Florida’s Walt Disney World Resort has officially been closed for 67 days, and those of us who are big Disney fans have been anxiously awaiting to hear when it will reopen. We were given a glimmer of hope earlier this month as Disney announced plans to restore operations beginning with Orlando’s Disney Springs, their themed retail, dining and entertainment area, formerly known as Downtown Disney. On May 20, over 40 third-party shops and restaurants in the complex opened their doors once again.
However, as with everything else these days, things are not business as usual. Planning to visit Disney Springs in the near future? Here is what you can expect:

At this point, there is still no official announcement about when resort hotels, restaurants or theme parks will reopen. While the strict requirements for reopening Disney Springs has not been well-received by all, we can assume that when the time comes to re-open other Disney properties, policies and procedures similar to what we see here may be implemented. Disney has continually expressed that the safety of their cast members and guests are their main focus, and we believe they will not jeopardize their reputation just because people may be uncomfortable with temperature checks or making their kids wear a mask. While we don’t know what requirements are coming, we do know Disney isn’t afraid to do what is necessary to promote safety. Even if it means less people in their parks in the near future.
If you are thinking about heading to Disney this year, be sure to figure the current requirements and possible future safety regulations into your planning. You can check out DisneySprings.com/reopening for the most up to date information on the reopening. And check back here with us too! Travel Greene will post updates as Disney makes official announcements along the way. Using the latest details we are happy to help you plan your next Disney vacation, whenever that may be.
