Today, October 27th, marks the big “Grand Opening” of the remodeled World of Disney Store at Disney Springs. After many, many months of work being done in phases, the finished product opened to guests this morning.

The store is light on details, but there are a few neat effects and little details. Overall it’s an easier shopping experience and you’ll enjoy it if you aren’t looking to have much theme or magic involved in your Disney Springs trip.

Here’s a video tour of the completed store to give you a better idea:

So, what do you think of the new World of Disney at Disney Springs?

Too much decor to see in a store takes attention away from the purpose which is buy things.

I liked the old store better. It was definitely too cluttered, which could’ve been an easy fix. This is just too plain compared to the old version. Nothing fun about this. I agree with you Tom, you go to Disney to be immersed.

Like the recently announced river country hotel, the cancelled disneyland hotel, riviera, removal of theming at coronado springs, and most of disney springs, this lacks theming and detail. For some reason Disney thinks we want to visit office parks.

No character, no charm, no magic just another boring store.

It wasn’t completely open yet when i was there two weeks ago.
but I liked what I saw. I do miss the Disney elements that used to be there but the old store was way to cluttered and when it was busy it was impossible to walk through.
The new design is more open and was much easier to navigate when busy. Even with a double stroller.

I was there shortly before the last part opened and I was underwhelmed. Yes it was less cluttered but it also felt like a Kohl’s with Disney merchandise. I wish they would have built a new building perhaps where the NBA mistake, errr, experience is going on order to get more or improved space. Then put the NBA at this location…. Or not at all in lieu of a new adventures club…I can dream. Anyway. It’s nicer than it was but not better in my opinion
