Vinylmation hits the D-Street

Last weekend about 300 lucky Annual Passholders got a special preview of the new Vinylmation focused D-Street store in Orlando’s Downtown Disney – Westside. So come join me on a little tour with some trivia thrown in and then stop by for yourself when you come to Walt Disney World.


Annual Passholders line up early in the morning to be the first official guests into the store.


And we’re in. About 100 guests were lined up for the opening. But many more showed up between 8AM and 10:30AM when the store opened to the public for the first time.


This is a one of a kind Mickey Mouse sculpture made from a silicon mold that will eventually be marketed as Vinylmation Ice Cube trays. How cute!


There are exactly 782 Vinylmation Collectibles inside the table that Mickey stands on. This table will serve multiple purposes including designing your own Vinylmation and trading.


When you’re in the store make sure to look up. Much of the decoration comes from the much admired Adventurers Club. So even if you don’t have the experience, you can now visit your memories.


A Giant Hidden Mickey lurks behind the counter.


More Adventurers Club decor.


A bit of humor from Disney’s Imagineers.


The Vinylmation sign in the background lights up with fiber optics and weights 966 lbs. There are two collectible cases under the sign that contain very collectible editions. So rare that the keys for the case aren’t even kept in the store. The Zebra case in the foreground is the famous Zebra Mezzanine from the Adventurers Club.


Many a good time was had on this bench, I’m sure.

    WOW, the orlando D-street is loads better than the one in California!! Very jealous you got to be there!

  3. joe says:

    *sob* it pains my heart to see adventurers club decor in a store that sells plastic (alright, vinyl, whatever) crap for the masses.

  4. Pete Emslie says:

    I agree with Joe. Is there really enough interest in this mediocrity to justify having a store entirely devoted to it? I can’t fathom who would actually want to collect such crap.

  5. maddie mouse says:

    heres the thing…despite us growed ups enjoying disney there is an element of kid stuff. amazingly kids collect and disney know this. bet your bottom dollar we start to collect. its the Disney way.

  6. Ceej says:

    I think it’s cool that they’re reusing decor and whatnot, but why did they have to take my favorite thing at Disney and my LEAST favorite thing and mash them together?

    *sniff* I still cry a little inside knowing that I can’t show the Adventurer’s Club to new people, anymore.

  7. TickledPinkRabbit says:

    Did I miss something? Is this new store in the spot where the Adventurer’s Clud was, or did they just take artifacts from the club and place them in here?

  8. John F says:

    It’s actually in the old Planet Hollywood location

  9. Scott says:

    Can we order a Kungaloosh in the store? You certainly can’t buy any drinks at the old clubs!

  10. Lee says:

    “Much of the decoration comes from the much admired Adventurers Club.”
    Much admired? Certainly not by TDO. If that was the case those idiots never would have closed it.
    Morons.
    Anyhow….nice store.
    Now put the decor back where it belongs and give us back our Club!
