Walt Disney World has updated their resort hotel opening list to finally add moderate and value resorts to the list. Not all resorts have scheduled reopening dates yet.
Here’s their statement:
“As we open these hotels, we are taking a measured and deliberate approach to implement a number of health and safety measures based on guidance from various governmental authorities and health agencies. In addition we currently plan to open the following Disney Resort hotels to booked Guests on the following dates.
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.”
Of course they are all subject to change if circumstances change, so keep that in mind.
Here are the hotels that will be reopening and when:
July 10: Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas-Jambo House, Disney’s Pop Century Resort, 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 and Beach Club
September 21: Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
October 1: Disney’s Boardwalk Resort
October 14: Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort.
The hotels that are open as of today are:
- 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 Villas
- Disney’s BoardWalk Villas
- 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
Of course this stuff changes all the time, so double check with Disney or your preferred travel partner ahead of your booking or visit.
I think a lot of the reason some of the delays for certain hotels is due to the deals Disney made with sports organizations. They need money and those organizations have money so of course they cater to them first.
This does give far more options to those who are waiting until later this year to go due to pandemic concerns.
