Thank you! We are not going for a couple months, just trying to get the details in order.

Just Uber.

Depending on the demand of when you're there, the taxi might be able to wait. Testing has been way down lately, and recently that site has been a walk-up.

If you use the maingate testing site, is there somewhere to pick up a taxi afterwards? I won't have a car. Thank you.

I have twice now. Show up early, and you wait in line outside of your car. No eating or drinking cause ya know covid testing site, people most definitely have covid. No covid distancing markers but the cones that make up the line are six feet apart. Last time I went they had two separate lines one for group teating and another for single testing. Single testing line went a lot faster. You need to make an account to get tested and get your results but testing is free. Results within 30 to 45 minutes Lovely view of the backside of Everest

Central Floridian here! When you donate via One Blood, the antibody test results are sent to you in 48 hours. And yes, mine was negative!

I‘ll just assume this was a joke post or written after consuming copious amounts of alcohol.

I can't agree with your fantasy world reality.

Make sure you bring your towel.

You can. We need to focus on real issues like teenagers being asked to step a few feet away from their parents at Walt Disney World.

I'm still scratching my head. Do performers get the test and then wait a week before going on stage?

Those who are actually sick must really burn you up then....
