Live From the M&M Store Opening at Disney Springs
It’s a sweet Saturday morning, Disney friends!
If you follow MickeyBlog, you probably saw our EXCLUSIVE sneak peek into the new M&M Store at Disney Springs last night. We got the opening scoop and were back this morning for the 10:00am soft opening! Our excited MickeyBlogger was first in the Disney Springs queue!
Just last week the store still looked like it had a long way to go before opening. But the final M&Ms went up and the construction walls are down! This much-anticipated addition to Disney Springs’ West Side is ready to go!
You certainly can’t miss this store! The bright yellow storefront is accented by the colorful M&Ms. Even the door handles are themed!
Of course we grabbed a selfie at the new adorable selfie station out front.
A grumpy red and cheery yellow are happy to pose with you!
Just before 10:00, employees were out front, ready to open the doors to the public for the first time!
When we walked in the store we were greeted by a round of applause by happy employees and offered the chance to create the first custom printed M&Ms to commemorate the occasion!
An employee showed us how to customize our own M&Ms with your favorite character, your logo, your dog’s face. Whatever you’d like to “melt in your mouth, not in your hand”!
Our MickeyBloggers chose the “Mickey Mix” color combo and added Disney themed designs – the Castle, Spaceship Earth, Space Mountain and the Mickey icon! A few minutes later our M&Ms “brewed” and came out of the yellow chute on this wall!
The store employee packaged them for us in our custom selected M&Ms container.
These are the first custom printed M&Ms in the Disney Springs store!
Other interactive elements are in-store but not quite ready yet. Like this fun Mirror Mirror activity that we’re sure kids will love!

There’s also a new “Disney wall” in town with this pink and red wall display! When viewed by the naked eye (not with a camera) you can’t see the large white “m” in the middle!
Of course, Covid-19 safety precautions are still in place. Masks, distancing and capacity guidelines are still being enforced.
The store greets you with a rainbow wall of the chocolate-covered candies. You can personalize your own M&M combination or choose a premade color combo from the “Flavors” wall – “The Sweetest Wall of All”! Custom flavors include Mermaid, Unicorn, Mickey and Ocean mixes.
Classic chocolate and peanut varieties are available but so are dark chocolate, caramel, peanut butter, and a whole range of flavors and fillings that are only available at M&M stores.
Over 100 combinations await you!
An employee mans the line entrance. For distancing, only one entrance and exit is available for the custom mix queue.
If candy isn’t your thing, there is a ton of M&M merchandise to choose from! These brightly colored displays are gorgeous and make the store feel so lively and cheerful!
You can grab colorful swag to showcase your favorite M&M color.
Or show off your M&M love with a Mickey Mouse nuance in classic red, yellow, and black themes.
There’s a seasonal display up front. Currently a lovely pink and red Valentine’s day theme just screams “sweet”!
Not everything screams “M&M”. We really loved this tye-dyed Orlando spirit jersey with the brand’s tagline on the front!
