Today on our way out of the Magic Kingdom through the Transportation and Ticket Center, we noticed that Mickey’s Gift Station is currently closed.
The gift shop, which usually functions as a last stop for souvenirs, has black plastic lining its windows and doors. The plastic blocks every single window and does not allow anyone to look inside.
There are no signs posted stating the reason for closure, or when or if the store will reopen.
Other than the black plastic blocking the windows, everything else in the area looks normal.
As no information is currently available on the reason for the closure, for now it can be assumed that this is a refurbishment to bring it up to date along with the other arrival enhancements at various Disney World parks. The Transportation and Ticket Station recently debuted a new security screening area that was notably void of any color or theming, so it could be that the store is being transformed to match the plain beige interiors of most other newly refurbished stores on property.
