How far in advance is Disney cancelling reservations for their resorts and DVC? For example, do they communicate with guests every Monday as they go week by week? And where are they up to at this point?

Seems to be variable. People have been contacted through to end of May, but I know some who still have active reservations for May 20.

We got our May trip cancelled in phases. We had our first round of notification of 2 evening cancelled ADR's about 1 month prior to our trip. Then that was followed up 8 days later by the cancellation of our reserved after hours event and several more ADR's. Then the entire trip reservation cancellation notice for the resort stay, AK tour, and the rest of our ADR's 2 days later.

We’re struggling with this. We have a long DVC trip in the first half of July (1-5 and 10-18) and we are assuming it will be canceled, but we haven’t canceled it yet because of the cruise in the middle... which we are hoping will be canceled. We don’t want to cancel the cruise because we’ve paid in full and won’t get much back if we cancel at this point. We probably should just cancel the rooms before and after, but we’re waiting another week or two.
OP, are you waiting for a reservation to be canceled?

I would think DVC resorts will be open by July. In fact I think they may well open a couple of weeks before the parks. I can see why you would want to cancel if the cruise is cancelled though.

Who are you cruising with? I thought DCL were offering 125% credit against the next 18 months. Is that only if DCL cancel the cruise?

We’re scheduled on the Dream July 5-10. I’m pretty sure the 125% credit applies only if DCL cancels. And I think they were being flexible early on with cancellations, but now that they canceled so many standard cancellation policies apply.
We’re likely to cancel the DVC rooms in the next couple weeks. We’ve got a large group and it’s a lot of points. They can be banked for next year and we can try again. The cruise is stressful though.

Fingers crossed for you that you can cancel and re-plan for later. 🤞

DCL is now cancelling through July 27th, so I presume you'll be getting notified soon.

Yes, May 31-June 6 reservations were just cancelled
Yep. I was cancelled last week for the week of May 25. Well, can't let the week of May 25 go to waste. I'm going to the beach instead. (It's a family beach condo. I'll make it work.)

And someone just posted on Touring Plans their June 6th - 13th stay was just cancelled.
I'm in block out territory with my Silver AP now. Besides, it's getting too hot. So I'm trying again for mid October.
