Will I be going to the reopening of Disney World? Should you?
We will probably not be going. We banked our Disney Vacation Club points for the year and cancelled our trip for late July. Summer is not my favorite time to go to Orlando and we usually try to schedule our trips very early in the year or in November. That said, I am so excited about this news and it does give us some options for summer.
As DVC members, we really enjoy the resorts and have even scheduled short vacations where we don’t venture into the parks and just focus on fun at Disney Springs and the fabulous pools.
Whether you should or shouldn’t go immediately upon reopening is a personal choice. Obviously, if someone in your family is immune compromised or sick then more caution is warranted. We are longtime Disney lovers and we trust that they’re opening in a safe, responsible way and we can’t wait for our next visit.
I will keep you updated as things unfold but for the very latest information, the Disney Parks Blog is always the best source for info.
