Welcome Back to Select Walt Disney World Resort Hotels
The day is finally here! On June 22nd, guests from near and far will be able to once again stay in Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground and select Disney Deluxe Villa Resorts.
The select resorts are as follows:
- Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort
- Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge
- Copper Creek Villas & Cabins at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge
- Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas – Kidani Village
- Disney’s Beach Club Villas
- Disney’s BoardWalk Villas
- Disney’s Old Key West Resort
- Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows
- Disney’s Riviera Resort
- Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort
- The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort
Guests that will be checking in are strongly encouraged to use the Online Check-In Service in order to limit contact at the front desk. You will get a notification when your room is ready. According to Disney, you can even talk with a Resort Cast Member on the My Disney Experience App if you need assistance during your stay! Another great way to minimize standing in line at the front desk.
If you see cast members cleaning high-traffic public areas of the resorts–don’t be surprised. Disney plans to step up their cleaning protocol. It will be nice to check into your resort room knowing that the floor was steam cleaned and the door handles were thoroughly sanitized. Guests can also plan to find individually wrapped glassware, double-cased pillows, and single-use packaged items in their room. There will be a light every-other-day cleaning service instead of the usual daily one. Bell services will still be delivering luggage, but club level service, in-room celebrations, and shipping services are temporarily suspended.
Pools will be open and operating at a reduced capacity. There is a possibility of reduced hours at some pools, but still plenty of time to get your swimming fun each day! Activities will vary by resort and the schedule can be found after arrival. Unfortunately, characters, arcades, campfires, and playgrounds will not be available during the initial reopening.
Please note that all guests age two and up will be required to have a face-covering in public areas of the resort. The two exceptions will be swimming and eating.
Of the first resorts to reopen, which is your favorite?
