Walt Disney World has finally released an official list of places that will be open on May 20 at Disney Springs. This list is taken directly from the DisneySprings.com/reopening website. The list does not include places like Morimoto Asia, which will reopen on May 22, or the Disney-owned locations that will reopen on May 27. Tomorrow, May 20, the following places at Disney Springs will reopen:
4 Rivers Cantina Barbacoa Food Truck
The Art Corner by Artistic Talent Group
Blaze Fast-Fire’d Pizza
Crystal Arts by Arribas Brothers
Earl of Sandwich®
Edward Beiner Purveyor of Fine Eyewear

There are two things that I would like to note. First, Haagen-Dazs is not on the above list, even though that is one place that was originally rumored to be reopening on May 20. I guess we’ll find out tomorrow.
Second, the hours of operation have finally been listed. Disney Springs will reopen tomorrow morning at 10:00, and it will close at 10:00pm. Not all businesses will be open the entire time. Those are the posted hours for Disney Springs into November, which is as far as the Walt Disney World calendar currently goes. That doesn’t mean anything, since hours are always subject to change.
It will be interesting to see what happens. I expected crowds to flock to CityWalk at Universal when they reopened last week, but that didn’t happen. I’ve been to CityWalk twice with my daughter since they reopened, and it hasn’t been busy at all. Yesterday we drove by Disney Springs. You can’t see all that much from the road, but we could see that there were white tents set up in the Marketplace area. I’m assuming that those are for temperature check, but I could be wrong.
