Do you know how SunRail -> Brightline -> WDW connectivity would work here? Would you have to make a train switch from SunRail to Brightline? Or would some of the talk of SunRail and Brightline sharing an east-west corridor perhaps enable one smooth SunRail ride from downtown Orlando to WDW?
While winter will push people indoors in most states, in Florida it actually enables people to be outdoors more, which is preferable to limit the spread of COVID.

Keep in mind, Disney is a member of multiple business...
