Disney has just announced they’re moving forward with plans to reopen parts of Disney Spring in less than two weeks!
After Disney World closed as a safety precaution for guests, Disney Springs followed suit by shutting down its stores and restaurants. Now we’ve just learned Disney plans to open a limited number of locations during what they’re referring to as “the initial phase.”
Following the guidance of government and health officials, some third-party operators in Disney Springs will be re-opening to the public on May 20th while the rest of Walt Disney World Resort will remain closed until further notice including theme parks and hotels.
According to Disney, “Disney Springs will begin to reopen in a way that incorporates enhanced safety measures, including increased cleaning procedures, the use of appropriate face coverings by both cast members and guests, limited-contact guest services, and additional safety training for cast members.”
Disney Springs will have capacity limitations when it opens as well as reduced parking and operating hours.
Additional safety measures and procedures may be announced at a later time which Disney will provide on DisneySprings.com as May 20th approaches. This information will potentially include which stores and restaurants will be re-opening along with their operating hours and safety procedures.
This will be the first Disney World location to reopen. Disney has also announced that Shanghai Disneyland will reopen on May 11th with new health measures as well. You can learn more about the reopening of Shanghai Disneyland here.
