  1. All this is great 😊. But we are out of state passholders with no chance of being able to visit 😢
    Fingers crossed 🤞 we can fly in September

  2. We have just had our November holiday cancelled by the travel company and as we live in England it is going to be almost impossible for us to take advantage of the offers for the passholders. Is there anything planned for those of us unable to travel to Florida through no reason of our own?
