    Which land in Magic Kingdom has the best food?

    Its been on my list to try for ages. I think last trip we almost made it there, but a hurricane changed plans.

    News Disney stores inside Disney Springs area resort hotels permanently closed

    When we stayed at the Hilton the only reason I went into that Disney store was to buy headache pills. For souvenirs we bought at the park or Downtown Disney. Someone in our group picked up their convention-rate tickets from there too I think. In the age of FP+ I don't think they would be doing...

    Must do Disney has been removed

    I would not expect to see a new full-blown one until they know exactly how things will run post-covid. Who knows if Fast Pass will return, Tron and GotG may be the new must-do rides etc. Maybe in the interim there could be some new clips showing the current processes and rules around masks etc.

    Universal's Epic Universe (South Expansion Complex)

    But they may have at least basic plans for fitting Nintendo into the Kidzone area as planned a while back, wouldn't be hard to dust of those plans and go back to them.

    I've heard they use powdered eggs so that won't work?

    Will Disney Parks ever go cashless and just take debit and credit cards?

    In the UK some places went cashless as the cash kept getting stolen and the card fees were lower than costs of handling and more importantly insuring cash. A good example here https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-46507529 There is also the risk of staff stealing cash too. The hotels at Alton...

    Will Disney Parks ever go cashless and just take debit and credit cards?

    I answered your point as well. There are some cards that a register can accept as long as it has power and then it sends the information to the bank once it has a phone connection again. Think of the carbon roller method, they only get processed once they are sent off to the bank. Most cards...

    Will Disney Parks ever go cashless and just take debit and credit cards?

    It is very rare for the Visa / Mastercard / American Express systems to go down and if they do it is usually only one of them, so if Visa is down you can use Mastercard for example. But it seems more common for Disneys room charge system to go down. I would never rely solely on charging to my...

    Character meet and greet

    I would assume you will not be able to get close to anyone and hug them for the next year or until a vaccine comes along and is widely adopted. Maybe we will see some costumed characters doing distanced meets by the time of your trip but I don't think you won't see face characters out for a long...

    masks with special needs

    The simple face covering that Disney are asking people to wear doesn't really protect the wearer, it is to help stop infected droplets getting out the mouth and nose of the wearer. So the mask is to stop the person potentially spreading the virus, not getting it.

    Which land in Magic Kingdom has the best food?

    I've not had good scrambled eggs anywhere at WDW. I think people on this forum maybe appreciate things more, whereas for many people Skippers is "too exotic".

    Where to find sandwiches.

    Options are limited right now due to Covid so menus may not reflect all options that will be there in the future. But Starring Rolls was replaced by the Trolley Car Cafe (Starbucks) and they offer cold sandwiches there, but I've never bought them so they might just be Starbucks branded. Some...

    Are smart phones essential at the parks?

    on EE its £4.80 a day for 500MB so not worth paying for! Turn off the data and just use WiFi as needed.

    Disney's Streaming Services: Disney+ (and Hulu, ESPN+, Star, & hotstar)

    It doesn't seem impossible that it might be different in different countries/markets. In the US I think somethings get released on Hulu instead? But in the UK/Europe it wouldn't surprise me if Disney started adding less family friendly films.

    Are smart phones essential at the parks?

    Just turn off mobile data and then use Disney's WiFi. Unless you are on the Three UK network. Here is how to turn if off https://www.androidauthority.com/galaxy-note-7-mobile-data-roaming-710797/ https://support.apple.com/en-gb/guide/iphone/iph3dd5f213/ios
