After a period of two months, Disney Springs made a triumphant return with its first phase of reopening this week. The current President of Walt Disney World Resort, Josh D’Amaro, congratulates Disney Springs cast members for both their hard work and contributions to the grand reopening.
Many visitors were thrilled to see the return of Disney Springs and went to its reopening on May 20, 2020. Being the first phase, only certain third-party retailers and restaurants were operating for guests this week. Josh D’Amaro made a special appearance to greet both visitors and the cast members who made this reopening possible. He congratulates Disney Springs cast members in a special message on his Instagram. You can read the post below here.

Congratulations to the Disney Springs Cast and the whole Walt Disney World team on the spectacular reopening of Disney Springs this week. It was a special moment and one I will never forget as I move onto my new role. To all of the Cast Members who have warmly welcomed me into the Walt Disney World family….Thank You. To all of our guests that have stopped to say “hello” to me….Thank You. While my time here at WDW was relatively short, it was incredibly special. Our Resort will now be in the caring hands of @jeffvahle …an incredible leader and an amazing person. I will miss you all greatly. Please take care. #ThankYou #DisneyCastLife #DisneyParks #WaltDisneyWorld #magichasaname
Of course, this was a special personal occasion for Josh D’Amaro as well since he recently received a promotion to being Chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences, and Products. He operated as President of Disneyland Resort in 2018 and was named President of Walt Disney World Resort in 2019. It’s been an amazing journey for Josh D’Amaro at the Walt Disney Company and he eagerly awaits the next step in his new role.
We look forward to seeing the next phase of reopening at Disney Springs!
