More Disney resorts could potentially be opening up to Guests in the coming months. Take a look.
The complete list of resorts opening on June 22nd is:
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 VillasDisney’s BoardWalk Villas
Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground
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 & Spa
We were told by several phone Cast Members that these would be the only Disney World Resorts opening for the entire year!
As we (and Disney) have stated numerous times, “this is a very fluid situation.” Sometimes things change by the day or even hour. What may be true one day may not be true the next.
With that said, we have recently heard of a rumor that Disney may consider opening some, but not all, of their other Walt Disney World Resorts between July and October.
The rumored reopening dates are:
July 10th for Jambo House DVC villas (but not regular rooms), Disney’s Pop Century Resort, and Disney’s Contemporary Resort. This fits in line with the Cast Members being called back to work for housekeeping at these resorts.
July 29th for Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort
August 12th for Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort and Disney’s Art of Animation Resort
August 24th for Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resorts
September 21st for Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa
October 1st for Disney’s BoardWalk Resort
October 14th for Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort
This way Disney could stagger the resort openings to plan for gradually increasing crowds through the fall.
It would mean that aside from DVC rooms and Fort Wilderness they would have 5 deluxe resorts, 2 moderate resorts, and 2 value resorts open by mid October.
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.
Of course with everything at Disney World during this time, this is subject to change. They may consolidate or open more resorts depending on the public health situation and guest demand.
We understand information is changing constantly. Please remember, this is not confirmed by Disney. Hopefully they will share more information regarding the status of resort reopenings soon, but in the meantime, use this information however you like.
We will try our best to keep you updated as we hear more rumors and confirmed information regarding the phased opening of Walt Disney World Resort.
