Although Disney initially announced that their hotels would reopen alongside the theme parks, they later changed the wording on their website. As of now, only Disney World’s Disney Vacation Club properties and Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort are scheduled to reopen on June 22nd.
But now we might have a hint about which resorts and restaurants could be included in the next phase of reopening.
Thanks to Scott Gustin, we found out that Disney has reportedly started calling Cast Members back to work at various food, beverage, and resort locations.
The WDW food and beverage union (737) has shared with members a list of restaurants that are starting to recall Cast Members. According to the union, impacted workers at these locations are being called back to work starting June 14.⁰⁰ (thread) pic.twitter.com/RBhgSa5dO3

- Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort
- Disney’s Old Key West Resort
