — and am now kicking myself for not waiting for a sale like this to pop up — and I can testify that these masks are soft, comfortable, and easy to wear for long periods of time including during workouts. I walked 9 miles around the Magic Kingdom earlier this week in the holiday mask you see here. They're easy to wash and haven't shrunk up in the wash the way that Disney's first cotton masks were more prone to.

If you're wondering about sizing, here's the long and the short of it: if you're over age 9, you're probably going to need the "Adult Large". Adult men with wider heads or larger mouths will want to buy the Adult Extra Large. Youth Small is for toddlers — after all, Disney requires guests ages 2 and up to wear masks in the parks — and the Youth Medium is for younger grade-school kids. When it doubt, order a size larger and then just tie the ear-loops back and bit.

As an extra note, if you wear glasses — or if you're just tired of your masks slipping down off your nose when talking — do yourself a solid and grab this multi-pack of stick-on aluminum nose strips (opens in new tab). I've worn these on my Disney masks since my first batch arrived, and I can peel them up and swap them between masks as I go through the week since I'll have to take them off before I run the masks through the washing machine anyway. They help improve fit, they help reduce mask slippage on tighter masks, and they'll help you avoid fogging up your glasses, so they're worth every penny of that $6, especially when you're getting 100 in a pack.

  • Seriously this is a tech site unless that is some high tech face mask idk why its being reviewed on a site about Android
  • Not been around in a few years, eh? At least with the author and subject this is actually a believable plug.
  • Years??? on the mask wearing...HELL NO.
  • I am sure AC gets a kick back on them.
  • FYI, their newer masks are single layer cotton and the on sale items are dual layer polyester (which is actually recommended against wearing).
  • I havnt graduated from the medical grade stuff. Im not fancy. At least I wear one all the time when im out. I don't understand people who get all outraged about being asked by businesses to mask up. 50% of the reason we wear them is to protect ourselves. The other 50% is to protect others. Just because one is unconcerned about the virus that doesn't give them the right to put others at risk. Be a trooper and a good neighbor and wear the damned things.
  • Are they more stylish than plain white, ok.
    Are they more comfortable? How many similarly priced and shaped plain white have you seen?
    Are they as effective at filtering out COVID-19 as the average Chinese KN-95 that costs $0.40 and can be reused every 3 days for weeks. No. Why is Disney cutting their price? Because they bought tens of thousands of them and have no park customers. When (if) they are able to reopen their parks, masks won't be needed. Do they come in an iOS version? for Apple users? Wait!! Those are the plain white ones!!
