Disney Springs At The Walt Disney World Resort Is Now Open
Disney Springs at the Walt Disney World Resort is now open and waiting to welcome you back to the magic. Over the past few month, a gradually phased reopening of shops and restaurants have been underway and with the opening of such well known Disney owned stores and eateries such as World of Disney, TrenD, D-Luxe Burger as well as all of your other favorites, here’s what you need to know about Disney Springs at the Walt Disney World Resort.
Disney Springs NOW Open
Disney is now reopened with dining and shopping with new restrictions to prevent the spread of COVID-19. While Disney World’s theme parks and hotels remain closed, the company calls the Disney Springs’ Wednesday reopening a “welcome milestone.”
Guests will notice some changes at the Orlando-area complex, which implemented a number of health and safety measures based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other health authorities. For example, all Cast Members and guests over the age of three must wear face coverings, and everyone must undergo temperature screenings. Disney Springs will also limit the number of guests visiting the property, as well as within each location. The district even installed barriers in some areas where it’s difficult to maintain physical distancing.
“We’ve got an incredible group of Cast Members here circulating throughout the property to assist [guests] in this way. It’s a really exciting time here,” Disney Springs vice president Matt Simon. It’s an encouraging first step for Disney fans who are counting the days for the resort to fully reopen after shutting down in mid-March because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Disney Springs is now open from 10:00 am. until 10 p.m. with a majority of the stores and restaurants in the complex now welcoming back guests, and they might have adjusted their usual hours of operation.
As of May 27, Disney-owned shops such as the World of Disney which features all manner of souvenirs, the Marketplace Co-op and D-Luxe Burger, which will offer mobile ordering.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT WHEN I ARRIVE?
Increased mobile food ordering options will be available, and cashless transactions will be encouraged throughout. Character meet & greets and play areas will remain temporarily closed but there are still magical surprises.
