Disney Springs is set to begin a phased reopening on Wednesday 20th May, a somewhat controversial move that is explained in full by the Vice President, Disney Springs Matt Simon over at Disney Parks Blog.

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 we continue to monitor conditions, and with the health of guests and Disney cast members at the forefront of our planning, we 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.

We will apply learnings and ideas from leaders in the health and travel industries, and we’re also talking to our unions as we prepare for some cast members to return to work.

Simon explains that there will be limits on capacity, parking and opening hours with more news to follow. It’s also worth noting that the actual parks remained closed until further notice.
