    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    Most likely not the entire outdoor queue. When I was there in early June, you usually didn't have to put the mask on until you hit certain points, like an area where you were semi-indoor/covered, or until you hit the official entry to the ride (where the stand by/fast pass signs are). My...

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    The unvaccinated do though - Delta is spreading like wildfire. But right now they are not wearing masks, and since there is no easy way to enforce masks for only the unvaccinated, that means we are back to everyone wearing them. Don't like it? Blame the folks refusing to get the shot. If...

    News Ohana reopening July 9th

    The sauces aren't being prepped off-site, they are completely pre-packaged at the moment. I have a severe food allergy, so I spoke to chefs a lot on my last trip and was told repeatedly that right now a lot of the sauces, sides, etc are not being freshly made but come packaged from a factory and...

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    Unless a variant arises that obliterates all vaccine immunity, I don't see any reason why we would have lockdowns again. Mask mandates maybe, but not lockdowns. With working vaccines, a majority of deaths at this point are preventable. You are right that it would be political suicide - causing...

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    I fear that even FDA approval will help as much as we would hope. I guarantee it will become political and people will say the FDA rushed or was pressured into approving the vaccine. There are loud voices out there constantly naysaying any good pandemic developments. On possible plus would be...

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    This is where I am at as well. We have collectively hit a brick wall. The percentage of Americans who are in danger of getting COVID (and spread it) refuse to get vaccinated, wear masks, social distance, or following any health guidelines. At this point, any mask mandates or restrictions are...

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    This is an interesting series of tweets, though it does miss one encouraging point for the U.S. - the UK is largely inoculated with Astrazeneca, which to date has had less efficacy overall, and the U.S. with Pfizer/Moderna, which has been higher. His general point that the numbers will go up in...

    The Swan - Best View and Dining

    We stayed here a few years back and got lucky with a balcony room at the Swan. I may have asked if we could have a balcony but can't recall. We were on the 5th or 6th floor - Higher is better here, since lower rooms would be more enclosed in the courtyards. I know there is no pre-book requests...

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    Sadly, I do not believe in people these days. Nor do I believe that most people will do the rest thing regarding masks. People care more for politics than what is best for their fellow man. Then again, my jaded beliefs are probably because I know a lot of people who refuse to get vaccinated and...

    News Disney mask policy at Walt Disney World theme parks

    God I hope not. We are fully vaccinated and heading to Disney tomorrow for our first trip in three years. I was all for the removal of masks outdoors - even among the unvaccinated, it has been known for a while that spread is minimal outside. But I am not sure I would be ready or comfortable...

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    There is some newer data out there that spacing out the mRNA vaccines to 11-12 weeks may provide a better immune response in some people. The U.S. is currently sticking with the original data which is more thoroughly researched.

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    Regarding the pandemic and vaccines, I have been advising hesitant people to avoid the news all together and speak to their doctor. That's a person who knows their medical history and may hopefully give them some unbiased information that they will trust. Edit: just read Heppenheimer's post -...

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    The hard thing is that this is a person that I love and usually have a great relationship with. I'm struggling to process the conversation that I had with him and how to move forward. There were elements (that I won't repeat) that left me truly disturbed. A lot of it is due to his politics and...

    Now, yes. But the story regarding my brother-in-law and their friends casually spreading COVID apparently took place last October.

    No, they all think the whole thing is a joke. I pressed him on this point, and all I will say is that it made me want to weep for humanity. People just don't care about others

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    Yesterday, I was talking to my vaccine resistant brother-in-law about what it would take to get him vaccinated. He's 40 and works out, so he claims he has no risk of serious disease, so a vaccine isn't necessary. Pressing him further, I came to understand one of the harder problems we will have...

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    I'm still skeptical that any of those people will actually get vaccinated now. I think it was just a ploy to encourage the mask mandates to be dropped. I do agree with the second part of your post though - this does show the CDC's faith in the vaccines (finally). One thing that may help with...

    Anecdotally speaking... My church pastor's family recently caught COVID after one of his teenage children contracted it at school. Though his family recovered soon, he ended up in the hospital with COVID pneumonia and blood clots throughout his legs and lungs. He is in his early 40s, slim...

    News Disney mask policy at Walt Disney World theme parks

    That sounds great, but how do you enforce it? If 50% are vaccinated and 50% unvaccinated, how do you keep the unvaccinated wearing masks? Especially when they are likely the ones spitting on cast members and raising a ruckus in supermarkets. The answer: there is no easy way to enforce it...

    News Disney mask policy at Walt Disney World theme parks

    The percentage of people vaccinated also in crucial in answering this question. I've been fully vaccinated for about 3 weeks and each day I feel slightly more comfortable with interacting with others. When we get to the point where about 65% of the country has at least one shot, I would assume...
