Universal to remain closed through at least April 19, Disney expected to also remain closed beyond previously announced dates

Mar 24, 2020 in "The Walt Disney Company"

Universal Studios Orlando has confirmed that its theme parks in Central Florida will remain closed through April 19 2020.

Walt Disney World is currently confirmed to be closed through to the end of the month, with no further information yet announced for plans beyond that.

According to those familiar with the situation, Cast Members are not yet being scheduled for the start of April 2020, suggesting they are still considering their operational plans.

Based on the escalating situation with coronavirus worldwide, it would seem next to impossible for Walt Disney World to open at the start of April.

I'm afraid what it's going to look like in a few days due to the amount of people traveling for Thanksgiving.

I will triple check my paperwork, but was not mentioned to me at any time I recall. I had no plans to take them as I've heard mixed results on those doing the tests anyway so it could've not been in my memory because I didn't plan to do it. I have 4 copies as they added to the trial each time I went in. So I'll go through one soon for you. Thanks! I would have missed it.

There's something about Dr. Fauci which makes me want to put my complete confidence in him... I see it now. It's the mask. He's wearing two of them.

(Often misplaced) optimism has helped me get through these last 8 months. :)

A few people here have been part of the trials. @helenabear or @Disney Experience can probably answer this question for both the Moderna and Pfizer trials.

I forget what she said but she goes back in February to see if she’s still immune I believe.

She did not change her habits (which were Uber careful in the first place) because she doesn’t know how long the efficacy lasts - so she’s acting as though she never had the vaccine. I know not everyone would be that responsible though.

I’m not sure- she did it so she could donate plasma.
