On Sunday, we released a list of the 10 Disney World resorts that are scheduled to reopen between mid-July and mid-October. Well, now that list has dropped down to 9.
According to the Disney website, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge Jambo House DVC villas will NOT reopen on July 10th. No new date has been given.
Remember that Fort Wilderness and all DVC resorts, except for Jambo House, opened on June 22nd.
The new reopening plan for 9 additional Disney resorts now read as:
|July 10||Disney’s Pop Century Resort and 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 Club Resort and Disney’s Beach Club Resort|
|September 21||Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa|
|October 1||Disney’s BoardWalk Inn|
|October 14||Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort|
This will also affect those staying in DVC villas at Animal Kingdom Lodge Kidani Village because normally those guests would have access to the Jambo House restaurants and swimming pool. It seems that this will not be the case for the foreseeable future.
Non-DVC Animal Kingdom Lodge rooms, as well as Wilderness Lodge, Port Orleans resorts and All Star resorts are also left off this reopening list and may not open until 2021.
Disney’s website stresses:
“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.….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.”
I hope that Wilderness Lodge and Jambo House reopen by Christmas-time since they are my favorite Disney Christmas season resorts!
At Kenny the Pirate we will continue to keep you updated with news of Disney’s reopening plan!
