Walt Disney World recently presented their reopening plan that discussed how Disney plans to welcome guests back to its four theme parks. While the presentation focused on guest safety within the theme parks, the topic of resorts was not addressed. However, a new update on the Walt Disney World website and some statements from Disney CEO Bob Chapek shed some light on the resort situation.
Per their website, Disney Vacation Club resorts at Walt Disney World will reopen to members and guests on June 22. Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground will also begin to reopen on June 22.
Meanwhile, Chapek was discussing the possibility that the NBA will finish out its season at Walt Disney World. There he mentioned that he anticipates some resorts will remain closed for the time being.
Specifics regarding which hotels might be dedicated to the NBA or which resorts may remain closed were not discussed.
Disney keeping some of its resorts closed for the foreseeable future shouldn’t be too surprising when you consider all of the logistical problems that could arise in the current climate. Disney doesn’t want to allow large volumes of guests to make resort reservations when they’re actively trying to restrict capacity in its theme parks.
Look for more information on Disney’s hotels to be released in the near future.
