Walt Disney World Hotels Opening Dates (2022)

2022 Update: As of early 2022, all of the Disney hotels are now open with one exception. That exception is the All-Star Sports Resort. All-Star Sports is scheduled to re-open on March 30, 2022.

During its downtime, All-Stars Sports has undergone a room refurbishment. Rooms are expected to resemble the ones that were introduced at Disney’s Pop Century a few years back.

In other resort news, Disney’s Contemporary is undergoing a refurbishment. The rooms in the tower are receiving an Incredibles makeover. I’ll have an update when more specifics are disclosed.

Additionally, when the Polynesian reopens on July (19th), it will have new guest rooms. If you missed it, we had a preview of the new Moana-themed rooms here a few weeks back. Compared to the current rooms at the Polynesian, I think these will be a huge improvement while adding a touch of Disney to the resort.
