I would be shocked if WDW opens before late summer. I hope I'm wrong, but the data suggests otherwise.

Here's the link. http://https://www.nytimes.com/inter...-outbreak.html
Hmmm now do I move my vacation from early June to early August or cancel all together

I think that infection rates can be reduced with "social distancing" and quarantining - the "managing or flattening the curve" for hospital space and resource management - but only for a short time.

Unless we have a vaccine or a medication that mitigates the effects of virus, we're just prolonging the exposure and infection rates to the population with these passive initiatives. At some point, we'll all pay the piper without a real and effective viral weapon.

How about On April 10, opening the parks ONLY for DVC members and guest staying at DVC properties

I think they'll have a soft opening that includes only those with on-site resort reservations which includes DVC and CRO. Hoping all restaurants are opened at that time too. I'm currently more interested in the food and drinks than the rides and shows.

Sounds good but I would feel much better about it if they waited until at least May 1. That and screening tests before they let anyone check in.

I was thinking this myself. Would this be something that they could/would do?

1. Limit the number of guests staying at the resorts.
2. Test all guests as they check in.
3. Test all Cast Members before reporting to work.
4. Just like during EMH, check all guests at the gates to make sure they are staying on site and have checked in to the resort.

If they know how many people are in the entire resort, they should have an idea of how many people could "fit" into the parks and still be spread out enough to control contact between groups.

Ive never been to an after hours event or early morning magic, but from what Ive heard theyre not at all busy. They know how many people go to those. If they could limit it to that many people in each park I could see that working.

California's current restrictions from the Governor is until April 19th and basically it's for non essential businesses, etc. etc. to remain closed until at least that date.

I've not seen a hard date published on this, and the most I can find that's official is "until further notice." The initial six-county order than impacted us in Santa Clara had a hard date of April 7. I've not seen the April 19 in official documents.

This, for example, just says "until further notice":

Cheers.
