All of Walt Disney World’s DVC properties (except Jambo House) and the Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground will open tomorrow, June 22nd.
Now Disney has announced dates for several of their non-DVC resorts.
The language on the Walt Disney World website now reads as follows:
“Update On Disney Resort Hotel Reopenings
On June 22, select Disney Deluxe Villa Resorts and Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground will reopen. These select Disney Deluxe Villa Resorts include:
- Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort
- Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge
- Copper Creek Villas & Cabins at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge
- Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas – Kidani Village
- Disney’s Beach Club Villas
- Disney’s BoardWalk Villas
- Disney’s Old Key West Resort
- Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows
- Disney’s Riviera Resort
- Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort
- The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort
As we open these hotels, we are taking a measured and deliberate approach to implement a number of health and safety measures based on guidance from various governmental authorities and health agencies.
In addition we currently plan to open the following Disney Resort hotels to booked Guests on the following dates.
Please note that given the fluidity of the current environment, these dates are subject to change and Guests’ reservations could still be modified to other Disney Resort hotels if needed.
|July 10||Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas – Jambo House, Disney’s Pop Century Resort, Disney’s Contemporary Resort|
|July 29||Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort|
|August 12||Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort and Disney’s Art of Animation Resort|
|August 24||Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resorts|
|September 21||Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa|
|October 1||Disney’s BoardWalk Resort|
|October 14||Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort|
Given the current situation, there are some Disney Resort hotels and other areas that are not, as of this time, being scheduled for reopening yet. We will continue to evaluate the situation and reopen more locations when the environment is right to do so.
While these plans may evolve, we will be monitoring the constantly changing health environment and its impact on the state of Florida as we find the right time to welcome back even more of our Guests.“
Some resorts notably left off the list are the regular Animal Kingdom Lodge rooms, Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, Port Orleans French Quarter and Riverside, and the All Star resorts.
If you are planning to stay at one of resorts that will not be open during your visit, Disney will contact you to move you to a different resort.
We are hopeful that this could include some pixie dust upgrades!
