2021 Walt Disney World Resort Reservations Now Available

Walt Disney World Resort Reservations are now available through December 31st, 2021! We know so many families have been waiting for this moment since canceling or rescheduling their 2020 trips due to Covid-19. If you are not traveling to the parks this year, but would like to next year, now is the time to get started! 

Resort Packages vs. Room Only Reservations

All resort reservation packages are now available through the end of 2021, with or without the purchase of theme park tickets. You can book your accommodation in two ways:

Resort Packages: When booking a resort package, you are able to reserve your accommodation as well as your theme park tickets for your stay. This pricing comes together in a package and can be modified if needed before your arrival.

Room-Only: A room-only reservation does not include your theme park tickets. Theme park tickets can be purchased separately at a later date.

 

Park Ticket Details 

Walt Disney World is currently offering guests to purchase park tickets along with their accommodations or separately for all dates in 2021. Park Hopper tickets are also currently available, however as the parks are still running as a one-park-per-day limit, Park Hopper tickets are not guaranteed at time of travel.

Please note: If you have purchased your park tickets, entrance into the parks is not guaranteed until you have made park reservations for your specific dates. We highly recommend making your park reservations as soon as your accommodation is booked and tickets are purchased.

 

Resort Availability

There are lots of accommodation options to choose from on Walt Disney World property and where you decide to stay all depends on your schedule, your resort preferences, and resort availability.

Due to reduced capacity on Walt Disney World property, the following resorts are not currently scheduled to open for Fall 2021: 

  • All Villa Properties

  • Disney’s Boardwalk Inn
  • All-Star Movies Resort

*The Polynesian Resort refurbishment, including all new Moana themed rooms, will be finished by Fall 2021!

Dining Plans and Dining Reservations

At this time, Dining Plans will remain unavailable to add to resort reservation packages.

According to Disney, a confirmed dining reservation is required for day Guests (those not staying overnight) and is highly recommended for Guests staying overnight at a Disney Resort hotel.

Select dining locations require reservations so make sure to check each of your desired locations for details.

    Top 5 Reasons to Hire a VIP Guide at the Theme Parks

    Top 5 Reasons to Hire a VIP Guide at the Theme Parks

    Top 5 Reasons to Hire a VIP Guide in the Theme Parks

    Gone are the days where guests can show up to the theme parks with no plan or schedule. With hundreds of resort and dining options, attractions, and fun activities to do around Orlando, it is crucial to have a park expert assisting along the way. Here are Top 5 Reasons to Hire a VIP Guide in the Theme Parks.

    1. Creating the Perfect Schedule – for Everyone!

    Between four Walt Disney World theme parks and two Universal Studios theme parks,  there are over 100 attractions for guests to experience. Trying to organize a schedule where everyone in your group is able to do the attractions that are most important to them can be challenging. Your VIP Concierge here at My VIP Tour will discuss the parks and attractions with you in depth throughout the pre-planning process so they can create the perfect day-to-day theme park schedule for your family.

    Once you are here in Orlando, your VIP guide will navigate your family through the parks in a very specific way so that everyone is experiencing attractions that are suitable for them. We often hear from our families that they expected their children to have fun, but never expected to have just as much fun themselves. Everyone in your family, from little ones to teens, and adults of all ages, deserve to feel the magic of the theme parks with no stress of thinking how to get through the parks and crowds each day. 

     

    2. Shorter Wait Times 

    Shorter wait times are what most families look for when hiring a VIP guide, and that is one of our favorite perks of our service! The theme parks have become so busy over the past few years. The average a guest visiting the parks on their own will wait is about 45-60 minutes for an attraction. Most of the popular attractions will experience a 90 minute or more wait time in the afternoons and during peak season dates. Yikes!

    Our team at My VIP Tour has spent years studying the parks and attractions. Each an every one of our VIP guides goes through an intense training program to learn the in’s and out’s of the parks. With our expertise, and park knowledge, our families typically never wait more than about 15-20 minutes for an attraction throughout the day, leaving more time for rides and fun, and less time waiting in line. 

     

    3. Having a Local Expert

    We are Orlando based, many of us born and raised here, having visited Disney from a young age. Living here and visiting the theme parks daily puts us “in the know”.

    All of the pre-planning is incredibly important when visiting the theme parks, however one of the best perks of hiring a VIP guide is having a local expert in real time while you are on vacation. Our Disney VIP guides are able to visit the parks daily and keep up with every single change that comes our way. We take that knowledge to plan the perfect customized itinerary for each individual family. Our Disney VIP Guides keep in touch with their families throughout their entire stay to make sure they can answer any questions that may arise. Our team of Orlando experts and can make recommendations on dining, other theme parks to visit, and fun activities outside of the parks.

