Disney’s proposal included a lot of details about the expectations for reopening, but it did not touch on the reopening dates for resorts or Disney Vacation Club Properties. Shortly after the presentation though, Disney posted reopening dates for Disney Vacation Club properties at Disney World and more. Here are all of the current details.

Disney has shared that “pending approval from government officials, the phased reopening plans we submitted calls for Walt Disney World theme parks and Disney Resort hotels to open beginning July 11 for Magic Kingdom Park and Disney’s Animal Kingdom followed by EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios on July 15.”

According to the Disney World website, Disney Vacation Club (DVC) properties at Walt Disney World and Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground will begin to reopen to members and guests on June 22nd. DVC properties in Vero Beach, Florida, and Hilton Head, South Carolina will reopen on June 15th.

As of now, Disney has not released information on whether all of the resorts will open at once in Disney World or if they will open in phases. Regardless, they note that Disney resort hotel offerings may be modified, limited in capacity, and subject to availability or closure.

Disney has also shared that they are temporarily pausing new ticket sales and Disney Resort hotel reservations so that they can focus on those with existing tickets and reservations at this time. DVC members can still make new reservations. “Existing ticket holders and Annual Passholders will be able to make reservation requests in phases before new tickets are sold; we’ll be reaching out to these guests soon to provide additional details.” Ticket sales and hotel reservations will resume after this period of time.
