What’s New in Disney Springs: Construction Updates, TONS of Rainbow Merchandise, and Designer Masks!

Disney Springs has been reopened for a few weeks, and there are new things popping up daily!

Disney Springs

Though there are a lot of general changes to how Disney Springs is run so that guests, Cast Members, and employees are safe; some things are still the way they were before the closure. For instance, we’re still able to check in on NEW food items, NEW construction updates, and NEW merchandise! Let’s check out everything that’s new in Disney Springs today!

Disney Springs Food Update

As always, we’re starting off with our number one priority — the food of Disney Springs!

Pizza Ponte

Though there aren’t too many food updates today in the Springs, we did notice a new sign up outside of Pizza Ponte.

Pizza Ponte Sign

The Fruit and Wine Pops and Frozen Sangrias have been around for a while, but boy does this sign make us want to pop in and grab a treat to cool off with.

Starbucks has a new drink AND a new souvenir cup. Remember, you can’t get your souvenir cup filled right now, but you’re of course welcome to pour the drink in yourself. The new cup is to celebrate Pride Month. When we first saw the Confetti Cup, we were a little confused. Those white spots don’t look like confetti! Or DO they???

Confetti Cups

To really see why the cup was called the Confetti Cup, we picked up the new Love is Love drink special (also for pride month) made of a Violet Drink with strawberries and topped with strawberry sweet cream cold foam.

Love is Love Drink

Not only was the drink DELICIOUS, but when we poured it into our new cup, the design started to change. That’s right, there are COLOR CHANGING confetti pieces. Look how cute!

Love is Love in Confetti Cup

You can snag the new cup for $4 and the drink was priced at $8.10 for a Venti.

Cookes of Dublin

Cookes of Dublin and The Hole in the Wall Outside Bar have officially reopened.

Cookes of Dublin

Obviously, we celebrated with some Fish & Chips and yummy Cheese Dip. Plus, they’ve got NEW HAPPY HOUR SPECIALS!

House of Blues

House of Blues has reopened too! In fact, we were the first ones there when the doors opened from the closure.

House of Blues

We were actually really impressed with the apps we tried here and listening to live music again was a total treat.

Disney Springs Construction Update

Next up let’s take a look at some of the construction in Disney Springs. There’s a good bit of it!

M&M Store

First up, construction on the M&M Store continues. They’ve added construction barriers that weren’t there just a few days ago!

M&M Store

We can’t wait to see the WALL of M&Ms that is coming to this spot sometime this year.

We checked in on the upcoming lululemon location as well. This location is set to open this summer!


It looks like they’ve got a sign in the works for above the entrance!

Homecomin’ Shine Bar

We’re super excited about the new Shine Bar (that’s MOONSHINE, friends!) that’s coming to Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’!

Shine Bar

You can catch a glimpse of the progress from just across the Springs. It looks like work is coming along!

We figured we’d check in on Beatrix, too!


This new dining spot is going to have some marketplace vibes. We can’t see too much of the progress from behind these construction barriers though!

Ample Hills Creamery

As far as we can tell, there’s still work being done just across the way at Ample Hills Creamery.

City Works Eatery and Pour House

And finally, there’s actually a little bit of construction going on at the new City Works restaurant too! Those temporary planters are up to hide the work.

City Works

We DID spot a construction permit for a canopy at this spot so that certainly explains the work we’re seeing. Maybe it means there will be more outdoor seating when the spot reopens. City Works also shared that they plan to reopen in Disney Springs soon!

Disney Springs Merchandise Update

Now for the biggest group of updates. Let’s take a look at that new merch, pals!

Vera Bradley

We finished our tour at Vera Bradley to see what mask designs they had available today. According to the associate, the masks have been super popular so they’ve been rotating the patterns a lot.
