    Oh right I forgot about the Moana walkthrough in EPCOT. That park is actually a lot better for non-IP rides so I’m hoping they add some more. Living With The Land is a fave.

    I remember when Epcot first opened. Most of Future World was sponsored by some company or another. It was a bit ridiculous. I remember going back as an adult and thinking that they toned it down a lot.

    What I’ve read is that the ride will be a kind of sequel to the movie, so who knows?

    Because Hong Kong is up to 25 new COVID-19 cases a day, HKDL is going to be closing. Meanwhile, Florida is up to 15,000 new cases a day. Perfect time to reopen!

    I just saw that on the runner on the news channel here. Runner #1: Florida sets another new record for daily cases. Runner #2: Disney opening 3 Florida parks.

    Are they fucking crazy?

    Have you met Florida? Yes.

    my brother is a CM and he said he saw videos of CM preview day. No one was social distancing and that was at an extremely limited capacity.

    The adults going is one thing, it’s your life and you get to make your own choices. But what the hell to the people bringing their children! Also that one mother in the video of the horse freaking out over a balloon, she pulled her mask down to yell at her child for crying! What is wrong with you??

    That video made me so sad, but Merida handled it like a champ.

    I wish it worked that way but it doesn't. They make that choice, come home asymptomatic, take their kid to the ped or go to the store etc, infect a vulnerable personal. So its not just their choice their life. Its their choice, someone elses life.

    I don’t think they should be open at all. It’s interesting reading the WDW Reddit, most people were pro opening and complaining about being called selfish for going.

    People are calling you selfish because you are being selfish. And stupid, careless, reckless...

    I wish they would stay closed for the summer, if for no other reason than to not infect the entire NBA. (That said, the basketball bubble is stupid too. And I'm very disappointed that I have to shoot a wedding during the first Kings game.)

    I am honestly angry that Disney is opening, but I cannot serve a customer a beer in a disposable cup and let them sit outside. We were told that bars/breweries had to close because of the spike in cases and that we're responsible for that, but the number has only gone UP since then, and on top of that it's totally cool to open Disney and other amusement parks because somehow that's NOT unsafe.

    Also these people coming from out of state to go to Disney come here where some of us actually live, and infect us. It’s not like they stay in the Disney bubble and I can just avoid Disney and therefore avoid them. They also pop out to the grocery store, the gas station, etc.and spread it around to locals. It just sucks. I really hoped Disney would postpone their opening.

    I mean, not not this, because this is definitely true and won't help matters. But realistically, it's probably way more likely they'll bring cases OUT of Florida than into it. No offense, but, 15,000 cases a day? I don't know why anyone would want to go there right now. I don't know how you Florida chickens aren't living in bunkers right now, I feel bad for you. :no:

    @Erie classic politician "I'm going to do something so you stop complaining, but I'm not actually going to do anything helpful." move.

    At this rate, from an outsiders perspective, the entirety of Florida is tainted grounds. Anyone from out of state traveling there should basically assume that they're bringing home a souvenir. Which is exactly where NY was back in April.

    Oh Jeff Goldblum, I literally just this moment remembered my dad lives in Florida.

    :oops:

    EDIT: I just checked his facebook and that was a mistake I won't make again soon. But he appears somehow to be Covid-free at the moment, wonders never cease.

    You're both absolutely correct @Vespidae and @Apples&Oranges - I've actually scaled back again and am back to literally only going grocery shopping and work (which is back to strictly filling crowlers for to-go orders, there's no real customer interaction at all). We went out to eat once about a month ago (outside, took all the precautions) and we were really uncomfortable with that and decided not to again anytime soon, and that was before this insane spike. It's scary here.

    So WHY ARE WE OPENING AMUSEMENT PARKS?!

    Because America is a capitalist nation with an "every man for himself" attitude. And "the man" with the loudest voice is corporate America.

    Just got notification of a big spike in local cases pretty much all due to a big party July 2-3. Goddamnit you idiots.

    Oh 100% people are bringing Covid home when they visit FL! I figured that’s basically a given at the moment unfortunately. It just pisses me off that the reverse will also happen.

    It is really hard to be one of the people doing as much as humanly possible to contain this thing, and stressing constantly about it, and in some cases, also worrying about all these months that are going by that our kids aren’t getting what they need because of being stuck at home... and feeling like it’s basically for nothing because in the meantime the state is making so many bad decisions.

    Also, Disney is crazy for reopening, but all these out of state people choosing to make the trip really suck too. You literally have to go on vacation this badly? I live right here, I wouldn’t need to travel, I’m already paying for passes, I have a husband and a stir-crazy toddler who also love Disney. I would absolutely love to have a Disney day right now and still you couldn’t pay me to actually go to a park with the cases like this. Even if I wasn’t worried for myself, I would never want to contribute to spreading this thing to others.

    I pretty much am living in a bunker. It’s contributing to significant anxiety and depression. I’m waiting for everyone to get it the fuck together and use their brains but I know it won’t happen.

    I don’t know why I went to that subreddit. What a bunch of entitled brats (and wtf at the mods deleting voices of reason)? It’s crazy how their butthurtness at being called selfish is worse to them than potentially being disease vectors.
