    What in the parks has been closed due to Covid-19? My wife and I were planning to take a trip near the end of Spring but are now wondering if we should not wait until Fall for parks to be more open.

    I understand your hesitation, Nathan, and I’m happy to provide some information that I hope will help you make the right decision for you and your wife.

    First and foremost, I would recommend familiarizing yourself with all the health and safety guidelines currently in place. Being informed will help you plan your best trip!

    As far as what is closed, the helpful techie folks at Walt Disney World have put together a handy webpage that details the experiences and attractions that are currently unavailable at the Walt Disney World Resort. The most notable of these are probably parades and fireworks. Although we’re all eager for those experiences to return, there are some great alternatives taking place each day around the theme parks and resort hotels. The Character Cavalcades at Magic Kingdom are a prime example. Though different from a traditional parade, these impromptu celebrations definitely contribute to a fun and festive atmosphere and give Guests the chance to see some of their favorite Disney pals. Similar experiences happen at all the theme parks! The Electrical Water Pageant, too, offers a procession featuring catchy music and bright lights. Check it out if you can!

    I’m also happy to report that the Taste of Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival is in full swing. Have you ever attended? It’s a family favorite at my house. We love snacking our way around the World Showcase, tasting globally-inspired dishes from the festival’s Outdoor Kitchens. Oh, and the creative topiaries offer a perfect backdrop for fun photos.

    Of course, there will be more to celebrate even if you hold your visit off until later in the fall. This October marks the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World. And you better believe that extra special festivities are planned! If you and your wife decide to visit later this year, you won’t be disappointed. 

    No matter when you decide to go, Nathan, we’re here to help, so definitely stop by planDisney if we can offer more insight, tips or suggestions!
