5 days ago in "The Walt Disney Company"

TUI, Europe's largest tour operator, has today cancelled all vacations to Florida from the United Kingdom and Ireland until December.

In a statement TUI said, "The decision has been made following new health and safety measures implemented at Walt Disney World to ensure the safety of its guests. These changes would significantly impact the holiday experience for many TUI customers who plan their magical and often once in a lifetime Florida holiday.”

Further the company said that it, "commits to only operating holidays where it’s able to guarantee an enjoyable, relaxing and safe holiday without significant changes at their destination."

Customers are being offered options to delay their trip, receive a refund or changing their destination.

When the parks reopen, Disney will be requiring face masks, temperature screening, social distancing, and significantly reduced operating hours and entertainment.
