One of the fun things you can do at Disney World is to book an “experience.” These can take unique forms like a backstage tour or in-park experience like building a lightsaber at Savi’s Workshop. When Disney World closed down the parks and started implementing their new reopening procedures, they canceled everyone’s reservations for dining and experiences. Today we got news on when guests will be able to rebook select Disney World experiences. We’ve got a breakdown of it all below!
When Can You Rebook Disney World Experiences?
The short and answer is June 30th, but with one giant caveat. The caveat is that only guests who had a reservation for an experience that was canceled can book right now. This makes sense as Disney World wants to give preference to those guests that were impacted directly by having an experience canceled.
We anticipate over time Disney will reopen access to all park guests, but as of right now, Disney World has not said when that will be. The official information from Disney is as follows:
“If you had an experience reservation on or before September 2, 2020, that was canceled as of May 28 due to the temporary closure of Walt Disney World Resort, you’ll have the opportunity to make a new experience reservation beginning on June 30 up to 60 days in advance of your arrival.
Beginning June 30, eligible Guests with experience reservations previously canceled due to the closure can call (407) 939-6690 to make reservations for available offerings. Eligible Disney Vacation Club Members can call Member Services at (800) 800-9800 for reservations.”
What Experiences Will be Available for Rebooking?
To start, guests will be able to rebook the following experiences:
Magic Kingdom Park:
- Capture Your Moment photo experience
Disney’s Hollywood Studios:
- Droid Depot
Walt Disney World Resort Hotels:
- Ft. Wilderness Archery Experience
- Horseback riding
- Wilderness Back Trail Adventure
- Fishing excursions
- Private pool cabanas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
It’s certainly a very limited list, but as with everything else, we expect Disney World to ease into reopening. If you are interested in doing it, we have a full Droid Depot review on the blog that you can check out.
For our family, the thing we happy to see is horseback riding. Elsa loves to ride horses, and we had planned on riding them at Fort Wilderness over our Christmas trip. She’ll be excited we can do this.
Once we hear when others can book experiences, we’ll let you know!
