Mobile October 2020 - Staying Positive?

Hi all, Iíd thought Iíd start a similar thread to the August one - sorry if this has been done before.

We were originally booked from August 12th - 22nd, 10 nights Aventura with indirect flights from Glasgow via Newark - these were cancelled in March by United

We then rebooked the same dates and hotel via BA from Gatwick - however we then noticed the news that BA have pulled out of Gatwick for the time being.

To be honest itís worked better for us, we managed to change to October. This time though we will be having an over night stop in Chicago and 6 nights in Orlando the back indirect via Miami.

With the money saved we managed to upgrade to the Hard Rock Hotel and still had extra money left from our original booking to book airport hotel, parking, a hotel in Chicago and annual travel insurance.

So now looking forward to a late October trip and staying hopeful everything will go ahead. Any one else staying positive?

October 18th for us for 14 nights. Staying offsite with a night at universal. Got our 14 day Disney tickets and universal tickets and hoping we go ahead. Appreciate it will be a different experience but we have been 6 times in 15 years and seen the changes that were non covid related and had the experiences eg fireworks parades etc before. We usually stick to a park a day anyway and all been at work/school for last 13 weeks as critical workers so though donít underestimate impact of covid have worked through the anxieties. Our youngest is now 11 and we had already agreed last year this would be our last Disney holiday as w3 so enjoy road trips now the kids are older. hoping for quieter parks like they used to be in October 15 years ago. Just waiting to see park availability on the 28th to start getting excited again

24th October for us, ten nights. Flying into Miami with BA but keeping our fingers crossed that all will be in place. We don't mind less parades/shows/masks/etc. We lost our May cruise so just a getaway to the sun would be amazing at this point!

1st for us. We were only doing Universal (AP holders) and may well skip HHN.

Staying in a villa, so own pool and space.

We're hopeful

Yep, going in October for two weeks, staying at endless summer surfside, paid for all tickets, going to HHN, will spend tons of time at universal as usual, but also reserved Busch gardens and SeaWorld days already, will try for Disney reservations in a week, willing to play it by ear and wear masks etc etc as required if we can go! Everything crossed 😊

October 24th for us, 3 weeks. It was looking positive but looking at the recent quite significant (and growing) spike in cases in Florida, including in Orange County, as well as the news of the reproductive rate being highest amongst people 30-40 - I'm now not so sure.

I think given the FL governor comes from the school of Trump he'll just keep opening up until it's too late.
