    Default How are they handling crowds/social distancing at Disney Springs?

    We have a trip planned to Walt Disney World in December (which we may cancel), but my main worry is Disney Springs. At the parks, they can control crowds through Park Reservations/tickets/etc. But at Disney Springs? Is it packed? Are they enforcing the mask requirements? Are they controlling crowds in the stores?

    What is it like there?

    I've been to Disney Springs a few times in the last several months - for short periods of time - mostly mid-week and mid-afternoon. During the times we were there, we drove and parked in the garage. The first time we went, only one garage was open and all traffic was directed to that garage. I would imagine they could close all the garages/parking lots if Disney Springs reaches capacity. Everyone coming through the garage had their temperature taken as they entered. There were quite a few people walking around and people seated at dining locations. Almost everyone we saw was wearing a mask though some were "fudging" it a little bit. I understand they do have people walking around to enforce the mask mandate though I'm not sure we saw any of those folks. We had no trouble entering any of the shops we were interested in visiting and, while people were there, we were able to move around freely. A few times, we stopped and waited while we thought someone was getting too close to us or went in a different direction but, overall, we did not have any issues. The do have some store doors marked as entrance only and other marked as exit only. It's possible they will make people stand in line outside the shop doors if any of the stores have too many people inside.

    I have heard that there have been a few times when DS has reached "capacity" and didn't allow some guests to enter. That included resort guests! My suggestion would be to go during the day before parks close and before those people go in the evening.

    We were there last Friday night (November 27th). It was Covid Central; huge crowd, little to no social distancing. Everyone was wearing a mask, however. We felt very uneasy and left after a short time.
