Capacity will be limited and not all restaurants may be open. Wiping the slate clean and reducing how far out you can book lets them better control capacity as fairly as possible (rather than randomly canceling only some reservations).Has Disney given a reason for this? I spent HOURS making these reservations for our October trip and they were wiped out.
Was wondering about that...my Hoop De Doo reservations were cancelled but no refund posted yet..UGH! We rescheduled our April trip to October and now feeling like maybe we might reschedule again for spring. We are a party of nine and like to have one nice sit down meal everyday. Worrying about our ability to do so with new reservation system.Haven't gotten an email at all...neither has the other emails in the parties going with us.
But Hoop De Doo reservations have been cancelled. Refund hasn't posted yet but in April it took a few days after cancellations/paid in advance stuff to be credited back.
It seems too soon to cancel plans when they're unsure if there will be a change. Those of us who had reservations will not have priority.Capacity will be limited and not all restaurants may be open.

They ARE SURE there will be a change. As they stated, all restaurants may not be open, and capacity will be limited. Rather than them randomly cancelling some and leaving others intact,when they don't know yet the capacity and which restaurants will be open, They MUST cancel all and start from scratch when they can determine what restaurants they will allow reservations for, and what capacity. When it is safe, or perhaps before it is safe, they will increase capacity, and open more restaurants for reservations. Keep in mind, there will not be buffets or character meet & greets either. You may be mad or bitter about it, but that does not change it. If you still want to go, you have to start all over for dining reservations 60 days out at whatever restaurants are open and what they have. Be prepared to not get all you want, and many or the restaurants you want not being open or available. Or you can cancel, and go after a vaccine is developed, and long enough for WDW to be fully open. Some things may be gone, or changed permanently. Prepare yourself for it.It seems too soon to cancel plans when they're unsure if there will be a change. Those of us who had reservations will not have priority.
Who did you ask and when? Why would you NOT believe what WDW itself put on their website? That will give you the most accurate and up-to-date info. And even that they change, so checking frequently keeps you most informed.I specifically asked and I was told they are NOT sure there will be any changes for October.
