Disney is getting ready to reopen its hotels at the Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts. Today, the company detailed some of the new procedures that guests will encounter when they check in for their stay.
At Walt Disney World, select Disney Deluxe Villa Resorts and Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground will reopen on June 22, in advance of the phased reopening of Disney World's theme parks on July 11. Disney's Magical Express service to and from the Orlando International Airport will remain available, though Minnie Vans and valet parking at the resorts will not be during the initial reopening period.
At the hotel, guests are urged to download the latest version of the official My Disney Experience app and to use it for online check-in to their room. Bell services will be available to bring up luggage, but they will not escort you to your room. Club-level services and in-room celebrations will not be available, nor will valet laundry.
Pools and fitness centers will operate with reduced capacities, and arcades, playgrounds, marine rentals, spas, salons, and Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique will be unavailable.
In your room and throughout the resort, Disney will be using enhanced sanitation procedures, including increased cleaning of high-traffic areas including elevators, handrails, benches, tables, door handles, and restrooms. Rooms will get an enhanced cleaning between guests, with a light cleaning service every other day during the stay. DVC gets service on the fourth and eighth days of a stay. Here is Disney's latest promo video on its hotel changes:
In the parks, Extra Magic Hours and Fastpass+ service are suspended for now and reservations will be required to visit the parks. Disney World is not currently accepting new hotel reservations while it works to clear the backlog of guests who had been booked for visits during the parks' closures.Tweet
