Pearl Factory returning to Disney Springs

Nov 12, 2020 in "Disney Springs"

Posted: Thursday November 12, 2020 11:25am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

The Pearl Factory is returning to Disney Springs after what was expected to be a permanent closure back in June as a result of COVID-19.

No word yet on a reopening date, but it will be located in the Marketplace across from TREN-D.  The kiosk allowed guests to choose an oyster and have a pearl made into a unique piece of jewelry.

Disney Springs closed along with the rest of Walt Disney World in mid-march 2020 as part of measures to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. The majority of locations at Disney Springs have reopened, although operating hours are reduced and social distancing measures are in effect.

Are there certain times when they do security at Disney Springs or something? We were dropped off via bus there from our resort a few weeks back and did not have to go through any security other than a guy with a dog (they were off to the side of the entrance, not explicitly stopping guests). I remember going through the security there when arriving via bus before on past trips, but that was later in the day I suppose.

The footprint has shrunk a little and there’s much less extended queue space, but it still knocks out a few rows of parking. Not sure what they can do about that really, especially in Lime there’s just no space for a checkpoint otherwise.

FTFY!

With temp checks gone, have they found a better way to streamline the security in the garages yet? It was taking up far too many spaces with the layout before.

The "front porch" live music is back, but not inside yet.

Has live entertainment returned to the performance space inside of House of Blues yet? That and Cirque dumping large groups of people outside who were likely hungry and thirsty was a big driver of places staying open later.

Guessing so... No one standing outside of Enzo's saying, "I demand to be served" at 2am... :)

More like demand is down at this time

I'm usually only there at night. I've eaten QS dinner and then had gelato or something for dessert sometime between 9-10 several times. It's better food than eating anywhere in the parks.

Still coming.

What's up with Cirque Du Soleil? It was an item now the silence is defining.

Covid only spreads between 11:30 pm and dawn? Interesting.

Whatever time DS closes is purely a business decision made by Disney. Closing DS early reduces costs for Disney, like so many other cost cutting decisions Disney made in the name of COVID. You do have to wonder, DS is a glorified mall with tenants. I have to imagine in the lease DS must agree to be open some minimum hours, but who knows, perhaps the lease contracts are heavily one sided to Disney because location, location, location..
