Disney just released its plan for reopening the Disney Club Level room option this fall.

Disney Club Level is offered at select Disney resorts and offers some perks, heightened service and — most notably — access to the Club Level lounge at your resort. When Disney World first began its phased opening plans, Disney Club lounges remained closed. But thankfully, guests can start making reservations for Club Level rooms and suites on June 4, 2021, for stays at select resorts in the fall.

As with most steps of Disney World’s reopening that dates back to last summer, not all of the Disney’s Club Levels will reopen at once. Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa will be the first to open its Royal Palm Club on Sept. 16, 2021. And other resorts are set to follow throughout September and December.

Here’s a snapshot of the reopening dates released by Disney:

There will be changes implemented to promote social distancing measures, and you’ll be required to wear a face mask. Of course, September is a long time out, so policies could change between now and then based on guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Club Level lounges will still serve exclusive food and drinks throughout the day, but keep in mind that some of the perks associated with Disney Club Level aren’t currently available. Previously, Club Level gave you access to three extra FastPass+ reservations for $50 per person, but FastPass isn’t currently available for any guests.

The price differential for a Club Level room from a similar room without club access varies pretty dramatically throughout the year based on demand, but you can usually expect to pay at least a couple hundred dollars more per night for Club Level.

That’s a Disney-level premium for convenience, but if you are able to regularly grab your family’s breakfast, drinks, snacks and even a light evening meal with desserts from the lounge, then you can make up some of the additional spendings with savings in other areas.
