But if the public doesn't support them and refuses to give them business, then they will remove them.

No. Disney has people removed and arrested if guests refuse to comply with their public health directives:

You are missing the point, if the majority of people say they will no longer go to Disney World until masks aren't required, Disney will drop the requirements as they won't make any money.

I am not saying it will be immediate, but likely by the end of summer and almost definitely by the end of the year that we see the general public refuse face masks en mass.

agreed, I was referring more to the pressure now and in next few months, and that WDW will not be backing down from
They shouldn’t back down. The last thing they should do is have rules and fail to enforce them - it’s completely unfair to people who rely on those rules when deciding on when to visit.

That said, these restrictions were adopted at a time when people had no way to protect themselves from getting and spreading the virus. That situation is changing rapidly. It won’t be long before restrictions are reconsidered in light of how effective they are.

Will be interesting to see how it plays out and how WDW responds-as there is already widespread rejection of masks and at some point when majority are vaccinated (summer 2021?) the public refusal to endure masks will be great

...you mean masks and social distancing in WDW may be relax or gone by this summer or early 2022 not summer 2022.

There are plenty of people that are ok with wearing masks, just as many as those who are not ok with wearing masks.

And those that are more concerned about masks have done less and have more pent-up energy to get out and do things now that they have a vaccine. And they haven’t experienced a mask in the Florida summer for 8 hours.

So yes I mean Summer 2022 before people start to pass on a WDW vacation with masks in any number that would effect there bottom line.

To be clear when I don’t have to wear a mask I don’t, and prefer not to. I prefer to social distance and hand sanitize pre covid as I will post covid.
But I always wear a mask when needed, I respect establishments rules and I follow them when required.
I did experience WDW with a mask in a Florida summer, and we will pass this summer and will do more water parks and beaches.

unless WDW could changed their minds and make masks and social distancing relaxing or gone by this summer.

By the end of summer I imagine pressure to remove masks will be immense. Most likely too cases will be as near to zero by then too. It’ll be interesting to see how it plays out as I think Disney and airlines will be the last hold outs for masks.

rude, agressive behavior is not allowed

I am not missing your point. The problem with your idea is that "the majority of people" do not share your blatant disregard for public health and safety.

Interestingly enough I went to see if I could find a recent poll to see where people stood and how it has changed over time. I could find at least 3 major polls done a week by pollsters from Summer 2020 through January of this year. Of the 30 biggest polls I couldn't find a single one after that. I did, however, find this Yahoo news story linked to a small poll which I really question the rests of:


Feel free to read it, but here is the focus :

While outside this poll, plenty of people have claimed that they’ll burn their masks and hug everyone in sight when the pandemic is over, the survey’s findings suggest the majority of people feel otherwise. The survey specifically found the following:

  • 72 percent of people still plan to wear masks in public.
  • 80 percent will avoid crowds.
  • 90 percent will frequently wash their hands and use hand sanitizer.

I'm not buying 72% of the country will continue to wear a mask AFTER the pandemic is over.

This is indicative of polling errors where polled people will tell the pollsters what they think they want to hear versus their actual desires or intentions

I wonder where you are. I live in a purple state. In an urban area. One that went 70% Democratic to give an idea. And I think mask use maybe 50% now and there is zero social distancing. Hasn’t been distancing for a few months now.
