Our state is still pretty much on lockdown, although our "PAUSE" act ends on Friday. We are now starting to slowly open up by region (only if the region meets 7 different criteria) and by phase. Because our region currently meets those criteria, we can start Phase 1 reopening, which is mainly construction, manufacturing, landscaping, some retail, etc. I believe things like hair salons and our wineries/breweries (huge part of the local economy) are Phase 2 or 3. I believe each phase lasts at least 2 weeks. So at least it's something!Hi!
I just wanted to take some time to ask how you are all doing.
Did anyone have to cancel plans?
On our side, as time goes by, I’m feeling our chances of doing the trip are pretty slim.
My friends also seem turned off by the idea that WDW/the cruise experience might be drastically changed with the implementation of new sanitary rules.
I’m in a « glass half full » place. I’ve said it many times but I’d cruise in a hazmat suit if I have to. I’d rather have a different cruise than no cruise at all.
I have been working from home since March and will continue to do so until at least June 1. DH works in water so is considered essential and still goes in everyday. Good news-our doggy daycare reopens next week and I'm very excited for that. My pup hasn't been alone more than a few hours in months and needs the playtime!
Vacations are just on hold. I am coming to terms with the fact that WDW will most likely not be happening this Fall. Even if it's open, I can't see us going if the experience will be vastly different. I don't know if it will ever be the same, but I know it will eventually get better. So we might just wait for that time. We do have two out of state weddings in September on back-to-back weekends that we will attend as long as they still happen. I do plan on traveling for Christmas as well.
And honestly, I'm very interested to see how Carnival handles their return to cruising, especially if it happens in August. I know they have a lot of eyes on them since they're the only ones that have announced any date of return. I sincerely hope it goes well.
