Where do I begin? Week of Thanksgiving was the perfect time to go. The weather was perfect. No rain! we didn't even need a jacket, day or night. The crowd size was way less than normal. I was pleased with the safety guidelines that were being followed as far as Covid is concerned. They were making you hand sanitize before and after rides and you had to have your mask on properly at all times. I witnessed someone being removed from a ride for not wanting to wear their mask. All of the rides and shows were great. It was easy to get photos with the characters even though they were with social distancing. Overall, it was great.

Universal studios seemed a little better about actually cleaning the rides. Islands was a mess. Way too many people for a so called capacity. Way too many people that don't social distance. Way too many people take their masks off and on water rides they tell you you can take your masks off?! Wait until after covid or you'll probably get it here.

Amazing day at Islands of Adventure. My experience was good but a little bit worried because the park was very crowded. Everything is designated to be as safe as possible but besides reminders to wear masks and signs that say that people can be removed from the park for not wearing a mask , this was not enforced. We saw lots of people eating or drinking while walking with no masks. Others , and lots of them wearing mask only over the mouth. But the worst was one family in a perfectly designed line, inside the attraction, drinking, and talking, with the masks down. I didn't see anyone enforcing the rules and as the day went by, it got worse I was told by another family that this is not happening in the Disney parks. Everything is designed and planed very well. But needs to be enforced

Weather has been nice, not too hot so mask wearing was bearable. They will send people to tell you to put mask on correctly but its required so im not mad about it. Lines said one hour took 30 minutes. Tried the butter beer, won't get it again, wasnt impressed. 10 bucks for basically cream soda is the only way to describe it.
