I want to talk about what Disney feels like now. The feeling is definitely different but also, the same. The magic is there and I would recommend going. With that being said, I would also not recommend it to certain travel parties. Let’s talk about the pros and cons.
-Having to wear a mask all the time.
-Needing to keep 6 feet away from people
-Character meet and greets are not happening
-To avoid people grouping together no fireworks or parades
-In order to enter a park, you must have a Park Pass and Park Hopping is not allowed
-The park hours are shorter than “normal”
-Crowds are much lower, resulting in lower wait times
-No need to camp out for a parade or firework spot in advance
-Cavalcades are a great new way to enjoy seeing characters. Also, unusual or rare characters are out
-Short wait times mean seeing more and doing more
-You don’t need to necessarily, be at the park first thing. Also, your nights are not so late and crazy.
-Enjoying your resort is easier because of the shorter park days. Another option is exploring and enjoying Disney Springs.
-Cast members want to create a magical experience for you!!
I spent several days in the parks in July and truly felt the magic! It’s recommended to plan for a more relaxed day. The reason is because it is really a slower pace than usual. It is amazing how much you can do, see and experience in a short period of time. An example is, I had a goal to ride Soarin’ 10 times in one day. Because of the low crowds, I was able to accomplish this!! What goal would you like to accomplish? What would you like to try that normally you couldn’t??
