We went to Disney Springs yesterday on the first day of reopening after the March closing of the parks, resorts and Disney Springs for COVID-19. The parks are not open yet, but Universal Studios is now likely opening in the first week of June, so I expect we will hear on Walt Disney World soon too. But for now, Disney Springs is opening in phases – though it was a pretty big step yesterday with over 40 stores and restaurants opening. More are opening now, and tomorrow we’ll see Morimoto Asia, Pizza Ponte and Vivoli il Gelato open. And on May 27th, World of Disney and more will also be available for guests.
Masks are required, as is social distancing. We went in the morning, and I’ve been asked often since the visit if masks were enforced. It wasn’t needed in the morning because most people had them on. Later in the day – after we left – I’ve heard it wasn’t so enforced and hopefully that changes quickly. It was only the first day. Here are photos and information about yesterday.
