Disney Springs will begin a phased re-opening on May 20! According to the Disney Parks Blog, only third party vendors will begin operating at this time – meaning that the World of Disney store and other Disney-operated vendors will remain closed. We don’t yet know which third-party stores and restaurants will be open.
Of course like any other business, there will be an increased focus on cleanliness, sanitation, and social distancing. While a full list of updated policies and procedures will be released later in the month, we have received confirmation both cast and guests will be required to wear face coverings.
The blog also stated, “During the initial opening phase, Disney Springs will have limitations on capacity, parking and operating hours. Given this unprecedented situation, we appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding as we navigate through this process as responsibly as we can. Additional protocols and procedures may be announced closer to the opening date. Please check DisneySprings.com as we get closer to May 20 for the most current information on operating hours, locations and safety procedures.”
