As the Disney World resort prepares to welcome back guests starting on July 11, they've released a ton of information on what park-goers can expect when visiting, but now, they've also shed some light on what staying at the resort's hotels will look like.

Disney announced that it will begin to re-open select Disney Deluxe Villa Resorts and Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground starting on June 22, ahead of the parks' official openings. Once the parks re-open, some of the remaining resort hotels are expected to open for existing reservations but are subject to closures, limited capacity, and other terms.

If and when you visit the hotels any time soon, Disney assured guests there will be enhanced safety protocols in place, like mask requirements for guests ages two and above, increased cleaning in high-traffic areas and high-touch surfaces, and double-cased pillows. Some services will also be unavailable, such as dressing rooms, in-room celebrations, and special classes and programs—including culinary, cultural, and animal programs.

They also recommend that you bring cashless payment and to use online check-in when you can. You should also read up on certain Disney-centric activities that will also look a bit different, such as pin-trading with cast members via pin boards rather than in person.

As USA TODAY pointed out, those visiting Florida from New York, New Jersey and Connecticut are currently required to quarantine for 14 days so guests coming from those areas should take this into account as well.
