Though travel might be “on the verge of a booming comeback,” as Insider previously reported, not everyone is rushing back to Disney theme parks.
Specifically, those who haven’t traveled since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic are unlikely to visit a Disney destination this year, according to a new Insider poll.
Insider’s survey was done through SurveyMonkey among 1,086 respondents, with a 3% margin of error. It ran on May 13, 2021.
Survey participants were asked, “Would you visit a Disney theme park this year?”, and 1,079 participants answered the question.
Of that group, 356 people said they haven’t traveled at all since COVID-19 emerged. Another 211 respondents said they haven’t traveled “all that much” in the past year.
- Approximately 32% of participants (67 people) who haven’t traveled much recently said they “probably would not” visit a Disney park this year.
- Roughly 29% of respondents (103 people) of those who said they haven’t traveled at all said the same.
- Another 13% of respondents (28 people) who haven’t traveled much said they “definitely would not” visit this year.
- The same went for 34.5% of participants (123 people) who said they haven’t traveled since the pandemic started.
As opposed to the 321 non-travelers who said they “probably” or “definitely” wouldn’t visit, only 179 people who traveled during the pandemic said they likely wouldn’t take a Disney vacation this year.
That’s likely because 333 of respondents who said they’ve traveled in some way since last year said they “probably would” or “definitely would” visit a Disney park this year.
COVID-19 concerns are still high among Disney fans, and parents are especially torn on whether or not now is the time to visit. But as it turns out, money is one of the biggest factors considered when talking about Disney vacations.
Insider’s recent poll found that people who make under $75,000 per year are most eager to visit Disney theme parks, but that hundreds of Americans also say they won’t consider visiting one this year because they think it’s too expensive.
