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.

The hours make no sense! It opens at 11, long after tourists head to WDW. Then, the store closes at 7- long before guests return to their Intl. Drive hotel! To allow tourists to visit, the store should only be open from 7PM to 9AM. That is, ALL NIGHT LONG!!!

I think it’s meant for people NOT wanting to go to WDW, but still wanting to buy gifts and collectibles.
