Among the many perks of being a Disney Vacation Club member are the exclusive Moonlight Magic events that are hosted at Disney theme parks throughout the year.

The after-hours events are only for DVC members and their guests, giving the DVC community a chance to experience various Disney Parks, including Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Magic Kingdom, and the Typhoon Lagoon water park, without the usual crowds.

The official Disney Vacation Club website update regarding Moonlight Magic reads:

“Update: Events Cancelled in June, July and August
With the safety and well-being of our Members, Guests and Cast always top of mind, Disney Vacation Club continues to evaluate our upcoming slate of Membership Magic events and make necessary adjustments. Moonlight Magic events previously scheduled for June (during the park closure period), July and August will be cancelled.

Thank you for your patience and kindness as we all navigate the challenges surrounding COVID-19.”

Given the current fluidity of Disney Parks policies and the cancellation of Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Walt Disney World, it is unsurprising that DVC Moonlight Magic events will not be taking place this summer.

In addition to the challenges associated with making sure Cast Members have been properly trained for special events, many of the experiences, like fireworks displays and character meets, that make Disney after-hours events so much fun are suspended at this time.

Furthermore, some of this summer’s Disney Vacation Club Moonlight Magic events were scheduled to occur before Disney’s theme parks reopen. Walt Disney World is still expected to have its scheduled phased reopening from July 11-15, but Disneyland Resort’s original July 17 reopening has been delayed.

The full list of canceled Moonlight Magic event dates is:

At this time, Moonlight Magic at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, including Galaxy’s Edge, is still scheduled to occur on September 15, 2020, September 22, 2020, and October 6, 2020. No Moonlight Events are currently scheduled for Disneyland or Disney’s California Adventure this year.

If you are DVC member who had tickets to Moonlight Magic in June, July, or August, contact Disney Vacation Club directly to learn how to get a refund.

Will my DVC resort reservation be cancelled too?

If you had a resort reservation specifically for a cancelled Moonlight Magic event, you might be concerned about losing your hotel reservation as well.

There is currently no official information about whether or not Disney resort hotel reservations will be impacted by DVC Moonlight Magic event cancellations.

Since DVC resort reservations are booked independently of Disney vacation tickets, however, it is very likely that resort rooms will not be affected.
