Disney joined the chorus. It has just been announced that (OK, I’m going to be a little sacrilegious) Hurricane Coronavirus has landed and will close Walt Disney World from March 15 through the end of the month. Disney World is closed, or will be on Sunday.
It All Started Last Night
It all started last night. I was minding my own business sitting down to watch our Oklahoma City Thunder when there was the delay that changed the world. Who would have thought that one little basketball game in Oklahoma City, would take down the whole entertainment industry in just 35 minutes?
Yes, I’m serious. But that’s not important right now. Did you hear, DISNEY WORLD IS CLOSED!!!?
Let’s get back to Disney World
It was just a week-ish ago that I posted my thoughts about Coronavirus and Disney World. At that time, I wasn’t really worried. In fact I said everyone should “panic now and avoid the rush” or to “run in circles, scream and shout”. Wait. That’s not what I said.
What I said last week and what I said was it’s not time to panic, wash your hands often, avoid people that are Sneezy (that’s a dwarf right? I know…), and if you have a compromised immune system, be careful, very careful.
I didn’t expect things to spiral out of control so quickly. Curses Utah Jazz, YOU CLOSED DISNEY WORLD!!!!!
So for the next two weeks we have to find something to occupy our minds. What could that be?
The Next Two Weeks
So what can we do for the next two weeks while Disney World is closed (that’s really hard to write)?
- See how many hours of Disney+ we can watch
- Read every page of Dad’s Guide (even the out of date ones)
- Plan your next trip for when Disney World reopens (Destinations to Travel can help)
- Grab an issue of WDW Magazine an escape
Most important, let’s all stay at home as much as possible, wash our hands, avoid Sneezy and hopefully Hurricane Coronavirus will change course and go away. Hey, I can hope. COME BACK DISNEY WORLD!!!!
Dad’s Bottom Line
It’s all Rudy Gobert’s fault, but what’s done is done. By the end of March, Hurricane Coronavirus will have closed Walt Disney World for longer that all the other hurricanes combined in the last 50 years. Hopefully on April 1st (no jokes there, please), Disney World will open back up and Hurricane Coronavirus will be gone, gone, gone.
Please, OKC Thunder come back soon, I’m bored, oh, and Bob Chapek, PLEASE OPEN DISNEY WORLD AGAIN!!!!!!!
