The recession has not been kind to many of the tenants of Disneyland’s Downtown Disney shopping mall. The Anne Geddes show just closed, and Basin closed in January. Today two new retail stores were announced to be opening this spring – Sanuk, a footwear shop… Read More »Disneyland’s Downtown Disney to open two new stores
For the last few weeks, I’ve been collecting photos of interesting merchandise I’ve seen while out walking in Walt Disney World resort. Now it’s time to share:
For those who may recall, when D-Street opened in Downtown Disney’s westside, we were promised Mickey Vinylmation Ice Cube Trays. Well they’ll be available starting Dec 3rd.
A wide selection of TRON themed clothing is available. Mostly from the Hurley brand.
Disney recently restocked with a new collection of Bloc28 T-shirts. These are designed by street artists. I really like this one, of course, it was the only one they were out of stock on.

There is more to Walt Disney World merchandise than just t-shirts. I’ve spotted a bunch of new merchandise recently and, while there are a few real bright points, there are also unfortunately a couple misses.
First are there are a bunch of great new Mickey Mouse Ears in the parks. I really like these R2-D2 ones.
One more set of Mickey Ears and two possibly disturbing finds below the jump:
As a Disney aficionado and frequent visitor to the parks, I jumped at the chance to experience the grand opening of the freshly redesigned Disney Store at my local mall.
Over 80 years ago, Roosevelt Field was the site of an airfield where Charles Lindbergh took off in the Spirit of St. Louis for his historic transatlantic flight to Paris. Today, the area is home to the eighth largest shopping mall in the country and the first Disney Store on the East Coast to undergo this magical makeover.
Disney Store North America General Manager Molly Adams
Our day started with a tour of the store led by Molly Adams, Vice President and General Manager of Disney Store North America. She showed us around the 4,500 square foot facility and reminded us that it’s “not just another place to buy Disney products; it’s really about being immersed in the Disney experience and feeling the magic.” This became apparent as she led us down a trail of pixie dust, one of the signature icons of the new stores.
