What’s New in Disney Springs: a NEW Caramel Sundae, Neon Merch Galore, and Refillable Popcorn Buckets!

Welcome back, friends! We’re here with another What’s New in Disney Springs!

Disney Springs

And, we’ve got plenty of merchandise, food, entertainment, and construction updates to share with you, so let’s dive right on in!

Disney Springs Food Updates

We’re starting this What’s New off with plenty of EATS!

B.B. Wolf’s

If you want a quick meal before heading around to explore Disney Springs, B.B. Wolf’s Sausage Co. has opened back up to cook up some sausage again!

BB Wolf’s

Did somebody say Maple Bacon Chocolate-Chip Cookie Dough??

Popcorn Refills

If you’ve been craving Disney popcorn like we have (all that buttery goodness should never be taken for granted), you’ll be ecstatic to know that Disney Springs is refilling popcorn buckets and selling new ones!

Refillable Popcorn Bucket

You can even bring your own popcorn bucket from home to get it refilled for $2! The Cast Members were careful, barely touching the bucket and wiping down the handle before passing it back.

Refilled Bucket

We are craving three refills of Disney popcorn now!!

Learn more about the refillable popcorn buckets in Disney Springs here!

Frontera Cocina

Since Frontera Cocina opened with all that great Mexican food, we’ve been daydreaming about their margaritas! And, the restaurant put a sign out front to let guests know they can sit down inside and also order to-go from their express window.

Frontera Cocina Sign

Don’t you worry, we took out time to sip a marg and see what the restaurant was like after reopening!

Check out our review of Frontera Cocina’s flautas and margs here!

Outdoor Pop-Up Bars

Although we love popping by The Basket to get a Frozcato, now you can stop by one of the outdoor bar carts around Disney Springs!

Disney Springs Pop-Up Bar Cart

They’re currently being operated by the Cast Members from Dockside Margaritas and Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar (so they obviously know their drinks!!).

Read more about the Outdoor Pop-Up Bars and see what drinks you can get here!

Paradiso 37

It’s time for EVEN MORE Mexican food, you guys! Paradiso 37 has reopened to guests (and we’re ready for some afternoon cocktails)!

Paradiso 37

If you’re in the area, you can pop over to get Happy Hour all day long with $5 beers and margaritas!

Lime Margarita

Right now, Paradiso 37 is only offering Red or White Sangria, as well as a Lime Margarita on the rocks!

Learn more about Paradiso 37’s AWESOME Happy Hour here!

Sprinkles Cupcakes

Sprinkles Cupcakes is back open in Disney Springs, folks! Although you have to order ahead of time to get pre-set boxes, you can still use the Cupcake ATM around the corner if you have a spontaneous cupcake craving.


We decided to snack on a Sprinkles Cupcake (yes, that’s the name!) with all those crunchy sprinkles and that sweet, sweet icing that we love!

Sprinkles! Cupcake

Sprinkles is also offering June specialty boxes with Peach Pie and Red Velvet in one box or Peach Pie and Neapolitan in the other.


The outdoor seating section is closed right now, so you’ll either have to eat your treat on the go or sit down somewhere else.

Check out our cupcake “transaction” and review from Sprinkles!


Best. Day. Ever. The Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop has also reopened in Disney Springs! While you can’t visit the retail side of the store for a complimentary chocolate square right now, the ice cream shop is open for business!

Ghirardelli Soda Fountain & Chocolate Shop

The indoor seating is closed at the moment. So, when you place your order, you’ll tell a Cast Member what you’d like and then wait outside for it to be brought out to you. Your tray will also come with silverware and napkins!

Indoor Seating Closed

We were the MOST excited to see a brand new menu item that had our name all over it! The Gold Rush Caramel Sundae had that incredible balance of salty and sweet, along with new white chocolate caramel squares on top.

The NEW Gold Rush Caramel Sundae

We’re still drooling thinking about it.

Read our full review of the new Gold Rush Caramel Sundae at Ghirardelli’s here!


Paddlefish is back open with all the seafood you want to eat! The restaurant has a condensed all-day menu at the moment with to-go drinks available at the bar.


And, if you stick around at night, you can eat on the rooftop bar in the evening!

New England Clam Chowder Soup

There is a paper menu and a QR menu to view, and Paddlefish will provide you with a bag for your mask before you dine.

Crab Cake BLT

While we were there, we tried the Beef Skewers, New England Clam Chowder, and the Crab Cake BLT (and we’ve got our full review coming soon!).

Learn more about the Florida resident discount at Paddlefish!

Terralina Crafted Italian

Craving some pasta?? (We are.) Terralina Crafted Italian has reopened with that bomb Italian food! Right now, the restaurant also has a condensed menu and there is no bread service as a precaution.

