Not too long ago, we shared the news about several Disney restaurant reopenings and buffet updates, and now we’ve got an exciting update about one Disney Springs spot!
Hamilton has made its way to Disney+ (and our holiday weekend plans are to eat some pie and watch the musical on repeat).
Although July 4th is a holiday to celebrate, it’s also a great time to give back to communities who have been affected by our current situation. And, a few Disney affiliates are teaming together to provide a HUGE donation to those in need!
In our efforts to keep you as informed as possible with which Disney Springs restaurants will be reopening on May 20th, we’re also keeping you in the loop with those that are not.
Today, a representative from Jaleo by José Andrés told us they are currently formulating a plan for their tentative reopening which is “still to be determined.”
Three cheers for Chef José Andrés!
We love hearing about people stepping up to help others during these difficult times. And celebrity chef, José Andrés, the owner of Jaleo and Pepe in Disney Springs, has done just that! He has temporarily converted several of his locations into community kitchens to assist those in need of affordable meals. But he’s going a step further to thank doctors and nurses for their hard work!
Disney has brought a smile to our face in a lot of ways over the last few weeks. Whether it’s reading us bedtime stories or streaming live on Facebook, Disney performers and celebrities have come into our homes digitally in ways that have brought some joy to these uncertain times. But these aren’t the only ways they’re making us smile.
There has been so much GOOD NEWS to celebrate coming from this crisis. Therefore, we want to share seven of our favorite stories with you today!
While it isn’t hard to find ways to spoil yourself at Disney World (we’re talkin’ ice cream for breakfast, riding Pirates of the Caribbean over and over again…) we just discovered a new dining experience that will be coming soon to Disney World!
And if this dinner is as off-the-chain as it sounds, it’s going to be one VERY cool experience, indeed!
Hello again from Jaleo in Disney Springs!! We have found ourselves back for more tapas, paella, and sangria! They’re just so good we couldn’t resist.

Like I said, we enjoyed Jaleo on opening night, but with such a large menu, we were excited to finally go back and try new items!
