Sunglass Hut Building Painted & First Exterior Paneling Installed as Refurbishment Continues at Disney Springs

Work continues on the Sunglass Hut store at Disney Springs, which is receiving a full overhaul. We stopped by the shopping complex this week and found some updates to the structure since we last stopped by.

Sunglass Hut Refurbishment

When last we stopped by in February, the building had been stripped down to its base materials with all cladding removed. They’ve since repainted the exterior to a light tan color from black. As well, a sign finally has been installed directing guests to their pop-up truck selling sunglasses during the refurbishment. It reads:

Please pardon our appearance while we remodel. Please visit our pop-up truck.

The interior still appears to require some work, with no ceiling and some work lights still visible. The first of the new decor, golden cladding above the windows, has been installed in all but one open positions.

Sunglass Hut closed back in February, with its pop-up truck appearing about a week after the shop closed its doors temporarily. No reopening date for the popular sunglasses shop has been announced, but you can stop by the aforementioned truck as well as Island Supply in the Magic Kingdom to get your Sunglass Hut fix if you need.
