An Update on Disney Resort Hotels from Worldwide Safety Services

Walt Disney World has provided an update on the safety precautions and operational changes taking place at Disney Resort Hotels when they reopen on June 22. Katie Kelly, Vice President, Worldwide Safety Services at Disney Parks shares what you can expect when you book a stay at a Disney Resort hotel.*

At the Resort

Checking In - you have the option and are recommended to use Online Check-in service at select locations and meet your luggage at your room with redesigned bell services. 

Cleaning - Disney is increasing cleaning in high-traffic areas such as elevators and escalators, handrails, benches, tables, handles, restrooms, and more. Disney has also increased the number of hand sanitizer locations across the property.

Dining & Recreation - At the restaurants, lobbies, pools, fitness centers, and other public areas, services will be adjusted to enable preventive measures and physical distancing, including reducing capacity where appropriate and implementing enhanced cleaning measures. 

Technology - Technology will be used to limit the contact at shopping and dining locations with Mobile Order, cashless options and Magic Bands.**

In Your Room

Before arrival - every room will be given an enhanced cleaning.

During your stay - a light cleaning service including removal of trash and replenishment of towels and amenities will be offered every other day.*** 

The housekeeping cast members will receive training on increased cleaning measures throughout the resort hotel and for each guest room, including updated practices for cleaning tools and managing in-room amenities, linens, luggage, and more.

How You Can Help

Of course, Disney guests also have an important role to play in promoting health and safety by washing your hands frequently with soap and water; following physical distancing and other guidelines when you visit; and rescheduling your visit if you or a member of your party feel ill or are subject to quarantine or other travel restrictions.

Walt Disney World Resort will continue to monitor the situation and make adjustments as appropriate.
