As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to rage not just in America but internationally, Disney has had to adapt to keep Guests safe. This has resulted in attraction and show changes as well as the closure of entire parks like Disneyland and now Hong Kong.

Mask and vaccination policies are also a big talking point among Disney guests and fans, as they seem to be constantly changing. Customers also continue to complain about changes to Disneyland and Walt Disney World’s reservation systems in the form of the controversial Genie+. Many guests simply begin to notice that the problems are starting to pile up. A recent post on Reddit highlighted a few guests’ concerns about the supply chain and shortages currently affecting the entire country. See u/AwesomeBlassom’s post below:

A storage supply problem. Even my local Asian grocery store is making waves for emptying shelves and freezers.

The store in question here is located in the EPCOT Global Storefront, a space dedicated to providing authentic shopping and culinary entertainment experiences to customers from different countries and cultures. Due to the current supply chain crisis, getting some goods and even food to Orlando, Flroida Park has proven difficult.
