News! Disney World’s Swan and Dolphin Resort Will Remain Closed Through July 29th

With the exception of DVC members, Disney World has stopped accepting new reservations for its hotels while it gets ready to unveil a brand new reservation system.

But over the weekend, we discovered there was still a way to book a room at Disney World! That no longer seems to be the case.

As of this weekend, Disney’s Swan and Dolphin Resort was accepting new hotel reservations beginning July 1st. The hotels are located on Disney World’s property but are actually managed by Marriott and rooms could be booked through their third-party website.

As of right now, Disney has shared that “To enter a park, both a park reservation and valid admission for the same park on the same date is required.” And we have already confirmed with Disney that guests staying at Disney-partnered hotels such as Disney’s Swan and Dolphin Resort and Shades of Green will be considered Disney World guests.

Granted, Disney has shared that “a Disney Resort hotel reservation does not guarantee theme park access,”  but the fact that you could still book a room at Disney World seemed like a promising first step towards getting back into the parks.

However, while you could make reservations just yesterday, the Disney Swan and Dolphin Resort website now states that both resorts will remain closed through July 29th, 2020. This is well after the Disney World theme parks begin their phased reopening on July 11th.

We tried checking for any available rooms prior to July 29th on the Marriott website today and as expected, there are currently no rooms available for those dates.

When searching for rooms after July 29th, Disney’s Swan and Dolphin Resort had available rooms which could still be booked using the third-party website. We’ll continue to follow this developing story!
