What to Expect at Disney Springs Today

If you’re wanting to get into a World of Disney today, you may be in for a surprise. Disney Springs opened the garages at 7 am this morning allowing people in to get into line. As it stands at opening, there’s a line to get into a virtual queue. Yeah, you read that right.

The line to even get on the list to enter World of Disney wraps around the marketplace by Ghiradelli, next to Co-op Marketplace, by Rainforest Cafe, and back over the bridge close to T-Rex. This is JUST TO GET INTO A VIRTUAL QUEUE and get on the list to enter the store.

Physical Distancing at Disney Springs

Right now, there’s a six hour wait to get into the store. They will text you about an hour before your time is coming up, then 30 minutes before you will get a follow up text to show up and check-in. If you don’t check -in before your time, you lose your spot.

Times are obviously varying as someone just told me they have a three hour line to even get a virtual queue. For Marketplace Co-op, there is also a six hour virtual queue wait after you wait after I waited in line for about an hour.
