We have more refurbishment news to share with you!
We’ve received loads of refurbishment announcements over the last few days! But as a recently redone dining location reopens, another one will be closing.
California Governor Gavin Newsom has implemented a system where “Stay-at-Home” orders are put in place in regions within the state once that particular area falls below 15% ICU capacity.
Earlier this month, some regions, including Southern California — where Disneyland Resort is located — fell below this capacity level, triggering the stay-at-home order to be implemented in that region. The stay-at-home order is then set in place for a minimum of three weeks, at which point the situation can then be reevaluated. The order was set to expire in Southern California on December 28th, but as California’s ICU capacity continues to fall, Governor Newsom has announced that the stay-at-home order will remain in place in Southern California.
A few days ago, it was announced that a stay-at-home order could go into effect in Southern California.
Ever since Disney Springs reopened on May 20th, more and more restaurants have been opening back up.
But today, we noticed one previously opened establishment was strangely CLOSED!
There certainly are some interesting situations arising in the travel market as a result of the global health crisis.
Perhaps the two most notable of these situations are the changes to the way that air travel works and the temporary and permanent closures that are currently affecting the tourism industry. We’re taking a look at how such massive effects could impact YOUR next Disney vacation and giving some tips to help. Let’s dive in.
The Re-Open Florida Task Force has been meeting this week to determine the best protocols to recommend to the different business sectors in the state.
Today, one of the discussion topics was the best ways to reopen restaurants (which has been discussed in previous meetings) for small-businesses, chains, and beyond. We’re wondering how we might see these recommendations take effect for dining in Disney World. So, here are some of the protocols that were suggested during today’s Task Force meeting!
We will update this post as we get more information.
On March 27th, Disney World announced that the parks would remain closed “until further notice.”
While we don’t have any official word from Disney on a projected reopening date for the parks, we did notice something interesting on the reservations site. This might give us a clue about Disney’s current thinking on the timeline for reopening.

We’d like to thank Adventures By Daddy for the glowing review – “Like the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival itself, AJ Wolfe’s e-book is comprehensive, but presented in an easy, “digestible” way. The e-book has a gorgeous compendium of photos, and is a great way to experience and relive the festival once you return.”
In addition, we appreciate the positive review given by Running At Disney. “Last year I got the DFB Mini-Guide to the 2012 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival e-Book and it was a life saver! The book features a full, daily schedule of events for each day of the 46-day festival. This level of detail, organized by day, can’t be found anywhere else online or in print.”
