While plans are still coming together for a reopening at Walt Disney World later this year, it looks like Disney is continuing to make preparations in the wake of the resort's extended closure. From pushing back available reservations to extending tickets and cancelling deals, here are all the changes happening now as Walt Disney World continues to grapple with the resort's closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Reservations in June no longer available

Earlier this week during Disney's official earnings call, executives declined to say how Walt Disney World could open in the near future, and insinuated that they would not be opening the park at rock bottom guest levels because it would not be profitable for them to do so.

And though Disney only officially cancelled Walt Disney World vacations booked through the end of this month, May 31, 2020, earlier this week they quietly stopped taking reservations from now through July 1, 2020, which is in line with Disneyland's potential reopening date.

Free dining deal no longer available for rebooking guests

Guests who booked a vacation package or room reservation to stay at a Disney Resort hotel from March 16 through May 31, 2020 were previously being offered a new deal that includes complementary free dining when they re-book their vacation. However, it looks like, as of last week, this deal has been quietly discontinued, as all mention of the deal has been removed from Disney's website and guests who call to rebook their vacation are no longer able to take advantage of this offer. 



I feel Disney world should open it up to florida residents only for 3 months.
