The new Walt Disney World Store is now open on International Drive, bringing merchandise and ticket sales to the busy tourist corridor.

The Walt Disney World store offers theme park tickets, merchandise, and a Disney Vacation Club Virtual Discovery Station where you can look inside DVC accommodations on a large format screen.

The store follows a similar look to the Orlando Airport Disney stores, and is a great option for some last minute gifts or pre-arrival ticket purchases.

The new store is located near to Mango's at the Hollywood Plaza Parking Garage.

I only have a fleeting awareness of them, but my understanding is that there are regulations regarding brightness, movement, etc. for digital billboards but they tend to extend so many feet from the highway. The easy loophole is to build something big enough and just far away enough that these rules don’t apply.

It's a heck of a traffic distraction at night - especially at the Kirkman/Universal entry ramp that merges onto a merge lane.

All the electronic billboards should have maximum brightness set by regulation. IMO When they are that bright at night I look away and it kinda defeats their purpose

Drove by this on I4 on the way back from the Sanford airport last week at approximately 1230am - it's BRIGHT...oof

In a nutshell

So you mean no real investment so a lot of extra marketing ?

SirwalterraleighJul 27, 2022

They’re done with capex in Orlando for quite some time - my theory - so they will do this kinda thing to draw attention to themselves as they repackage and sell the standard/old product. It happened post millennium…they did it for stretches in the Iger years too.

Eloberate if you will?

SirwalterraleighJul 27, 2022

I think it’s the first move in a “window dressing” period in Orlando. We’ve seen it before.

I still don’t really see the need of this thing…..it seems like a bunch of money down the drain over egos. Makes me hope epic is a juggernaut of a park.

The response should always be how is the weather and where in the route are you?

SirwalterraleighJul 27, 2022

Disney has an fool proof defense for that… You just buy a $29.99 glow necklace and the “power of YOUR dreams” will see you through. …Don’t be late for your ADR or you’ll be charged

Here's a photo of Universal testing out their next fireworks show... rumor has it it'll be pointed south-southeast.
