Deja vu Disney

Does anyone else feel this situation has come back with a vengeance?

We was due to go this October and had to push it back to feb21

The news coming out of Disney is just putting us off yet again even if we can get out there.

Il make no lie in this trip is all thatís kept me focused since rebooking in August itís been a goal and a hope.

Iím thinking vh will cancel yet again if they feel the need but our reality is our next trip wonít be possible until October 22
Which feels like a lifetime away indeed

Whatís everyoneís current thoughts ?

Our booking (Christmas) still hasnít been cancelled, though Iím aware we probably wonít go.

When this all kicked off, we were very smug with our December booking - Ďitíll have calmed down by thení. Lol.

When it does cancel, I think weíre going to wait til things settle down a bit before rebooking to avoid the heartbreak of all this uncertainty. Probably 2022 for us too.

I have a significant birthday in 2021, so whilst missing out this year is a bit of a downer, nothing like missing next year would be. I'd expect to have flights and accom booked by now, not booked either. Still hopeful, but it is hope and not expectation.
We're headed where some experts who cited the 1918 Pandemic said we'd go, which was that things would get worse around now, then provided we see a decent improvement next spring, we might be ok for next summer, with the real "back to normal being 2022.

If it pans out this way, it does make next summer possible but questionable, but then the CM job cuts make me wonder if it's still worth it at all.

Think about why holidays are being cancelled. People are dying and losing their jobs every day. So if I can't go again next year then so be it. I'll be a bit sad but I'm grateful I'm alive and still have a job.

Please donít take this the wrong way but I honestly think February was a bit of a pipe dream anyway. Iím booked for September and hopeful that it will happen but also realistic enough to be prepared that it might not. Like you having the trip to look forward to is keeping me going but if I have to move it thereís not much I can do. With our September 2020 trip we made the decision back in March and I think that made it easier to deal with.

Iím not saying youíre wrong, but this is a mean-spirited thing to comment on a forum dedicated to people talking about their holiday plans.

Weíre not waltzing into an NHS COVID ward and telling people weíre upset about our holidays. This is an appropriate place to express a bit of sadness about missing Disney.

Do we have to add an addendum to every post to say weíre sorry about all the death? Come on.

Iíve been on the end of many a derogatory comment and criticism from this poster. However, life is too short to hold grudges & she makes some good contributions to the forum...And, to be fair to the poster on this occasion , Iím not sure her post came across as intended as she has (unlike myself admittedly) always remained very upbeat and positive about both her cancelled 2020 trip and rescheduled 2021 trip.

We want to go in October 2021 as it is a special occasion for us. I keep looking around but at the moment, I wouldn't risk booking anything even though in theory the worst is that I could lose a deposit.

I certainly wouldn't be booking anything with Virgin at the moment as I fear for their future.

Given the occasion, I also wouldn't want to be paying our all that money for half an experience and would rather wait for a normal holiday in the future. The Disney hotels are so overpriced at the moment for very little in the way of benefits, I'm sad to say it just isn't worthwhile at the moment.

Hi everyone,

For a while now I have been thinking about getting out some of those many videos of past and brilliant holidays, and just refreshing the memory of what the Old Normal was actually like.

For many posters on here the news of what the Present Normal is looking like (should we ever be able to access it), the present costs, the continual revision of restrictions, the redundances and potential further impending downgrades will generate a personal self assessment of the worth of planning to go.

Planning should be a joy in itself. But the continual reporting of "kicking the can down the road" appears to be what is grating with many on here.

By all means plan the trip, then put it on the shelf, come back to it when / if the Virus fog clears.

And, in the meantime enjoy those videos, photos and memories again. Finally, if you have never yet been, you will not miss what you have never had.

Enjoy.
