Following the recent reopening of Shanghai Disney Resort and Disney Springs at Walt Disney World Resort, we’re pleased to share that more Disney magic is coming back. Walt Disney World Resort theme parks will begin a phased reopening on July 11.

Learn more about our plans for a phased reopening. Upon reopening, theme parks, Disney Resort hotels, restaurants, attractions, experiences and other offerings may be modified and will be limited in capacity and subject to limited availability or closure, based on direction from health experts and government officials to promote physical distancing.

Attractions, experiences (such as shows, parades and fireworks), services and amenities may have limited availability or may remain closed. We will provide more information as it becomes available. We reserve the right to cancel any reservations, admission media or purchases and provide applicable refunds. Please also see our policies regarding cancellations by Guests.

We know many of you are excited to return to the magic and make new memories with your family, friends and loved ones. As a result of limited capacity, we have made the difficult decision to cancel all existing dining reservations and experience bookings, including Disney dining plans included in packages.

Unfortunately due to capacity reductions the following will be cancelled:
Dining reservations, Offerings and experience bookings such as behind-the-scenes tours, Disney dining plans included in packages, All FastPass+ selections.

In addition, upon reopening, Extra Magic Hours will be temporarily suspended. Select third-party owned and operated restaurant reservations and experiences may not be cancelled.

Learn more about these cancellations below.

We will also shift from a 180-day booking window to a 60-day booking window for dining and experience bookings going forward to allow Guests to make their plans closer to their visits.

We will reopen dining and experience bookings with more limited numbers closer to when the parks reopen. We understand how much excitement, thought and time goes into planning a Disney vacation and realize some of these changes may be disappointing. Please know we will be here to help you, as we remain focused on delivering a wonderful experience for
everyone who visits.

Please be sure to check back here for the latest information.
Our focus remains on the health and wellbeing of the entire Disney community—including the Cast Members who are caring for and securing our parks and Resorts during the closure. We’re currently evaluating new and enhanced safety measures to help us all stay well. Learn more about these measures.
