I have some sad news for Disneyland fans. Apparently Disneyland has begun canceling reservations through August 8, 2020 for hotel stays. This comes after the news that they were pushing back the opening of Disneyland and Disney California Adventure, and the resort hotels, until an undetermined time. Seems like that time will be after August 8th at least.
According to Blog Mickey Disneyland is sending out an email to those with hotel reservations that says the following:
We are sorry to inform you that your upcoming visit with us will be impacted by several closures. We recognize that the COVID-19 situation is constantly evolving, and there are many factors that are helping us determine the timing of when various aspects of our business will reopen in a responsible way.
Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park remain closed and will reopen at a later date, pending state and local government approvals. The Hotels of the Disneyland Resort are also closed and will reopen at a later date. Given this unprecedented situation, we appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate through this process as responsibly as we can.
Unfortunately, this means we are unable to accommodate your upcoming hotel room reservation. If you have already modified or cancelled your upcoming Disneyland Resort hotel room reservation or Walt Disney Travel Company vacation package, no further action needs to be taken.
To provide additional flexibility, we are waiving Disney-imposed change and cancellation fees up to the date of check-in for reservations with arrivals through August 8, 2020. If you are unable to reach us before your check-in date for such time period, you will not be penalized or assessed Disney-imposed fees for cancelling your Disneyland Resort hotel room reservation or Walt Disney Travel Company vacation package after your check-in date.
Note that some package components are nonrefundable and subject to third-party operator cancellation policies. You should work directly with any third-party operators you have used to book any parts of your vacation package that were not booked through the Walt Disney Travel Company, including flights, travel protection and car rentals.
To cancel or modify your reservation, please contact the Walt Disney Travel Company at (714) 520-5050 between the hours of 7:00 AM PST and 9:00 PM PST, 7 days a week. If you are a Canada resident, please call (800) 496-6337.
If you originally booked through a Travel Professional, please reach out to them directly if you have questions or would like to reschedule.
We do anticipate heavy call volume and appreciate your patience as we work hard to respond to all inquiries.

Please keep this in mind if you had trip scheduled during this time frame. If you have a trip that is close to August 8th, keep watching for an email. They seem to usually go week-to-week on this. There is still not official reopening date set for Disneyland at this time. However, Downtown Disney District has begun phased reopenings.
