The shop, located between Star Wars Launch Bay and Voyage of the Little Mermaid, has its windows blacked out, suggesting that it may not reopen anytime soon.

The shop is home to an assortment of Disney Junior merchandise, fittingly across from Disney Junior Play & Dance!

It’s also known for having a filmstrip featuring scenes from Disney Animated films hanging by the ceiling, a throwback from when it was next to the former attraction The Magic of Disney Animation.

They really need to just call it a day on that whole area- bulldoze Mermaid theater, One Man’s Dream, Disney junior, Star Wars Launch Bay, and former animation building behind SWLB. Think of the Marvel/Indiana Jones/20th Century Studios projects that could go there instead of the Retroland space they have there now. Wakanda, Indiana Jones Adventure, Zootopia, the Shanghai Pirates ride, the new Tokyo Beauty and the Beast E-Ticket, etc. Hollywood Studios could be great, they just need to pull the trigger on all the stuff WD Imagineering has already made or has in the works anyway!
