Note: This article has been updated to reflect that Earl Enterprise restaurants at Disney Springs remain open as of March 17. They include Planet Hollywood, Chicken Guy and Earl of Sandwich.
Walt Disney World has reconsidered its original decision to keep Disney Springs open even as it closed its theme parks and will shutter all of its company owned and operated restaurants and retail outlets at midnight Monday, March 16, through the end of the month.
In a note on the Disney Springs website, the company posted, “Select restaurants and retail locations at Disney Springs may remain open and Guests should call the location they wish to visit for operating hours.” However, it appears that all of the restaurants at the retail and entertainment complex will follow suit.
Although independently owned and operated, Raglan Road will also close at midnight on the eve of what is historically its busiest holiday: St. Patrick’s Day.
In a note to its customers, Raglan Road wrote:
We are sad to announce that we’ll be closing our doors from midnight tonight for a while. We hope everyone will take the necessary precautions to help counter the impact of the virus, and help protect our elderly or immunocompromised family, friends and neighbors.
Thanks to all our loyal Guests who make Raglan such a great place to work for us.
We’ll miss you and will be champing at the bit to reopen soon.
All Patina Restaurant Group venues – Morimoto Asia, The Edison, Maria & Enzo's, Enzo's Hideaway – will close as will the Levy Restaurants' Terralina Crafted Italian and Paddlefish. Earl Enterprises' Planet Hollywood and Chicken Guy will also close.
