The Walt Disney Store on International Drive had its grand opening on May 31, 2022, with Disney cast members gathered for the big ribbon cutting.
Outside, a massive new ribbon-style art banner placed across the Hollywood Plaza garage features glittering Disney Fab 50 Character Collection digital golden sculpts, which come to life in honor of Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary, dubbed “The World’s Most Magical Celebration.”
The Walt Disney Store sells Disney merchandise and theme park tickets, and is conveniently located in the heart of tourist-oriented I-Drive.
In a first for Disney, the shop also features an interactive Disney Vacation Club Virtual Discovery Station, where visitors can explore Disney theme parks, resorts, and Disney Cruise Line destinations across the world via floor-to-ceiling screens.
The Walt Disney Store will be open from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. daily, and is intended to be a one-stop shop for souvenirs and tickets, and for learning more about the Disney Vacation Club.
