Disney Springs to re-open May 20th


As the world slowly begins to recover due to the effects of COVID-19, Disney is planning a phased opening of Disney Springs in accordance with appropriate government policies. Disney is happy to welcome back guests, cast members and third party vendors at this time while keeping safety and the well being of everyone at the forefront of all their planning efforts. With that in mind, theses are the new safety protocols in place:

  • Guests will be directed to park in the Orange and Lime garages with all surface parking remaining closed. Rideshares along with the Hotel Plaza pedestrian bridge, will remain open
  • All guests and employees will undergo temperature screenings. Anyone found with a temperature higher than 100.4, them and their party, will not be allowed to enter
  • Masks will be required. Guests are required to bring their own and wear them at all times except when dining.
  • Physical barriers have been added and guests are expected to adhere to strict social distancing measures, signage and ground markings are in place to assist

By visiting Disney Springs you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.

As this is a phased opening, Disney has additionally announced that Disney owned shops and restaurants such as the World of Disney and the Marketplace Co-Op, will not open until May 27th. Here is a list of shops expected to open on the 20th:
