What’s The Future of Big Top Souvenirs?
There are some changes happening over in Storybook Circus. The area of the park that is home to the Barnstormer and Dumbo the Flying Elephant has seen a couple of noteworthy closures since Magic Kingdom’s Post-Covid reopening.
We popped round to Storybook Circus this morning and noticed that the large Big Top Souvenirs sign had been removed from the tent-like structure that previously housed the gift shop.
Below you’ll see what the original sign looked like.
2021 is really the year that Disney World (especially the Magic Kingdom) is looking to tidy-up the property to make way for Disney’s 50th Anniversary celebration which kicks off on October 1st.
In addition to Big Top Souvenirs being closed, Disney has also closed the adjacent Pete’s Silly Sideshow where historically guests could meet their favorite Disney friends all dressed up in circus garb.
Disney has not made any official statements regarding the future of Big Top Souvenir though various online sources seem to think that it is simply being remodeled.
Whether the souvenir shop returns after an update or Disney decides to re-theme the tent, we’re pretty excited to see what the future holds.
This area admittedly is at a disadvantage due to the closure of the Walt Disney World Railroad. You see Storybook Circus faces the back of Tomorrowland where the TRON Coaster is currently being built. Disney World had to close the railroad as aspects of the Tomorrowland Coaster were interfering with the train. Storybook Circus is the area of Fantasyland that had it’s own train station. No train guests means a lot less traffic.
