Guests have begin visiting, drawn by the reopening of select dining options and retail locations. But it looks as if earth’s inhabitants are not the only ones who are making visits to Disney Springs.

Apparently the reopening has drawn new-comers from the very edge of the Galaxy. As it turns out, protective face masks aren’t the only masks you will be seeing if you visit Disney Springs!

First Order Stormtroopers have strayed from Batuu and have infiltrated the Springs! It is unclear as to whether or not they are part of the newly-formed Social Distancing Squad, made up of Cast Members serving to remind guests to comply with safety measures.

A stormtrooper would certainly convince me to abide by the laws of the land. Of course, it is much more likely patrolling the area for Rebel spies who have also made their way across the Galaxy.

If you're brave enough to enter into a park situation, this seems a safe bet for the characters & a treat for the guests, as there will be no ( few ? ) interactions available. It will be a very long time before I hit Disney World again …. but good to see all the thought put into safeguards. I'm afraid, like outside the parks, people are not to be trusted to adhere to the rules. Too many examples of blatant disregard have already been caught in national news stories. Good luck, though !
