With yesterday’s breaking news of Disneyland’s proposed plans for phased reopening, the Disney networks were bursting with the exciting news! Disney Vacation Club Members also received a message in their inbox with an update on DVC Resorts from Terri A. Schultz, Senior Vice President of DVC.
We received the following email:
Dear Disney Vacation Club Member,
We have more good news to share about our resort reopening plans – and I wanted you to hear about it as soon as possible.
With the June 15 reopening of Disney’s Vero Beach Resort and Disney’s Hilton Head Island Resort less than a week away and with Disney Vacation Club® properties opening June 22 at Walt Disney World Resort, I’m delighted to now share the schedule for the proposed phased reopening of Disneyland Resort in California.
Plans call for the Downtown Disney District at Disneyland Resort to begin reopening on July 9. Pending state and local government approvals, Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park plan to reopen on July 17 followed by the planned reopening of Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel and Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, including The Villas at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, on July 23.

Disneyland Resort will prioritize the health and safety of our Cast Members and Guests. A summary of what to expect as you plan your next visit, from a new theme park reservation system and increased cleaning measures to enhanced health and safety protocols, is posted on the Disney Parks Blog. We thank you for the important role you’ll play in helping us to responsibly get back to the business of making Disney magic, and we’ll continue to adjust operations and procedures as the situation evolves.
Today’s announcement means that all Disney Vacation Club resorts are now scheduled for reopening except for Aulani, Disney Vacation Club Villas, Ko Olina Hawai’i. With reopening plans for Aulani Resort in development, we are working with government officials and public health authorities in Hawai’i and will schedule the resort’s reopening at the appropriate time. We will notify you when that decision has been made.
All of us at Disney Vacation Club thank you for your continued patience, kindness and understanding during our time apart. The opportunity to welcome you back “home” has been our light at the end of the tunnel, and with that light growing brighter each day, we couldn’t be more eager to be together again.
