Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

What are you even talking about?
Well as you said, people have dining and hotel reservations currently, so therefore disney's hands are completely tied, they have no ability to institute a shut down, or to reduce capacity. And since that's an impossibility, we know that when they did it last time there must have been some mystical alignment of the planets that created a magic, previously unheard of, booking window, that allowed disney to reduce capacity, hell, even shut down completely, without cancelling reservations or hotel bookings. We got real lucky with that.

Their gonna have riots if they start dropping capacity again and cancel park reservations, especially for October lol. Though I’m sure that would come with a postponement of the 50th launch to 2022. Hopefully by October things will be sorted out. Then again the decision to move forward with the the 50th launch will likely have to be made by September.

Yeah I mean they only had to lay off almost all their cast members.

Who cares about them right ?

You don’t see any difference between March 2020 and now?

Tell that to all the talking heads doing everything they can to push the CDC to alter their guidance on masks. Which I hope doesn't happen. I honestly think that's who guides WDW
You mean the same people who rip their mask off the second the cameras aren’t on them?

There’s no need. That happened with wave 1 but we learned that these waves go up and then down. I know many people think we aren’t doing enough, but we should not overreact to the situation either. By the time you shut the country down the cases would be dropping naturally. The first time around we had no vaccines, no way to protect the vulnerable and no way of knowing cases would move in waves like this. We’ve learned a lot. It has come at a high price, but we know better now how to react.
I agree but I wish companies can see this also. Too many times, if profit targets are not hit, one of the victims of this is looking at the payroll expenses and that's when future of current jobs are part of the equation.

I think the most we'll see is masks indoors unless something goes terribly, terribly wrong.
Are there any people eating attractions or shows still closed? Or, not running at close to full capacity? Especially indoor stuff?

How about restaurants? Any that are entirely closed, vs reduced capacity within one?

My guess is that they're not going to reduce any overall capacity at all. The most they are likely to do is require indoor masks and then pack in full loads of people for all the indoor stuff. For restaurants where you cannot mask, they might bring more locations online and spread out capacity among them. Something like having the full restaurant location capacity they would have at peak with the reduced park capacity they have now (even if it's not reduced much, its not the same as super full day), allowing them to spread out and have less capacity in each location.

It's clear by now that masks beat out distance. If you're only getting one, it's not going to be distance. Despite what people may prefer.

As someone else pointed out though, they're not likely to do anything unless the risk of bad press gets to large. They've adjusted to "it's over" and most of the guests have too. Doesn't matter if it's over or not. Those who haven't just aren't going now. Demand has never been a problem, there's still enough in the "it's over" group no matter their vaccination status.

Attention all freedom lovers! Here comes the start of employer mandated vaccines. I expect this to spread quickly, it’s in a company’s best interest to prevent 2 week absences from staff. It will only accelerate once the FDA grants full approval.

It just blows my mind how many people are willing to ignore the horn of the oncoming train until it's too late.

Weird things have gotten a lot better for me since I was vaccinated.
Maybe for you personally. I'm fully vaccinated and things are better now that places are reopening where I live. My local amusement park finally reopened after being closed for over a year.

My point was that places were Covid is rising the leaders that did nothing from the beginning are still there. In that sense it hasn't gotten better. To be honest it looks good on them.
