If a child won't tolerate a mask when someplace is requiring them I would just stay home and not venture out. It would be nice if people could relearn the skill of being responsible for themselves instead of demanding others change to meet their demands.
I gave serious thought to creating a few new accounts just to "like" this more than once.

Don't want to wear a mask? Nobody is forcing you to go through the hassle to be there and wear one.

I have a FL AP. I already hate wearing the masks for the limited time I have to be outside while traveling to and from car to stores and can't imagine spending a whole day at Disney with one on. I'll probably be letting my pass expire.

I don't get all the outrage from people when nobody is forcing them to wear a mask to begin with - just don't go until things change. 🤷‍♂️

You don't need multiple accounts. Just go back and "like" the hundreds of other posts that say the same thing.

The flip side to that is that is if a place doesn't require masks and has been cleared to operate should be able to do so without people getting offended. If you don't want to be someplace where people aren't required to wear them then stay home.

Okay, done venting. 😷

I think this one sums it up better than the others I've been reading on here. :)
After awhile, all those "If you don't like [insert current topic here], then don't go to Disney" posts start to look alike to me. I don’t understand what purpose they serve other than to dismiss someone’s concerns and cut short a discussion they don’t like. I think everyone knows they have the option not to go to Disney.

My only concern was the lack of hand sanitizer locations, I just didn't feel there were enough compared to say my local supermarket where there is one it seems every 20 feet and one always in vision.
I am at Disney Springs right now and there is hand sanitizer like every place. You cant walk 100 feet without running into a hand sanitizer. Every body is wearing a mask. It is 92 degrees and not one person has passed out, although i am close but not because of the mask. (The boathouse old fashions and shipwrecks). Here is what I can tell you about masks. N95 no go horrible. Cotton homemade nope horrible. Paper blue mask like you get on Amazon. EXactly the same as with no mask in 92 degrees with sun shining directly on you pretty darn bad. Just so I am clear no mask and paper blue mask are the same. Its hot here. With or without a mask. Oh and Disney Springs is empty. Anybody wanting to come out the B is open and the service is fantastic.

No, I don't think they *all* know they have the option not to go. While some raise concerns, others are clearly raising smokescreens and demagoguery and rationalizations to give Disney a black-eye for their reasonable restrictions or to make the case those restrictions shouldn't be in place.

We can tell because they raise issues which are easily dealt with, or their reasons are not based in reality or science. They just want their way because they want their way and any really poor or transparent or not-grounded-in-reality argument will do.

Again, there are those who do have valid concerns. They're usually not the ones dismissed with "well then don't go."

“We” can tell? “They” want their way? Who in the world are you speaking for?

I haven't been able to keep on on threads lately, but a quick search of this one didn't bring up results of "ticketing center"...

Does anyone know if the Ticketing Center at DS is open currently? It's not listed on the site with what's open, but that list also mentions it's the "Dining and Shopping" list, and I don't believe it is categorized as that.

I know they're not selling new tickets, but my Mom's pass was originally set to expire on 15 April 2020. With current extension expectations, I suspect it will now expire about 10 Aug 2020. She'd like to get in and get it renewed (or buy the new one, which ever way she needs to do it), but since she's going from Out of State Platinum to Residential AP, she was told she needed to do her renewal in person. I know we also don't know the reservation system rules, but when it opens, we'd be looking for making reservations 31Aug-03 Sept time period, so if she were to need a valid pass to make her reservation, we'd have to get it taken care of before reservation system opens...

Stopped by for a walk this morning, and it was definitely busier than recent photos had shown. You won’t confuse it for a pre-Covid Springs, but it was far from a ghost town by 11am.

World of Disney had too many folks inside for my preferences, distancing was not possible walking through the store on the main “paths“. Big draw seemed to be resellers cleaning out the Baby Yoda plushies. I don’t have any desire to revisit the store if it looks the same as it did today on future visits.

Co-Op was better, but I don’t know how many more folks would’ve been allowed in before they switched to the queue. If I was seeing 25% capacity then 100% would be ugly

Mask usage was worse than I saw on a first week visit. Plenty of folks without food/drink not wearing their masks walking outside, but the bigger problem was many inside WoD didn’t have them on either. Did hear Disney stop a 2 year old from entering without their mask, but they provided one to the family once the guest stated they thought it was 3 and up.

Lots of 3rd party employees walking through without their masks. Not sure why Disney can’t crack down harder on that, as the service sensitivity doesn’t really play. One PH employee was even spitting on the walkway as he walked.

Overall, still glad to have the option to walk around and feel a bit of normalcy. Personally not at the point where I want to spend a time of time in a non-essential indoor setting, and today’s visit did nothing to change that opinion.
