We're engaging in a robust discussion about how Disney has approached
the parks experience during Covid and how technology has changed, and
enhanced, the visit. How long are socially distanced lines? How good is
mask compliance? When is the best time to order lunch? And when might we
see a return of FastPass or Disneyland?
This podcast features senior editor Jamie Biesiada, who covers theme parks for Travel Weekly, and Disney expert Len Testa, the founder of TouringPlans.com and a co-author of "The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World." Rebecca Tobin, Travel Weekly's managing editor, is the host.
