And the COVID police strikes again. CDC guidelines are that just that – guidelines. There is NO actual reason to cancel trick or treating at the Fort. I live in NJ and our own Nazi Govenor has permitted it, so why not at WDW? And don’t tell me this is for “health” reasons. People are allowed to protest in the streets and riot, which I’m sure Disney, in all it’s woke-ness, supports. Just another reason to skip a WDW trip this year. Shameful.

I did not know that people went trick or treating at Fort Wilderness? Like the cabins or tents? People would just walk up to them and trick or treat? I knew about decorating golf carts or their campers.

What day is the golf cart parade?
