Today a store in Disney Springs closed rather unexpectedly. So far the closure is a one-off.
Disney Springs, Walt Disney World’s shopping and entertainment district, closed during the global pandemic. However, the district began its phased reopening on May 20, 2020.
A number of dining locations and shops re-opened in waves under specific guidelines. For example, Disney requires guests to wear masks during their visit to Disney Springs with exceptions for eating and drinking.
For the most part, the phased reopening has gone according to plan. However, a few hiccups have emerged.

Now, a shop has joined the ranks of establishments that have re-closed. Guests noticed today that UNIQLO’s Disney Springs location is closed.
UNIQLO is a popular Japanese fashion label. The apparel shop in Disney Springs sells a clothing including a large variety of Disney-themed gear.
UNIQLO has unexpectedly closed.
I have found UNIQLO often has good prices for its Disney apparel, particularly if you are shopping for children. It is a good place to go to escape a little of the sticker shock that comes with along with Disney shopping.
So far, there is no indication of when UNIQLO will reopen its doors. There is also no official statement as to why it closed.
As it stands, it looks as if the closure is temporary based on its current status on Google. Stay tuned for official statements that may emerge.
As always, we will keep you notified if any other shops follow suite. Until then, stay well!
