Don't want this thread become a debate since we have other thread.

Just want to know other parents decisions.

Might be not exactly Disney, might be other part of US

Low risk, IMO.

My neighbour is going (family of 4) and has no plan on cancelling. It should be fine.

I have been to Disney on March Break. I wouldn't go because it is Disney....on March Break. Too many people. Parks close when they get to capacity. Nope.

I'd still go.

I've got a trip to Honalulu and a 10 day cruise from there booked in April. Still going. Bringing my 2 kids, age 3 and 1. The risk is low.

Speaking of Disneyworld, if you ever have a trip to Europe coming up, might be worth checking out Disneyland Paris. I know it's not as big as the one in Florida and has maybe less attractions, but you can play around with the different countries you are supposedly from and you will get different prices. I got 35% off my entire trip for booking on the French website and paid $930 for 3 days admission to the parks and 2 nights stay on site. I believe something comparable in Disneyworld was around $2000 last time I checked.

I wouldn't change my plans to Orlando based on fears of the Coronavirus. It's not just a low risk, it's an extremely low risk.

I would love to hear how you were able to downgrade the risk from ‘Low’ to ‘EXTREMELY Low’ for Orlando.
How did you determine this? Neutral Face

Another poster mentioned it's a low risk. I merely said it's not low, it's extremely low.

Take a look at our current mappings for the infections. North America is currently doing very well and many other countries are being protective by quarantining and such. While we will undoubtedly see more cases in North American it's not nearly as bad as people make it out to be. Follow basic personal hygiene - that's what is needed.

Been to both. Paris one is much smaller than Orlando one. I would recommend to save money for Orlando.

The person who uses the shopping cart before you might be sick. You can get germs from anything you and other people touch.

You have every right to take all precautions for your kids.
Though I feel the risk is low, especially when it's a direct from YYZ, the decision is all yours alone.

I dont see how the risk of contraction is greater in Orlando vs Markham (op's place of residence).
What would you do if you stayed in Markham over the March break?
Sending Your child to camp / daycare is much more risky than an airplane ride.

Go, have a blast !!

I was at disney land at christmas.....omg the horror of it all its like being stuck shopping on christmas eve and there is only one mall for the whole world.

They say the best day is superbowl.

Disney has no lines and you each carry a bottle of hand sanitizer. GAME ON!

Hell you could fly there on friday return on sunday and do all disney in weekend with no lines that would normally take a week! Hey kids...were not just going to disney land but were going to experience it euro disney style.

Just to be safe remember to park close to the exit!



I'd go but i just booked a cruise....some crazy deals right now!!! LOL
