Indeed they do. And with the capacity reduction on the MCO route due to:
(A) the A350's having fewer seats than the 747
(B) Norwegian pulling out of TATL flying
(C) the demise of Thomas Cook
there is an opportunity to make money. There is a lot of pent-up demand for visiting The Mouse when the FCO allow travel & Mr Biden opens up the US border.
BA have crammed in 3-4-3 on the 777-200 leisure configuration, so it's not as though Virgin would not be doing something their competitor hasn't.
I can see fares rising on the MCO route too - people on another forum are already complaining about the prices they are seeing for late this year / packages for next year. As things stand it'll just be IAG & Virgin flying from London & Manchester direct to MCO.
