Disney Hotel Reopenings Delayed

While the Disney Vacation Club resorts at Walt Disney World are up and running, many of their hotel counterparts are set for extended closures. This may impact availability of certain amenities at those resorts. 

Disney’s Beach Club

Reopening dates for four hotels havre been pushed back. Included are Disney's Beach Club Resort, Disney's BoardWalk Inn, Disney's Polynesian Village Resort and Disney's Art of Animation Resort. Beach Club and BoardWalk had originally planned to reopen on August 24 and October 1 respectively. Both are now delayed indefinitely. 

Polynesian's reopening has been delayed from August 12 to October 4, and Art of Animation from August 12 to November 1. 

These delayed reopenings could impact resort amenities, like Ohana restaurant at the Polynesian and Stormalong Bay swimming complex at Disney's Yacht and Beach Club Resorts. Many resort amenities are closed or running at reduced capacity while the hundreds of hotel rooms are not filled. 

Officially, Stormalong Bay remains listed among resort amenities which will "not be available during the initial reopening period." No specific updates have been provided. 

Other DVC-adjacent hotels are currently keeping their announced reopening dates. These include Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort (July 29), Disney's Yacht Club Resort (August 24) and Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa (September 21). No reopening dates have been published for Disney's Wilderness Lodge or Jambo House at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge.
