A new Walt Disney World Store will be opening along the popular I-4/International Drive corridor in Orlando.
The building will feature a larger-than-life outdoor art display as it showcases Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and other Fab 50 golden sculpts in an impressive ribbon-like Disney art display that enwraps the outside of the Hollywood Plaza garage.
“We took a lot of knowledge from setting up the 50th art installations in our parks and the Orlando International Airport and wanted to spread a little of that magic out into the world,” Will Gay, design director with Disney’s Yellow Shoes Creative Group, said. “It all started with a little idea and a question – could we do this? Could we turn this into a dynamic art display bigger than anything we’ve ever done before?”
Opening May 31, the Walt Disney World Store will have merchandise, ticket sales and the first-ever interactive Disney Vacation Club Virtual Discovery Station. The Disney Vacation Club Virtual Discovery Station will have floor-to-ceiling screens that can transport guests to theme parks, resorts, and cruise destinations from around the world via first-person virtual tours, photo galleries, and videos.
This one-stop will give visitors to Central Florida a convenient way to purchase commemorative souvenirs, park tickets and explore Disney Vacation Club membership.
