Disney's Earport shop in Orlando International Airport closes today to begin a 4 month refurbishment.

Following on from the redesign of the airport's other Disney location, the Magic of Disney, expect to see a modern design that is similar to recent Disney Store redesigns, with a very open design, bright lighting, and minimal clutter.

Expect a November 2019 reopening of Disney's Earport.

Mickey C. Oswald is a trendy jet setter who’s favorite part of traveling is the duty free shop at the airport. He has traveled the world and is not bringing the style of his favorite airport stores to Disney visitors at Orlando International Airport North Terminal.

Also a well-thought out clean and clear store should show off the merchandise more (think of Uniqlo or Apple). Whereas a store full of figurines and props makes people go there to look at the props and not to actually look at merchandise. It can also be hard to "see" the good stuff inbetween all the clutter. And if the merchandise on display doesn't make the store look good, they need to get better things to sell. If the only reason to visit is to look at the store, its not a store.

Can't wait for the store refit just to read the over the top convoluted backstory some imaginear has written to try and make people believe it's not bland. I am convinced with some projects they spend more time writing the back stories than designing places.

Bob Chapek continues his demagicnization of all Disney retail.

What your missing is that the retail apocalypse is only going to be reversed by imitating Apple.

I think outdated is a better term for a lot of 1990s WDW designs. Like the hotels for instance just because it may have gone with the theme doesn’t mean it needs to stay the same. People are already calling foul on a design they haven’t seen yet it which is ridiculous.

I’m referring to your constant overuse of the “crying laughing” emoji whenever you see an opinion you disagree with.

Yeah, and you're basically rest home age 🙄

Right back atcha. I happen to like much of the theming Disney used in its stores during the 90s...it was what set them apart from every other store in the mall and what made shopping there fun. (I generally hate shopping, but would go out of my way to visit the old Disney stores.) And for the record, at your age - you're still a kid.

It sickens me everyone always demands WDW think of the opinions of a bunch of kids. Screw them

I never looked at this site as an ideal place to troll, but whatever floats your boat.
