May 28, 2020 in "The Walt Disney Company"

The official Walt Disney World website was updated yesterday to include Walt Disney World Resort hotels opening alongside the Magic Kingdom on July 11.

The message has since be updated to remove any mention of the resort hotels, although the DVC hotel reopenings appear to be unaffected.

Pending approval from government officials, the phased reopening plans we submitted call for Walt Disney World theme parks 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. 

Additionally, Disney Vacation Club properties at Walt Disney World and Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground will begin to reopen to Members and Guests on June 22. Disney Vacation Club properties in Vero Beach, Florida, and Hilton Head, South Carolina, will open on June 15. Disney Springs has already begun to reopen. Upon reopening, theme parks, Disney Resort Hotels, restaurants and other offerings may be modified, limited in capacity and subject to availability or closure.
