World of Disney expansion

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.

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.

The whole WestSide from DisneyStyle to Candy Cauldron is "Disney" and the entire Marketplace is still "Disney", so I don't buy that argument.

*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.

I see this said a lot, but I genuinely have never been to a mall anywhere in the America that looks half as beautiful as Disney Springs. To me, its truly only something Disney could pull off. I try to have an open mind toward other opinions but I really can't take opinions seriously from those who think Downtown Disney was better. Again maybe it is because I only knew DTD from 2008-2015 when it was a miserable dump, but still. Disney Springs is, to me, one of the top 5 greatest things WDW has done in the last five years.

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.