    Your Disney VIP guide will work together with your VIP concierge to cancel or make new dining reservations, book transportation, purchase extra park tickets, and do anything else they can do to help make your stay at the most magical place on earth as magical as it can be!

    4. More than just a VIP Guide

    Short wait times and stress-free planning are an amazing part of our service, however it’s the extra details that really elevate the experience.

    Our VIP guides go above and beyond to create an unforgettable experience for our families from the moment they enter the park until the moment they get back to the resort.

    We love to celebrate special occasions, take candid photos throughout each day, share our extensive knowledge on park history and facts, add in special (secret!) details for the kids, and so much more.

    Our VIP guides quickly become part of the family from day one and do everything they can to learn what is most important to each and every member of the group so they can customize the entire experience.

    5. Our Level of Care

    We truly believe that our level of care is what sets My VIP Tour apart.

    Each member of our team has visited the theme parks from a very early age and knows how special these trips can be. Some of our families plan their once-in-a-lifetime Disney trip with us and some visit with us annually. No matter if it’s your first or 20th trip, our goal is always to Build Better Memories each and every time.

    Our team truly cares deeply about our families and their vacations. From the first phone call with our VIP concierge team to the last good-bye with your VIP guide at the park, your happiness and satisfaction is our number one priority.

    Don’t just listen to us, head to our Trip Advisor page to read reviews from over 700 families who rated My VIP Tour five stars!

    We can’t wait to meet your family and Build Better Memories with you soon!  

      Contact our concierge team today to get started on your next Orlando theme park dream vacation.

      Fall in Love with the Holiday’s at Walt Disney World

      Fall in Love with the Holiday’s at Walt Disney World

      Fall in Love with the Holiday's

      at Walt Disney World

      Summer is officially over, which means our favorite time of year is right around the corner. There is truly something so magical about the theme parks during the Holiday season. This year is definitely different than previous years, however, there are lots of new and exciting things to look forward to in the coming months!

      Fall & Halloween at Magic Kingdom

      News13

        Although Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party has been canceled this year, fall is still such a wonderful time to visit the theme parks.
        From September 15th through October 31st, Magic Kingdom will be adorned with beautiful seasonal decor throughout the park. Characters including Mickey, Minnie, Pluto and pals will wave to guests from a special Halloween cavalcade. You may even see some of your favorite Disney villains along for the ride. Disney is also allowing guests for the first time ever to wear their favorite Halloween costume to the parks to celebrate.

      New Projection Show for Cinderella’s Castle Starting Nov. 6th 

      Each year during the Holiday season, Cinderella’s Castle lights up with over 200,000 beautiful crystal lights that emulate icicles dripping from every angle. This year, in place of the icicle lights, Disney has created an incredible projection show that will run through the evening starting at sun down. According to Disney Parks Blog, “the appearance of the iconic castle will be transformed with a rotating series of designs including a whimsical Christmas sweater and a regal overlay of red, green and gold ornamentation”.  Get your cameras ready! This new addition will make for an incredible Holiday card backdrop for the whole family.  

      Character Sitings throughout the Parks

      One thing we have truly missed about the parks is being able to meet all of our favorite characters and princesses. This holiday season, however, the Disney parks have created ways for us to see all of our favorites while staying safe with social distancing. Starting November 6th, guests will be able to see special character cavalcades through Magic Kingdom including gingerbread men, elves, reindeer and our personal favorite, the toy soldiers! Guests can also enjoy festive flotillas at Animal Kingdom, Holiday Promenades at Epcot, and Merry Motorcades at Hollywood Studios. Santa Claus will also be available to wave to guests at all four parks and Disney Springs.

      Minnie Mouse to Host Seasonal Dine at Hollywood & Vine

      We are so excited to see character dining slowly returning to the parks. Starting November 6th, Minnie Mouse will host a seasonal dining experience at Hollywood & Vine located at Hollywood Studios park. Santa Goofy will also be in attendance along with some of Minnie’s other friends. The characters will not be available for personal photos, however will be available to wave to guests and pose for photos.

      Celebrate the Holiday’s at Disney Springs

      If you are heading to the theme parks this Holiday season, make sure to stop by Disney Springs. Disney has announced that the “elaborately-decorated Disney Christmas trees are spread throughout this retail, dining and entertainment destination”. These beautiful trees will be displayed all throughout Disney Springs, which is perfect for an unplanned afternoon, or evening after a busy day at the parks. Another special addition to Disney Springs this year will be a magical snowfall throughout three of the main areas: The Landing, Town Center, and West Side.

