PHOTOS - Disneybounding comes to Walt Disney World with The Dress Shop

The Marketplace Co-Op at Disney Springs will soon open The Dress Shop, offering a collection of Disneybounding outfits.

In a posting by Steven Miller on the official Disney Parks Blog, Disney Parks merchandiser Donna Sorrow said, “We designed The Dress Shop collection for guests who want to emulate their favorite Disney characters or theme park attractions in a fun, retro way. These items aren’t costumes, rather the collection contains perfect outfits for guests who have a passion for Disney style.”

“The dress styles are classic in design and contain incredible little details,” continued Donna. “Yet all the styles have modern fits which make them wonderful outfits to wear when visiting Disney Parks.”

Outfits include nods to Disney attractions such as Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room, “it’s a small world,” The Haunted Mansion, and the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

The entire collection at The Dress Shop on Cherry Tree Lane opens inside the accessories boutique at the Marketplace Co-Op in Disney Springs on March 31 2017. Some items will also be available mid-April at the Magic Kingdom, but will not be sold online or in the Shop Disney Parks app.

I've thought that a lot about the mini-stores in the Co-op Marketplace... Many of them really deserve full store locations, like the Disneybound shop or 28 & Main. I think people would be a lot more enthusiastic for the Town Center area if there were less mall-type stores, and more individual storefronts for those kind of niche Disney products. I think it says a lot that the most crowded area in Disney Springs still seems to be the World of Disney area.

I went to the Dress Shop in November, and this really needs to be in its own building. It was a little disorganized in places (there was a massive pile of clothes in the dressing room), but I loved the selection of clothes (I bought the Pirates dress). Disney is missing out on the male market though. There could easily be corresponding choices for men (or anyone who wants to wear a suit) to go with the skirts and dresses.

They also need to make fewer activewear polos and more business casual polos. I can't stand the look/feel of the 'active' polos. There was a Grumpy one a few years ago (Grumpy icon instead of Mickey), but by the time I knew it existed, it was almost complexly sold out, and I couldn't get my size.

My husband literally lives in those polo shirts with the small Mickey embroidered on the chest. He claims they're the most comfortable polos out there. Unfortunately, over the years, they've become extremely limited in their color selection, or even availability in general. So I definitely agree with you! We recently found one with R2-D2 instead of Mickey, which is awesome. I know my husband would be thrilled if they continued going down that route with more options.

I'd settle for more well designed polos and plain shirts that one can wear out of the part and not look like a tourist.

Matching ties and jackets would actually be a smart move for Disney

It is too bad they don't think of guys when they design a lot of stuff ...

Now THAT is the way to Disneybound!

I've also seen some Disney fan sites offering them at about a 50% markup. I'm a little irked that Disney is allowing this to happen. Disney routinely limits the pieces of merchandise that you can purchase (to prevent this exact scenario), so why aren't they doing it here?

Unfortunately, it looks like people bought the dresses in the Dress Shop, and immediately took to ebay to sell them at a higher price :( :mad::arghh: According to someone on DisBoards, the only dresses in the store yesterday were HM sizes 2XL and 3XL, one ToT dress 3XL and Minnie 1XL, 2XL, 3XL. Idk what Disney's plan is going forward. They'll obviously be competing with ebay and Amazon, but they really need to get some dresses on their online store. That might help fight the resales.

That seems like really poor planning? Considering how popular Dapper Day is, you would have thought that they would have had more dresses created.

Thank you for the information, but man, that bites. I'm glad to know so I won't have my hopes up, though.

Yes I head from someone who was there yesterday, the store is basically stripped bare, even the display mannequins. A lot of bags have been brought in to fill the space, but it looks like they are expecting stock to be gone for sometime, as they have removed all of the artwork and stories of each design.

I'm seeing on other boards that the dress inventory is almost completely wiped out with no word as to when it will be replenished. Can anyone verify (or better yet rebut) this? Thanks!
