When Do The Walt Disney World Resorts Open?



Planning on booking a trip to Walt Disney World in 2020 but don’t know when your favorite resort is reopening? Don’t worry, we have you covered. Much like the fluctuation of re-openings among the parks across the world, the ‘OPEN’ dates have been moved around for the resorts in Walt Disney World. With two recent delays announced by WDW (Polynesian and AoA), here is an updated list of the opening days:



  • 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 (delayed from August 12)
  • Oct. 14: Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort
  • Nov. 1: Disney’s Art of Animation Resort (delayed from August 12)

From Walt Disney World:

Guests with current reservations at impacted Disney Resort hotels can request help with modifying their reservation starting Monday June 22. Reservations for stays in 2021 will begin booking on Wednesday, June 24. Only Guests with a valid theme park ticket or Annual Pass will be able to access the Disney Park Pass reservation system.



Given the current situation, there are some 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.





While these plans may evolve, we will be monitoring the constantly changing health environment and its impact on the state of Florida as we find the right time to welcome back even more of our Guests and Cast Members.
