RUMOR: Walt Disney World Cancelling All Dining Reservations, Experiences, Disney Dining Plans, and FastPass+ Selections Through September 2021
UPDATE: Walt Disney World has officially confirmed these reservation cancellations, albeit only through the end of the year. For the official details, click here.
Walt Disney World may be cancelling all booked dining reservations, experience bookings, FastPass+ selections, and Experiences through September 26, 2021. This is in preparation for an updated reservation system, based on the new guidelines that will be implemented upon the reopening (and are likely here to stay for an indefinite period of time.) Under this new system, Disney Dining Plan packages will be removed from existing Disney Resort hotel reservations, with a discount available for rebookings. Guests with existing reservations will have priority in the rebooking process.
The following announcement is being circulated amongst Travel Agent groups:
Beginning May 28, 2020, all dining reservations, experience bookings, Disney Dining Plan and FastPass+ selections will be cancelled. Guests with existing Resort reservations will have priority access to the new park reservation system when it becomes available. Additionally, when reservations for dining and other experiences resume, Guests who had existing reservations will receive priority access to rebook. Keep in mind, for dining locations within our parks, Guests will need a park reservation and valid admission before they can rebook dining and experiences.
Guests who purchased a Disney Dining Plan and tickets for dates between May 28, 2020 and September 26, 2021 will receive an automatic cancellation and refund of their Disney Dining Plan.
Guests who booked Resort hotel reservations with a Free Dining package for dates between May 28, 2020 and September 26, 2021 will receive an automatic cancellation of their Disney Dining Plan and are invited to rebook their vacation for a later date with a 35% room discount.
We’ll continue to update you as further details arise.
