Exciting News! Homecomin’ In Disney Springs Is Getting a NEW Patio Shine Bar!

After parking and passing through the new health screening process, we’ve made it inside Disney Springs for the first time since mid-March!

And although Disney Springs doesn’t officially open until 10AM, we’re currently walking around to see what’s new or different before the some of the shops and restaurants start to open up. You can follow along with our live, all-day coverage here!

On our meanderings this morning, we walked by Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’ and noticed something VERY unusual — construction WALLS?!

That’s right, friends! This LOOOOONG row of construction walls that were running alongside Homecomin’s building this morning was pretty hard to miss! AND we definitely would have remembered seeing them the last time we stopped by! That means this project is completely NEW and totally out of the blue!

Back in December, Homecomin’ introduced a new enclosed patio. Now, a new sign has posted on one of the walls to show us another new addition! It looks like Homecomin’ is gettin’ a fancy new outdoor patio bar called Homecomin’ Shine Bar & Social!

Even though Homecomin’ isn’t reopening today, we saw a few construction workers at the restaurant today! This confirmed for us some smaller construction projects have resumed at Disney World despite all construction being halted when the parks initially closed.

We’re eager to see more about the new Homecomin’ Shine Bar & Social that’s currently underway! So far, there haven’t been any details about this new project yet, but we’ll let you know more about it as soon as Homecomin’ releases some details!