Terralina Crafted Italian

There are QR and paper menus and guests are given bags for their masks. You can get to-go drinks from the indoor and outdoor bars too (yaaas!).

Paper Menu

When we visited, we tried the Limoncello Mojito…

…Burrata (which was AWESOME)…


…Rigatoni Calabrese…

…and Chocolate Paradiso Cake!

Paradise Cake

Spoiler alert: this cake was heavenly.

Disney Springs Merchandise Updates

Let’s go on a shopping spree, friends! And, there’s no better place to start than in World of Disney!

World of Disney

We’ve seen fluctuated amounts of people at the World of Disney, but it was pretty empty again when we visited! We had a MAJOR throwback when we saw the Pleasure Island Hat when we were visiting (anybody else still miss the OG Disney Springs spot??)…

Pleasure Island Hat

…and fell in love with the Disney Princess Loungefly Backpack all over again, which has been on shopDisney before but not in stores!

Disney Princess Loungefly Backpack

We also spotted more kids’ items from the newest Neon Line at the World of Disney too! Your kiddo can look as stylish as ever wearing the Hot Pink Minnie Tank…

Kids’ Neon Tank Top

…and the Mickey Balloon Tank Top for $24.99 each!

Kids’ Neon Tank Top

We’re totally “living that Disney life” here at DFB. How about you??

Kids’ Neon Tank Top

They can also cool off in the summer sun wearing the Hot Pink Tie-Up Tee…

Kids’ Neon Tie-Up Tee

…Yellow Mesh Shorts…

Kids’ Neon MeshShorts

…and Neon Biker Shorts for $24.99 each too.

Summer clothes AND Disney?? Sounds like a pretty sweet combo.

Take a look at EVERYTHING else new in the World of Disney here!

The Spice and Tea Exchange

The Spice and Tea Exchange is open again (and smells AH-MAZING) in Disney Springs!

The Spice & Tea Exchange

You can check out all the spice grinders to use in your kitchen…


…the Float Teas that you can use with loose-leaf tea…

Float Teas

…and you can even grab your own custom blends of teas, spices, and more while you’re there!

Custom Blends

Don’t say we didn’t warn you — there are a LOT of choices.

Take a look at everything you can find in the Spice and Tea Exchange here!

Lego Store

Since the Lego Store reopened, there have been some BIG changes to the way you would regularly visit!

The only entrance to the LEGO Store

Right now, the interactive touch screens, build-your-own parts for mini figurines, and interactive bins are all unavailable. Plus, you are asked to stay behind the taped off areas when you’re looking around.

Taped off floor markings in the LEGO Store

If you want to check out a lego set, a Cast Member will help you.

See all the changes in the Lego Store here!

Kate Spade

Although Kate Spade is open right now, the store isn’t letting anyone inside! You can still place phone order and receive curbside pick-up.

Kate Spade

You can also window-shop and call the store if you see something you like!

Vera Bradley

Stores around Disney Springs have started to sell their own face masks to guests!

Vera Bradley Face Masks

Although Vera Bradley has previously had a few designs to choose from, there was only one in stock while we were there since they’re selling out quickly.

Read all about Vera Bradley’s face masks here!


Sephora has opened back up to guests, but things are little bit different! At this time, there are no samples, trying on products, or beauty and skin services.


You can return products after purchasing them, and you can also score a free tote with a $75 purchase!


We noticed that Cast Members wore buttons with their faces on them (which were ADORABLE) so you know what they look like without a mask on.


A Cast Member also told us that the store plans to sell their own face masks soon too (we only hope there are some colors that make our eyes pop!).

Check out Sephora’s SUPER crowded reopening in Disney Springs here!

Fuel Rod

If you’re in Disney Springs and you want to exchange your Fuel Rod, the experience is now contactless. Note that you will have to call the number listed on the machines so a Fuel Rod can be remotely dispatched to you.

Disney Springs Construction Update

We were happy to see that the new Shine Bar at Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’ is in full swing to bring us a new place to kick back, sip on some cocktails, and maybe eat some Hummingbird Cake (fingers crossed).

Shine Bar

The construction sign gave us a little sneak peek of what’s to come!

Learn more about the new Shine Bar coming soon here!

Disney Springs Entertainment Update

The Stormtroopers were ordering around Rebel SCUM again (and empathizing with First Order supporters, of course).


We’ve also spotted them in a newer spot closer the the AMC Theater!

Check out the First Order invasion that happened in Disney Springs recently!

Well, that’s all for this What’s New in Disney Springs! We’re going to keep doing our part eating the latest food options, checking out stores as they reopen, and keeping you posted every step of the way!
