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 long time Disney addict! This love began as a child and stayed with me in my teen years. I completed the Disney College Program, was engaged and honeymooned at Disney, visited WDW while pregnant with each of our two boys, and have brought our boys since they were babies (they are now 5 and 2). We have over 10 Disney World vacations under our belt. Our recent adventure was a big move from St. Louis, MO to Florida! We knew that we needed more Disney magic that just a couple times of year, and we worked hard to make it happen! Now we hit the parks almost every weekend! We are working to dine at every location, experience every attraction and look for every hidden Mickey! We want to be able to say that we have one it all! We are branching into the Cruise Line and are planning a trip to Disneyland in California next year. To say that we are Disney addicts may be an understatement. When I am not at WDW with my family, I am reading Disney blogs and news, crafting (usually Disney décor for our home), planning Disney vacations for others or working on my dissertation for my doctoral program. I am a Project Manager by profession, so I have mastered fitting everything into a tight schedule! We feel we lead an exciting life where we get to spend a lot of time together doing what we love! I love being able to this love and Disney magic with everyone else so that others can make the most of whatever time they get to have at the most magical place on earth!
