BREAKING: First ‘Walt Disney World Store’ and The Disney Vacation Club Virtual Discovery Station Opening May 31st in Orlando
A new Walt Disney World Store will be opening on I-Drive in Orlando, Florida on May 31, alongside the new art installation.
The ribbon-like art installation on the Hollywood Plaza parking garage will animate images of the golden Fab 50 statues when it is initially turned on. It will eventually feature other characters and celebrations, too.
“We took a lot of knowledge from setting up the 50th art installations in our parks and the Orlando International Airport and wanted to spread a little of that magic out into the world,” Will Gay, design director with Disney’s Yellow Shoes Creative Group, said. “It all started with a little idea and a question – could we do this? Could we turn this into a dynamic art display bigger than anything we’ve ever done before?”
In the building will be the Walt Disney World Store combining merchandise, ticket sales, and the first-ever interactive Disney Vacation Club Virtual Discovery Station.
The Disney Vacation Club Virtual Discovery Station will have floor-to-ceiling screens that can transport guests to theme parks, resorts, and cruise destinations from around the world via first-person virtual tours, photo galleries, and videos.
