    News Walt Disney World's COVID-19 reopening plans announced - July 11

    We have a res starting July 13th that was a rebook from a cancelled June trip that was a rebook, etc, etc, going back to March. My poor wife has planned and planned for months and now we get to start all over, provided that we can even get a park reservation. I understand why they have to do...

    I hear ya. And like I said earlier, not jumping on you about the 1.5-2% number, but I see all these stats and studies about the percentage of anything COVID related, and it just irks me. The goalposts are constantly moving, numbers are always changing, and we won’t know the TRUE numbers for...

    You’re doing better than us. Our 13 year old daughter touches her face twice as much with a mask on as she does otherwise. She also touches everything within arms reach....twice. 😂

    With nothing to back it up. Not being mean to Pixie, but you can’t just throw out a number and say 1.5-2% chance of being infected with a mask and not qualify it in any way.

    That’s the CFR. I was talking about the new numbers for IFR. The new CDC numbers may be as bunk as the earlier models. Who knows right now.

    Becoming infected how? By being next to an infected person? Over the next 2 months? 6 months? Ever? Big city or rural? Where did this 1.5-2% number come from?

    Universal Puts Disney's Reopening on Defensive

    I haven’t thought of that, but it’s a good point. With dining capacity way down, if the only place to eat is in the parks, that would suck really bad.

    Universal Puts Disney's Reopening on Defensive

    With the high fixed cost and overhead WDW has, do you think they’d really just open up soft without knowing how many folks would show up? They may, but Disney seems to like to know exactly how many to staff for.

    I read something today claiming the CDC is saying their estimate now on the IFR is 0.26%. Anyone else hear this? Is it true? On a slightly sarcastic note, do we, or do we not believe the CDC today?

    Universal Puts Disney's Reopening on Defensive

    I take back what I just said, but only slightly. I’d give them a pass for leaving Future World closed. It’s a construction zone, plus the embarrassment that is JIIWF, anyway.

    Universal Puts Disney's Reopening on Defensive

    That’s the big question for us. We have a stay booked July 13th and Aug 10th, and if, like some have said, MK is not open, then it’s a no-go for us. Same applies if it’s only MK open. I understand that they have to make the money work on their end, but so do I on my end. It’s just not worth it...

    Not trying to pick a fight, but you’re choosing a friends anecdotal evidence over some anonymous guy on the internets anecdotal evidence. Don’t get me wrong, I’d probably do the same, but it doesn’t make me any more right or wrong.

    We have a stay booked for July 13th and August 10th. We’ll see which one sticks. Could be both. Could be neither.

    So as not to offend any nationality or age or ability, I try to just dislike everyone equally at WDW.

    I didn’t take it as sarcasm. Of course, you are right and I fully intend to discuss this with my doctor. Was just wondering if there had been any somewhat definitive studies anyone could point me to in the interim. All I’ve seen is “hypertension bad” and I truly believe it’s not that simple...

    I have a question I haven’t been able to find a good answer to. If already answered here, forgive me, it’s hard to keep up. I’m 46 and take blood pressure meds. My pressure without meds is barely in the high range. I’m 5’7” and 155lbs soaking wet. Very active and in great overall health with no...

    After further reading, it was in a little town in south Alabama not terribly far from the Florida state line. 4 hours away in the middle of a pandemic. Hard pass.
