BREAKING: Walt Disney World Now Only Accepting Resort and Dining Reservations for June 1st and Later During Closure Due to Coronavirus

After yesterday’s closure extension “until further notice” due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Walt Disney World has now announced that they will only begin accepting reservations for dining and resorts for travel dates starting June 1 and later.

The following update was listed on the Walt Disney World Resort’s COVID-19 landing page:

The key wording here is: “As always, Guests are able to modify these bookings if Walt Disney World Resort opens before or after that time.” So clearly, after yesterday’s vague announcement, whether or not Walt Disney World will remain closed until June 1st is still undecided.

This comes on the heel of an announcement offering Free Dining to most guests with reservations directly impacted by the unprecedented Coronavirus closures.

  1. I think the “June 1st” is them trying to be careful here.
    I still think a reopening of Mid-May is still in the cards.

    1. Perhaps. But if their governor is arresting all travelers from Louisiana (us) that will leave a lot of people unable to get to DW.

    2. Mid May? Why bother , I mean from a business point of view yes opening sooner would be better. However, at that point you might as well just wait till June no?

  2. I wonder if this is Disney trying to set up a soft opening before June 1st. Between this and encouraging people to reschedule away from April and May trips, it allows them to control the capacity of the resort for when they first reopen without proactively cancelling established reservations (which would not go over well if the parks are open).

    Or…maybe I’m just saying this to convince myself my May 25th trip is still safe.
