The Walt Disney World Resort theme parks are still temporarily closed. But even though guests may think there isn’t anything left open on Disney property, you can still participate in one activity. As long as you have a reservation, you can still golf at Disney World.
Over the weekend, Disney sent out an advisory regarding the current status of golf courses at Walt Disney World Resort:
The game of golf serves as an excellent way to exercise while promoting social distancing, and we are striving to continue providing this opportunity without interruption for the foreseeable future! Golf and FootGolf operations remain available on our regular schedule. We continue to closely monitor recommendations by health officials and have implemented significant measures to help ensure the well-being of all who visit and work at Walt Disney World® Golf.
Due to the closure of Disney’s Saratoga Springs® Resort & Spa, there will be a restricted access policy for Disney’s Lake Buena Vista Golf Course commencing Saturday March 21st. If a guest plans to visit this facility, they will be required to have a confirmed tee time reservation before entering the property. Access to the property will only be allowed from the security guard gate located across the street from the entrance to the Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace resort. Guests that would like to make use of our driving range facilities, or purchase items from our golf professional shop are being redirected to visit Disney’s Palm, Magnolia, and Oak Trail Golf facility instead.
Due to the restricted access policy for Disney’s Lake Buena Vista Golf Course, we are inviting Player’s Club members to contact our reservations team within an hour of an available tee time, and pre-book at the Walk-up rate. This will add your name to the tee sheet, and therefore, security can grant you access to the property.
For those that are here in Orlando currently, and interested to play, please contact our reservations center at (407) WDW-GOLF to request additional information, or to confirm a suitable tee time. We recommend continuing to visit our website for further updates to our schedule.
So as long as you are in the Orlando area and you are interested in playing golf at Disney World, you can make a reservation and confirm your tee time. You can also visit the official website here. Remember that even if you choose to partake in golfing at Disney World at this time, it is still highly recommended to continue social distancing as much as possible and continue to prioritize your health and safety.
We at Inside the Magic continue to keep our site updated with the latest Disney news, especially now since the theme parks are temporarily closed. We will keep sharing the information Disney fans need to know at this time, as well as positive stories to help get you through.
