New “ily” Doll Range Has Completely Taken Over This Magic Kingdom Gift Store
Have you seen the latest new Disney toy craze sweeping through stores lately?
Move over Munchlings, nuiMOs, and Wishables… the Disney “ily 4EVER” dolls are most fashionable, trendy, and in-demand items for 2023!
These gorgeous dolls have been popping up everywhere since the new year, with their princess-y personas and enviable sense of Disney style.
They’re in the parks, online at shopDisney, and even in Target... but it’s one particular store acquisition on the dolls’ journey to success that has got guests talking recently…
You’ve been to Bonjour Village Gifts in the Magic Kingdom, right? The friendly, cottage-core store tucked away in New Fantasyland, right in the cinnamon-scented shadow of Gaston’s Tavern.
Well, our MickeyBlog reporters were there the other day, and were very surprised to see that the type of wares on sale in this shop has completely changed since our last visit, with the store now totally devoted to stocking the “ily” dolls!
Yep, every corner of the cute and cozy store is now full of the “ily 4EVER” dolls and all their individual accessories. From the moment you enter, you’ll be transported right into doll heaven!
While we do love these dolls and think they make a fun addition to the Disney merchandise marketplace, this change does come as quite the surprise. Just last week, Bonjour Village Gifts was a Disney art store, full of delicate collectibles, figurines, and painted works. The store even occasionally hosted artist signings, too.
So, we can appreciate how jarring it might be to find the store now completely overrun with toys, instead!
Looking at the photos, you can see that there are still thematic props (such as books and other trinkets) still placed on the highest shelves around the store, to keep in with the Fantasyland store’s original vibe.
Remember how, when this store first opened, it was originally full of Beauty and the Beast-inspired wares? Well, it’s nice to see that some evidence of this is still in place, despite how the large, multicolored heart motifs and balloons to match the “ily” range don’t exactly match the atmosphere.
So, next time you’re passing through New Fantasyland in the Magic Kingdom, expect to see Bonjour Village Gifts now full of the “ily 4EVER” doll range.
If you’re looking for art, we’d suggest you head on over to Epcot instead, or even Disney Springs. But, if you’re hunting for the perfect new “ily 4EVER” doll for yourself or a loved one, we’re thrilled to say that this is just the place for you.
Are you a fan of “ily 4EVER” dolls? Or would you prefer to see Bonjour Village Gifts return to selling art instead?
