April 29, 1994
We told you back in July that the resort would be reopening, and the day is finally here. Port Orleans Riverside has been closed since Disney World shut down in March of 2020 due to the global pandemic.
All Disney parks around the world are now open to visitors, though Covid-19 restrictions remain in place. Disneyland Resort in California reopened on April 30 with limited capacity at Disneyland park and Disney California Adventure park. … All three of the California Disney resort’s hotels are open.
Since our last update, Disney’s All-Star Music Resort, Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside, and Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter all reopened as scheduled. These were 3 of 4 major hotels scheduled to reopen in the last quarter of 2021.
For now, there is no official date.
This extended closure is Port Orleans longest ever. After opening in the early 1990s, Port Orleans only closed half of its rooms due to low tourism in the early 2000s. This time, the entire resort is closed and at least one of its famous attractions has closed forever.
Unfortunately, while it may look close on a map, it is a long way away and there is no walking path between Port Orleans and Epcot. In fact, there is no walking path from any Disney Moderate or Disney Value Resort to any theme park.
The walking distance between these two Disney Resort hotels is about 0.5 miles or 10 minutes, depending how fast you plan on walking.
Disney has already announced sellouts for December 5, December 7, December 9, December 12, December 17, December 19, and December 21. That leaves just five dates available– December 2, December 3, December 10, December 14, December 16– for the event in 2021 that are not already sold out.
Even with all of this, 2021 will likely bring a better Disney vacation experience overall than 2020. The more time that passes, the more things will be phased back in. Again, book a trip so you know you have the dates you want, and then wait and see. In fact, I already have a couple trips for 2021 booked!
Face coverings remain optional for all guests in outdoor common areas. There is no word yet on whether the company is considering easing the mask rules at Disneyland, too. The state of California also encourages — but does not require — guests to get tested or be fully vaccinated before entering.
Walt Disney World has announced that Typhoon Lagoon Water Park will reopen on January 2, 2022 after being closed for nearly two years. This post covers what to expect from the return, including new food and fun for the 50th Anniversary.

Disney World’s website has been updated to reflect the reopening date of three resorts. Among the updates, Disney’s Wilderness Lodge will officially reopen on June 6th, 2021! The official reopening dates for Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort and Disney’s Beach Club Resort have been updated too.

Overall, Riverside will have been closed for a total of 572 days, and French Quarter for 586 days, the longest period either resort has ever been shuttered in their history. All resort hotels will have re-opened in time for Christmas 2021.
Epcot is offering the perfect chocolate hazelnut filled beignet, at Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie, in the France Pavilion. … In the France pavilion, at Les Halle Boulangerie-Patisserie, you can also find other delectable and tempting treats as you would in a traditional French bakery.
In 2001, to try to eliminate the negative connotations associated with the Old South including a cotton mill that suggested the slavery of the pre-Civil War era as well as the word “Dixie” itself, the resort was formally merged into Disney’s Port Orleans resort to become Port Orleans Riverside.
Re: Boat ride to Magic Kingdom? No, Port Orleans is located on the Sassagoula River which leads to Disney Springs (to which there is a ferry boat ride) and a couple of other resorts, but there is no connecting waterway to any of the parks.
I just returned from a vacation at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort-French Quarter, and they do have elevators! I had a room on the second floor, but I often took the stairs, because I also ate beignets practically every day.
Riverside and French Quarter are connected by a walking path that runs along the Sassagoula River, a manmade canal. Allow about 10 minutes to walk from lobby to lobby.
Legal capacity of the park according to trip planning specialist Touring Plans is 90,000, so the 22,500 that is 25% of capacity is actually 39% of last year’s average attendance.
Yes! Park reservations open up all the time, either because people cancel or because Disney adds capacity that was withheld previously, or reallocates reservations between categories.
To enter a Walt Disney World theme park, each Guest must have: A theme park reservation—made via the Disney Park Pass system—along with valid park admission for the same park on the same day. Face coverings for Guests—please check face covering requirements.
Disney Park Reservations – Another huge change is the Disney World Park Pass reservation system. Reservations are required for theme park admission, so make sure your entrance is booked well in advance. If you would rather wait until these safety restrictions have passed, then we suggest not going in August 2021.
As the vice president of marketing strategy for Walt Disney World, Papalini led the team responsible for planning the momentous 50th anniversary celebration for the Orlando resort and entertainment juggernaut, a festival for millions of guests that kicked off on October 1 and runs through the end of 2022.
Most of the major changes apply to international travel and are thus beyond the scope of this post. However, there’s one domestic change that will impact you: the TSA mask mandate was extended until at least March 18, 2022. That’s not the only way your trip will be impacted.
Walt Disney World theme parks, water parks, ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex and Disney resort hotels are smoke-free environments except for designated smoking areas. … Smoking is not permitted in guest rooms or on balconies. Guests can request location information at the hotel Front Desk.

Welcome Back to Walt Disney World Resort
We encourage people to get vaccinated.
The water park, along with all the other Walt Disney World parks, closed in March 2020 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. … Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon reopened at the Walt Disney World Resort on January 2, 2022, after being closed over a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
