  1. I think Universal have got it right. Disney don’t appear to want any one to go. Glad you’re having a good time. Have a drink in Margaritaville for me.

  2. We’re out of state (Georgia) and we’re in Moe’s Tavern at Universal now. Not bad here at all. Lots of hand sanitizing and distancing, but a great day in the parks!

  3. Noting the daily increase in C19 cases in Florida do you think they’ve opened too soon ? I can see everything shutting down again. It could be down to increase testing but regardless it is concerning.the asymtompatic can still unwittingly pass to the vulnerable.

    Kenny, do you think there is no chance of international and out of state visitors this year ?
