Given the current situation, there are some resort hotels and other areas such as the water parks, that are not being scheduled for reopening yet. Disney continues to evaluate the situation and reopen more locations when the environment is right to do so.
As I understand the 2021 vacation packages for select Walt Disney World Good Neighbor Hotels will go on sale on June 28, 2020.
Vacation packages are valid for arrivals beginning Jan. 1, 2021. However, the end date of your vacation must be on or before Sept. 27, 2021. Disney Vacation Club Resorts are available for bookings 11 months out (currently through May 2021).
Normal terms and conditions for final payments, cancelations and change fees will apply for all 2021 vacation bookings.
Unfortunately, booking a 2021 package does not guarantee theme park availability, and you will need to make park reservations for arrivals starting in 2021 as our phased reopening continues. You will be able to view park reservation availability on DisneyWorld.com prior to purchasing theme park tickets, and you should book your park reservations immediately after linking your 2021 vacation package in the My Disney Experience app.
Disney Dining packages remain unavailable at this time. Favorite Grampy loves the dining plans. Hopefully, they will be added later.

Disney Gets Rid of MagicBans!
Favorite Grampy has a whole collection of MagicBands. But they may not be around forever.
Disney is exploring more ways for guests to use their mobile tech to experience the magic – particularly now as the use of phones and apps continues to evolve.
In 2021, Disney plans to unveil an innovative new offering as part of the My Disney Experience app that will bring features of a MagicBand to your smart devices, building on the app’s existing digital key feature.
With this new offering, Disney will be retiring their complimentary MagicBand distribution to Disney Resort hotel guests for new reservations with arrivals beginning Jan. 1, 2021.
Disney Resort hotel guests will continue to have the option to purchase new MagicBands at a discount, and Disney will be introducing even more colors and designs featuring favorite Disney characters in the future.
Guests who prefer not to purchase a discounted MagicBand will be able to use the My Disney Experience app or a Key to the World card during their visit.
Disney will still offer MagicBands in retail locations and on shopDisney.com, and guests will be able to continue using the wearables throughout Walt Disney World Resort.
