While we have been on the ground over the past several weeks covering the ongoing phased reopening of eateries and shops in Walt Disney World’s Disney Springs, we have some very recent closures to report as well.
Earlier today, the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation announced that on-premise consumption at bars or businesses that “derive more than 50 percent of gross revenue from the sale of alcoholic beverages” is now banned in Florida, effective immediately.
In light of the new order, one popular spot to grab a cold cocktail — Dockside Margaritas in the Marketplace — closed down this afternoon until further notice. Dockside Margaritas joins Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar — which had just reopened yesterday — in closing. In fact, we happened to be strolling by as the service windows were being shuttered.
We’ll be keeping you posted on further developments in both Disney Springs and the rest of Walt Disney World as the Resort has also reopened select hotels to guests as of this past Monday, June 22nd.
