Well, I do. But actually, thatís what they always tell us when we are in line to ride Haunted Mansion.

I wavered back and forth on whether to cancel a short mid May trip for my husband and I, but just decided to cancel it. I take care of my elderly parents, and am worried about bringing something to them.
Tomorrow morning I will look and see if there is anything for end of July, and if so we will take our granddaughters for a four day trip. If that gets canceled, I am not sure what I will do because the points were borrowed from my April 2021 points. Maybe deposit into RCI if I can do that.

Cancelled our March 21st trip and rescheduled to June 1st. Hope things will start to calm done by then.

Have an "adults only" trip set for mid-July. Have not cancelled and hope to by golly that a cancellation or reschedule IS NOT NEEDED. Fortunately- we don't plan to do much in the way of parks on this trip (mainly hang at resorts, perhaps one day of park hopping, and a day at a water park). Honestly - if the parks are still closed at that time - we got lots worse issues than our travel reservations as I doubt the global economy can sustain that degree of reduced commerce, for that period of time.

This whole thing has me rattled because I am an extremely data-based person, by nature, education and career - and good data is VERY hard to find right now. Based on what data I DO see (which is largely tainted by media) it doesn't seem like tide will turn until perhaps the morning of November 4th, when the current Jello wrestling match between the parties responsible for the media taintings will be placed on a roughly 2-3 year intermission.



Very frustrating... We need separation of Medicine and State!

As this goes on, my mid-May trip seems less likely. Has not stopped me from trolling dining reservations, though, and scored a dinner ressie for California Grill this afternoon for the 1 night pre cruise stay. It was also a brief moment of happy when I did the FP+ ressies this past Sunday.

Just cancelled a weekend trip for late April.

Still wondering about the May 30 trip that was rescheduled from March...

Well, not trips, but two more plays in our season subscription (May and June) cancelled. They'd already cancelled two in March. Sign...

Cheers.

We had two reservations, a mid May and a July. In order to separate the points into bankable and non-bankable (already banked once), I had to cancel both.

I made a new one for mid to late August with the NB points. It is a split stay which is all I could find. Availability is filling up fast for summer and beyond.

If WDW is actually open in August that will take care all our NB points except for the 25 in holding. I am hoping to be able to reallocate them into the reservation in June. I had to use a few B points to complete the reservation. So maybe I can get them back out and bank them by the end of July.

I HATE this virus. I want everything to go back to normal. Sooner rather than later would be good.

I would not mind if they did this ^ on a permanent basis.

Also, they could ban antiperspirant to "encourage" social distancing
