I really miss the Mad Tea Party M&G at the GF. My girls did that when we took them in 2012. I also really miss the Winnie the Poo M&G in the UK pavillion.
Simply put, All of them!Our family enjoyed our mid August trip to WDW. It was nice to jump on rides with no waits and very different to stroll down a nearly empty World Showcase. The memory of this trip during the Pandemic will be set apart for its unique circumstances. But as annual visitors to the most Magical Place on Earth, we experience these same rides every year, and most the time the rides don’t change. So why do we cherish these annual trips. For our family, it is the Cast Member and character interaction. Disney has always been better than everyone else when it comes to hospitality in their theme parks and resorts. And what sets them apart from everyone else? It is their people.
This last trip was fun, but we sure missed bantering with Gaston, visiting with Betty Shambles, talking with the citizens of Main Street, enjoying the Laugh Floor, or getting a hug from Pooh. Talking to your waitress or visiting with Cast Members in the stores is difficult behind a mask and a face shield. At 57, my hearing is not the best and is made more complicated behind sterile face coverings. Asking a question to a Cast Member about shirt size is made more difficult when trying to keep the 6 foot distance. Simply put, interaction with Disney’s most valuable commodity, it’s people, is very difficult in 2020. I can’t wait to go back next year, but hopefully it will be post pandemic. I’ll take the crowds, rope drops, and long wait times in exchange for parades, fireworks, and most of all, a Disney smile from a cast member.
Which Cast Member interaction would you miss the most?
