Walt Disney World has adjusted the reopening dates to some of its resort hotels as it continues the phased approach to opening.
Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort and Disney’s Art of Animation Resort reopening have been pushed back “due to the current environment.” Both were slated to reopen Aug. 12.
The new planned reopening dates for 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
The company also announced Disney’s Beach Club Resort, scheduled to reopen Aug. 24, and Disney’s BoardWalk Inn, scheduled to reopen Oct. 1, will remain closed until further notice.
Guests impacted by these changes will be re-accommodated to one of the other Disney Resort hotels open during their stay at no additional charge.
The resort hotels are implementing a number of new and enhanced sanitation procedures, including increased cleaning in high-traffic areas and thorough housekeeping, among other protocols.
Club-level service, in-room celebrations, shipping services, and other resort amenities will also be unavailable upon reopening. Pools will have reduced capacity and may have reduced hours.
All four Walt Disney World theme parks and Disney Springs are now open. In order to manage crowd size, both a park reservation and valid admission for the same park on the same date are required to enter a park.
