I did think that if the situation is still dire in September I could cancel and lose my deposit (£300) get a refund of the other £2100 and just keep hold of all the funds and re-book last minute if things improve!
Iíd rather do that than risk paying my balance and having to wait months for a refund to be honest.

Due to be going in Sept, moved our trip from May so everything is paid for. I was also quite hopeful over the past few months but it's slowly dwindling away, think its highly unlikely that we will be able to go now! Everything is constantly changing so who knows!

well, just look at the news
FL has extended quarantine orders for Tri-state visitors until sept 5th
How likely will foreigner (us) be allowed to enter before every american is free to move about ? ... yeah, not a chance

now, Trump will use the situation in the ongoing showdown he has with EU (UK will not be treated differently) and that's part of his electoral "platform" so to speak.
So, reopening borders to us before election day (nov 3rd) is very unlikely
If Trump remains in office, there is little chance for him to speed up the process of reopening to US, there will be lengthy talks and negociations, for political and economical interests.
it Trump does not remain in office, Inauguration day is on Jan 20th. That's the date when he'll leave the office. here again, there is little chance that Trump will reopen borders to us, as it would be a sign a weakness he doesn't want to be remembered by

so, it's quite reasonable to consider that, we'll probably won't be able to enter the USA until, at least, early next year.

I may be wrong, I hope am I. But I really don't see how things could turn out otherwise (I mean, faster repoening)

I think you may well have hit the nail firmly on the head.

Our English friends are supposed to visit with us for the holidays and I see no chance of them actually being allowed to visit.

Not only that we are fully expecting fall to be worse with a resurgence of cases which doubly makes it unlikely sadly.

Due to go November 2020 and also donít see Trump opening the borders to us before the election. Just my hunch though and I hope Iím wrong as Iím desperate to go! We are only doing Universal and New York so no Disney!

Booked for Disney in October - was hopeful but not now! The fact that BA have now offered me the voucher makes me think they know its not happening - I donít think the borders will be open and the more I think about it, the less I want to go with all the restrictions!
Mask for a train journey today was bad enough. Let alone all day in Disney. Think Iím gonna take a chance for next year!

I had an email today. Someone who has the same one has copied it onto another thread - it basically says your trip to Disney is bound by lots of restrictions and in light of this I can now claim a voucher to the full value of my trip.

Iím rather surprised you havnt had the same one! I expect itís coming as youíre way before me...
