Will Disney Extend This Deal to More Guests?

As of right now, we’re keeping an eye on potential deals and discounts that Disney might offer to all guests looking to visit the parks when they reopen, but this deal does not currently apply to anyone outside of the eligibility parameters set above.

When Will the Theme Parks Reopen?

Anyone who has been following the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic closely knows – it’s a very fluid situation. From orders to stay in your home to social distancing, the world is taking action to try and stop the spread of the virus. Because the situation is so fluid, there is no way to know when Disney will reopen the park. Disney themselves haven’t given a reopening date and the parks remain closed indefinitely.

That said, Disney is accepting new reservations starting June 1st. While it’s always possible that the parks and resorts could open sooner (or later), this seems to be a target date for Disney moving forward.

As always, keep checking back with us here at BlogMickey.com for the latest Disney Parks news and photos. We’ll continue to bring you news and photos, where possible, through the Disney Parks closure due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) and will resume our normal coverage once the parks reopen to guests on July 11th!
