Reopening Walt Disney World During Covid-19

Updated September 9, 2020

I visited Walt Disney World when it reopened on July 11, 2020.

It was a trip like no other!

My intention with sharing my experience in this post and several others is to show you what Disney Parks and Resorts look like right now.

I’m not here to talk you into visiting.

I’m not here to tell you to stay home.

My job as a blogger is to share relevant information so that you can decide if the time is right to visit Walt Disney World.

Let’s take a look at what you need to know.

Air Travel

I flew from San Diego to Orlando with a total of four flights in my itinerary.

This post details air travel during COVID-19.

Walt Disney World Theme Parks

I visited all four parks during my trip.

This post shares everything you need to know about the theme park experience.

Walt Disney World Resorts

I spent 6 nights at Disney’s Pop Century Resort.

Go here for details on what has changed – and remained the same – at Disney Resorts.


While in Orlando, I tested several masks to see what works best for long days in the heat.

Would I Visit Again During COVID-19?


In fact, as soon as I got home, I booked my trip for October and December of 2020.

For the best discounts, concierge service, complimentary price monitoring, and so much more, contact the only travel agency I recommend, Get Away Today. They’ve been planning trips for over 30 years now. And, they’re the first agency Disneyland partnered with! Get Away Today books 3-4 trips to WDW each year for me as well as many long weekends at Disneyland.

This link gets you started with a no-obligation quote.

Price Monitoring is a huge advantage you’ll receive with Get Away Today. This email came in recently for my December trip:

If you are ready to travel, Walt Disney World might be a good option for you. There’s a lot to know, however, so definitely book your trip with a trusted agent who has been to WDW during COVID-19. (My contact at Get Away Today, linked above, has been twice since July 2020 when the parks reopened.)

  1. Hello, I watched your Instagram on WDW and noticed you showed some parade footage. On the Disney website it says there are no parades. Are they happening randomly? Or not happening at all? Thank you for all your information!

  2. I went to the Shop Disney website to check out the masks. They all had 1 to 1 1/2 star reviews, but I was unable to pull up what the reviews actually said. I have trouble breathing through a mask due to lifelong sinus problems, so I look for masks that are easiest to breathe through (probably like everybody). I can’t stand breathing warm/hot air, like under covers in bed. Do you recommend the Disney masks for me?
