With all of the changes and modifications coming out recently, this is the question on everyone’s mind. Is it EVEN Worth Visiting Disney World Right Now?? Honestly, that is a question that only YOU can answer. It depends on what is MOST important to you. My family WILL continue to visit Disney World, even with all of the changes. Here’s why.
It is Worth Visiting Disney World
Let’s just admit this first thing. Over the years, Disney World has COMPLETELY spoiled us. Yes, I admit I am a spoiled brat when it comes to my Disney World vacations. We make our dining reservations in advance and get the most sought after dining experiences. At 60 days in advance, we fight for those fast passes that our family “just has to have”. We have an app that acts as our own personal tour guide. Then, once you arrive for your vacation, the fun begins. The parades, the meet and greets and the shows. Of course, this is not even a fraction of the magic that awaits you when you visit Disney World.
Then Covid-19 Happened
This virus has changed the way the world looks right now and has put a temporarily halt on a lot of travel plans. But, but, but…things are heading into a brighter and more magical direction. Our favorite Orlando destination has announced reopening plans and they DO look a lot different right now. I like to say that Disney World is going back to the old school style. For awhile, there will not be any “extras” such as parades, fireworks, etc. That doesn’t mean the magic is gone. It just means it’s going to look different for a little while. The safety of the cast members and guests IS the most important thing right now. In my opinion, it’s very comforting to know that Disney World takes my health and safety seriously.
Will this last through the end of 2020? We have no idea. Will things change as we progress towards a new normal? You can bet on it! Here are my thoughts on that change and how our family will proceed.
I am a travel planner and wrote this to my clients. This is truly how I feel.
Covid-19 has changed A LOT for all of us and our favorite travel destinations. One thing I have realized, is that Disney World has totally spoiled us over the years!! Big changes were released last night and although we aren’t very happy about them, it is what it is.
Will I stop going? NOPE
Will I stop feeling the magic? NOPE
Will I stop promoting Disney World? NOPE
Will I stop working for my clients? NOPE
It will just be a little different right now and that is OK. Disney World is going back to the “old school” for a while. Maybe you don’t want to visit until things are more back to the way they were, and that is OK. Maybe you are excited that this means much lower crowds, and that is OK!
There is no wrong or right way to do Disney World, only YOUR way. I am still here to make sure you and your family are taken care of, no matter what you choose. The magic is and will always be alive!
But The Magic IS Still There
You may disagree with me on this one, but it’s how I feel. The magic will ALWAYS be there. It doesn’t matter if we have dining reservations or fast passes. And although, I DO love getting hugs from my favorite characters, it’s not a “trip breaker” if we don’t get to do it. The parades and fireworks are nice, but it’s not the most important experience on our trip. The most important experience for me is spending time with my children and making memories as a family. Getting away from the real world for a bit and immersing ourselves in the magic of Disney is what it’s all about for my family. Dreaming of castles, cake pops and dole whips is what keeps us going in such uncertainty. Just because it “looks” different, doesn’t mean it’s going to “feel” different.
I believe Walt said it best:
Laughter is timeless, imagination has no age and dreams are forever~Walt Disney
Again, there is NO wrong or right way to do Disney! It’s only your way and what is best for you and your family. We truly hope when you do visit, it’s the most magical time of your lives!
