We are doing it this time! We are really going to do it!
What are we going to do? Well, once we are done being vaccinated (after our two week waiting period), we’re going to Disney World!!!
It only took a moment for us to decide to make the trip. And three and a half ours after that decision, I had contacted our original travel agent at Small World Vacations and we were booked! I even had plane tickets and restaurant reservations done. And parental visits scheduled for our days at Disney Springs and Epcot!
Now I just have to take care of all the minor details, like planning cute outfits to wear and deciding whether or not to buy those cute mickey ears off of Etsy.
So our trip to Disney might be over before it’s even begun!
See, Disney recently announced their plans for re-opening Walt Disney World starting in July. And that came with a lot of restrictions and cancellations.
What got cancelled, you may ask? Well, all of our Disney Dining reservations, including the ones for making the lightsabers! I woke up at five in the morning to make those! They cancelled those for everyone through the end of the year. They will let you make new ones 60 days out from your trip date, but that just means getting up in the morning to do it all again.
They also aren’t going to have parades, fireworks, or any shows that may draw large crowds. Since our trip is still months away this may not affect us, but with the way Covid-19 is looking right now, it may still be this way. This may also mean that there is going to be no Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party this year, which I was looking forward to.
They have also currently cancelled all Fast passes so they can use the lines for social distancing waiting for all the rides. We shall see how that goes.
Of course, this is just phase one of a phased re-opening. Disney is sure to have more up their sleeves in the future. We just get to play a wait and see game for the next few months.
