Guests now looking to return to the Walt Disney World Resort will have to review, acknowledge, and confirm the following information and that now is the right time to return.
The message below was emailed to Guests with upcoming trips to Disney World:
Though some of our experiences have changed, the magic never fades. It never wavers. And it’s still waiting for you to come and experience it. That’s why we are excited about your upcoming Disney Resort hotel stay.
But to help you confirm if now is still the right time for your visit, please review the following operational updates and click the REVIEW AND CONFIRM button at the bottom of this email to confirm, modify or cancel your upcoming visit.
Here are a few of the changes:
HEALTH AND WELL-BEING MEASURES
While visiting Walt Disney World Resort, all Guests ages 2 and older—along with all Cast Members—will be required to wear face coverings. To learn more about this and other measures we have put in place, visit here.
THEME PARKS & EXPERIENCES
As a reminder, Magic Kingdom® Park and Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Park are scheduled to reopen on July 11 followed by EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios® on July 15.
To help manage attendance, we’re introducing Disney Park Pass service, a new Theme Park reservation system. All our Guests (including Guests of Disney Resort hotels) will need to make a reservation to enter the Theme Parks. Please be aware that you’ll first need a My Disney Experience account and a valid Theme Park ticket or pass linked to it to use the system. Park reservations are limited in capacity, subject to availability and are not guaranteed. Please check the Theme Park Reservation calendar prior to confirming your Resort stay. Guests will be able to select one Park per day. Visiting more than one Park per day will be temporarily unavailable.
At this time, new ticket sales are temporarily paused.
For more information on Theme Parks and tickets, please visit here.
Disney Springs® is currently in a phased reopening with many retail and dining locations ready to welcome you. For more information on locations open at Disney Springs®, please visit here.
Many Disney Resort hotel benefits and amenities may be temporarily unavailable. Select Disney Resort hotels are currently planned to reopen in a phased approach. Check here for the latest details.
If you have a reservation at a Disney Resort hotel that won’t be open during your travel dates, we can help modify it. And if you have a room and Theme Park ticket package, we can help modify that too. You can choose to modify your plans when you click the REVIEW AND CONFIRM button below.
During your stay, dining locations and experiences may be limited to manage capacity and foster physical distancing. To learn more about important dining details, visit here.
Resort transportation around property will be available in limited capacity to allow for physical distancing. Also, if you are arriving via Orlando International Airport, you may still take advantage of Disney’s Magical Express Service. Details here.
We know a stay here during this time will be different. But the world needs magic now more than ever. And we can’t wait to have you here with us. Hope to see you real soon!

Walt Disney World Resort is still on track to begin the phased reopening of its theme parks with the reopening of Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Animal Kingdom on July 11 followed by the reopening of EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios on July 15. And this is only the latest step they have taken to communicate with their Guests.
When it reopened Disney Springs, Inside the Magic reported that Disney issued a liability disclaimer on their website which states that Guests are voluntarily assuming all risks related to exposure to the pandemic, and when they announced the phased reopening plan, they shared more information on what could be expected in the parks. Disney World has even surveyed Guests regarding whether or not they would want to return to the parks.
Does having to review and make this confirmation change your opinion about returning to Walt Disney World? Why or why not? Let us know in the comments!
