The emails are being sent to Walt Disney World Resort Guests with reservations from June 14-20, 2020, and Disneyland Resort Guests with reservations during the week of June 21-27, 2020.

Disney also provided us with instructions for how to modify Disney World Hotel reservations using the My Disney Experience app:

Currently Disney is modifying reservations up to 6/21/20. Some can be done by signing in your My Disney Experience account and going to My Plans page. Once that opens up scroll down and find your reservation and tap on Edit/Or Update on the right hand side. If you do not have that option, You would need to directly call Disney Travel Operations at 407-W-DISNEY (407-934-7639) and ask for Itinerary Planing for further assistance.

To cancel or modify your reservation, please contact the Walt Disney Travel Company at (714) 520-5050 between the hours of 8:00 AM and 7:00 PM, 7 days a week. If you originally booked through a Travel Agent, please reach out to them directly if you have questions or would like to reschedule.

Currently, the Disney World theme parks are set to reopen in mid-July. There has not yet been a reopening date announced for the theme parks at Disneyland Resort. 

Keep in mind that all new hotel reservations at Walt Disney World Resort are currently on pause, however the Disney Vacation Club resorts and Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground are reopening this month, and Cast Members are being called back to work.

Sample Letter for Disneyland Resort Hotel Guests:

Dear Guest,

We are sorry to inform you that your upcoming visit with us will be impacted by several closures.

While there is still much uncertainty with respect to the impacts of COVID-19, the safety and well-being of our Guests and employees remain Disneyland Resort’s top priority.

As a result of this unprecedented pandemic and in line with direction provided by health experts and government officials, the Disneyland Resort is currently closed and a reopening date has not been identified.

If you have already modified or cancelled your upcoming Disneyland Resort hotel room reservation or Walt Disney Travel Company vacation package, no further action needs to be taken. If you’re interested in modifying your existing travel dates or making a new reservation for a future vacation, reservations are currently available for travel dates July 16, 2020 and later.

To provide additional flexibility, we are waiving Disney-imposed change and cancellation fees up to the date of check-in for reservations with arrivals through July 15, 2020. If you are unable to reach us before your check-in date for such time period, you will not be penalized or assessed Disney-imposed fees for cancelling your Disneyland Resort hotel room reservation or Walt Disney Travel Company vacation package after your check-in date.

Note that some package components are nonrefundable and subject to third-party operator cancellation policies. You should work directly with any third-party operators you have used to book any parts of your vacation package that were not booked through the Walt Disney Travel Company, including flights, travel protection and car rentals.

To cancel or modify your reservation, please contact the Walt Disney Travel Company at (714) 520-5050 between the hours of 8:00 AM and 7:00 PM, 7 days a week. If you originally booked through a Travel Agent, please reach out to them directly if you have questions or would like to reschedule.
