Disney Springs, the shopping and dining district located at Walt Disney World Resort, reportedly hit capacity this weekend as both parking garages closed to new Guests. And with the holidays around the corner, crowds continue to flock over to the Disney World theme parks as well as to Disney Springs.

She shared that the line moved decently quickly, however, once inside the shopping and dining district she personally felt as though it was “beyond packed and unsafe.” She even shared she did not see any social distancing whatsoever.

Note that Disney is making efforts to enforce strict health and safety protocol within all of the theme parks (Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and Disney’s Hollywood Studios) as well as the Disney Resort hotels. However, although Disney Springs is part of Disney World property, it does function much like an outdoor shopping mall, and unlike the parks, reservations are not required to enter. As always, Guests should be aware of the current risks when visiting Disney Springs and other public places, as the pandemic is still ongoing.

Fallon isn’t the only one who made note of how crowded Disney Springs was this past weekend as this Twitter user Mack the Ripper shared, “Disney Springs is freaking packed”.

One user, Lain, responded to the tweet sharing “We’re turning around! Every garage is closed and there’s sheriffs saying at capacity. Stay safe please!!”

And Lawfully Good Gaming, who also visited Disney Springs this past weekend, shared that Disney has been extremely cautious with over cleaning and having hand sanitation located everywhere within the theme parks; however, when at Disney Springs, they felt as though this was not the case.

“Your staff didn’t seem to be making any effort to keep track of numbers for reduced capacity,” they wrote.

Guests also took to Instagram to share some photos from Disney Springs this past weekend, including Paul B. You can clearly see the crowds outside of World of Disney in the post below.

If you are planning to visit Walt Disney World, please remember to follow the new safety and health protocols in order to keep you and others safe during this time. Keep your distance from others, wear your face coverings, use the hand sanitizer located throughout the resort, try to use paperless payment methods, and cover your mouth and nose while sneezing or coughing.
