Worst vacation ever! (10/20/20) We went to three parks—Hollywood Studios - horrible, Epcot - slightly less horrible; Magic Kingdom - very very bad. NO happy faces because everyone's face is covered all the time (unless sitting down eating). NO happy children running up to the roaming characters because there are no roaming characters. NO beautiful landscaping—hardly any flowers and (especially in Hollywood Studios) there were actually areas of bare dirt and no plants at all. NO parades. What they called a parade in Hollywood was three convertible cars with characters riding inside and two characters walking behind and 6-8 dancers. The “parade” in MK consisted of one float (pretty but hardly a parade with one float!) and a few street dancers. NO maps handed out—they want you to use the tiny map you can get on your phone. NO stopping by snack vendors for ice cream, soda, etc. because most are closed or you have to order and pay from your phone and then wait to pick up your order. We found one (that’s 1) ice cream vendor in Hollywood where we could actually just wait in line and be served! Magic Kingdom had two street vendors - balloons and ice cream/soda. NO people mover type rides where the older folks could just sit and view the park scenery—all closed. But don’t worry, you still have one familiar thing—long lines (90 minutes for the Runaway Railroad) since most rides are shut down, so there is absolutely no advantage for visiting when there are fewer people. What a waste of all that money!

I have to agree with the other posters. Over the top. Service was wonderful, staff was great, but there is no magic right now. No music, no bustle, no noise at the resorts, just no fun. Too contrived, too micro managed. Pool is dead silent at resort, small boats are not running, nothing to do. We spent the same money as a regular trip for half the amenities. Just not the time to do Disney. And I feel it for them, because what is the right way to phase back, but please warn people before they plan on having a normal DIsney trip (of course knowing about masks and such) that their stay will be nothing like that at all.

I am annual pass holder and a Disney timeshare owner. This was the first time back since the COVID-19 pandemic. The “health and safety” measures put in place by Disney is over the top. There are no showers, no fireworks, and many restaurants are closed. The places that are open serve food that is very expensive and not very good. You hear an announcement every 20 minutes or so warning you to wear a mask then Threaten you if you don’t Comply you will be asked to leave the park. That gets old very quickly. The “cast members” walk around being “mask police” “cast members” will micro-manage almost every move you make at the parks. There are markers on the ground every where you want to go telling you where to stand, they are Not 6 feet away, they are more like 8 feet or more feet away from each other. Disney has taken the magic away and replaced it with making you feel like you are going to be kicked out of you do not comply 100% of the time, they make you feel like your about to be kicked out of you do one thing they don’t like. If you stay at one of the resorts you are told you must wear a mask even if you are walking by yourself with no one around, or else you will be kick out....Ridiculous! I recommend not going to Disney World until common since take over again. Right now fear to running the parks.

I have to say, in all the years I have been to Disney this was the absolute worst!! So many things closed, can’t find food easily (unless you can use technology to scan a bar code to order ahead or make reservations really early) , lines extremely long, and not too many places to get some shade or rest with so much closed off. It is sad, but after 50 years and at least 30 visits to Disney we may never go back. Not to mention park hours were shortened and paid the same amount, not exactly a fair deal. One last bit of advice, if you are looking to get on the new Star Wars ride...don’t hold your breath. We tried twice to get on the wait list and were unable each time. However, there were other families that said they were able to ride it multiple time. Not really a great system. Not really magical anymore.

We love Disney but the magic has faded with the austere covid protections and inconvenient construction detours. After a couple hours the cotton masks are saturated with sweat and saliva. Hard for kids. Epcot at $125/day makes it a +$300 day outing for couples. Best to wait until they stop construction and Covid ends.
