The Walt Disney World Resort is delaying the reopening of a few of its on-site hotels.
Last month, Disney announced a phased reopening plan for its hotels, with most of its properties reopening between June 22 and October 14. However, Disney now has pushed back or withdrawn the proposed opening dates for four locations.
The Beach Club and Boardwalk join Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, Disney's Wilderness Lodge, Disney's Port Orleans - French Quarter and Riverside, and Disney's All Star Resorts in not having announced reopening dates. The Beach Club's sibling Yacht Club is one of three hotels currently hosting the NBA "bubble," along with the Grand Floridian and the Coronado Springs' Gran Destino Tower.
When the Disney World theme parks began reopening earlier this month, Disney had a backlog of thousands of postponed vacations that it needed to help guests to reschedule. But with international travel restrictions still in place and many Americans reticent to leave home or spend the money for a vacation in the middle of this pandemic, demand is down sharply across the travel industry. As of now, here are the proposed reopening dates for the remaining Walt Disney World hotels:
Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas – Kidani Village
Disney’s Beach Club Villas

Disney's Contemporary Resort
Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort
