A Day at Disney Springs: Reopening Rules & Guidelines

Re-opening Guidelines

Re-opening Guidelines – Disney Springs

Parking Garage

Only Lime & Orange Garage Open at Disney Springs – as of 5/20/20

Both Lime & Orange garages are slated to be opened, but guests were only allowed to park in the Orange garage, which was only half-full this day.

Temperature Checks

Temperature Checks

Upon arriving in the parking structure, guests will be greeted with health professionals from Advent Health, who are there to check each guest’s temperature. Guests with a temperature above 100.4 degrees fahrenheit will be taken to a secondary staging location to have their temperature checked once more. If the guest’s temperature is above 100.4 degrees, the guest will be asked to leave the property. If the guest’s temperature is below 100.4 degrees, the guest’s temperature will be checked once more 15 minutes after to determine whether or not the guest can be admitted.

Required Masks for Guests & Cast Members

All cast members and guest over 3 years old are required to wear masks at all times. Cast members were on-hand to advise guests on how to adhere to the new rules, and were actively requesting guests to wear masks.
