Below is the official statement written on the Moonlight Magic web page of the Disney Vacation Club official website:

Update: Events Cancelled Through 2020

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 April through the end of 2020 have been cancelled.

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

But what is Moonlight Magic? If you aren’t a Disney Vacation Club member, then you may not know about these exclusive after-hours events. During a Moonlight Magic event, Disney Vacation Club members are given after-hours access to one of the four Walt Disney World Resort theme park. They are a lot like the separately ticketed Disney After Hours events, only Moonlight Magic is exclusive to DVC members, so not everyone can get a ticket.

Moonlight Magic events are some of the most highly anticipated nights for Disney Vacation Club members, so it is unfortunate that the events of 2020 related to the pandemic have led Disney to make the difficult decision to cancel all Moonlight Magic events through the rest of 2020. We will update Inside the Magic with more information regarding Disney Parks and Resorts operations as Walt Disney World Resort and the rest of the Disney company navigates these changes.
