Here’s an idea: REHIRE the 30,000+ employees who made the magic for DECADES.
Why should guests pay full price for a less than magical experience?
Let’s start with entertainment which has been decimated.

Don’t bother wasting your hard earned money Disney is not worth the money attractions are closed food and drinks. Very hard to get much aggravation from employee’s that doesn’t want to be there florida covid-19 and varraents very high full of spring breakers not wearing masks and they are not giving price breaks for most attractions and food closures

I was in The Magic Kingdom today and all the cast members were upbeat, we made sure we thanked everyone we came in contact with. I will say it’s not worth the money now. My fear is what will Disney keep from covid cutbacks.
