The world’s largest Disney character store is getting a makeover. World of Disney, a 50,000 square foot complex located in Disney Springs, will be moving portions of their inventory to a location in the Town Center section while it undergoes renovations—theme sections such as Pirates of the Caribbean and Star Wars will be relocated, leaving the general Disney brands intact. With the recent expansion of Disney Springs, the new store fronts and restaurants reflect a more opulent atmosphere than that of the twenty-something World of Disney. We look forward to seeing its completion by the holidays.
World of Disney opened its doors in October of 1996 in what was then called the, Disney Village. The first Disney retail store was opened almost ten years earlier in the Glendale Galleria located in Glendale, California. Disney also offers their Disney themed merchandise online at ShopDisney.com.
