I’m a bit sad that I haven’t made it over to the Marketplace side of Downtown Disney lately. A new story has opened there and, from what I’ve heard, the selection is every Disney fans dream.
The Marketplace Co-Op is sort of a testing lab for Disney. It features six boutiques that will showcase new and innovative merchandise, retail concepts, shops and experiences. Those that work might find themselves part of a larger store or even in the parks somewhere.
Beautifully Disney – A beauty destination for women featuring make-up, fragrance and beauty accessories;
Cherry Tree Lane – Accessories for the sophisticated woman with a passion for scarves, shoes, bags and jewelry;
D-Tech on Demand – A place to personalize and customize your own electronic accessories;
The Trophy Room – Vintage-inspired, lifestyle sports apparel and collectibles;
Disney Centerpiece – Home products offering a splash of Disney in room furnishings, textiles and everyday ware;
Zoey and Pickles – A girls’ destination with the latest trends.
The Co-op also fits in as part of the multi-year transformation of Downtown Disney into Disney Springs. It occupies the space that formerly housed Team Mickey.
Which of the boutique shops has the merchandise that interests you the most?
