June 23, 2020

Some of Disney’s Vacation Club properties, such as Bay Lake Tower and Copper Creek Villas,  as well as Fort Wilderness, officially began welcoming guests yesterday (June 22). Others, such as Disney’s Vero Beach Resort in Florida and Disney’s Hilton Head Island Resort in South Carolina began saying “Welcome Home” on June 15. The Swan and Dolphin opens its doors to travelers July 29, and will also serve as home base for a variety of major league soccer players during July’s MLS tournaments. And the Grand Floridian, Gran Destino Tower at Coronado Springs, and the Yacht Club will all be playing host to the NBA players and their entourages, with their games beginning on July 31.
