Why I Have Booked Walt Disney World For 2021

Why I Have Booked Walt Disney World For 2021

Disclaimer: Disney has sponsored Mickey From The UK with it's 2021 'Wish You Were Here' free nights offer (as you can see from the ads around the site), but it has no impact on the content of this article. I pay for my Disney trips the same as everybody else.


My September 2020 Walt Disney World trip was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. So were many others, perhaps even yours. This has now been the longest period of time in over a decade I've not been to Orlando (I know, first world problems), and to say I have the itch to go back would be an understatement. Although at the moment we can't go anyway due to government restrictions and our airlines being mostly grounded, but we all want to look ahead to when we can go again.

Sure, there are no dining plans (which isn't the end of the world), there is the park reservation system (not ideal, but we can adapt), and even though park hopping is back starting 2021 (sort of), reports coming from the parks today say it's still a great experience, even with some things being cut. Many people do argue they aren't "paying full price for half an experience", but keep in mind Disney can change this at a moment's notice. They could announce that tomorrow they can go back to full capacity and the park reservation system is scrapped! That might just be naive optimism talking, though. However, you don't how things will be tomorrow. Booking on a date isn't a bad idea right now, even if the parks aren't how you want them to be today.

With the vaccine rollout starting at the end of 2020 and into early 2021, the light at the end of the tunnel is near. When the vulnerable and high risk is vaccinated, governments around the world will be pushing hard to get economies open and moving again.

There is still much uncertainty, and it can be hard to commit to a date. However, when things start to look like they're heading back to a more normal state, demand is going to go up. And so might prices. So, I have decided to book a two-week stay at Coronado Springs (haven't stayed there before) for September 2021, mainly because it's virtually risk-free at this stage.

Disney's current free nights offer is quite compelling. Up to 4 free resort nights, the $200 gift card, but the main selling point right now is the cancellation policy. You can cancel or amend your holiday up to 7 days before you go. I just paid a £100 deposit (£50pp). For me, it's a no brainer to lock in this offer and dates now, do my park reservations for those days, and hope for the best. If I change my mind, I'll just cancel it and get my money back. No sweat.

Even though it's still a way off, it's something to look forward to, even if the near future is unclear.
