With the parks at Disney World preparing to close amid coronavirus concerns, some Disney Springs locations are still considering next steps.
As of press time, Disney Springs will remain open during the park closure, but some individual locations are still choosing to temporarily shut their doors. Some stores have announced that they will be temporarily closed and House of Blues is cancelling several scheduled events. Another location that might be impacted is the Spanish restaurant, Jaleo.
Jaleo is run by Chef José Andrés. Today, he announced on both his website and Instagram that all of his restaurants in the Washington D.C. area and New York City will be temporarily closing due to the coronavirus as of March 15th. For the time being, these restaurants will be repurposed as “community kitchens” with affordable take-out meals available for purchase.
At this time, Chef José is still deciding whether Jaleo in Disney Springs will be affected. The company plans to make a decision on this location as well as their Las Vegas restaurant shortly.
We will continue to keep an eye on any changes and we’ll provide updates as soon as they’re available!
