Walt Disney World Resort has shared updated information regarding the theme park closures due to coronavirus concerns.
Disney announced that Disney World will be closing its theme parks beginning Monday, March 16. Since then, guests have been contacting Walt Disney World Resort Guest Services every chance they get in order to hopefully speak with somebody who can help them reschedule their trip. Now, Disney is advising against calling.
According to the most recent update shared to the Disney World website, if you do not have a trip within the next three days, then you are advised to refrain from calling Walt Disney World. Disney is experiencing a high volume of calls during this time, and the company is trying to prioritize the needs of those who have trips booked for this week.
Below is the message that Disney shared to the Travel Information page on the Walt Disney World Website and in a notification on the My Disney Experience app:
The current unprecedented situation is causing us to experience longer than normal waits at our call center. If you do not have a reservation in the next 3 days, please visit My Plans as many reservations can be modified without calling.
