Know Before You Go:
Guests that do not have a park ticket tied to their My Disney Experience account cannot make a Park Pass reservation. Guests without a Park Pass reservation will not have access to the Walt Disney World theme parks.
Park tickets and access to the parks through Disney's Park Pass System are outside of the DVCR Rental Agreement; these items are the sole responsibility of the guest.

Walt Disney World Dining and Experiences:
In order to foster physical distancing throughout the reopening process, Disney's offerings, such as restaurants and behind the scenes tours and other experiences will be limited in capacity, and other experiences may remain closed. As a result of limited capacity, Disney has made the decision to cancel all existing dining reservations and experience bookings, including Disney dining plans, through the end of 2020. Disney plans to reopen dining and experience bookings with more limited numbers again in the future. Disney has also announced that WDW is shifting from a 180-day booking window to a 60-day booking window for dining and experience bookings as a way to allow Guests to make their plans closer to their visits.
Walt Disney World's FastPass+ and Extra Magic Hours:
As a result of the COVID-19 impact, Walt Disney World's FastPass+ service will be suspended for the time being as Disney plans to use additional queue space to manage capacity at attractions and maintain physical distancing. Disney will automatically cancel existing FastPass+ selections and share any future updates on the service at a later date. Also, please note that as part of the reopening, ExtraMagic Hours have been temporarily suspended.
Travel Notice Regarding the Villas at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel:
Beginning December 6th, the Villas at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel will once again be welcoming guests and owners to their resort. During this initial phase, the Disney Vacation Club Villas at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel will be open; yet, the rest of Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa will remain closed. Upon reopening, restaurants, amenities, and other offerings may be modified or unavailable, limited in capacity, and subject to limited availability or closure.
Per the information announced by Disney, only a select number of rooms are due to reopen in 2020. For this reason, we do not feel that enough information has been released to allow for new bookings at the Villas at Disney's Grand Californian Resort for the remainder of 2020.
To date, neither Disneyland Park nor Disney's California Adventure Park have announced a reopening date. Upon reopening, theme parks, Disneyland Resort hotels, restaurants, attractions, experiences, and other offerings may be modified and will be limited in capacity and subject to limited availability or closure, based on direction from health experts and government officials to promote physical distancing.
