For the record, I am very critical of DeSantis’s response to...everything, but COVID-19, in particular. However, I struggle to believe it would not have made national news if there were clusters of illness from any of the Central Florida parks. The news agencies love headlines critical of theme parks. I somehow doubt NBCUniversal or Disney are able to quash such stories on CNN. I’m sure Anderson would love a free trip to Disney World or Islands of Adventure but that only goes so far.
Even California Gov. Newsom admitted yesterday that Disney’s response (and presumably Universal’s) to the pandemic has been strong. His concerns lie squarely on the attraction of outside tourism to Anaheim, not on Disney’s safety record.
