If you haven’t heard, we’re at Disney Springs to see what’s changed as it reopens from its multi-month closure.
Almost 50 Disney Springs locations, restaurants and shops, opened with the complex today and we’ve been checking in with a bunch of our favorites. We’ve stopped by Frontera Cocina, The Boathouse, and more; but there’s one retail location that we’re particularly interested in stopping by. How exactly does a SOAP STORE focus on cleanliness? That’s right, we’re headed to Basin!
Basin is a store in Disney Springs with a wide variety of bath and body products — namely, some really cool soaps. Prior to the closures, the name of the game here was touching all of the soap and body product samples. Have things changed now that there’s a focus on handwashing and refraining from touching things? Let’s see!
We were welcomed in by a masked greeter at the door who is there to control capacity. Like many Disney Springs locations, there are markers on the ground outside for when the store is full and guests need to distance in the queue.
The store looks pretty much the same on the inside. Guests are asked to keep handling products to a minimum.
Distancing is also encouraged with guests asked to remain six feet away from other parties.
Still, you CAN handle the product! You can smell all of the bath bombs, soaps, etc.
The handwashing stations in the center of the store were clean and samples are still available. You will throw away the stick used for the product once you’re done with it. These sinks are touchless and napkins are available as well.
This station is another way to get in some of that regular handwashing when you’re not near the handwashing stations outside.
They did still have baskets out to help you carry your new product too. We couldn’t tell if they are sanitizing the handles between guests.
Speaking of sanitizing, Basin actually had a deal on a 3-pack of premium hand sanitizer.
You can snag the 3-pack for $20.
The check-out queue had some distancing stickers on the ground. As usual, it’s one party per sticker.
As you can see, all of the Basin employees had masks on too.
So, as you can see, Basin is still allowing guests to interact with the product as they did before the closure in the store and overall the location is still pretty hands-on.
We’re checking in at a LOT more Disney Springs locations today, so keep following along at DFB for all the updates!
