When Disneyland and Disney World announced earlier this month that they were temporarily shutting down to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, the plan was only to close through the end of March. Last Friday, however, the closure was extended until further notice. And though Disney Parks has yet to set a new reopening date, Disneyland and Disney World are now taking reservations for dates beginning on June 1st.
For guests who want to modify their existing travel dates or make new bookings for a future vacation, reservations are currently available for travel dates June 1st and later, according to a recent notice posted on Disneyland and Disney World websites. Guests are also able to adjust these new bookings if the theme parks open before or after that time.
Unexpired multi-day theme park tickets with unused days or date-specific them park tickets with a valid use period beginning March 12th through the closure will automatically be extended to use any date through December 15th of the year. For guests who are unable to visit the theme parks by December 15th, they may apply the value of a wholly unused ticket toward the purchase of a ticket for a future date.
To give guests more flexibility, Disney Parks is also waiving Disney-imposed change and cancellation fees up to the date of check-in for reservations with arrivals through June 30th.
To reiterate, this does not mean that Disneyland and Disney World will definitely reopen on June 1st. The given date is simply Disney Parks’ best guess as to when the spread of COVID-19 will be controlled to the point that businesses can resume their operations.
