    I have to laugh at your treaty comment. That is too funny.
    I'm so glad she's doing fine!

    Honestly, that's how I feel. I'm happy to live and let live, just don't cross the line - like eating my food or climbing in my ear.

    Back to the thread topic.

    I don't know if anyone here uses the app Nextdoor. It's like FaceBook for neighborhoods. I live just a few miles away from the parks. There are TONS of Disney fans in the neighborhood. When Disney announced its closing, someone posted a link to the article. Soon, many of us fans began responding. One of the ladies who responded said she follows many Disney message boards online and through FaceBook. She said there is one group in particular where many went to Disney on that last weekend as a last "Hoorah". They're all now testing positive for the virus.

    Of course this is hearsay, so take it as you may. But, I can't help but wonder if there will be repercussion from this. People have attacked Disney for much less.

    I would hope not. It was their personal decision, but with the craziness in this world, who knows.

    I'm sure there are thousands that are fine. I'm just sharing someone else's personal hearsay story.

    Not really impossible but difficult to trace. If you have a large cluster of people from different parts of the nation and the one commonality is they were all at Disneyworld on that day and in a similar time frame; you could point to the infection spreading from there. The difficulty now is there are so many cases that a lot of Local and State governments are beyond tracing and just saying it’s everywhere.

    Agreed. What's the cause and effect? If the story is true and they all had it, is it because they were together at WDW? If they're friends, what other common events did they share where they could have picked it up? Maybe one of them picked it up somewhere, and then shared it with the friends.

    Since we were there at WDW that final weekend before closing, I don't like to hear stories of people who were contagious walking around the parks - but we knew in mid-March, the risk was getting greater every day. Looking back, we probably should have left sooner than we did - but the week before WDW closed was unprecedented with how quickly things were changing.

    Yep. At the beginning of that week I thought they "might" close. By the end, I suspected the closure would be much longer than a couple of weeks.

    They could have gotten it from the airport, or other people, you would never know, and couldn't prove it was directly disney. Likely, sure. But prove it was directly them. Nope.

    I'm watching a YouTube video and the guy is reading a letter sent out to all Disney employees. It's primarily regarding the new pay structure and in that letter is states Bob Iger is forgoing 100% of his salary at this time. That's very admirable, to say the least.

    That depends how he defines, "Salary." And, "at this time." These people don't make it to the top cuz they are nice. There is a self-serving deal behind each decision.

    I didn't feel a need to nitpick at his generosity. I did read that "at this time" at least means the remainder of 2020.

    Yes but in the interest of full disclosure (which Disney did not do in the press release or email) his salary is only a small portion of his total compensation. And he’s not donating his salary to a charitable cause. He is forgoing it to help the multi billion dollar company.

    It’s hard for me to relate to this and have a positive spin on it since I’m 43 And haven’t made over 50 million a year in 43 years. Unlike Mr Iger who has.

    I read the press release and said "pffft" as well. As already mentioned, the "salary" he is forgoing is a very small portion of his actual compensation. He is still gladly accepting the bulk of the millions. Everyone needs to accept this for what it is......just a PR move which is typical in the big corporate world. Now, I would have been impressed had he said I am forgoing my compensation package during this crisis.

    Yes, but it's still not nothing. He didn't have to do what he did. It's still a nice gesture that will help people who work for the company and make far, far less.
