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.

I sure hope this rumor is just that a RUMOR!! We got free dining for our canceled May stay that we ended up rebooked for Aug. This wouldnt make sense at all… Why would they offer a rebooking deal and then cancel it later? This would really piss off alot of people including myself. Maybe they simply want more people to cancel their current hotel stays??

If this is the case, I don’t think my family and I will be going on our vacation in December. Disney Dining is a very important factor in our vacation and if we cannot make reservations, that could be a deal breaker

Crazy idea….do something else for vacation this year?? I can’t imagine being upset over a super cliche vacation destination not working out.

Not surprised Disney has turned there company into one big crap show, what’s next only one attraction at each park open and you must be in a plastic bubble to ride. Sorry cancelling my November trip and selling my DVC points done with Disney.
