Disney Resorts prepare to welcome Guests starting tomorrow, June 22nd, and this is also the date that the Disney World reservation system will become available to select Guests. All Disney Resort Guests must read a very important acknowledgment before their stay at a Disney Resort.
Select Disney Resorts
There has been much news regarding which Disney Resorts would welcome Guests during this limited reopening phase. Yesterday we shared that Cast Members confirmed that only DVC Resorts will reopen for the remainder of 2020.
Do any of you begin your day stalking the My Disney Experience app for signs of the new reservation system? Maybe that is just me. This morning I was greeted with this COVID-19 warning on the initial page of the My Disney Experience App.
The COVID-19 Warning States (emphasis added):
“We have taken enhanced health and safety measures- for you, our other Guests and Cast Members. You must follow all posted instructions while visiting Walt Disney World Resort.“
“An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and Guests with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable.”
“By visiting Walt Disney World you voluntarily assume risks related to exposure to COVID-19.”
All Guests who will be staying at one of the Disney Resorts must read a Health Acknowledgement prior to their arrival at their Disney Resort.
This Health Acknowledgement is featured just below the COVID-19 warning on the main screen of the My Disney Experience App. This includes possible restrictions set in place by the state of Florida. Read more about this HERE.
Resort Guests are to Read and Acknowledge this prior to their stay (emphasis added):
“Please make sure that you have reviewed any advisories or restrictions that may be in place for travel to Florida. Visit floridahealthcovid19.gov for information.”
- By entering Walt Disney World Resort, you are confirming that you and all persons in your party are not experiencing the following symptoms of COVID-19 including:
- Fever or chills
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

- Congestion or runny nose
- Nausea or vomiting
- You have not been in contact with someone with confirmed or suspected COVID-19 symptoms without complete a 14-day quarantine.
- You are not under any self-quarantine orders
“Guests who cannot confirms all of the above criteria MUST NOT enter Walt Disney World Resort.”
What This Means
In an effort to keep everyone safe, if Guests are unable to confirm the above criteria than they are to reschedule or cancel their Resort stay at (407)W-DISNEY or (407)934-7639.
Vacation Club members may call (800)800-9800. We have shared that Guests may cancel or reschedule Disney Resort reservations up to the day of arrival with fees being waived. Read more about that HERE.
