    This will be a panel I'm sure.

    This is surely going to send shockwaves through the So Cal Disney community. I'm sure all the Disney theme park youtubers are freaking out right now as well.

    There will be something in place of the annual passport. They're talking about "membership" options. Which I'm sure isn't going to be as cut and dry as the one they've had for decades.

    Fewer people for @Padme501st and I to deal with at GE next year. It'll be nice to not have to fight that family of four for the Falcon cockpit seat.

    Very true. I wonder if D23 gold members will be a way to get those Disneyland memberships, in which case we are set since I’m a member

    Typically I let my D23 membership lapse this year but I can always renew if it means benefits at Disneyland next year :D

    Costume College, which is always the last weekend in July, was just cancelled for 2021. It's not as big as the bigger comic-cons, but it is a big convention. It is mostly run by volunteers though, so I guess that makes it easier for them to cancel before they have put too many hours into it, compared to companies that are desperate to get revenue from cons again.

    My optimism for cons in the fall has waned.

    Any day now we're going to start hearing about cancellations left and right for events in the spring time, many of which are the re-scheduled events from spring time of last year. Which will be interesting to see if a lot get postponed again or outright cancelled.

    And then not long from now we'll start hearing about all the summer cancellations/postponements.

    Beyond that is still too far out to tell. But it's doubtful that any kind of big event will be allowed, let alone a convention.

    That's what it seems like. Apparently it's been decided. I guess they just haven't made an official announcement yet.

    On second thought, there are reports circulating now that the initial claim is not true. I guess we'll have to wait and see what comes of it.

    The Japanese government has denied that they are planning a cancellation. I would guess that they do have a plan to cancel it, but it might still be a plan B or plan C or something like that.
