Well, you can't really take much stock in any of this as the company has no extra insight into how this virus is going to go vs the rest of us.Re: Repost from one of my responses to another post
I just received an email from Disney offering a free dining plan with stays starting June 1. I am thinking they are fairly certain that they will be open by then. I cannot take advantage of it because I have an AP. However, this might be good news for me since I have a reservation in early June and another in mid-July.

OP asked for an opinion. I gave mine. You do not have to like it.They’ll lift the restriction. They need Florida residents in economic struggles...
You’re on deck.
I’m having a hard time taking comments like “reasonable” from anyone but infectious disease experts these days
I tend to agree...because that could be in the “second wave”...which will really scare the bejesus out of their lawyers and PR people
...i tend to be sarcasticI mean, to be honest, I'm sure that many people giving their opinions on the coronavirus either watch a lot of cable news so they are now experts OR they work for the CDC. No need to feel any shame at all.
It is more probable that the parks stay closed until the end of the year than to be open in 19 days.I dont know if that is irony or if it is actually real but I was just wondering if that is actually the realBobChapek in that post upthread or if we are all just to assume it is a joke. Strange that the Disney CEO would post here but I thought I would ask.
As for the original question, April 19th is the target date although that could be pushed back. If the infected cases are on the decline in the US by then it could be a different story. On the plus side Florida has sort of flatlined the last I saw when it came to infected cases. Either way, the weather is getting warmer, which will only hurt the virus (a good thing) and you cannot keep the country going like this because a Great Depression will cost a lot of lives as well.
So, you realize that without forum members opinions, there's no reason to have any members, or a forum at all, right? All forums like this one are meant to share opinions. Probably need to get off your high horse.I mean, to be honest, I'm sure that many people giving their opinions on the coronavirus either watch a lot of cable news so they are now experts OR they work for the CDC.

Phil - You've been on these boards a long time. You have to know it's a parody, bud. So let me assume that you're questioning if we're all just being punked by the actual Bob Chapek, I'd suggest to go back and read many of his posts. If the actual Bob Chapek posted any of that stuff, he would need to be fired (he probably needs to anyway). The way @realBobChapek has behaved on these boards, it'd be like Ozzy Osbourne being elected Pope.I dont know if that is irony or if it is actually real but I was just wondering if that is actually the realBobChapek in that post upthread or if we are all just to assume it is a joke.

In my opinion, if WDW announced a day in advance that its open THE PLACE WOULD BE MOBBED just like it was on the last day before it closed..I dont think there is an answer to this question. Everything is a big question mark right now. Even if Disney opened tomorrow - I doubt they would get a big crowd. People are afraid to leave their homes - I dont think they would even consider Disney. A real melting pot.
