Bookings will reopen Thursday, July 8, for the last four Disney World hotels have been closed since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Disney announced that guests will be able to book:
- Disney’s All-Star Music Resort, for stays starting Sept. 16
- Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside for stays starting Oct. 14
- Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter for stays starting Oct. 28
- Disney’s All-Star Sports Resort for stays starting Dec. 9
It’s not immediately clear whether the resorts will open with any significant changes or upgrades. Rooms at All-Star Music were beginning a refurbishment process early in 2020, with changes matching recent overhauls to the accommodations at All-Star Movies and Pop Century.
Disney World began reopening its on-site hotels in June 2020, following an initial shutdown of the entire resort that began in mid-March. While initially low demand led Disney to push back reopening more resorts beyond summer 2020, as crowds returned — and especially with COVID-19 vaccines becoming widely available — Disney has needed more hotel capacity.
Once All-Star Sports reopens, all Disney World hotels will once be available.
Universal Orlando had also kept some hotels closed due to the COVID-19’s impact on Orlando tourism. The final on-site hotel to come back online, Universal’s Aventur Hotel, reopened in June.
