Yes even the bar at 3 Broomsticks was open. Enjoyed a beer there yesterday. People are overthinking the bar closures. I am surprised Oga’s is apparently reopening at that seems like one of the only bars in any park that really encourages you to hang out and “drink in.” Not sure how that one will work.
3 Broomsticks makes more sense since they sell food. The rule they announced was any place that makes more than 50% of their sales from food can continue to sell alcohol. Any place not allowed to sell alcohol on premise can still sell to go. I assume the drink carts count as to go since there’s no place to sit indoors and drink.

That's good news for my trip next week! I was hoping the bar closures didn't stop all alcohol sales inside the park.

hospitalizations also trending upward

In my neck of the woods (Ohio) cases have spiked up in the past 2+ weeks (over double the # of daily cases). Luckily, deaths have continued to trend down and hospitalizations have only increased a little overall and have dropped the past few days. Early on in this mess, Ohio and Florida trended similarly, I'm curious what diverged.

Many cities around here passed mandatory mask rules in the past few days trying to stem the tide.

For those thinking that wait times will be low, Kings Island just opened and their new coaster Orion. The wait time was 4.5 hrs. Reports are that it took many over an hour to get through security and temp check. Kings Island is using a timed entry.

Was the park open at this time? Cos it doesn't seem as if a lot of money was rolling in to US at these bars...
The first two were at city walk around 2pm. Second two in the parks around 5pm. Chez Alcatraz has done well from what I’ve seen.

Not all stands are operating due to demand but I’m sure they do fine on a given day and contribute to a lot of the daily income.

For anyone going to Disney soon, and are planning on using the pools, I would recommend getting there early. This was at Kidani and you can’t get in unless someone leaves. On hot days this summer with not a lot open, I’m guessing early bird will get the worm.786241B8-DD9A-41AA-85BD-DA339B1EF0CE.jpeg

I am sure you meant to add a sarcasm emoji but missed the button on your post. Those bars are not meeting their daily costs if at the height of the summer temps they don't have at least a couple of people in line for drinks.

You mean they’re not making profit off their $10 beers every few minutes? Kegs are not all that expensive considering the up charge, and they can’t be paying the one employee all that much.

Interesting - explains why several resorts I looked at elsewhere said their pool policy was to book (or assign) pool times and limit you to two hours. Disney may have to do something similar. Bottom line is that if you are requiring distancing, pools don’t have capacity for a full resort (as DVCs are designed to be) In their current configurations.
