What barriers will your family have to be able to return to WDW? Our list is longer than we realized

Advertisement
We have a trip planned for the end of September that I don't plan on changing so my hurdle is that WDW and the hotels are open. It would suck if parts were closed but that could also make a unique experience.
Side Note: I suspect that we had Covid-19 earlier this year. I'm a NYC teacher, my kids were in daycare/school until mid March. We were in Europe in February and live in the second hardest hit neighborhood-hospitals and thus hospital workers everywhere! My gym is even technically in the same building as a hospital.

I'll happily wear a mask for the safety of other guests. I've even started building my mask wardrobe for the fall!

Our barriers from the U.K. include...

Money
Flights being available
Travel insurance being available (currently not covering any covid issues if You book since March)
Quarantine on the way back into U.K.
Transport To and from airports being available
Accommodation availability
Swimming pool capacity
Cost And availability of food and other amenities
Other Orlando area amenities being open

Do the kids want to experience a toned down wdw or would they rather wait?

just a few thoughts!

its an 8 hour drive, and we can almost go anytime we want. So for us id say.

Certain attractions closed, possibly certain nighttime spectaculars closed. Other than that i dont care if the floor is lava, or its monsooning, ive got a date with the mouse.

Let me pile on here (really not trying to be a troll). But y'all do realize this virus is here to stay, right? Don't take my word for it but you will find intelligent references to the fact that eventually this will become the fifth known coronavirus circulating the globe (the other four cause the common cold).

So - two years from now - is wearing a mask still OK? Travel limitations still OK? Social distancing? And on and on. At least SOME level of risk for a deadly infection. How does this change what is and isn't acceptable?

We had to cancel our April trip, rescheduled it to August and just yesterday cancelled that one as well. We will stay put for a while, save our money and then take a proper trip when normalcy resumes.

I agree with you regarding the virus staying. I took the question to be about what additional barriers there are in the short term for us to overcome to be able to visit wdw.

Even if you have the money etc, for some people it’s not going to be as easy as it was to visit, even if the parks and Florida are fully open. Flights being limited, quarantines and insurance are additional barriers that if you are a Florida local you haven’t necessarily thought about as impacting out of town visitors.
