Toyko - May people

Those that have Tokyo Disney booked for May, how do we feel now about things?

I guess i'm still resigned to not going and waiting for a refund, but it does look like things are starting to open up again there?

What I think will happen is even if they are recovering by then, we'll be on our way to our peak and barred from most countries?

Just to let you know how things are over there boss is stuck in Tokyo (though happy to be so as here in France we are already on day 6 of lockdown)

He say life is going on as normal - There are less people around and on trains etc but life is continuing. So far they seem to have a good grip on it.

It would not surprise me if they dont stop visitors though. Hong Kong has imposed a 14 day quarantine on everybody entering the country and I think that is the right thing to do as the infections are due to people coming from elsewhere rather than local ones.

I think Japan has a 14 day isolation rule for uk visitors at present too. I could be wrong though.

Sadly I think Im starting slowly to accept we are not going. I cancelled all our hotels on Friday night. Had a good cry BA have said we can have a voucher for the flights but Im reluctant to take it just in case they go under, which I know is selfish but I would lose nearly 1500.

So for now Im keeping hold of our flights (just in case!) but I honestly dont think Japan would let us in, or they would require the 14 day self isolation, which obviously we cant do.

To be honest though even If we could go I dont think I could leave my family right now in the middle of all this, if something happened to one of them and I was a thousand miles away, Id never forgive myself, it just doesnt seem right.

Such a sad situation isnt it.

Keep us updated and what you decide to do xx

I think you are right about the 2 week quarantine. Might well still be in place then.

As it stands, nothing i've booked is currently refundable. Also not wanting the BA voucher which could ultimately be useless, not to mention the fact that insurance doesn't cover rebooked travel.

Will have to wait closer to the time for options.

We were due to go in April, so our flight is already cancelled. BA are only offering a voucher online and when we called they said that they wont refund until 72 hours before the flight was due to leave 😡

We're still waiting and seeing, I think if anything it will be the situation over here that will force our hand, rather than over there.

We were due to go on the 3rd May. I've booked through Expedia, so managed to cancel all but one Hotel who will refund me once I can speak to Expedia.
My flights are more difficult, JAL Man to Haneda via Helsinki & it's still flying. I don't want a voucher I want my money back. Over 3200.

Expedia are a nightmare to contact at the minute.

Tickets etc via Klook & they're being difficult also. Keep asking me for proof that my flight is cancelled, which it isn't. But FCO says we can't go. They just keep repeating themselves.
