APEX by Sungless Hut opened last week at The Landing, joining Chapel Hats as one of the first stores to open as part of the Disney Springs redevelopment.


The new store is located along the row of stores built on the hill of the former Pleasure Island, and can be found opposite Paradiso 37.

Inside, you'll find a full range of sunglasses from the Luxotica brands, including Ray-Ban, Oakley, Persol, Maui Jim and more. Sunglass Hut also operates a store on the West Side, Island Supply at the Magic Kingdom, and Singapore Shades at Typhoon Lagoon. Differing from the other locations at Walt Disney World, APEX focusses on sports eyewear more than fashion wear.

The store is open Sun - Thu 10am to 11pm and Fri - Sat 10am to 11:30pm. Click the gallery for more photos.

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.
