Disney World theme park hours removed through May 16

Walt Disney World is currently closed “until further notice” and is trying to come up with ideas on how they can reopen safely to guests. As they try to brainstorm different ways to reopen under social distancing guidelines, the Walt Disney World website has been updated to remove all theme park hours through May 16, 2020.

For those hoping this means the theme parks may reopen on May 17, it’s worth noting that Disney has been gradually removing the scheduled hours in waves. They’ve also been cancelling resort reservations in waves.

Theme park hours removed through May 16.

Even if Walt Disney World has no intention of reopening before June (hypothetically), they’ve been “officially” cancelling everything gradually to prevent their customer service teams from being overwhelmed.

Previously, rumors suggested Disney was looking to reopen Walt Disney World sometime between June and September, but those tentative plans are fluid and could change drastically over the next few weeks and even months. Those plans also held the idea that the parks may reopen in phases, with the Magic Kingdom being the first to open and Epcot being the last.

While we don’t know what specific dates Disney may have in mind, we have heard it’s expected to take them a week or two to get everything ready before welcoming guests.
