This may be a ridiculous question, but I'm wondering what are the odds Haunted Mansion stays closed for a while after the park reopens? It dawned on me yesterday that an attraction making light of death may be a bit inappropriate for a while. If some of the other indoor attractions are closed I suspect it could go down with those.
No I dont think so. There was similar talk about Tower of Terror following 9-11.

I hope not. It’s a fun, not really scary vibe. If they had a ride/attraction based on a pandemic or virus outbreak that may be considered a little too soon.

Wonder if the other insurers will follow?

"U.S. insurer Allstate Corp said on Monday that it would return more than $600 million in auto insurance premiums to customers as many Americans stay home and drive less due to “shelter-in-place” orders to curb the coronavirus outbreak.

Most customers will receive a “payback” of 15% of their monthly premium in April and May, the company said."

Seaworld CEO resigns -

SeaWorld is taking this tougher than a lot of other parks. When Universal or MK are shut that's it...but when you have live animals like SeaWorld and AK you have lots of expenses feeding and cleaning habitats.

That Twister ride at Universal kept operating. Made us relive hurricane nightmares.

I just read your article, “Latest COVID-19 models move the peak impacts in Florida to mid-April as Disney continues to look towards reopening”. I am really concerned about these types of posts especially from a group as respected as WDWMagic. I encourage people to remember that these are all “models” and they are frequently changing. It is also important to remember that what comes up and peaks needs to come down. I am concerned with these types of postings that people are not getting the true nature of this pandemic or the road back to some type of resumption of normalcy. This “model” is based off of current behavior. If people start behaving differently, the model will change yet again. As much as I am hoping that we can resume our trips to Disney as soon as possible, the Disney company as well as us all have a responsibility of addressing our entire population at this time...both in the US and globally.

I'd think the only reason it would be closed would be until they figure out a way to prevent the mass of people cramming into the area before boarding the ride vehicles.

Most posters know that these models are just that - models. Models that will change repeatedly before this is over.
