Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs
Posted: Thursday April 11, 2019 5:15pm ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

The new Disney Ticket Center is now open in the Town Center at Disney Springs.

Located next to Blaze Pizza behind D-Luxe Burger, the new store offers assistance with Disney theme park ticket purchases, upgrades, Annual Passes and dining reservations.

You can also pick-up guide maps for the parks and Magic Bands.

The new store is a great way to save time at the theme park entrances, and get tickets before heading to the parks.

The ticketing center is indeed open and has been for a while. I have no idea about the OCSO location.

I’d be interested to know if Tables in Wonderland can be purchased here.

“Disney Ticket Centers” were also deployed in Character Warehouse as a part of this roll out.

This is a good idea . I would rather do tickets here then in front of the park where I feel pressured from people behind me . And this looks more subdued where I’m not in a hurry . To figure out what I need to buy ..

I know Basin ships home and has for years. I typically only travel with carryons, so I’ll ship my lotions, etc from there.

Totally agree but high traffic and lots of sales on low priced stuff doesn't automatically translate into high profits for the location. They're way undercutting Disney's own stores while paying licensing to Disney for the Disney-branded stuff they sell. Both they and Disney seem to be perfectly okay with this. One would have to wonder why. That said, prior to the Disney Springs location, I'd never even heard of this company. Since it's opened, in addition to stopping there many times, I've also ordered from them three times online. Because I first went online to sign up for their emails using a web address provided on a promotional card with an offer they were distributing at that location, I know they know where I as a customer originated from. My experience is also anecdotal but my own shopping behavior over the years would support the notion that there is value in that location well beyond that store's profits, especially for a brand that is not yet a household name in most of the US. Most (but not all) of the stuff I bought online had nothing Disney on it, either, which means they successfully converted me from a tourist looking for Disney shirts that don't cost $30 to a real customer of Uniqlo. ... And I completely agree with you on the winter thing! Some cold weather stuff makes sense. A lot of these people are going back to cold environments at the end of their week there, but yeah, there should definitely be evergreen Florida wear on those racks, too!

Just anecdotal, but my experience of Uniqlo is that there is never an empty line at the cashiers. Comparing that to my experience of clothes stores at giant malls (I'm from Jersey, every corner has one), the business Uniqlo is doing is astounding. It also helps how competitive their prices are compared to the other upscale stores at DS. And having a big inventory of Disney branded clothing. Now, if we can just teach Uniqlo that just because it's December, they really don't need to change all their inventory to winter clothing. Couldn't find a pair of shorts there in December and the weather was in the 80s. Crazy.

** Editing to add that, I think there is still growth potential too, for the very reasons I'm outlining in what I posted below ** We're talking corporate-speak, here, so it's impossible to know. In some cases I'm sure that is the metric businesses are referring to when they say that but in others, definitely not. I don't know if you've ever been on the side of crafting messages to be released either to the public or to executives that are intended to create a perception without deliberately saying things that could be accused of being direct lies or even just misleading. I - and I don't say this proudly - have been. To that end, I'm inclined to believe if they wanted to say "most profitable" they'd have just said "most profitable" because it removes all ambiguity. The fact they used a statement that can be interpreted multiple ways suggests they wanted it to be positive and still honest, without delving into the specifics of what they mean. "'highest performing' is synonymous with most profitable." may be what they want you to believe but those are your words - not theirs and it makes sense that if any of them were running these as effective loss-leaders, they wouldn't want to advertise that for a variety of business reasons that aren't Machiavellian in nature. That's all I'm really trying to say. Bringing Coke back up, it's hard to imagine that any of their stores like this one (I know of at least a few across the US) contribute much to their corporate bottom line. It's apparent that isn't the point of them, though, so their legitimate metric for success would be entirely different and perhaps, hard to effectively communicate to the public and general shareholders even if it still held value to the company. Coke's a bad example though because they're possibly the biggest brand-awareness marketer in the history of business. Them doing it (to great success) is a no-brainer. It's all speculation for you and me both, of course. I'm sure rent is crazy high in Disney Springs and it should be. It's high-profile real estate. I'm also sure Disney isn't expecting 100% occupancy and their ability to plug their own branded stuff in to fill gaps was probably in the cards all along. I hardly see this as a sign of trouble. It would make sense that rent there would make it very challenging for any business looking to make great profits off of these locations which is why I'm inclined to think that a smartly run one, with deep enough pockets, wouldn't expect to. In fact, if any of these guys are running outlets in town, I'm sure they would be plenty happy if they could connect an uptick in sales at those locations to the opening of a retail location with higher prices in Disney Springs that also brings in some form of revenue.* Enough of that would still qualify as "highest performing" in my book and be making everyone involved happy. :) *Disney's own local outlet stores get as much business as they do because of their proximity to WDW. They don't compete with WDW because people willing to consider $4 for a mug labeled Disney Cruises 2018 isn't someone who was likely to spend $20 on a mug that said Walt Disney World 2019. Just the same, it's impossible to deny that business at the outlet can directly be attributed to the local mothership and their higher prices. I mean, $4 is about what a basic mug that isn't defective or outdated is worth, right? Where else on earth does a mug advertising something not at that location from a year before your trip for that price sound like a good deal?

I'm sure the rents are HIGH but overall it seems most places have stayed in business. Though we wont truly know until the leases come up for renewal in a few years, but I'm sure both Disney and the business have run their numbers.

My guess is Disney carefully prices rents to ensure success. Probably takes a lot of work to figure out. But it is in everyone's interest to have each succeed. If Disney was extorting rents there would be a lot more turnover. They seem to have found a good balance. IMO.
