It’s Been One Week…And Boy Has Disney World Dropped Lots of Reopening News!

I hope you enjoyed our Barenaked Ladies reference in the title. I think that song has lyrics that, in some way, reference the relationship of Disney World and its guests. Mostly the opening stanza. If you aren’t familiar with it, the song starts like this:
It’s been one week since you looked at me
Cocked your head to the side
and said I’m angry
Five days since you laughed at me saying
Get that together come back and see me

Maybe I’m reading too much into it. I do find it similar, though. I think Disney World fans are feeling a wide array of emotions about the park reopening now. Laughing and angry may be just two of them, but it probably covers the range of emotions.

Well, if yesterday’s news about the reopening of Walt Disney World wasn’t enough, Disney quietly dropped more news today. Unfortunately, much of what they let out is not going to sit well with pretty much anyone and create more anxiety and problems. Let’s go through what they announced in this post from Disney Parks Blog.

It has now been over six weeks since Disney World closed as the country shut down due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

NBA Experience at Disney Springs Review

We recently had the chance to stop by the new NBA Experience at Disney Springs. The interactive experience is touted as a place you can “live out your hoops fantasies.” It has several interactive experiences where you can test your skill level and even compare your physical size to that of NBA and WNBA players. Here in our NBA Experience at Disney Springs review, we’ll talk about our experience as a family and how we felt it held up.

As part of our Frontera Cocina at Disney Springs review, we ate lunch here, sampling items from all sections of the menu, other than dessert.

Frontera Cocina at Disney Springs Review

Frontera Cocina is a Mexican inspired restaurant that you will find in the Town Center section of Disney Springs. Beyond the food, the most notable thing about Frontera Cocina is that the restaurant is the vision of celebrity chef Rick Bayless. Here in our Frontera Cocina at Disney Springs review, we’ll cover our experience dining here, including thoughts on the food, atmosphere. We’ll pepper in several pictures along the way too!

Jaleo at Disney Springs is one of the new restaurants from famous chefs.

Jaleo Disney Springs Review

At long last, the highly anticipated Jaleo restaurant at Disney Springs opened up about a month ago. On our recent trip to Disney, we made reservations for the hot new restaurant to check it out. We’re hardly the first bloggers to eat at Jaleo in Disney Springs, so we had a general idea of what to expect, but there were definitely some things we should have planned out better. We’ll cover that, along with photos of the food, our thoughts on value, ambiance and how to possibly navigate the menu here in our Jaleo Disney Springs review. There was also one weird thing we had not see in other reviews. More on that in a bit.

Raglan Road Brunch Review

Located in Disney Springs, Raglan Road is probably one of the most authentic Irish pubs we think you will find in all of America. In fact, it is as authentic as it comes, all the way down to its bones. More on that in a second. We’ve certainly not been to every (or many) Irish pubs, but this one fits the bill with what we have in our head.

On Saturdays and Sundays, Raglan Road hosts a brunch from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM. You’ll be able to eat from a special brunch menu and experience what is probably a more toned-down version of what the pub is in the evening. Here in our Raglan Road Bruch review we’ll walk you through what you need to know and our experience dining here.
