Amid rumors that Disneyland is on the cusp of beginning opening proceedings for their two Anaheim theme parks, Disney has canceled additional reservations.
We reported eariler this week that according to several sources, Disneyland is planning on reopening to guests in a limited capacity on September 28. On September 10, Disneyland began to send out cancellation emails to guests with reservations through September 26th.
Disneyland still has not received approval from the state of California to reopen. Governor Newsom said this week that “progress is being made” on plans to reopen theme parks, but an opening date for Disneyland has not been identified
Disney is asking guests to cancel or modify their resort reservation for a later date.
Here’s a sample of the email being sent out to guests:
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 modified or 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 September 26, 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.
To cancel or modify your reservation, please contact the Walt Disney Travel Company 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.
