House of Blues reopens at Disney Springs and launches 'Get Some, Give Some' campaign to provide meals for those in need

Jun 04, 2020 in "House of Blues"

House of Blues at Disney Springs has reopened following the COVID-19 shutdown in mid-March.

The restaurant will celebrate its return with music and the launch of the “Get Some, Give Some” meal-matching campaign to aid in the battle against hunger. For every single entrée purchased for dine in or takeout, House of Blues will provide one meal to Covenant House of Florida, whose mission is dedicated to serving all God’s children, with absolute respect and unconditional love, to guide youth experiencing homelessness, and to protect and safeguard all youth in need. Through this philanthropic campaign, House of Blues hopes to provide hundreds of meals to youth in need in their community.

“This has been such a difficult time these past few months, not just for our city but for communities everywhere,” said Jason Petrina, General Manager House of Blues Orlando. “Our ‘Get Some, Give Some’ campaign will help feed our neighborhoods through our partnership with Covenant House of Florida. “Needed now more than ever, Covenant House of Florida does amazing work for our community; and together, we hope to be able to get meals to those struggling.

“Combined with a musical experience featuring some great local artists, we're hoping to create a welcome return to a bit of excellent food and entertainment that everyone has been missing in Orlando.”

Available for both dine-in and take-out, operating hours are Monday - Friday 4pm to 9pm, and Saturday - Sunday 12pm to 9pm.

Photo update as of Wednesday, November 18, 2020. Opening last Friday (November 13) the Pearl Factory is located in the same kiosk where it was previously.

Drove over tonight hoping to grab a bite to eat and its packed. Seems like it’s been at capacity for a few hours. Tons of cars driving around the area and police blocking the garages.

I was going to go last night around 8 PM but they were at capacity. Realized I didn’t want to go if they were even close to being at capacity, lol

Whoops. Forgot about that. Yeah, Disney's enforcing their own capacity limits.

Thanks....I'll just get there a little earlier then usual....if that's the only parking we can use it will reach it's car limitation quicker, with this mandate lifted....

Slight clarification there, per the Governor’s executive order from a few days ago, there are no longer state mandates on any retail or restaurant. Disney as property owner is continuing to mandate capacity requirements, temp screening, and mask usage and there have been no major changes to the way the Springs has been operating since reopening. I was there for lunch yesterday, crowds were sparse at noon but slowly building through the early afternoon. When we arrived at 11:30 only the Orange garage was open.

Not likely. Parking is how they purposefully limit attendance. Disney doesn't want packed walkways. And the stores and restaurant are also at a state-mandated reduced capacity limiting the number of people. Opening up new parking would just add long lines outside all the businesses.

Since Disney Springs is now fully open, I think, and the crowds are getting larger, during the weekend....will there be more parking areas?

Oh thank God the Margarita stand is open. Something to keep Auntie Tillie occupied while we raid the World of Disney for all the new Wishables, leaving no bag unsqueezed.
