If you are planning on visiting Disney Springs once it officially reopens on May 20, there are a few things you may want to keep in mind.

Disney Springs has announced that, in order to keep capacity limited, even if you have an advance dining reservation, you may not be able to get in. Disney Springs has officially stated:

Will I be able to come to Disney Springs if I have a dining reservation, but the parking garages are full or if Disney Springs is closed due to capacity?

Unfortunately, due to capacity restrictions at Disney Springs, once the parking garages are full, Guests will no longer be able to park and visit Disney Springs. This includes Guests who have booked a dining reservation.

Therefore, once the parking garages are full, regardless if you have an advance dining reservation, Disney will not allow you to park your car or enter Disney Springs until capacity is no longer reached.

Disney Springs has also stated:

How will restaurants handle reservations when they reach capacity?

Unfortunately, due to capacity restrictions at Disney Springs, once the parking garages are full, Guests will no longer be able to park and visit Disney Springs. This includes Guests who have a booked dining reservation. If a Guest is unable to make their reservation because Disney Springs is closed due to capacity, the dining guarantee charge will be waived.

If you are wondering how Disney will handle the dining guarantee fee, don’t worry. If you are unable to make your dining reservation due to the capacity being full, Disney will not charge you the fee.

Will I be charged the dining guarantee fee if I cannot make my dining reservation because Disney Springs is closed due to capacity?

No. If a Guest is unable to make their reservation because Disney Springs is closed due to capacity, the dining guarantee charge will be waived.
