Disney Springs is home to dozens of fantastic places to shop and eat, featuring locations like The LEGO Store, Harley Davidson, Lacoste, Vera Bradley, Rainforest Cafe, Planet Hollywood, and the M&M’s and Coca-Cola Stores. Guests visiting Disney Springs are encouraged to shop and eat until they drop, and we can’t think of a better place in Orlando to do some serious shopping and dining.

Unfortunately, we’ve seen quite a few of these locations close over the last year at Disney Springs, with another location set to permanently shut its doors very soon.

As reported by WdwmagicRustic Cuff will be closing effective immediately end of day on August 21, 2023. Rustic Cuff sells cuffs and charm bracelets. The storefront is located near the Sephora location. There is no word on what will replace this store at this time.

Rustic Cuff originally opened as a temporary pop-up store in 2020 but eventually got its own store location. As we stated earlier, Rustic Cuff joins quite a few other permanently-closed locations at Disney Springs. For more information regarding these closures, click here.

Of course, Guests can still enjoy all there is to do at the Walt Disney World Resort, including visiting the Disney Parks like Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Guests looking to take a break from the brutal Orlando heat can head to Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon water park and make a splash. Disney’s Blizzard Beach water park is currently closed for refurbishment.

Originally called Downtown Disney, Disney Springs acts as an extra activity to enjoy while you vacation at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. Even though many classic experiences await you at the Disney Parks, like Haunted Mansion, “it’s a small world,” Pirates of the Caribbean, Space Mountain, and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, it’s nice to have alternative options. When you get tired of walking around Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, or Hollywood Studios, you can head on over to Disney Springs for a fun, relaxing night out.

Guests will find a Downtown Disney location at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, which acts in a similar fashion as Disney Springs does in Orlando, Florida.
