Changes That May Be Coming To Walt Disney World

Hey everyone! Today we are going to be talking about some of the changes that may be coming to Walt Disney World this year. It’s been a weird year for Disney, and as Disney plans to re-open in the coming weeks, there will be a lot of changes made to how the parks function. Universal and Seaworld have been open for a little while now, and I feel like it was smart of Disney to watch how their re-opening worked. Let’s get into our discussion of some of the changes that may be coming to Walt Disney World.

Increase In Virtual Lines

Disney introduces virtual queueing at its newest attraction

Disney isn’t a total stranger to virtual lines, and actually… it really worked well for them when Rise of the Resistance opened up. I personally was able to use the app to join a ‘boarding group’ for the ride and it was pretty nice not having to stand in a technically 5 hour line. But will this work for all major rides in Disney World? I can think of a few rides that this could be a really good change for! Slinky Dog, Flight of Passage, Space Mountain and more. I would gladly accept the virtual line change if Disney does decide to go this route.

Wearing A Face Mask Throughout The Park

Disney Introduces Cloth Face Masks and Donations for Families and ...

This will probably be a given when visiting the Parks this summer, if not year. This is the main number one reason why going to Disney during this time is a no for me. I don’t feel comfortable wearing a mask in Walmart for over 30 minutes. It restricts my breathing and is just super uncomfortable, so I barely go to Walmart due to that reason. Imagine being in a park for hours having to wear it? Woof.

Limited Amount of People

I think one of the most obvious things Disney will do is probably cap the amount of people that can come into the parks to a very small amount. This will probably be a route Disney takes since there are a lot of people wanting to come back.

Sanitizing Stations

Disneyland is closing because of coronavirus but Walt Disney World ...

Imagine you’ll be seeing a lot of these around the parks if you visit…

Character Meet and Greets?

You Should Not Miss Meet And Greet Of These Characters When You Go ...

I honestly don’t know how this is going to work, but I doubt Disneyworld will send out cast members with masks on. I just don’t think meet and greets will be a thing.

Sit In Dining?

33 Best (and Worst!) Disney World Restaurants - Disney Trippers

I just don’t know how Disney is going to do the whole dining thing. It would have to be seriously cut down, and buffets? Like is Chef Mickey’s even going to be a thing?? Are reservations going to be extremely hard to come by?

Social Distancing Markers

Social Distancing, Disney Edition (OC) Day 1: The Lion King. Stay ...

I feel like this is a given. Disney 100% is going to have markers everywhere to show where people can stand. Cast members will probably stationed so that this can be truly inforced as well.

Epcot Renovation

Epcot 'Reimagining' Details Announced - Disney Tourist Blog

My biggest fear from this whole thing is that the Epcot renovation is going to be completely messed up. I really was excited to see how this would all look, but unfortunately… I think a lot of cuts are going to be made to Epcot. *inserts extreme sad face*

What I’ve Been Loving Lately

Hi everyone! So as all of you pretty much know by now, I was on a very much needed 2 month vacation from the blog. I had been really worn out since January after going a full year without a single break, and finally in May I decided that needed to change. I thought it may only be for a few weeks, but that eventually turned into 2 months. A lot happened during this time, and if you missed that post where I pretty much explain everything I’ll link it here.

Just because I have been gone for a little while doesn’t mean I’ve been living under a rock. I’ve been enjoying other things, searching for things that I like, it just happened to be nothing book related. So I decided to share with you today what has really been keeping me grounded and happy during my little break. Let’s get right into it!

My Philosophy Skin Care Routine

I have been in love with my skin care routine lately. Wearing masks constantly when going out can really mess with your skin, especially in these hot summer months. I’ve been using the Philosophy Purity facial cleanser and also the eye cream and moisturizer. Absolutely life changing.

Spongebob Squarepants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated Game

Buy SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom - Rehydrated ...

This game is a life saver. I actually used to play this game on PS2 when it came out in like 2003 and ugh! I loved it! It was such a big part of my childhood, and it just was released again for the newer systems. I got this on my Nintendo Switch and I love it! It’s been a really great game for me and my brother to play together, and we get a lot of laughs out of it.

The Seven Deadly Sins (Netflix)

Seven Deadly Sins is the Anime You Didn't Know You Wanted to Watch

Ahhhhh! I discovered this show while I was on my little break, and I am in love!!! I am not a anime watcher what so ever, I mean seriously. I don’t watch anime at all… but this?? This is too good not to watch. It’s an amazing show, and I even am buying the manga slowly book by book to start reading this month. Diane is even currently my iPhone background. I love this show and I can’t wait for season 4 in October.

