Some of the least crowded days the parks have had would seem like New Years if they had less than 50% of capacity operating.
I know. I worry they will end up with enormous queues this summer when large structures are closed and crazed fans who read Disney Food Blog show up for family fun and carrot cake cookie sandwiches.

Exactly. As someone that isn’t a local, it pains me even more to say this, but if you are not within a 1hr driving radius of WDW (we can extend it to The I-4 Corridor to generalize it), I would strongly recommend pushing off any vacations past summer (minimum into August). There are a lot of risks, and this especially goes if you have underlying health conditions. Nobody asked for this situation, but now that we have it, we should all act responsibly. For instance, @MansionButler84 , I think your transfer to Vero idea is very good, as it still allows you to scratch the vacation itch, but in a more distanceable setting. Just be responsible with your vacation choices, and stay safe.

That was our thought with Vero. It’s small and we can relax, which after this, sounds heavenly. We’ve also already had Covid-19, so that’s not a worry for us. I just won’t contribute to a mess at WDW nor will I spend thousands to have (undoubtedly) a lower-quality vacation. I can wait on WDW. I can’t imagine the stress of FPs and ADRs now with the added worry that something I reserve won’t be available. No fun. I see people whining about not knowing when Space 220 will open and I shake my head.

Vero Beach is nice but there is always a chance of hurricane central coming your way.

I too very much think the effects of this will be notably delayed. Unlike other events, there is a pseudo-false logjam of intent from loyalists and trip cancellations artificially all crowding together.

While there will certainly be cancellations aplenty, the rebooking I think will outweigh the economic cancellations.

The pain will really start to occur next year. BUT WDW is fortunate that it has incidentally positioned itself to have one of its biggest marketing pushes we've seen in way more than a decade. DHS is still extremely fresh, Rat/GoTG/Tron and the 50th are also being crowded together. Even more than they already were.

I think WDW as a result might weather this better than expected. But other Disney Resorts, DVC direct purchasing and Universal are likely to really suffer.

Still no update on the list of whats being looked at for abanondment ? {I am worried that the overhaul for spaceship earth is only delayed and not outright cancelled entirely}

There can’t be an update when Disney themselves doesn’t know that the future holds for the parks or their projects.

You shouldn’t be worried about the attraction recieving an update. It desperately needs it.

Blink, blink. Breathe, breathe. Day in, day out.
It needs a lot of refurbishment work, but I wouldn't say it needs an overhaul. Most of the show scenes themselves don't need anything changed.
With the direction the park is going, yes they do. Otherwise, it's pretty out of place for a centerpiece attraction.

IMO, it’s a bit subjective. I’d personally prefer staying at Pop or Art’s Mermaid Rooms to Any of Endless Summer (I don’t need a view of I-Drive’s Red Lobster), but they do cram a good amount of value into those properties. That said, just about anything beats the all stars.
For the price of any of those (Disney or Universal), I'd sooner look for a Hotwire rate at the DoubleTree or Holiday Inn on Major Blvd.

Wouldn't it be something to own an official poster of a (potentially) dead attraction?
They released a few posters today.

Really dig that Living Seas poster. I'll wait for the Journey into Imagination poster with Figment. That one is my favorite.

BTW, if you are interested in buying one of these now, there is a 20% off code. Use SAVEMORE in checkout, it brings it down to $72 rather $90. Still pricey but some of these are really well done.

They mention a 2021 opening in the poster listing. Interesting. I'd assume that was written before all of the current events.

Like with everything Disney builds, I'm not really considering it confirmed until actual construction starts on it.

I missed the SSE one so I grabbed the Living Seas. I'm waiting on the others to go up too.

And that code is funny since it shouldn't be valid at all right now but it works:
15% Off $50, 20% Off $75 or 25% Off $100 or More Restrictions: Valid March 15, 2020 (12:00 am PT) through March 18, 2020 (11:59 pm PT) or while supplies last...

Yeah I know! I was surprised when I tried it in the Promo Box, but I'll take it! I'm so bummed I missed out of the SSE poster. I'd like to 4 for my room, Living Seas was one of them, so thank you for giving me a heads up on that one!