      Jock Lindsey Hanger Bar will transform into Jock Lindsey’s Holiday Bar with returning holiday decor and a limited-time festive menu for guests to enjoy this Holiday season.

        Stay tuned for more Walt Disney World and Universal Studios updates in our October newsletter. You can also stay up to date on all park and resort information by following us on Facebook and Instagram.

        The land has Hollywood Studios, Magic Kingdom, and Animal Kingdom, while the sea has Disney’s AquaDuck! As silly as it sounds, trying the AquaDuck might just be one of the most thrilling and memorable experiences you’ll have at sea. If you want to ride this water coaster, make sure to book on either the Disney Fantasy or Disney Dream.

        Relax at the Spa

        Epcot’s Park Preview Experience

        Epcot’s Park Preview Experience

        Epcot's Park Preview Experience

        Walt Disney World Resort closed mid-March due to Covid-19. Four months later, we are thrilled that all four theme parks are now open! Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom opened their gates to all guests on Saturday, July 11th. Hollywood Studios and Epcot open this Wednesday, July 15th. Follow along with us as we document everything you can expect at Epcot for your upcoming visit!

         

        Entering the Park

        Parking 

        Upon entering the Epcot parking lot, cast members direct cars to park in every other row to allow space between each car. If you are planning on driving to the park, we would recommend factoring in additional time not only for parking, but also for walking up to the main entrance as trams are not currently running. You may travel to Epcot by either resort bus or driving directly to the park. The monorail is unavailable to and from Epcot at this time.

        Temperature Screenings/Security 

        As you approach the front of the park, Disney cast members will direct you to the temperature screening area currently run by employees from AdventHealth. A representative will quickly scan your forehead to make sure that your temperature is under 100.4 degrees. If your temperature reads above 100.4 degrees, you may take a few moments to cool down in a cooling tent before being screened again.

        Security cast members will then direct you to walk straight through the metal detectors. There is no need to stop or open any of your bags as required in the past, this makes for a much quicker and safer process.

        Turnstiles

        Once you are through temperature screening and security, you will arrive at the turnstiles queue, which will have separated markers on the ground to promote social distancing. At the turnstiles, a cast member will scan your park ticket or Magic Band. Guests are no longer required to use their fingerprint to enter the park to minimize contact.

        Masks

        Rules

        All guests over the age of 2 are required to wear face coverings during their time in the parks. In order to enter the park, you must be wearing a face covering with ear loops that cover both your nose and mouth. The parks do allow guests to remove their masks to eat or drink. To view Disney’s complete lists of rules regarding masks click here.

        Relaxation Stations

        Disney has added mask-free “Relaxation Stations” throughout the park to cool off throughout the day. These small, roped-off areas allow guests to remove their masks and take a break. Cast members only allow a small number of guests in at a time to ensure that everyone is at a safe enough distance.

        Epcot’s Relaxation Stations can be found at the following locations:

        • Outside the Yorkshire County Fish Shopper in the United Kingdom (World Showcase)
        • In between Test Track and Mission: Space (Future World)
        • Inside Akershus restaurant in Norway (World Showcase) as an air-conditioned option

        Ride Experience

        Attraction and Experience Updates

        Despite previous plans for a two-year long renovation, we are so excited that Spaceship Earth is open for guests returning to the parks. This gives guests the opportunity to experience the attraction one last time before any changes take place. Renovations for Spaceship Earth are delayed to a later date.

        Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak also returned on July 13th. Guests who are interested in this fun activity can purchase a scavenger hunt map from guest services for $7.99 and find Remy figurines hidden around the World Showcase.

        Queues

        All attractions throughout the park have new floor markers which indicate where each group should stand in order to be 6 feet apart. Most rides have added plexiglass shields as an additional barrier in areas where the line wraps around or are close together.

        All interactive elements found in queues such as Project Tomorrow at Spaceship Earth, and the design stations at Test Track are currently roped off and are not operating at this time.

        Safety Procedures

        All Disney cast members are permitted to wear face coverings throughout the park.

        Most attractions have plexiglass shields in between rows or reserved, empty seats to separate guests. For example, Soarin’ Around the World is currently seating guests in each row, however, plexiglass separates parties from one another. Guests may ride in groups of two or four. 

        Ride vehicles are deep cleaned and sanitized by cast members every two hours. We recommend bringing your own sanitizing wipes if you would like some added reassurance before boarding rides.

