Disney has only been accepting new reservations that begin on July 1 and beyond lately. So the speculated opening date of June 1 was looking less and less unlikely. Today that proved to be true.
Disney has started emailing guests with Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland reservations that begin between May 31 and June 6, 2020 stating they need to modify or change their dates. The letter that went out to guests explains that these are “rapidly changing times” and that Disney is focused on the safety of guests and cast members.
Unlike past cancellations, this time no free dining package was offered for Disney World. So I’m not sure if that offer is off the table now or not, but I would definitely ask about it when changing your reservation. However, Disneyland still has an offer for guests who need to change their dates. There’s a $50 per night resort credit for stays between July 1, 2020 and December 31, 2020 and a 35% discount for eligible guests on stays most nights July 1, 2020 and October 3, 2020.
Disney World Letter
There’s still no reopening date for Disney World. As of right now, new reservations can be booked with check-in dates on July 1, 2020 and beyond. However, Disney has said that this is not an indication of an opening date. Hopefully we’ll have a date soon and when Disney makes an official announcement I will definitely post the date.
Have your travel dates been impacted by the closure?
