    It's summertime.  By this time in the year, most of us would have several (if not dozens) of park trips under our belts.

    But, the Coronavirus has changed the world and the parks are now just starting to open.

    We'll talk with Orlando-based Journalist Seth Kubersky about what it was like to be back at Universal Orlando post-Covid.

    We'll also give you the news about what Cedar Fair parks will be opening over the next few weeks.  We'll also get into a discussion about whether a famous Disney attraction should change its theme as a show of respect.
