    There was a fantastic room discount I heard about so I called in and set it up for a few days in late July. The planner told me that nothing is known, however, there is a chance that the hotels and DD District could be open before the parks are. Fingers are crossed that it all works out.

    I think they are just shifting the date further and further out as they really do not know when things will open and they do not want to say "Until further notice" because that would diminish hope and interest where as moving the carrot a lil further away every month still keeps peoples interest. The ability to make a reservation also gives Disney a good hint on the interest they will have when the day finally comes they can open.

Sadly, it's just delaying the inevitable need to push the date down further: Medical experts are predicting a surge in coronavirus cases and a doubling of the death rate in June, thanks to the lifting of social distancing standards in May.
    I agree with you completely. I wouldn't paint Disney as being dishonest in this instance however, since you noted that reservations are a key metric of gauging interest. Frankly, whether it be booking a flight or making a reservation for a hotel, every person should be aware that things can shift and cancel on a dime.

    That is the true way of the ultimate Disney fans. They know how to work the system. I wouldn’t be surprised.

    I get optimistic when I see that Shanghai Disneyland is going to be opening, and then I realize that Disneyland is not in China, it's in the U.S., and our situation in the coming months is going to likely look dramatically different than China's.

    Honestly, I don't think that the change of date means anything other than, well, changing the date. I don't think it's indicative that they're 'planning' on opening July 1. I think it's simply a 'placeholder'. I expect they were getting more and more bookings for mid- to late- June so they closed the window on that month to try and ramp down people's belief that they'll be opening next month. They can (and probably will) close down July's booking just as easily in mid-June.

    I think it would be a whole lot better if they just stopped taking hotel bookings 'until further notice'. After all, that's their language on reopening the parks. But I suppose that wouldn't 'look good' PR-wise, especially since many people book 6+ months in advance.

  • Disneyland Delays Hotel Reservations to at Least July

    Per The OCR:
    The three Disneyland resort hotels are no longer accepting reservations before July as the closure of Disney’s Anaheim theme parks stretches toward two months amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

    New reservations for the Disneyland Hotel, Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel and Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel are currently available for travel dates on July 1 and later, according to Disneyland officials.

    Dining reservations and bookable merchandise experiences at the Disneyland resort are also unavailable until the Anaheim parks set a reopening date.
    Also this minor note:
    A new analyst report from research firm MoffettNathanson forecasts that Disney parks will reopen on July 1.
    I wonder if TDA will try to reopen at least Disneyland in July, in time for the 65th Anniversary.
