Changes Coming to World of Disney at Walt Disney World

Disney Springs has been undergoing many different changes in order to create the most amazing and immersive shopping experiences for guests.  Disney Parks Blog has announced that there are now major plans made for a redesign at World of Disney in Disney Springs.  World of Disney is one of the largest gift shops in Walt Disney World where guests can shop for just about all things Disney from home decor to jewelry to toys and more.  The popular shopping location will be completely re-imagined, with development starting around mid-February of 2018.


Per Disney Parks Blog, “When the interior redesign work is completed, guests will discover the products they love from Disney Parks in a dynamic and distinctly Disney retail environment.”

The work on the retail store is expected to be completed in phases and will span throughout 2018.  Guests will still be able to shop while the changes in the store are in progress, so be sure to keep visiting and check out the progress when you are in the area!  During the refurbishment, there will be Disney Springs merchandise locations that will continue to carry some of the merchandise from World of Disney.

The World of Disney store located in the Downtown Disney District in California will also undergo renovations as well for a complete re-design.  Disney Parks Blog will be sharing updates throughout the process of the transformation.

What do you guys think about this huge re-design?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
