In just a few days Disney Springs will officially reopen in a very limited capacity, as a number of third-party shopping and dining locations like Chicken Guy!, Blaze Pizza, Planet Hollywood, Earl of Sandwich, The Polite Pig, Wolfgang Puck Bar and Grill,  STK Orlando, Wine Bar George, and other favorites will begin welcoming guests once again on May 20th. 

However, it looks like Disney Springs is looking to open more Disney-owned shops and eateries in the near future, as it has been confirmed that the World of Disney store, D-Luxe Burger (for mobile orders only) the Marketplace Co-Op, and other Disney-owned locations will reopen on May 27th. However, as more locations are getting ready to open, Disney has laid out what kind of restrictions they are putting in place to keep guests as safe as possible during their visit to the shopping and dining destination. 

1. Masks and temperature checks will be required

Like next-door neighbor Universal CityWalk, all guests visiting Disney Springs must wear a mask during their entire visit to the shopping and dining district (except when eating). If a guest does not have a face covering, Disney has said that they may be able to provide a temporary mask, but such a measure is not guaranteed and guests could be turned away.

In addition to the mask-wearing requirement, Disney has said that temperature checks for all visiting guests will be required upon arrival. Any guest with a temperature reading of 100.4 degrees or greater will not be admitted to Disney Springs, and their entire party will be asked to leave as well. Likewise, all Cast Members will also undergo temperature checks and those with a temperature of 100.4 degrees or greater will not be permitted to work.

2. Limited entry and exit points

Disney will also be strictly controlling how guests enter and exit Disney Springs, with only four entry and exit points available for guests to use :

  • Orange Parking Garage
  •  Lime Parking Garage
  • Hotel Plaza Boulevard Pedestrian Bridge
  • Rideshare area

As of right now there will be no guest access to Disney Springs available from the Grapefruit garage or any surface parking lots.Valet parking will also not be available.  



We will not attend until masks are optional to wear! Disney needs to provide proof that the masks protect me from getting sick! I don’t care that people wear the masks just don’t make it a requirement.

My family and I will not be visiting Disney Springs with these restrictions in place. We don't want to ruin the Disney experience we've known and loved. Plus the masks can actually be harmful to your own health when worn for extended periods of time.
