BREAKING NEWS: Disneyland Resorts Cancels All Reservations For The Rest of 2020
If you’ve been following along with MickeyBlog you know that earlier today we shared the news that Disneyland is planning on reopening their DVC villas at the Grand Californian to Vacation Club members for stays beginning on December 6th. However, when it comes to regular bookings at their three onsite hotels, they have just announced that they will remain closed through the duration of 2021.
Disney is sending out an email to travel professionals letting us know that they are reaching out to anyone with a reservation through December 31, 2020 to advise them of the closures. Below you’ll find a copy of the letter that is going out to those with a 2020 reservation at Disneyland:
SAMPLE GUEST COMMUNICATION FROM DISNEYLAND REGARDING 2021 CLOSURE
We are sorry to inform you that your upcoming visit with us will be impacted by several closures. We recognize that the COVID-19 situation is constantly evolving, and there are many factors that are helping us determine the timing of when various aspects of our business will reopen in a responsible way.
Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park remain closed and will reopen at a later date, pending state and local government approvals. The Hotels of the Disneyland Resort are also closed and will reopen at a later date. Given this unprecedented situation, we appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate through this process as responsibly as we can.
Unfortunately, this means we are unable to accommodate your upcoming hotel room reservation. If you have already cancelled your upcoming Disneyland Resort hotel room reservation or Walt Disney Travel Company vacation package, no further action needs to be taken.
To provide additional flexibility, we are waiving Disney-imposed change and cancellation fees up to the date of check-in for reservations with arrivals through December 31, 2020. If you are unable to reach us before your check-in date for such time period, you will not be penalized or assessed Disney-imposed fees for cancelling your Disneyland Resort hotel room reservation or Walt Disney Travel Company vacation package after your check-in date.
Note that some package components are nonrefundable and subject to third-party operator cancellation policies. You should work directly with any third-party operators you have used to book any parts of your vacation package that were not booked through the Walt Disney Travel Company, including flights, travel protection and car rentals.
Please contact the Walt Disney Travel Company for more information at (714) 520-5050 between the hours of 7:00 AM PST and 9:00 PM PST, 7 days a week. If you are a Canada resident, please call (800) 496-6337.
If you originally booked through a Travel Professional, please reach out to them directly if you have questions or would like to reschedule.
We do anticipate heavy call volume and appreciate your patience as we work hard to respond to all inquiries.

And for those planning on visiting the Anaheim area this holiday season, it should be noted that Downtown Disney, Disneyland’s shopping and dining district has been open since July and will remain open throughout the holiday season. As we previously reported here at MickeyBlog, Disney is also opening Buena Vista Street at Disney’s California Adventure which adds extra shopping opportunities for visitors. However, the rides and attractions at the theme parks remain closed.
With 2021 Disneyland vacation packages not currently on sale to book, guests CANNOT currently book a Disneyland vacation. Keep following along with MickeyBlog and we promise to let you know when that changes!
