Disney has Temporarily Closed… What does this mean for your travel plans?

by Jamie Rumph

It’s a strange time at Disney World and really all across the nation and world as Disney World, Disneyland and Disney Cruise line all temporality close.

Anxieties are high and we’re all concerned for the unknown.  I am no different but I am optimistic that everything is as it should be and all will be back to normal soon.

I’m positive that the closing of Disney World, Disneyland, Disney Cruise Line and the like is the right decision.  Does it feel good?  Oh gosh, no not at all.  I’ve cried quite a few times through it as I continue to cancel and rebook clients’ vacations.

Uncertainty is hard.

But I know that there are people in this world smarter than me that are making decisions to protect us all and I’m positive in the long run this will be for the best.  My minute by minute mantra is “this too shall pass”.  Hard times are HARD!  But they make the good times even better.

Hugs to each of you.  I hope we can all enjoy the hidden blessings of this time to slow down and be extra kind to one another!  If your neighbor needs a roll of toilet paper and you have extra, please share!  🙂  But in all seriousness, hang tight, this too shall pass.

NOTE:  IF you’re traveling with Love of the Magic Vacations to Disney or anywhere else, your reservation is being taken care of and we will contact you with information as soon as possible.
