After two months of closures, Walt Disney World is turning a corner with its first phase of reopening. Beginning Wed., May 20, guests can return to Disney Springs!

The initial opening will include a variety of shops and restaurants, with more scheduled to open Wed., May 27. As with the rest of the country, the opening will include restrictions based on local health and government agency guidelines.

New safety measures will be in place to protect guests, cast members and third party operators. Guests can expect to see reduced entrances, limited parking and changes in hours. Additionally, face coverings will be required for everyone over the age of three, and physical distancing will be a focus.

Disney will also be conducting temperature screenings prior to entry, and anyone with a fever over 100.4 (or anyone in their party) will not be admitted. Finally, you’ll see plenty of additional hand sanitizer and hand washing stations scattered through Disney Springs as we all seek to stay healthy.

For more details, head to Disney Springs.
