Guests traveling to Florida to stay at Walt Disney World will need to adhere to the travel restrictions currently in place at the time of travel. As mentioned above, guests who wish to enter a resort must have a room reservation, and, for those visiting for the day, a dining reservation.

Today’s updates also state that a hotel reservation does not guarantee theme park admission. Guests will need to have a park reservation and valid ticket media in order to enter a park.



Guests ages 2 and up must wear a face covering at the resorts, with the exception being while seated at a dining location or swimming.

Regarding transportation to and from the Disney resorts, Minnie Van service will be unavailable during the first phase of reopening.
