If you’re taking a Lyft or Uber, or just getting dropped off, you can get dropped off at the Marketplace lot.
Parking presents an interesting setup: Only the Orange and Lime parking garages will be available. No surface parking lots or valet will be available. Another important thing to note is that parking is first come, first serve. Once these two parking garages are full, no overflow parking will be permitted… and as you’ll come to read below, guests with dining reservations will not be secured parking.

Bag check has never been required at Disney Springs, and will not be required at this time.
Mask naysayers are in for a rough time––absolutely no exceptions will be made to the required face covering policy, unless you’re 3 years old or younger. The FAQ does state that “disposable masks may be available”, meaning that they may have some spares at the checkpoint, but I wouldn’t count on it––you may also be directed to purchase your own, like at CityWalk.
Physical Distancing – Cast Member Enforcement and Capacity
As far as social distancing goes, it’s something we’re all slowly getting accustomed to. Disney alludes to a new “team” being assembled for the purpose of “engaging with guests and promoting physical distancing guidelines in common areas and queues.” So if you see a Cast Member come up to you to request that you maintain social distancing, please understand that they are just doing their job to keep you safe.
Many of you have already booked up reservations at third-party Disney Springs restaurants for the reopening. An exception to the usual no-show fee will be implemented at this time, and if you’re unable to make your reservation due to capacity issues, the charge will be waived…
Which brings us to our last key point: Even if you have a reservation, if you cannot secure a parking spot upon arrival due to capacity, you will be turned away. So whether you have dinner reservations, or are just dropping in for a late lunch, do keep in mind that you may want to show up far earlier in the day to secure your chances of getting a parking spot, and therefore not missing your coveted Wine Bar George reservation.
