If you’re like us, your sleep schedule has probably gotten a little wacky being at home, so you’ve needed LOTS of coffee.
But, it just hasn’t been the same without that extra bit of Disney magic! Well, Disney Springs reopened with its third-party stores and restaurants today. While Disney-owned locations won’t be opening until next week, we’re taking you LIVE with us to see all the places re-open now! But, first, coffee!!! 😉
Disney World is home to lots of Joffrey’s Coffee locations throughout the parks in Epcot, Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, and more. But, while the parks are closed, Disney Springs is still reopening its Joffrey’s locations.
One of the biggest questions we’re being asked is if guests are still able to walk around Disney Springs with food and coffee. So, we checked this out at the reopened Joffrey’s. Various Cast Members told us that YES, you can walk around with a beverage or snack! They ask that you remove your mask to take a sip or bite, and replace it between sips or bites.
When we arrived at the coffee shop, there were distancing markers on the ground to keep guests six feet apart from one another. At Joffrey’s, they fittingly use coffee bean stickers to denote where to stand. There were also designated entrances and exits to keep the flow of traffic moving a certain way.
There were around 6 bean spots on the ground with one party per bean and you are not allowed to hang out inside the store to drink your coffee. We also noted that the Joffrey’s workers did ask people to stay on their bean before moving up in the ordering line.
Face Coffee was back on the menu for guests to get that fabulous work of art (their lovely faces) on their lattes and cappuccinos. It’s one of the most entertaining things to do in Disney Springs during your visit if you happen to stop by Joffrey’s.
Of course, we checked out the pastry case too which was stocked full of delicious-looking donuts, including a new one — just a basic donut with cookies and cream icing.
After visiting, we noticed that the coffee spot had indeed reconfigured its retail and dining experiences to fit with the new health and safety guidelines Disney Springs has put in place. The experience didn’t feel too disruptive and the employees enforced the new procedures.
We’re checking out a reopened Disney Springs ALL DAY today so stay tuned to follow along!
