    Hey! We are so confused...when will new reservations for a hotel be allowed. We want to do a stay and enjoy a week at AKL in August. With only 50 days until we want to be there it is making us nervous of if we need a backup plan. Thanks!

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Robin! Your family sounds just like mine because we love planning last-minute trips to Walt Disney World Resort too. I'm sorry your vacation plans have been interrupted but since the phased re-opening of the Theme Parks and Resort Hotels has been announced, it sounds like you have plans to come back as soon as possible so let's chat about when and how you'll be able to book a new vacation package.

    Since it seems like you're on top of all the breaking news, I'm sure you know that Disney has announced a lot of plans this week about the Disney Park Pass system, which is how guests will make reservations to visit a Theme Park. With the announcement of this new system, we also have a few important dates to add to our calendar. On June 22, guests with valid admission and Resort Hotel reservations will be able to make Theme Park reservations using the Disney Park Pass system, and beginning June 26, Annual Passholders without a Resort Hotel stay can make their reservations as well. Finally, on June 28, all other existing ticket holders will be able to make their Theme Park reservations. We also know that by June 28, guests will be able to book new vacation packages for arrival dates beginning in 2021, but at this time we do not know when or if Resort Hotel bookings will resume for the remainder of 2020. If it does become possible to book a Resort Hotel room with an arrival date for August, you'll hear about it first on the Disney Parks Blog so be sure to bookmark the site and check back often to be among the first to know all the breaking news!

    Have a magical day, Robin!
