Local TV Coverage of Disney Springs Reopening
I just can’t get enough coverage of the reopening of Walt Disney World, with the first phase being Disney Springs.
And, hey, we live in the age of the Internet, so even the local Orlando news is well, also available to us Yankees in New England.
Thank goodness, btw, because we have a frost warning tonight.
But I digress.
Fox 35 Hit Disney Springs and Valerie Boey gave us the 411:
Was nice to see Disney Springs reopen with limited shops and restaurants. If you head out, remember to bring a mask. Use a light weight one if possible. It’s hot today!#Fox35 @fox35orlando pic.twitter.com/QWmFp3Ndlj

On day one of Disney Springs reopening, there was a light crowd but that made it easier for social distancing as guests moved around the retail, dining, and entertainment complex.
“I thought it was great today. Everything was well organized. People were social distancing, lots of sanitizer, lots of handwashing stations.” said Alexandra Zaroff, who couldn’t wait to return to the complex.
“They had the temperature checks as soon as you came into the garage, sanitizer as well. I think it was very well organized.”

Zaroff said she and her party ate lunch at Wolfgang Puck’s restaurant.
“Tables were separated a good distance. You had to keep your face mask on the whole time, but when you had to sit down and eat, you were allowed to take it off,” she explained.
Makes sense, as do Disney Springs posted new rules and advisories:
