Ask Will Ropp about his favorite vacation spot and he’ll answer without hesitation: Walt Disney World. “I've been going there since I was a kid and have had some of my favorite family and childhood memories there,” said the Los Angeles-based actor, who’s one of the stars of “The Fallout” (HBO Max), which won three awards at the South by Southwest Film Festival. “When I was 12, I went on a trip with my mom to Disney World. Her health was failing and it ended up being the last trip we would take together. And in that way, it was both the best and worst (vacation). I really treasure that trip. That might be why I have such a strong attachment to (Disney World).” Ropp stays in touch with his fans on Instagram ( and Twitter (

Q: What kind of traveling have you been doing during this pandemic?

A: It's been a difficult pandemic, but as things have started to come back, it's been nice to be able to travel more. Since things have opened up, I've been fortunate enough to go on some fun trips. I love to ski and was able to go to Winter Park, Colorado.

Q: If you had to cancel travel plans due to the COVID-19 outbreak, where were they to?

A: This last Christmas, I had to cancel plans to see my family and ended up staying in L.A. Thankfully, I was able to quarantine with a few great friends, so it wasn't too lonely.

Q: What untapped destination should people know about?


A: I have a buddy who has a cabin in Sault Ste. Marie in northern Michigan, which is a really cool old place. It's the (third) oldest city in the United States (and the oldest city in Michigan).

Q: What was the first trip you took as a child?

A: Probably to see my grandparents in Jacksonville, Florida. My grandma makes an amazing turkey tetrazzini. I have no doubt I loved it even as a baby.

Q: What's the most important thing you've learned from your travels?
