  1. With 2020 how it has gone with Covid, do you see shutting down at all? We are hoping to be there 22 and 23 of December. Please help us to be able to successfully plan a fabulous quick trip! Thank you in advance!

  2. Where did you see this calendar? The park pass system and calendar on WDW website still has magic Kingdom 8-8 in Dec 9,10th.
