What’s New This Weekend On the Go in the Parks

Disney Springs Town Center at Walt Disney World Resort Disney Springs Reopening

The First Disney Operated locations opened at Disney Springs this week, which was really cool because it was great to get a look at how the virtual queue works!

Disney Springs is utilizing this system at both World of Disney and the Marketplace Co-Op, and to enter these shopping locations when it is busy you needed to join a virtual queue. 

To join the virtual queue find the Cast Member managing the queue near the entrance to the location, give them your cell phone number, and they will send you a text when it is your time to shop.

It’s super simple!!!

The third location that opened was D-Luxe Burger for mobile orders. YUM!!!!

Tips and Tricks for Visiting Disney Springs

It’s really great to have Disney Springs open again for guests, and it keeps getting better because now you can find Stormtroopers about the AMC theater entrance near Splitsville and in the Town Center above Ever After Jewelry Co. & Accessories.

If you are going to make your way to Disney Springs, make sure that you:

  • Bring your mask (here’s a quick no-sew mask DIY),
  • Make any dining reservations you would like in advance online, and 
  • Take the time to be patient as Cast Members are still getting used to new cleaning procedures. 
  • Check out these helpful Tips & Tricks on where to park and more!

Universal Orlando’s CityWalk

4pm – 10pm

Universal Orlando Resort CityWalk Reopening

It was so great to once again see people roaming CityWalk, but I will caution you that I expect the area to be busy this weekend so there a few things you can do to cut down on your waits!

To make your visit easier:

  • Download the Official Universal Orlando Resort App as they are encouraging cashless transactions.
  • Plan to arrive early: They are limiting the number of guests they are allowing in the CityWalk area, and there can be a back up at the parking plaza as self-parking is free.
  • Be prepared  – Have that mask on and ready as you approach the temperature check. 
  • Be patient – Mind those 6ft social distancing markers on the ground, relax, and make sure to enjoy your time once again at Universal’s CityWalk!!!

CityWalk at the Universal Orlando Resort is open daily from 4-10 pm, but please remember that the theme parks and resorts are still currently closed. 

Let’s take a look at the other attractions opening around Orlando!

All Universal guests are urged to follow CDC guidelines and self-assess for potential symptoms of COVID, including cough, temperature, and difficulty breathing, prior to their arrival.  Guests should also evaluate their own risk before they visit – and it is not recommended that individuals at high-risk with serious underlying medical conditions visit the destination. People who show no symptoms can still spread COVID-19 if they are infected. Any interaction with the general public poses an elevated risk of being exposed to COVID-19 and Universal cannot guarantee guests will not be exposed during their visit.

In addition, guests should be aware of and comply with government guidelines regarding travel restrictions and mandatory quarantines.
