The global health crisis has created many challenges for the tourism industry, especially for those businesses with cruise lines. Last year, even Disney confirmed that the last of its business to resume would be its cruises.
Spring break season is quickly approaching.
In spring, we typically see major crowds in Disney World as the parks fill for one of the busiest times of the year. And while wait times are rising and Disney extends park hours as March continues, there’s a good chance we won’t see a major swarm of visitors.
It’s no secret that tourism is a HUGE industry in the state of Florida.
With major theme parks like Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando, miles of beautiful beaches, and a host of other activities, Florida attracts visitors from all over the world. The coronavirus pandemic had a big impact on traveling last year, but just how badly did it hurt Florida? Today, we found out.
As the situation with the COVID-19 pandemic continues to develop, rules regarding masks, travel, and more in the U.S. and other countries continue to be discussed or changed depending on the circumstances.
So far, we’ve shared that the U.S. may be considering some domestic travel restrictions, COVID-19 testing is required for international flights coming into the U.S., and COVID-19 testing may be required for domestic flights in the future. But, now we’re seeing some important updates coming out of the United Kingdom that could seriously impact travel plans.
Since the coronavirus pandemic began, there have been many changes to the way that we travel.
We recently learned that vaccine passports could be required for air travel and events, and that a negative test is required for international travelers coming to the U.S. Now, the United States is considering a COVID-19 testing requirement for domestic air travel.
The United States is set to issue new requirements for domestic and international travel.
The White House has announced a new Executive Order on Promoting COVID-19 Safety in Domestic and International Travel that mandates both a required quarantine for international travelers and mask mandates during air travel and more.
With the first doses of the COVID-19 vaccine finally being distributed, vaccines are top of mind. While the arrival of a vaccine to fight the global pandemic could certainly be the first sign that “normalcy” will return, it may not be the whole “cure” that Disney World needs.
Having a vaccine isn’t like flipping a light switch and the world goes back to normal — the same can be said for Disney World too. When it comes down to it, it may take years before consumer confidence and expendable income are back to where they were in 2019, and that can alter when we could once again see “pre-pandemic” Disney World.
If you’ll be heading abroad soon, or are thinking of flying to the United States from another country, important changes are coming in terms of travel requirements.
Just a few days ago, we shared that the U.S. might require a negative COVID-19 test for all international travelers. Now, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has officially finalized its order regarding COVID-19 test requirements for international travelers and we’re breaking it down here for you.
It’s been several months since Disney World reopened its gates to the public.
Airports and airlines are beginning to adjust their health and safety regulations as events unfold. Restrictions are easing up on international travel and airports are implementing new protocols. Just this week we reported on a fancy new system that monitors crowd levels and cleaning frequency. Guests visiting Florida for a trip to Disney World will have more flight options if they choose to fly with Frontier Airlines.
Traveling to Disney World can present a certain set of challenges due to the current global pandemic.
At present, the CDC is recommending that anyone considering travel get a COVID-19 test before their trip. This also comes with challenges as many testing sites are generally booked up for days or have extensively long lines.
