The details required to complete the transfer of The Disney Store name and products licenses to The Children’s Place have begun to emerge. It remains unclear if cast members will retain any Disney discount other than at the Disney Stores themselves. However, it is clear that the Walt Disney Company will have to give up the ‘TheDisneyStore.com’ domain once used as the online site for The Disney Catalog and other Disney Products. The new online store will be called ‘DisneyDirect.com’ and is open at that address today.
Having worked for a company that was bought out I can sympathize a little with the current Disney Store Employees. My best too all of them as this sale enters the final stages.
