As recently as yesterday, Disney Vacation Club members were unable to see booking availability for Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. Today, however, DVC members can see available Disney World villas beginning June 1, 2020.
At this time, availability is extremely limited for Florida DVC properties other than Saratoga Springs. There is also limited availability at The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort. Screenshots of both WDW resorts’ DVC availability for 2020 can be found below.
Although The Walt Disney Company has not confirmed when Disney World will reopen, the fact that Disney Vacation Club members can now reserve for June 1 and later could an indicator that WDW is close to some sort of reopening. However, Disney has consistently reiterated that availability for June vacations does not mean that they will for sure reopen Disney World in June.
Both Saratoga Springs Resort and the Grand Floridian are offering Disney Vacation Club bookings starting June 1.
Availability for these two Disney properties extends through October.

What Do We Know About Disney World’s Reopening?
Right now, Disney has not released specific information about what Disney World will once again open its gates. This week, Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Chapek discussed the company’s strategy for relaunching Disney Cruise Line sailings and reopening Disney theme parks around the globe.
The Disney CEO confirmed that Shanghai Disneyland will reopen on Monday, May 11.
As per Inside the Magic’s report, Chapek “shared that in terms of the continued plans going forward, one way Shanghai will address this, is through dated tickets. He added this was not to say that this will be the same domestically. Chapek added in terms of guest numbers, 80,000 a day is Shanghai’s average. The government says 30%, 24,000 a day. They will open far below that for training wheel purposes.”
