Star Wars fans have another option for shopping at Walt Disney World with the opening of the Star Wars Galactic Outpost.

Located on the West Side at Disney Springs just across from Starbucks, Star Wars Galactic Outpost is now open and replaces D-Street, which closed on December 14 2015. D-Street opened back in April 2010 as part of Disney's rollout of Vinylmation collectible figures.

Star Wars Galactic Outpost offers t-shirts, collectibles, toys and more. Opening times are 10am to 11pm Sunday through Thursday, and 10am to 11:30pm Friday to Saturday.

Like so many things before they slaughtered the golden goose

Just realized you replied to my post..... Sorry for the delay... I agree that it's sad, but it did always seem like a fad, and it's been ripped off by it seems like every company, so I'm not surprised about its downfall. I although couldn't find ANY at mouse gear last week...

Every area seems to be down to one Vinylmation location now. With the exception of the Star Wars ones being sold in the Star Wars stores, Springs has them at the Pin Trading Pavilion and Epcot has them at Mouse Gear and Studios has them at the Stage One store and MK has them at the Emporium and DAK has them at Chester and Hesters. Kinda sad to see the hobby die down so much.

And it's so much less fun taking down than putting up. Those cast members just aren't as motivated to takedown

It takes them the whole of November to decorate the hotels, parks and Disney Springs so it takes most of January to get it all down again.

Why is disney springs Christmas trim still up. Looks left over and tacky.

They didn't get rid of all other merch over night, it has been fasing out. I don't think there was any non Star Wars merch when I was there in November.

Seems to have all been sold to cast members, or moved to an appropriate store.

Interesting. What did they do with the rest of the stuff? They always seemed to have a decent amount of pop culture collectible type stuff in there too. I would occasionally pick something up there that I had never seen before.

I was going to make a post about this about 2 weeks ago, but I thought someone else would have already asked. All they've really changed is the signage, and just put only Star Wars Vinylmation on the conveyor belt in the window display. The newest set of Star Wars Vinylmation is the only Vinylmation they sell there now, and as of last week, I couldn't find ANY Vinylmation in all of Epcot..... So I expect Vinylmation to be a dying fad, unfortunately.

It was done overnight.

I was in there on Saturday. They still have the original decor with Star Wars stuff put quickly over it. I thought it was weird when I was inside and was wondering what was up with the decor.

As far as I can tell, Star Wars Galactic Outpost opened on December 15, 2015. Does anyone know if D Street was closed at all or if this was an overnight transformation?
