World of Disney expansion
Posted: Thursday May 7, 2015 10:05am EDT by WDWMAGIC Staff

The World of Disney store at Downtown Disney Marketplace is undergoing a large expansion as part of the Disney Springs redevelopment project.

The entire back section of the store is being expanded out into what was the sidewalk and perimeter roadway. During the work, the store is remaining open as normal.

That’s Disneyland. But the two are very similar.

The reopening ceremony

Yesterday’s in NYC I notice that they were working on the logo for Disney Store in Time Square but not touching anything in the store. Possible name change?

Wouldn't it be great if there app...that tells you where stuff is in the parks? Like a Shop Parks app? :eek: WoD would be a freaking nightmare if they had EVERYthing in it.

*sigh* In Downtown Disney's hayday, it was glorious. But, they did let it die a slow and painful death.

I definitely didn't say DTD was better Dtd sucked especially after pleasure island was allowed to die by opening it up then killing it entirely There's just no Disney at Disney springs, at least not in the obvious sense. No most malls aren't as fancy, but that alone doesn't make something Disney.

Sorry it looked it was stuck in the 90s and not in a good way.

How is Stitch hideous? If you want plain n boring go to a regular mall. Literally ALL of the "Disney" has been removed from Disney Springs. There wasn't much left to begin with but now what little there was has been removed from World of Disney The characters on the outside were whimsical not tacky. Why must everything be the same lame at D'S as it is out at a regular mall?

It’s certainly in a location that a guest could wonder back to. But if I were a cast member I would not post a picture from back there.

And that's why I was concerned about posting it. This CM has a pretty decent sized following on Twitter so I doubt she would do something that would get her in trouble. But...this confused me. Awkward spot I suppose.

It’s not exactly on-stage either.

Looks like it might be around the left side of property control ... which is technically not back stage.
