The Disney World theme parks have officially reopened, but the resort still has a way to go before it’s fully back in business.
Though many Disney Vacation Club resorts reopened back in June, we’re still patiently waiting for the reopening of the other Disney World resort hotels. Well, it seems like we’ll need to wait a little longer for some. Disney has officially DELAYED the reopenings of several Disney World resorts.
Disney has released a statement that opening dates do remain subject to change due to the fluidity of the global health crisis. This has gone into effect with Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, Disney’s Beach Club Resort, and Disney’s BoardWalk Inn.
Initially, Polynesian Village Resort and Art of Animation Resort were set to reopen on August 12th. Now, the Polynesian has a set date of October 4th, and Art of Animation will reopen on November 1st. Though Beach Club and BoardWalk were supposed to reopen August 24th and October 1st respectively, they have now both been removed from the reopening calendar.
For those with reservations that are affected by the change of date, Disney states they will contact guests with options available to either modify their reservation to another Disney Resort hotel at no additional cost or cancel their reservation without any Disney-imposed fees.
