Get Your Exclusive Sneak Peek into the Newly Reimagined World of Disney at Downtown Disney District at the Disneyland Resort

Are you ready to shop for all your Disney favorites in one exciting new spot? Now you can! The newly reimagined World of Disney shop in Downtown Disney District in the Disneyland Resort is almost open for business and you can get your very own sneak peek right here! We had the honor of stepping into the shop for the soft opening and we can’t wait to share what we saw inside!

The reimagined shop lets guests step into an animator’s studio, inspired by the ones that housed some of Disney’s greatest films! The shops not only come with an all-new theme but an exciting new layout that allows a much easier shopping experience for all guests!

Not only is the shop inspired by Disney’s incredibly rich history in the animation department but guests can see sketches off the artists’ desks first hand! World of Disney not only contains nods to Disney’s “Nine Old Men”, Walt Disney’s original animators, but there are magic effects hidden everywhere for guests to find! You can watch the magic come alive, no matter what you’re shopping for!

In addition to the design elements, the shops will feature a new way to bring home treasured souvenirs and memories from Disney vacations—in specially designed, reusable merchandise bags featuring classic Disney characters like Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, and Donald Duck. The World of Disney stores are the first merchandise locations throughout Disney Parks to offer these bags for $1, which are also environmentally friendly—made from 80% recycled materials. They will help contribute to the company’s broader goal of significantly reducing its use of single-use plastics by mid-2019.

While you can take a look at the shop for yourself now, the grand re-opening dates are on their way! The grand event is slated for October 26 in Downtown Disney District at Disneyland Resort and October 27 in Disney Springs at Walt Disney World Resort.

Are you excited to see this shop for yourself?
