M-I-C…see you next year! K-E-Y…why? Because I don’t want to wind up on a ventilator.

Walt Disney World has just reopened to the public, after they responsibly closed parks around the world in mid-March as coronavirus marched across the globe. Florida, home to WDW, has been particularly hard hit by the pandemic.

Disney has implemented measures that are intended to protect guests: contactless temperature checks at the gate, mandatory masks within the park, hand sanitizing stations all over the place, limiting the size of crowds, cancelling their iconic fireworks shows…and it’s for all of those reasons that I wouldn’t want to visit Walt Disney World until COVID-19 is behind us.

That’s especially true of Walt Disney World in Florida, where COVID-19 cases broke an all-time record for the nation over the weekend. And southern California is no walk in the park these days, either…so there’ll be no Disney magic for me or mine any time soon.

Read freelance writer MPC’s full column, and learn about Disney’s coronavirus protection measures – and what some parks suggest you can do on a roller coaster to prevent the spread of the virus.
