PHOTOS, VIDEO: Tour The First Walt Disney World Store in Orlando, Including Vacation Club Discovery Station
The first Walt Disney World Store has opened under the Hollywood Plaza parking garage in Orlando, Florida.
The store is beneath the new art installation currently advertising the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World.
Inside, the store’s ceiling is lined with images of Walt Disney World icons in EARidescent colors for “The Most Magical Celebration on Earth.”
50th anniversary merchandise is on display at the front.
There are two circles of lights, with a larger lighting fixture made of several orbs at the center.
The orbs resemble exploding fireworks.
The walls are white, with built-in shelves. The shelving units are light brown wood and each display has a different word above it. Specific franchises, like Disney Princess, Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars are labeled.
“Home,” “sip,” “yum,” “cozy,” and “cute” are above other shelves.
Mickey’s silhouette, “Walt Disney World,” and “The Most Magical Place on Earth” are in silver on the wall behind the register. Most of this wall is royal blue, but a section is brown set into a white unit.
The counters are brown wood with white tops.
One corner is the ticket center, with another royal blue wall displaying screens featuring various images from Walt Disney World.

These curved counters are also brown and white.
The ticket center also has a small seating area, with an orange bench and stools around white tables.
The Walt Disney World Store also houses the first-ever interactive Disney Vacation Club Virtual Discovery Station.
Guests can step inside a small room, with projections displaying different Disney Vacation Club destinations on the walls.
A tablet sits on a podium, and guests can use it to choose different locations. The options are Disney’s Polynesian Village Resor, Grand Floridian Resort, Riviera Resort, and Aulani.
After choosing a resort, you can pick a room to tour.
This Walt Disney quote is above the door when exiting the stoor: “Laughter is timeless, imagination has no age, dreams are forever.”
