CORRECTION: Disney Springs is open, people are actually going

Hey, we get some things right, occasionally.

DISNEY SPRINGS, FL — Uncle Walt’s Insider previously reported that no one is going Disney Springs in spite of it being open for business. It turns out that might have not been 100% correct. Or 50% correct. Or at all correct.

It was a big misunderstanding. Our own Uncle Walt drove to Orlando for over 48 hours straight (the drive from Svalbard is pretty long) and thought he had arrived. In his sleep-deprived state, he thought that OWA, a park and entertainment/shopping district in Foley, AL, was Disney Springs.

Walt is sorry (I can’t believe I can get away with typing that)

OWA is open, both the park and the shops, but no one is really going to the shops. We must humbly ask forgiveness from both of our readers for this mistake. Please write to us here to let us know you got our apology.

Also, before anyone states it was irresponsible for Uncle Walt to stay up for 48 hours driving, he wasn’t the one doing the driving. The drivers switched off for rest, he just stayed up the whole time. We would like to apologize for any Disney “news” sites that we may have offended, with one exception: WDWNTT.
