Former BoardingArea blogger and consumer advocate Christopher Elliott has an interesting piece on Money that asks the question whether you should feel guilty for taking advantage of Orlando travel deals in the wake of last week’s multiple and horrible Orlando tragedies. There’s been no price-cutting or “Disney on sale” emails yet, but experts say it’s just a matter of time. When they do come, should you feel guilty for booking one of these? What if you’re a family who can’t afford to go otherwise? Could it be viewed as a sign of solidarity with the city?
“It could be explained as a sign of solidarity with Orlando.” “Visitors have a desire to show their support and that is one way of doing this. Of course, things might change in the future and discounts may be a way to counteract the effects of the mass shooting incident on the decline in visitation.”
I could not get permission to re-publish the article here, but check it out in its entirety over at Money.
