Disney World is now only accepting reservations beginning in July 2020.

Reservations are currently available for travel dates on July 1 and later, according to Disney’s website.

Previously, Disney World had stopped accepting reservations before June 1 during the coronavirus closure of the Central Florida theme park.

Disney has been closed since mid-March and has not announced any plans for reopening theme parks in Central Florida.

Shanghai Disneyland reopened on Monday. Disney is limiting visitor numbers, requiring masks and checking temperatures at the gate.

Disney said last week that it will begin a phased reopening of Disney Springs.

Disney Springs Vice President Matt Simon posted Thursday on the official Disney Parks Blog that the area will reopen May 20 with enhanced safety measures to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

Those measures include increased cleaning procedures, the use of appropriate face coverings by both cast members and guests, limited-contact guest services and additional safety training for cast members. The post didn’t say which businesses would open first.

Disney's Chief Medical Officer Dr. Pamela Hymel gave an update on what people can expect once its other parks, resorts and stores reopen.

The company is looking into phased reopening at all locations, whether it be a gradual reopening or partial for certain areas.

Hymel said Disney is working to manage guest density and social distancing with not just restaurants and hotels, but queues and ride vehicles. The measure will likely include guest capacity that matches state and federal guidelines to keep visitors and employees safe.

Disney is also looking into virtual queues for Disney World and Disneyland with the help of their app.
