Even though Disney Springs started it phased reopening on May 20th, a boatload of businesses have opened up since our last visit!
We’ve also spotted a ton of new merch and eaten a bunch of new tasty treats, too! Come and take a look at everything that’s new at Disney Springs with us!
Disney Springs is really pumpin’ into high gear now that so many more stores have opened their doors!
Disney Springs Reopening Update
Disney Springs Stores:
Ever After Jewelry Co. & Accessories
We were starting to go through some serious Alex and Ani bracelets, Pandora charms, Loungefly backpacks, and Dooney & Bourke withdrawals, but that will all change now that Ever After Jewelry Co. & Accessories has reopen!
We spotted a bunch of goodies we can’t wait to make a second pass at, but you won’t believe how many shops reopened yesterday in Disney Springs! It’s like a whole new world has opened up!
Goofy’s Candy Company
Our day at Disney Springs got even SWEETER when we saw Goofy’s Candy Company’s doors had reopened!
They’re still selling prepackaged candy as well as their self-serve bulk candy but their Create-Your-Own candy offerings are currently unavailable to guests. You CAN still get your Goofy Glaciers, although Boozy Goofy’s Glaciers aren’t back on the menu quite yet.
Goofy’s wasn’t the only spot slangin’ candy yesterday! We noticed the Candy Cauldron was also bubblin’ and brewing after being dormant since last March!
While Candy Cauldron isn’t making anything in-house right now, they are having fresh Candy Apples, Mickey Krispy Treats, and Cookies brought in daily!
Days of Christmas
We can’t wait until its the holiday season at Disney World, and luckily we no longer have to! Inside this specialty Disney Springs store, every day is Christmas!
We could stay in here and pick out our favorite Christmas ornaments for hours, but we better press on!
Sadly, Pin Traders isn’t doing any pin trading at the moment or selling any new limited edition pins…
…but we’re still happy to see it open, anyways! It was well stocked with Pop vinyls, MagicBands, and oh yeah, LOTS of PINS!
Star Wars Galactic Outpost and Marvel Superhero Headquarters
Avengers and Star Wars fans can assemble once more now that their favorite shops have reopened!
Both Star Wars Galactic Outpost and Marvel Superhero Headquarters have opened their doors once more!
You can never have enough Thanos Mugs or Ewok Plush, so we’re thrilled we can finally start adding to our collections again! We did, however, notice the build-your-own-lightsabers were a no-go for now!
The Art of Disney and Wonderful World of Memories
The Art of Disney has also reopened along with the adjacent Wonderful World of Memories gift shop!
We saw plenty of signed limited edition prints, BIG FIGS, and a bunch of other collectibles we wouldn’t mind selling our cars for! 😉
Now that we’re finally out and about for the first time in months, we can’t wait to add some new Disney fashions to our sweatpants routine! Now we can since DisneyStyle has reopened!
And guess what? You can still sit in the teacup!! We were super-curious, so we asked!
We’ve been trying to scratch our chocolate itch for months, and The Ganachery’s chocolate squares FINALLY hit the spot!
Just in time to get your dad or grad a card, LovePop is now open!
Man, we love ourselves some LovePop cards because they always seem to express how we’re feeling in not only two but THREE dimensions!
Disney Springs Restaurants:
City Works Eatery & Pour House
They’re offering a limited menu (which is printed on paper) while you can view their current selection of beers on their website. They told us they hope to have their Weekday Happy Hour and Rock N’Roll Brunch up and runnin’ again soon!
Raglan Road and Shop
You can now get your Fish and Chips, Bangers and Mash, and Irish soda bread (along with plenty of ale to wash them down with!) every day from 4PM-10PM!
We sampled their Watermelon Margarita just ’cause we were thirsty (it’s on their permanent menu!).
And after mysteriously closing down almost a week ago, we noticed that Planet Hollywood had opened — yet again!
We’re not sure why the restaurant has been closed the last few days since reopening, but everything seemed to be the new normal!
Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill
And if you’ll recall, Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill had also unexpectedly shuttered itself for the last few days.
But its employees are now back and guests are dining at Wolfgang’s Disney Springs digs once more!
Vivoli il Gelato
Guess who’s back in da house! Vivoli il Gelato! The gelateria began scooping up delicious gelatos and serving up cannolis again on Tuesday!
But that’s not the only hot spot to find a cool treat at Disney Springs right now!
Vivoli il Gelato Cart
That’s right — it’s baby bro the Vivoli il Gelato Cart is also open!
We spotted another one of our favorite rolling “snacks on wheels” spots is reopening too!
Cookie Dough and Everything Sweet Food Truck
We’re still waiting on the other food trucks to reopen, but they’re parked at Disney Springs’ Exposition Park as we speak, and poised to reopen any day now!
Disney Springs Food Update
We managed to squeeze in a quick visit to Starbucks to try there new Campfire Cold Brew and Picnic Punch!
Joffrey’s Coffee and Tea Company at The Landing
The barista we spoke to said they should have it in stock through June 28th!
Vivoli il Gelato
And what could be better than a milkshake that comes topped with a cupcake? How about this new seasonal Strawberry Shortcake Bombolato for $9.50!
Believe it or not, this Italian donut is stuffed with the same cake batter gelato, and then topped with fresh strawberries and a drizzle of strawberry sauce!
We also had the chance to tuck into the new Chicken Parm Sandwich — a special menu item at Pizza Ponte for $9.50!
The freshly-baked bread was the real stand-out for us, but the sandwich itself packed a lot of flavor!
We also made our way to Ghirardelli Soda Fountain & Chocolate Shop for their new Nacho Sundae for $14.50!
It includes three scoops of your choice of ice cream on top of Cinnamon Sugar Pita Chips, all covered with whipped cream and a sprinkling of nuts! This one was a home run for us!
Disney Springs Merchandise Update
What’s that in the sky? Is it a bird? Is it a PLANE?? Nope — it’s Baby Yoda BALLOON!
Disney Springs is now selling Mickey Balloons AND Baby Yoda Balloons — and we couldn’t be more PUMPED!
We also spied a bunch of new Ink & Paint D-Tech Phone Cases at the Marketplace Co-Op!
It’s not every day we get to see a Mr. Toad Phone Case, so we were very pleased with this recent development. Toady’s finally comin’ up in the world!
We also spotted a gorgeous new Castle MagicBand for $24.99!
How many days is it until we can stand in the hub and gaze up at Cindy’s Castle IRL? We’re so excited!
World of Disney
A bunch of new Monsters University merch has marched its way into World of Disney today! We’ll definitely be picking some of these items up to give as grad gifts!
And how cool is this new Neon Yellow MagicBand for$14.99! Its color is so vibrant and HAPPY! We can’t help but smile when we look at it!
We also found this Haunted Mansion Park Pal for $11.99 lurking around World of Disney! We’ve seen it online before, but it’s even more spine-tingling in person!
The new Rainbow Ear Hat Collection Ornament for $24.99 also brightened our day!
And to go with all our new fluorescent fashions, we scored this new Neon Mickey Plush Purse for $24.99!
There’s no shortage of new gear at World of Disney lately, but we also discovered a couple new finds in Disney Springs over the last few days too!
The Polite Pig
At The Polite Pig, they’ve restocked their branded face masks!
Of course, we only know this because we went sniffing around for more of their delicious Pork Rinds!
Chapel Hats was branching out yesterday! They had a stylish Sequin Face Mask and an American Flag Face Covering for sale!
Both of the styles were $14.99! Of course, they had plenty of HATS as well!
Not sure about you guys, but we could use a little lay-down after that MASSIVE What’s New! Turns out the last few days have been like the Resnaisannce here at Disney Springs with A LOT of shops awakening! On that note, this concludes our roundup of what’s been going on at Disney Springs, but we’ll be back soon with more updates for you in just a little bit!
