At 10am this morning, Disney Springs was opened to the public after being closed Wednesday and Thursday due to Hurricane Ian. Came to check out the Lego Lake Monster, the symbol of Disney Springs. All kidding aside, I wanted to check the area to see if there was any damage.
As we approached the Lime Garage, there was a line waiting to park. When I got off the escalator, there was also a line for security. These lines clearly reflect the crowds inside Disney Springs. We saw more of these lines as we passed various shopping/dining locations. Lines were forming outside the LEGO Store, T-Rex Cafe, and Joffrey’s Coffee and Tea.
We haven’t seen any damage so far, but we did see some cast members cleaning up leaves and branches outside Pizza Ponte while setting up tables for outdoor dining.
I also saw a crew member outside the AMC cinema who was putting the movie poster back up that had been hanging for the Avatar screening.
Ballooning attractions have been suspended due to persistent winds in the area. Sassagoula River Cruises are currently closed and guests staying at Port Orleans Resort, Old Key West, and Saratoga Springs will not be able to take the boat to and from Disney Springs. Upon entering Disney Springs, we received a notice informing guests of the closure.
That’s all I have so far from Disney Springs. As always, we’ll keep you updated on what’s happening at the parks and Disney Springs.
