I'm not sure I'd use a day's reservation for AK without Safari. 😪
Same - its such a wide open space too - maybe someone could explain (if indeed it's not going to be open) the dynamics involved that might prohibit it from opening

You would think that with masks, you would be fine, and it should not be that hard to stagger seating on the vehicle

    yeah it seems one party per row and every other row. Masks required on during safari would work.

    Probably just that it's too expensive to run a ride that requires a CM per vehicle with limited capacity

    I just looked on the website at July 15th and KS has posted hours. Not sure that means anything at this point. CoP and HoP at MK for instance, do not have posted hours on July 15th. I think that is why we are assuming anything with posted hours may in fact be running when the parks open back up. Just supposition mind you.
    I’m just wondering where the speculation started that KS would be closed. I’ve been following this thread pretty closely and didn’t see anything. Even went back a couple of pages to double check. What did I miss?

    Is that speculation or confirmed?

    And does anyone know if the AP preview will be for all APs or just the ones who aren't blocked out per usual scheduling?
    Speculation, I was replying to the callback data that says they'll be recalled by 6/28 and mathing it from there...

    No one knows who the AP Previews will be for. The main questions there I think are which APs qualify and what about APs that expired during the extension? Disney has not given data on that either. If they want to limit it they could always do what they did with SWGE and say Platinum and higher APs only.

    It might have more to do with Animal Safety than anything else. Wasn't AK the first to ban plastic straws and shoot, what else was it? Cup lids or something? They might think people's masks might fly off and get eaten by the animals or something, I dunno, just a thought.

    See below. I don't think there's any basis though.
    I am a little disappointed that CoP and the Safari is closed but this attraction list is perfectly acceptable to me. Especially if the possibility of more operating than listed here by late August...

    And I just gotta say...

    The water parks are still listed in the attractions list.

    Ok - if that's the case it's truly sad -
    I still remember the good old days when the attraction first opened and the CMs (safari drivers) were from Africa (at least the majority, I believe)
    The pride in their voices as they spoke about the animals - does anyone know why (and exactly when) that changed ?

    Savi's is now gone too. I hope we cans still do it! I told my daughter about it the other day and she seems to have calmed down about it now. She originally said we should just cancel out trip!
    Me too! It was my great-nephew that was going to do both. He's a huge SW fan. I've already been to SW:GE at DLR. This was to be his first time seeing the land. I sure hope we can still get him into Savi's and DD.
