PHOTOS: Disney Springs is Looking Particularly Quiet Today!

Disney Springs began its phased reopening this week with limited capacity, reduced hours, and new health and safety protocols at many of its third-party restaurants and stores.

And, while we took you live with us at the re-pening and shared the things that surprised us, we’re back at Disney Springs today. And we’ve noticed that crowds are very low!

Although we saw a decent amount of people visiting Disney Springs on its reopening on Wednesday, the shopping and dining district was particularly uninhabited today.

While this can be expected since many people are getting used to places like Disney Springs and Universal CityWalk reopening during this time, it’s still surprising to us for such a popular Disney World destination to be so silent. We are curious to see what crowd levels will be like once Disney-owned stores and restaurants begin reopening on May 27th.

With or without visitors, places across Disney Springs are still making sure to follow new procedures to keep Cast Members and guests safe.

But, we did spot one place where there was a small crowd of people! Yet again, Vera Bradley had a line to get in at the shopping center.

  1. Springs isn’t really a tourist destination by itself. If I weren’t at Disney I doubt I would go there to eat at overpriced restaurants and shop in stores I have at home. Then add the mask requirement in the sweltering heat, the pointless temp check and their warning that your dining reservation is useless if Springs is at capacity…yeah, not going to draw people in. If I were in FL, I would go somewhere that offered a more pleasant experience. Even if a mall requires a mask, you are in AC, not out in the heat and humidity. At most it should be masks to enter a store, not while you are outside in fresh air.

  2. The big issue is going to be masks. Apart from some curious locals nobody is going to travel to Florida to spend their entire vacation wearing a mask, it will just make it a joyless experience. I am guessing they have had to do it to reopen but I’m sure as soon as visitor numbers don’t cover the cost of opening things will change.

  3. Local friends went to dinner there on Wednesday- the day they re-opened. They said that is was an incredibly disappointing experience and won’t be back until the mask requirement is gone. It is already getting very hot and humid, causing breathing/anxiety issues. These are big time Disney fans, annual pass holders, etc.

    We’d planned on going to check it out this week, as we are local too. But my oldest son has asthma that will get aggravated with the heat/mask thing, so we won’t even try.

  4. Tourist news something else to do besides shopping. Things will pick up when the parks open. Maybe the locals will head out there during the long weekend.

  5. Give it time ….Disney Springs will pick up (soon)…and things will get better. Let’s never forget how lucky we were when things were “normal”…. and be thankful. This is truly our “come to Jesus moment”….
