Disney Resort Hotel Opening Changes

Disney's Beach Club Villas

Due to the ever-changing environment, Disney has made the decision to modify the opening dates of several Walt Disney World Resort hotels. This morning, emails began to be sent out to guests of these resorts letting them know their resort will not be reopening.

Disney has decided to adjust the reopening dates for Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort and Disney’s Art of Animation Resort due to the current environment. With this in mind, the planned reopening dates for additional Disney Resort hotels will be as follows. 

  • July 29: Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort
  • Aug. 24: Disney’s Yacht Club Resort
  • Sept. 21: Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
  • Oct. 4:  Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort
  • Oct. 14: Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort
  • Nov. 1: Disney’s Art of Animation Resort

Previously, the reopening dates for Disney’s Beach Club Resort and Disney’s BoardWalk Inn had been shared, these Disney Resort hotels will remain closed until further notice.
