PHOTOS: The Dress Shop Moves Back Into Marketplace Co-Op at Disney Springs

Just like the dinosaurs, the National Geographic store at Disney Springs is now extinct. We visited Disney Springs and found the former outdoor clothing, accessories, and science toy shop is completely gone, and The Dress Shop has moved back into the space.

The NatGeo shop opened in Marketplace Co-Op this past October, and not only did the shop carry a wide assortment of merchandise, but various collections that could also be found throughout the Walt Disney World resort.

The Dress Shop, which has moved around Marketplace Co-Op a few times, carries the titular dresses, as well as jewelry, men’s apparel, fragrances, and Dooney & Bourke bags.

Although it is The Dress Shop, only plain Marketplace Co-Op signs hang above the entrances for now.

For those who are fans of Disneyland’s Matterhorn Bobsleds, this Matterhorn-inspired dress is a contemporary twist on the traditional dirndl worn by women and girls in the German-speaking Alps.

In addition to the Matterhorn-inspired dress, a fun knit, green Matterhorn-inspired shirt is available for men. Next to that, is a pear-colored ear headband with a coordinating plaid bow.

Here is a delicate soft pink dress, inspired by the iconic Disney Park carousels. The pink underskirt is adorned with a white circular design, created from the same sheer material, showcasing a complete carousel with horses and flags.

  1. NatGeo probably bombed in sales so they needed to be replaced quickly. Case in point: Many items were 40% off around Christmas time. The Lion King store in Animal Kingdom yesterday had NatGeo items all 50% off. I imagine that they will find their way to the Disney outlet locations very soon.