        Characters

        Sightings

        Epcot is one of our favorite parks on Walt Disney World property to meet characters and Princesses. Even though character meet & greets are unfortunately not currently available, we are so excited that there are still so many characters to see around the park!

        Throughout the park previews, Anna and Elsa have been noticed welcoming guests to the park. Around the World Showcase, you may see Mickey, Minnie, Pluto, and Goofy as well as Disney Princesses making their way from country to country. Joy, from Disney’s Inside Out, as well as Winnie the Pooh, have also been seen frolicking through grass areas in the World Showcase.

        Dining Experience

        Taste of Epcot International Food & Wine Festival

        Due to Epcot closing shortly after the Flower & Garden Festival began in March, Disney has decided to blend the event together with the annual International Food & Wine Festival. Guests will see a handful of Flower & Garden topiaries placed around the park as well as more than 20 global marketplaces to sample cuisine from around the world. Appropriate social distancing will be mandatory at all marketplaces and high top tables will be offered for a mask-free dining experience. Click here for more information on the Taste of Epcot International Food & Wine Festival.

        Quick Service Restaurants/Mobile Ordering

        While Mobile Ordering on the Disney Experience app is not a new concept, it is now required for all Quick Service restaurants. This includes the new Regal Eagle Smokehouse located in America at the World Showcase and Sunshine Seasons in Future World. The process is relatively quick and easy! After you select your restaurant and food, you will be asked what time you would like to pick it up. A cast member will greet you and direct you to the correct pick-up window. Plenty of seating options are available and spaced out appropriately.

        Table Service Restaurants

        Many of Epcot’s table service restaurants located around the World Showcase are not currently open, which is more of a reason to visit the global marketplace booths included in the Taste of Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. Several restaurants in Epcot are owned by third party companies and do not currently have set dates to re-open. Restaurants that are currently closed include Chefs de France, Monsieur Paul, Nine Dragons Restaurant, Restaurant Marrakesh, Takumi-Tei, Teppan Edo, Tokyo Dining, Yorkshire County Fish Shop, and more.

        We were extremely happy to see that character dining became available at Garden Grill located in Future World. Here you can see Mickey Mouse, Chip ‘n’ Dale and Pluto.  Princess dining at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall will remain closed for now.

        All of the restaurants at Epcot have spaced their tables out six feet apart and will be utilizing paper menus.

        Shopping

        Stores

        Many souvenir shops located in the countries around the World Showcase are currently closed. If you are looking to do some shopping on your upcoming visit to Epcot, we recommend visiting MouseGear, temporarily located at the end of Innoventions East building, where you can find a wide variety of gifts and souvenirs for the whole family.

        Markings and signage are found throughout the stores to inform shoppers of health procedures as well as which direction to walk in. Dressing rooms were blocked off and will remain closed for now. Similar to the rest of the park, plexiglass shields are located at all of the check-out counters and contactless payment is encouraged.

        Overall, it was a dream to be back in the parks experiencing the Disney magic we have been longing for! While there were many changes from our last visit, we still thoroughly enjoyed our day and felt so fortunate to be part of the lucky Annual Passholders that could experience the day. Due to all of the new safety procedures and the Cast Members implementing them, we felt super safe as we explored the park in the “new normal”.

        Hollywood Studios’ Park Preview Experience

        Hollywood Studios’ Park Preview Experience

        Hollywood Studios' Park Preview Experience

        Today we had the pleasure of being some of the first guests back inside Hollywood Studios since its closure back in March due to Covid-19. While Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom both reopened their gates this past Saturday, Hollywood Studios and Epcot will not officially reopen to guests until tomorrow, July 15th. Luckily, we were able to book reservations for the Cast Member Park Preview and get a first hand look. Follow along with us as we document our full experience of the day!

         

        Entering the Park

        Skyliner

        Disney’s Skyliner made its debut back in September and is a fun, alternative way to get to and from Hollywood Studios and Epcot if you are staying at one of the select resorts along its route.

        Thankfully, these character themed gondolas will be back in operation for the park’s official reopening tomorrow with some additional safety features in place to ensure proper social distancing in queues. Gondolas will now be limited to one party per cabin.

        Temperature Screenings/Security 

        Cast members and signs direct you to the temperature screening tent. They quickly scan your forehead to make sure that your temperature is under 100.4 degrees.

        Security then directs you to walk straight through the metal detectors. There is no need to stop or open any of your bags as required in the past unless you have an umbrella, metal drink container or aerosol can with you, which makes for a much quicker and safer process. 

