First Glimpse Inside New World Of Disney Stores
Both World of Disney locations in Downtown Disney at Disneyland and Disney Springs at Walt Disney World are gearing up for their grand re-openings. The incredibly popular Disney merchandise stores have been undergoing major transformations over the last few months.
With a new contemporary look, the spaces have been re-imagined, making the shopping experience better. New store layouts and added magical touches give guests the feeling that they are inside an animator’s studio. We now have some sneak peeks at the new look! Let’s check it out!
Shoppers can expect to see elements of a studio from back in the days of Walt. Intricate brickwork gives a vintage feel to the space and classic draftsman desks are found throughout. You can even find classic photography featuring Walt Disney’s original animators known as the ‘Nine Old Men’.
What is a Disney store without a little magic? Guests can find these touches all throughout the space when artwork and stories come to life with a little pixie dust.
New merchandise, along with the classics are lining the walls and stands, ready for the grand re-openings. But it’s not just the store that will have a new look. Cast Members will be sporting re-imagined looks as well! Their style will be modern-fit jeans and plaid shirts with iconic Mickey Mouse silhouettes.
The stores will also have new, reusable shopping bags for guests to take all of their loot home in! These bags will feature the classic Disney characters of Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy, and Pluto. World of Disney will be the first shops in all of the parks to offer these environmentally friendly bags. They will be priced at $1 each and are made from 80% recycled materials. Disney is looking to do it’s part in significantly reducing single-use plastics by mid-2019.
World of Disney has been open in sections while undergoing it’s transformation. Guests have still been able to stop in for their favorite merchandise but haven’t been able to all of the new elements. The grand re-openings are set for October 26th for the Downtown Disney location at Disneyland Resort and October 27th for the Disney Springs location at the Walt Disney World Resort.
