Disney Springs Begins Phased Reopening on May 20
A phased reopening of Disney Springs will begin on May 20. Following the guidance of government and health officials, a limited number of shopping and dining experiences that are owned by third-party operating participants will begin to open during this initial phase. The rest of Walt Disney World® Resort will remain closed, including theme parks and resort hotels.
As Disney continues to monitor conditions, and with the health of Guests and Disney Cast Members at the forefront of their planning, they are making several operational changes. 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 will apply learnings and ideas from leaders in the health and travel industries, and they are also talking to their unions as they prepare for some Cast Members to return to work.
During the initial opening phase, Disney Springs will have limitations on capacity, parking and operating hours. Given this unprecedented situation, Disney appreciates everyone’s patience and understanding as they navigates through this process as responsibly as they can. Additional protocols and procedures may be announced closer to the opening date.
