This last weekend the Downtown Disney District reopened to the public as part of the Disneyland Resort’s phased reopening. Currently, it is the only part of the phased reopening that is happening while the rest is on hold. With the reopening of Downtown Disney District came the reopening of many of its shops and restaurants. The most popular destination for guests at the Downtown Disney District seems to be World of Disney.

DAPS MAGIC team member Doug Marsh stopped by the Downtown Disney District and World of Disney on Monday afternoon. As he was there, he took quite a few pictures to share with the DAPS MAGIC twitter. He shared these with quite a few captions as well. Below is a pictorial tour of World of Disney as experienced by Doug. We hope you enjoy it.

No bag check. They have you hold everything and they do a hands-free wand over.

We start a blog entitled 30 Years Ago at Disneyland. Disneyland re-releases shirt design from 30 years ago. Coincidence?

65th birthday also sees the return of several (dare I say) “blast to the past” retro designs.

 

It’s the Disney Channel Grrrrl Powered version of West Side Story.

Minnie Mouse themed dog socks. In two sizes, of course.

OK… is it just me or is the idea of selling Maleficent’s dismembered wings kind of… creepy?

I think they missed a good bet on this one. The tongue… should be… in the nose.
