Fastpass: physical distancing in the queue. It was so much nicer not being smashed together.
Standby: Cleaning rides 2-3 times.
Skip: Hand Sanitizer stations. (I preferred the hand sanitizer I brought.)


Water water everywhere....
Gondola rides by the Italy pavilion,
Boat rides around Animal Kingdom (apparently they did do this the 1st year or 2),
Add a walk through corridor to the main tank in The Living Sea

You're now a high flying executive (if you're not already). You can run Disney Parks, Resorts, or Cruise lines, your choice.

Fast pass: parks
Standby: resorts
Skip: Cruise lines (just not much experience there)
Not an executive, high flying or otherwise!

The best animal sidekick is a:
Raccoon
Reindeer
Parrot

Standby: Raccoon
Skip: Parrot

Ok, so not an executive. Do you perform on a cruise ship, at a resort (e.g. luau) or at a park (e.g. stilt walker)

Fast pass: Cruise ship (we know the guys from the Buckets - N - Boards group that has been performing on Disney cruise ships for the last 5 seasons or so, and they have a blast)
Standby: Park (although my thorough lack of grace makes "stilt walker" a longshot)
Skip: Resort

Having taken a trip this season and looking back would you:
Change nothing
Shorten the trip to 4-5 days
Cancel until things are normal

very interesting question.

Fastpass: Change nothing
Standby: cancel until things are normal
Skip: shorten the trip to 4 or 5 days

Maybe changed the hotel. We stayed at Contemporary for 1st time. Just not Disney enough. We were very close to canceling, but then thought, who knows what it will be like in the next year or so. With park reservation system, no guarantee you'd get to all 4 parks in 4 or 5 days.

Same question right back at you!

Fast pass: Shorten the trip
Standby: Cancel altogether (could easily flip these first two)
Skip: Change nothing

The payoff for putting up with the masks was small crowds and lots of ride time. Other than on maybe 3 of our 10 park days, that didn't pan out at all. Hollywood Studios and Magic Kingdom our wait times were actually longer than what we're used to seeing in September (excluding Labor Day weekend), and our first Epcot day was about the same. I'm glad that, for many, it was all good times, but for us, the "magic" was severely diminished. We are both quite alright with not having to put together another trip before we go in 2022.

Favorite parts of Hollywood Studios:
Star Wars
Toy Story Land
Tower of Terror/Rock-N-Roller coaster area (about the only "original" part left)

That order works for me.
Fastpass: Star Wars
Standby: Toy Story
Skip: T of T/Rock n Roller coaster

I would never skip ToT, but I do get bashed around on Rock n Roller. Disney needs smoother coasters.

Next themed restaurant (park or resort) - Greek, Polish or Russian food?

The shortened hours certainly played a part of crowds & wait times I'm so sorry. I don't think Disney is allowed to increase guest count yet. We're not looking to go until at least 2022 as well. (I say that now...)

Fast pass: Greek - love Greek food, and the country would make an awesome pavilion in World Showcase
Standby: Polish - had to research both Polish and Russian cuisine, and gave a slight edge to Poland
Skip: Russian - but I'd still like to try it!

Which area has the best music?
Main Street USA
Innoventions Area at Epcot
Discovery Island at Animal Kingdom

Fast pass: Ratatouille - exterior looked finished from the Skyliner
Standby: Tron
Skip: Space 220 - was wondering if this place was ever going to open before all this!

Current character situations that should become permanent:
Country Bears coming out on the deck over Bear Hall
Anastasia and Drizella appearing on the deck on the back of the castle
Merida riding Angus in the parade

Fastpass: Anastasia & Druzilla (highlighted for me how underutilized the Castle is)
Standby: Merida riding Angus
Skip: Country Bears

Side note - saw an article earlier that mentioned Space 220. More signage is up & some construction walls have been moved or removed.

Places to stay (no cost to you)

Poly bungalow over the water
Suite in new tower at Coronada Springs
Suite at the Riviera resort

Absolutely any of these would be fantastic!
Fast pass: Riviera Suite - took your advice and hit their quick service restaurant. Excellent croque monsieur!
Standby: Tower suite at Coronado
Skip: Bungalow at Poly - so hard to say "skip" to that one!


Songs that you enjoy the most when they get stuck in your head:
One Little Spark
Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow
It's a Small World

If you could change one thing about the queues, no matter how long, at Disney:

Completely shaded with an abundance of fans
Easy access to bathrooms, drinks, snacks
Accurate as possible, in line displays with how much longer the wait is
