Disney joins the U.S. Travel Association in campaign to boost travel - 'Let's Go There'

Sep 08, 2020 in "The Walt Disney Company"

The Walt Disney Company has joined forces with the U.S. Travel Association in an industry-wide initiative to boost travel.

“Let’s Go There” aims to spark conversation about future getaways and encourage travel planning and is backed by a coalition including Disney, Delta, Marriot, Hilton, American Airlines, VISA, American Express, Enterprise, United and more.

“The memories and experiences that travel enables cannot be replaced,” said Jill Estorino, President and Managing Director at Disney Parks, Experiences and Products, and a co-chair of the Let’s Go There Coalition. “This campaign is a first step in inspiring Americans to think about planning a vacation, and encouraging them to look forward to experiencing the wonder and joy—and even magic—that only travel can offer.”

It's a last gasp before shutting down. People who don't want to wear masks or socially-distance will travel. Cruise lines are shut down for a reason and I believe that is until January, so far. Personally, I've been doing fine and staying healthy, so paying to go somewhere to be around people are aren't as believing or cautious isn't my idea of a relaxed, fun, vacation. I can wait. There are other places to go and other places to spend my vacation dollars while having a bit more control of my personal situations. How Disney responds with prices speaks volumes!

"Let's go there"? I can't be the only one who thought of this...

Our three words are "be there soon!!"

I wish you could park hop when capacity is available but the reduced hours are fine. Was in AK today for 3 hours. Rode FoP, Dinosaur and Kali 2x each and EE once. The park was crowded compared to July and we could have done every attraction once in 4 hours. The park doesn't need to be open more than 8 right now.

As mentioned, one with a wire frame across the nose to contour it better there helps. I think the biggest help though is taping the mask down across the bridge of the nose. Keeping that area tight down prevents the humid exhaled air from leaving via the top of the mask towards the eyes/glasses and instead it will travel along the least resistance out the sides or bottom. And actual medical tape works best for this purpose.

That...sounds about right!

...I made that comment before I realized you were a yinzer... So bonus points. “The grass needs cut”

Oh well, not my best friend then. 😂🤣If you go listen to the song.. about halfway through you will know what I was talking about.

Rue D'BagaSep 09, 2020

Thank you both, but sorry DebRob, it's from the street at POFQ, my fave resort. 🥰

Wow. At this point I'm pretty sure I'm a target of the admin's on this site.. They can give the excuse that I'm not contributing to the conversation all they want, but that situation can be used toward 95% of the posts on here. I don't troll, fight, or instigate, but I'm definitely targeted for whatever reason. Been on this site for nearly a decade, but about to go radio silent on here. I guess truth's get deleted. We only deal in speculation that aligns with the correct narrative on here. If you don't have the correct narrative, you may be next! lol. sad sad. Back to the subject. I hope that Disney can recoup their business.

So their answer to wanting more people to come is... to spend money on an advertisement campaign as opposed to just lowering prices? So weird, it's not as if Disney needs to tell people it exists. If people aren't going to the parks, it's not because they need to realize they're a possibility, but because of any other factor (price vs offerings, health, money, foreigner not allowed in, etcetcetc).

I was rebutting the poster's insistance that it's merely "a very contagious cold", not insisting it myself.

Corey PSep 09, 2020

Wrong, a flu not a cold. 10 times as many killed, wrong again. The flu kills 40-60 thousand a year in the US. We don't have 400-600 thousand dead. Here's some stats to get you up to speed on death in the US. https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/fastats/leading-causes-of-death.htm

And when some adults are selfish little brats you have to ignore them.
