Magic Kingdom Replaces The Carpet in Big Top Souvenirs After Flooding
One of our favorite gift shops in all of Walt Disney World has to be Big Top Souvenirs located in Storybook Circus across from Dumbo the Flying Elephant! Where else can you get a slushie to sip on while you do your souvenir shopping!
However, things are looking a bit different under the Big Top these days because the gift shop has just replaced all of the flooring.
As a result of recent flooding to the shop, Big Top Souvenirs needed to shut its doors earlier this month to swap out the old water-damaged carpet for the new version you see below which resembles wood planking.
Though the carpet change is very subtle to visitors that aren’t at Disney very often we miss the old version which continued the circus theme with the sort of fabric and seams of a Big Top tent.
We also felt that the stock here was slightly diminished during our visit. Some of this may be a result of flood damage or may just the transition after the new carpeting was laid. We’ll be keeping an eye on Big Top during our visits to Disney World this week and promise to keep you posted!
Big Top has been hit with difficulties as of late. During the end of last year, the shop was shuttered due to a fire and then flooding was reported in early February. Hopefully, it will be smooth sailing for Dumbo and friends from here on out!
