Walt Disney World has adjusted its phased reopening schedule for its hotels, changing the dates to later for some of its resorts. The alterations add two months to the closures of some locations, which have been shuttered in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort and the Art of Animation Resort had been scheduled to open Aug. 12. Now the Poly will be back in service Oct. 4, and Art of Animation is set to return Nov. 1, according to Disney World’s official website.

“Future reopening dates are subject to change, and guests’ reservations could still be modified to other Disney resort hotels if needed,”

the site says on its page dedicated to hotel updates.

Some other hotels are not scheduled for reopening yet, Disney said. “We will continue to evaluate the situation and reopen more locations when the environment is right to do so,” the site says.

Disney World hotels now open and accepting reservations include Disney’s Contemporary Resort (including Bay Lake Tower); Disney’s Pop Century Resort; Old Key West; Saratoga Springs; Disney’s Riviera Resort; BoardWalk Villas; Kidani Village of Animal Kingdom Villas; the villas at Grand Floridian, Polynesian, Beach Club; and Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground, including the Copper Creek Villas and Cabins and Boulder Ridge Villas.
