Due to rising COVID-19 cases in Florida, Disney World has delayed the reopening of some of its resort hotels and is keeping others closed that were scheduled to reopen. Many Disney resort hotels reopened in June, but others remained closed as the theme park reopened on Jul. 11. The update was posted on the Disney World website.

Disney's Boardwalk Resort

The following Disney Resort hotels are now open and accepting new reservations:

The Polynesian Village Resort will reopen on Oct. 4 and the Art of Animation Resort will reopen on Nov. 1. Previously, both resorts were scheduled to reopen on Aug. 12. Disney’s Beach Club Resort and BoardWalk Inn, which were supposed to reopen on Aug. 24 and Oct. 1 will remain closed until further notice.

Future reopening dates are subject to change and Guests’ reservations could still be modified to other Disney Resort hotels if needed.

All four Walt Disney World theme parks are open and welcoming Guests. Check the website for further information.
