Disney Tails and the previously announced Lovepop will both open mid-October 2018 in the Marketplace Co-Op at Disney Springs.

Disney Tails will open October 12 2018, and will bring Disney flair to pet owners.  Two existing character collections (Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse) and two new character collections (Haunted Mansion and Star Wars) are set to debut when the store opens

Located in the center of the Marketplace Co-Op and opening mid-October, Lovepop will offer its intricate 3D paper sculpture greeting cards. You can examples of their products at the Lovepop website.

Lovepop founders Wombi Rose and John Wise became best friends at Webb Institute training to become naval architects. After school, the duo traveled to Vietnam where they discovered incredible hand-crafted paper cards.

Rose and Wise launched Lovepop out of the Harvard Innovation Lab in late 2014. Since then, they were named to the 2015 Techstars class, nominated for 50 on Fire by BostInno, and appeared on season 7 of "Shark Tank," where Kevin "Mr. Wonderful" O'Leary became an investor.

The Marketplace Co-Op has been home to numerous stores since its opening, with the location designed to continually change out shops to offer new innovative products.

Oooohhhhhhhhh. I concur! This looks like it could’ve been part of the original expansion. Super well done! Thanks for sharing!

You know, I've ordered cards from them online and I have an annual pass to WDW and live in FL but I've never been to their shop at the co-op OR the kiosk.. With the size of DTD and the situation with the parking garages and such, I've found it a bit of a challenge to convince a young child it's a place he wants to be in the middle of a trip to the parks. That said, I'm glad that by the time we finally get there, they'll have their own climate controlled place to shop... Assuming they don't close up before we get a chance. 🤷‍♂️

They upgraded from the co-op to a kiosk about a year ago. I've seen people in there lots of times - and buying more than 1 card at a time. I have all of the Star Wars cards mounted on art board on display. They are that good.

Seems unlikely to be true if they're moving from the co-op to an actual storefront of their own. Someone must be buying 'em. ;)

Not only was I mistaken, but also got the spelling for Ron Jon wrong. I give up! 🤷‍♀️😅

No, Ron Jons doesn't use that space.

True! Last try: 😄 Looks like it'll take a bite from Ron John's.
