Claire and I heard about the pandemic on the news. It was starting to appear in major cities around the US and there were isolated cases. Claire and I had purchased Disney Florida resident passes and decided we should try to make the most of them before Disney closed.
My grandfather gifted us a stay at the Animal Kingdom Lodge resort and Claire and I made the 2-hour drive over to Disney.

If Claire and I couldn’t travel around the world due to the pandemic, we would bring the world to us. We wandered around Epcot and had some adventures.
A Galaxy Far Away….
Claire and I waited forever in line for this ride. You pilot the Millenium Falcon with a crew of fellow people you waited in line with. Claire and I weren’t a big enough group on our own, so we were paired up with a family. The experience, while immersive and very promising, turned out to be a bit of a dud if you didn’t have a group to fill out the cockpit. The family we were paired with had 2 kids who didn’t steer and 2 parents that just took photos, so much of the ride was characters gently suggesting we stop crashing into things and steer the ship instead.
Claire and I will have to go back another time with a full crew and do it right.
