Since Disney Springs is now fully open, I think, and the crowds are getting larger, during the weekend....will there be more parking areas?

Not likely. Parking is how they purposefully limit attendance. Disney doesn't want packed walkways. And the stores and restaurant are also at a state-mandated reduced capacity limiting the number of people. Opening up new parking would just add long lines outside all the businesses.

Slight clarification there, per the Governor’s executive order from a few days ago, there are no longer state mandates on any retail or restaurant. Disney as property owner is continuing to mandate capacity requirements, temp screening, and mask usage and there have been no major changes to the way the Springs has been operating since reopening.

I was there for lunch yesterday, crowds were sparse at noon but slowly building through the early afternoon. When we arrived at 11:30 only the Orange garage was open.

Thanks....I'll just get there a little earlier then usual....if that's the only parking we can use it will reach it's car limitation quicker, with this mandate lifted....

Whoops. Forgot about that.

Yeah, Disney's enforcing their own capacity limits.

Drove over tonight hoping to grab a bite to eat and its packed. Seems like it’s been at capacity for a few hours. Tons of cars driving around the area and police blocking the garages.

Photo update as of Wednesday, November 18, 2020. Opening last Friday (November 13) the Pearl Factory is located in the same kiosk where it was previously.
