Posted: Friday January 1, 2021 11:13am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Disney today released its annual "things to do in the new year" list and alongside Remy's Ratatouille Adventure,  Cirque du Soleil's Drawn to Life is slated as coming later in 2021.

The show was originally planned to begin on March 20 2020, but was cancelled due to the arrival of COVID-19. Since then, Cirque du Soleil has gone through a turbulent period with mass layoffs and filing for bankruptcy. 

Here is the mention in the "21 Ways to Kick Off 2021 with Magic at Walt Disney World Resort" press release from Disney today:

Get Excited for Even More Magic Later this Year – Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, the new family-friendly attraction coming to the France pavilion in EPCOT, will debut in 2021. And the new Cirque du Soleil show “Drawn to Life,” coming to Disney Springs, will be a collaboration between Cirque du Soleil, Walt Disney Animation Studios and Walt Disney Imagineering. More details about these experiences and other excitement happening around Walt Disney World will be released at a later date.

A significant basis of health problems in the US (and much of the developed world) today isn't malnutrition, it's the consequences of over-nutrition. True dietary deficiencies, with the exception of some diseases or treatments that cause that malabsorption, are so rare in the US that the only time I've seen cases in my career was on deployment to Afghanistan. Our problem is that we consume too much, not because we lack some vital ingredients in our diets.

Yes, but does the average American get the vitamins they need? Seriously, look at the junk an average American consumes. Most of it can only loosely be considered food.

Actually, there are. There's a Doctor that I watch on YouTube, Dr. John Cambell out of the UK. The essence of his channel is mostly the reading of studies, and explaining how they were done and what the results were, and if they are of merit. He's a very measured, and non sensationalistic man, and it's a very good channel. He read a study where vitamin D showed good results.

My little scorecard I’m keeping of friends and family.. seems Moderna is in the lead by a big margin with the side effects. No data here but just asking people but it’s like 19 Pfizer shots, 2 side effects.. and Moderna 13 shots with 9 side effects. Not peer reviewed so it means nothing.🙂 Hopefully you will be feeling much better later today and tomorrow.

Ok. This all changed a couple hours later. Got very tired and then hit with the chills right away. Then nausea and body aches. And a fever. It sucked last night.

I've got doctors and nurses in my extended family. They do such important work. When I visited loved ones in the hospital I ate in the cafeteria. I could see some of the visibly stressed staff eating at record pace ( I thought they were in the Army ) eating pizza, hot dogs, hamburgers, fries and then exit the cafe.

Step 2, RNs who are so valuable are in the heat of the battle and in the firing line. Refuse to get vaccinated, hold them accountable for not complying to policy. A sad example is that a nurse in the other town's hospital who refused to get vaccinated contacted covid, quarantined with symptoms and recovered and is now back to work as a critical care RN.

Just a sore arm at the moment. We will see tomorrow morning.

And here’s is a great example of why it’s so hard to be healthy in the US: an aversion to having regular yearly physicals.

Step 1. Stop firing nurses.

Speaking as someone who once landed in emergency surgery because she dismissed a surgical abdominal problem as just a viral bug (‘I’ll totally feel better tomorrow, Mom’…. ED three hours later… my mother was *not* thrilled) while she was in residency, doctors can be the worst patients. 😅 (Though, I’ll also say the last two years have been very hard. It’s tough taking care of yourself when you’re working in a constantly stressed/breaking medical system, battling misinformation, dealing with understaffing, and you are hardwired to place the patients before yourself. 😞 We are definitely not immune to the same issues with weight gain, depression, ect that everyone else is dealing with, even if we theoretically know better).

I would be surprised if there is no testing site around/in Heathrow that could accommodate you. And I believe an Antigen Test (ie the rapid) will be required as there are only a limited number of places that can turnaround a PCR in less than 24 hours. Two to three days out would have been lovely and that is what it was for the vaccinated but c’est la vie, Omicron reared it’s head. Theoretically, it’s so they can better catch people with this more contagious variant. As someone who is supposed to go to Egypt for 3 weeks next month, I’m just greatful for no expanded travel ban or post travel quarantine requirement (for now). Here is the CDC’s website for travel requirements: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/testing-international-air-travelers.html Rapid antigen is accepted, just make sure it’s the right kind, wherever you get tested.
