PHOTOS - APEX by Sunglass Hut signage goes up in The Landing at Disney Springs

APEX by Sunglass Hut now has signage in place in The Landing district of Disney Springs.

The new store is located just opposite Paradiso 37 in one of the new units created in the former Pleasure Island area. Chapel Hats was the first store to put signage up earlier this week, with a whole host more to open up in the next few months.

Sunglass Hut has expanded its presence at Walt Disney World this year, with new stores opening at the Magic Kingdom and Typhoon Lagoon. The new store will also join Sunglass Hut Icon on the West Side at Downtown Disney. The APEX line of stores targets the sports range of the Sunglass Hut range.

More of the Apex shop. The inner path has stairs but wheels have ways to get to the inner walkway .

You will still have people waiting for tables at the restaurants who will pop in to the stores. I think it's a pretty good spot to be for certain types of stores.

Thanks for sharing. That makes a lot more sense - it did look unfinished.

Hardscaping is not yet complete. The decorative stone is already around the planters at the restroom building just a few doors up the street. More to come.

Maybe it makes sense and looks better in-person, but what's with the concrete planters and retaining walls outside this new strand of stores? No decorative stone or ledge? it looks cheap.

Foot traffic will always be fine - once parking and roads are complete, the locals will come back again.

For now; how will the store fare once the other garage and the new shopping district opens?

I think they will do really well. With everyone parking on the West Side, all guests that want to go to the Marketplace have to pass by this row of stores. They certainly have a lot of foot traffic passing their store.

A decent number of people shopping around in there. Nice. Thank you for the photo update.

Apex by Sunglass Hut opened at 1 PM today. Photo update as of Friday, Jan 30. Guests will like the high-tech display screen (seen at the left in the second photo) where you can try out your new sunglasses with/without glare protection. There will be a wind machine above this screen (to be operational soon) to simulate riding a bike or skiing.

Photo update as of Thursday, Jan 29. I just happen to walk by as some CMs were opening the door. The inside displays are ready to go. I'm guessing the store opening is very soon, perhaps within days.