Apex Legends

Apex Legends - The Next Evolution of Battle Royale - Free on PS4 ...

I am in love with Apex Legends. It’s one of the best battle royale games out there, and I am just obsessed. I play on PS4 with some of my greatest friends I’ve met over the months I’ve been online nonstop. Would highly recommend if you’re looking to move on from Fortnite.

Hell’s Kitchen

Gordon Ramsay reveals his favorite Hell's Kitchen insults | EW.com

I’ve been obsessed with this show lately. I love Gordon Ramsey, and this show is a binge watcher for me.

Dystopian Books to Read During A Pandemic

Hello everyone! Happy Friday! I hope everyone is staying safe, healthy, and staying HOME!

Today’s post we are going to talk about some dystopian books that may distract you from the current dystopia we are currently living through. If you feel like coping with this whole situation by reading books where the settings are far worse than what is happening currently, then these books are for you. Personally, I am actually reading the hunger games now and wow… it sure is taking my mind off of a lot of situations right now.

Let’s just jump right into the list and talk about some of these dystopian books that will just really take your mind off of the current situation we are all in right now… or just make you worry even more lol.


(1) Dry – Neal & Jarrod Shusterman

Dry

Honestly, this book is pretty close to the most realistic thing that can happen out of all of these situations. It takes place in California and when we start the book, we immediately are made aware that due to a low raining season, the state and surrounding states are actually running low on water. Eventually most of California completely drys out, which leaves people with no water. Our main characters are led to do some pretty crazy stuff just to get a single drop of water. It’s intense, but it makes you think with global warming going on in this world, could this actually become a reality? Also, this book has led me to be a little more mindful of just how much water I use.

(2) The Hunger Games – Suzanne Collins

The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)

Although I have not read the series (I’m currently in the process of doing so though), I have watched the movies and good lord… I would hate to have to live in a world like this one. I can’t even imagine having to stand in a large group with other young adults/kids and have to be picked to go be put in some game, where I have to kill other kids, just so a bunch of old people can have fun with the entertainment part of it. Like what in the hell. I will give Collins mad props to coming up with this idea, but man is it dark.

(3) The Handmaids Tale – Margaret Atwood

The Handmaid's Tale (The Handmaid's Tale, #1)

Again… another series where I have to say to myself what the hell was this author thinking when writing it. I have not read this, but I basically know all of the storyline and what the whole concept is just from the countless of spoilers alone (thanks Twitter 🙂 ) But in all seriousness, this book is SCARY. I mean yes it is a dystopian, but I think it could be classified as horror for the general female population. Basically in this book to sum it all up, women are slaves to families who can’t make babies. We follow Offred who is basically forced to have sex with a man so him and his wife can have a family since the wife can’t produce children. I honestly cannot wait to read this because I am just dying to experience the amount of anger that comes with this book. It sounds like a horrible setting, but a wonderful dystopian read.

(4) The Divergent series – Veronica Roth

Divergent (Divergent, #1)

I don’t find this dystopian to be quite as scary as the previous three I have mentioned, but it’s still not a place I would enjoy living. Our story takes place in Chicago and we follow a girl named Beatrice who basically has to choose which of the five factions she would like to dedicate her life to. She wants to stay with her family, but also wants to be who she really is,but unfortunately can’t do both. I’ve heard okay-ish things about this series, but the first movie was pretty big when it came out a few years ago. The rest I heard nothing about, but hey you might like it. Ya never know unless you try it.

(5) The Darkest Minds – Alexandra Bracken

The Darkest Minds (The Darkest Minds, #1)

I have actually read this one, and this one is pretty unsettling as well, but to be honest I would love to have some of these powers. Obviously Ruby, our main character, has the best power of them all but the others are pretty cool too. I did enjoy the first book, and I don’t really know why I haven’t continued but I am sure I will eventually. It was a really good story, and left us with a really big cliffhanger, so I don’t know. Maybe I’ll get to it sometime this year. Haven’t watched the movie yet either which I am hoping to get to soon as well.


Well I hope you guys enjoyed my list and maybe find some comfort in these books while reading during your quarantine time. Let me know if you guys have read any of these and what you thought as well! Happy reading!
