Disney Springs was the first major area on Walt Disney World’s property to re-open post COVID-19 closures. The Springs is home to a number of restaurants, shops, and entertainment spots. Over the last few years, Disney Springs has morphed from a forgotten area into a huge draw for guests.
Once reopened, Disney Springs was a bit of a grab bag of what was opened and what was still “temporarily closed”. One of the locations that remained closed after The Springs reopened was The VOID.
For those who don’t know what The VOID is, the company’s website describes it as the following: “The VOID is a whole-body, fully immersive experience, with you, your friends and family physically inside the action”.
Word on the Street: It is now believed that The VOID will remain closed even after Disney Springs has fully reopened. Although some online sites point to difficulties from COVID-19 as the reason for the closure, the Downtown Disney (Disneyland) VOID location had to shut their doors due to licensing issues.
Guests who visit The VOID’s official website will find a letter stating the VR experience is still temporally closed for safety purposes.
For those guests who visit The VOID’s landing page on Walt Disney World’s official website, they will be greeted with an error message stating “Someone Ate The Page”. This error message is not completely uncommon to see on a Disney website, but given the news from Disneyland this summer plus the rumors circulating of The VOID’s (Disney Springs) closure, more credit can be given to the error page. As I wrote this article I also attempted to find what the My Disney Experience App showed from The VOID. After using both the map and search features on the app, it appears The VOID has been removed from the offerings listed for Disney Springs.
There has been no official word from Disney about the future of The VOID, but we will update you as news becomes available.
Have you ever tried an experience at The VOID? What was it like?
