It was just revealed that Sosa Family Cigar Co. will be closing for good on January 2, 2023. This cigar shop has been a staple of the Disney Springs dining and shopping district at the Walt Disney World Resort for decades.

The company first operated out of a location in the former Pleasure Island building, with the current location being found on the West Side.

As of now, there is no word on what will replace the location.

With over a dozen entertainment experiences, 60 + dining locations and more than 100 shopping opportunities, Disney Springs is the perfect place to grab a bite to eat, shop till you drop and snag a souvenir or two. Free parking and entry ensure enjoyment is easy for locals or those visiting the resort.

The Lake Buena Vista Shopping Village arrived at the end of Hotel Plaza Boulevard in 1975. Over the years, expansions added Pleasure Island and Downtown Disney Westside. Today these regions are known as Disney Springs.

Inspired by American coastal towns, Disney Springs houses four fun areas.
