    News Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    Got an email a couple days ago stating our work from home order was extended to Nov. 1. I drive a company vehicle home and have a laptop with a VPN connection to our network, so it really doesn’t change anything for me. I hardly ever saw my office anyway even before the pandemic.

    On layoffs, very bad attendance, and Iger's legacy being one of disgrace

    I wish Lucas would admit what the rest of us already know.....the CGI remakes of the OT are garbage and the theatrical cuts would sell like hot cakes.

    Disney's FY20 Q3 Earnings (8/4/20)

    In this new VOD world, I guess all the money spent on Klipsch and JBL Pro gear, multiple massive 18” subs, projector, processor, amps, and acoustic treatment weren’t such a waste after all like my wife said they were. Who’s stupid now, honey?!?! But Mulan is probably still gonna suck.

    On layoffs, very bad attendance, and Iger's legacy being one of disgrace

    Ive worked for a natural gas distribution company for 17 years. I do corrosion mitigation. Pension and 401k plus ESOP plan. I readily admit there isn’t many places like that left. If the world doesn’t fall apart, I’ll retire at 58.

    I wouldn’t say gone. I have one of those jobs. It’s certainly not easy to find and I kinda lucked into the one I have, but they do exist.

    School me on zero-turn mowers

    Ok, so my yard is almost 2 acres. I’m wearing out a Lowes/HD level rider every 2 summers. I live in Alabama, so grass cutting season actually lasts around 6 months of the year. I’ve decided to buy a premium residential or entry level commercial zero turn. What brands or models is everyone using...

    Im no engineer smart guy type, but that seems like a reasonable assumption and plausible.

    Voyage of the Little Mermaid is done, won't reopen with the parks.

    I know they spent money, but it seems it always came at the expense of something that already existed. Net gains in experience and attraction count stagnated.

    Voyage of the Little Mermaid is done, won't reopen with the parks.

    Yep. Even in the best of times for them moneywise you had attraction and restaurant space that sat unused in MK, previously accessible areas in World Showcase turned into storage, as well as 2 giant vacant show buildings that were never used, a 30 year old Studios that is still woefully under...

    Trying to rebound from financial disaster while simultaneously not spending one dime more than they have to?

    Do you think that Disney world will reclose its gates due to the rising number of COVID cases in Florida and around the country?

    I would add “for a time”. Then, human nature kicks in and round and round we go. We are seeing that now with some places that were hit hard early, locked down for a while, and now cases are rising again, because people.

    Yeah, I kinda caught that in the thread title.

    Our recent trip from July 12-22 was the same. I have a couple pics I took when walking into Liberty Square from FL. One each direction toward Frontier and Mansion. They were taken at noon and there’s barely anyone in the shots. One day the MK opened at 9. By 11 we rode Space, 7D, Pooh, Small...