        Turnstiles

        Once arriving at the turnstiles, a cast member scans your park ticket or Magic Band with an iPad. Guests are no longer required to use their fingerprint to enter the park to minimize contact.

        Paper maps are still available at the entrance, but it is recommended that you use your Disney Experience app.  

        Masks

        Experience

        All guests over the age of 2 are required to wear face coverings during their time in the parks. However, the parks do allow guests to remove their masks to eat or drink. To view Disney’s complete lists of rules regarding masks click here.

        During the afternoon when the Florida heat is at its peak, it does get a little more uncomfortable to keep a mask on, so having the right mask is important. It is also worth noting that you may experience some fog while pairing your mask with the 3D glasses used on attractions like Muppet*Vision 3D and Star Tours – The Adventures Continue. The mask experience was a lot easier than we expected and everyone was wearing them.

        Relaxation Stations

        We love that Disney has added mask-free “Relaxation Stations” throughout the park. These small, roped-off areas allow guests to remove their masks and take a break. Cast members only allow a small number of guests in at a time to ensure that everyone is at a safe enough distance.

        Hollywood Studios’ Relaxation Stations can be found near the entrance of Rise of the Resistance and in the Animation Courtyard next to Star Wars Launch Bay. We recommend taking advantage of the station in Animation Courtyard as it is indoors with air conditioning.

        Ride Experience

        Queues

        The biggest difference found throughout the attraction queues are the new floor markers that indicate where each group should stand in order to be 6 feet apart. Most rides have even added plexiglass shields as an additional barrier in areas where the line wraps or is close together. 

        Safety Procedures

        Almost all of the cast members working the attractions were wearing plastic face shields in addition to their mask for added precaution. They were also regularly announcing any new procedures to ensure all guests were safe, such as standing 6 feet apart and keeping masks on.

        All attractions either had plexiglass shields in between rows or reserved, empty seats to separate guests. Ride vehicles are deep cleaned and sanitized by cast members every two hours. We recommend bringing your own sanitizing wipes if you would like some added reassurance before boarding rides, especially ones like Toy Story Mania that are high touch.

        Closures

        We were so excited to see that most of the attractions are open and running as usual. However, all shows will remain closed for the time being including For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration, Voyage of the Little Mermaid, Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular! and Beauty and the Beast – Live on Stage. Jedi Training will also not be available.

        Characters

        Sightings

        While character meet & greets are not currently available, there are still so many characters to see! Character cavalcades go throughout the park around every 20 to 30 minutes and feature characters from Disney Junior and Pixar as well as Mickey Mouse and friends.

        In Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge we also found characters, such as Kylo Ren and his StormTroopers, out for patrol on platforms located by the different starships in the area.

        Dining Experience

        Quick Service Restaurants/Mobile Ordering

        While Mobile Ordering on the Disney Experience app is not a new concept, it is now required for all Quick Service restaurants. This includes Backlot Express, Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo, PizzeRizzo, Ronto Roasters and Rosie’s All-American Cafe. The process is relatively quick and easy! After you select your restaurant and food, you are asked what time you would like to pick it up. A cast member will greet you and direct you to the correct pick-up window. Plenty of seating options are available and spaced out appropriately.

        Some Quick Service Restaurants, such as Woody’s Lunch Box and ABC Commissary, are remaining closed for now.

        Table Service Restaurants

        While some restaurants were offering walk-ins, we were told this will not be the case once the park opens to all guests tomorrow. It seems at that point, all table service restaurants will require a reservation made in advance. Hollywood Studios’ character dining experience, Hollywood & Vine, will remain closed for the time being.

        All of the restaurants have spaced their tables out six feet apart and will be utilizing paper menus. 

        Shopping

        Stores

        While some shops did remain closed there were still plenty of stores open in each of the lands to satisfy all of your merchandise needs! The stores have a capacity limit, and utilize a virtual queue once capacity has been reached. For the shops in Batuu cast members only allow one party in at a time to shop. 

        Markings and signage are found throughout the stores to inform shoppers of health procedures as well as which direction to walk in. Dressing rooms were blocked off and will remain closed for now. Similar to the rest of the park, plexiglass shields are located at all of the check-out counters and contactless payment is encouraged. 

        Overall, it was a dream to be back in the parks experiencing the Disney magic we have been longing for! While there were many changes from our last visit, we still thoroughly enjoyed our day and felt so fortunate to be part of the lucky Annual Passholders that could experience the day. Due to all of the new safety procedures and the Cast Members implementing them, we felt super safe as we explored the park in the “new normal”.
