Get ready to be transported back to the 1970s with a nostalgic museum-like display that invites shoppers to learn about original Walt Disney World Resort attractions and resorts. Guests will have a unique opportunity to experience and engage in photo opportunities with vintage props including carousel horses from the Prince Charming Regal Carrousel, replicas of the Orange Bird and the Tiki sculptures, as well as many more props and displays that tell stories from years past. (I’m already planning my Instagram photos!) I also love that in addition to the photo moments, the team has created engaging spaces where you can learn more about Walt Disney World Resort history, things like The Preview Center, original attractions, and even the opening year 1971 resorts.
Over at Magic Kingdom Park, you’ve probably already seen some of the EARidescent makeover at The Emporium, and soon the Main Street Cinema will receive a retro-inspired overlay themed to the Vault Collection. It will be filled with vintage photos, colors, and details including photo-worthy backdrops and props inspired by beloved attractions from Walt Disney World Resort history. The entire Merchandise Presentation Team has done such an incredible job taking elements from all of the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Merchandise collections and creating innovative and imaginative spaces for you to experience while you’re shopping for all your must-haves.
Guests will encounter these one-of-a-kind retail displays that elevate the 50th anniversary shopping experience at select locations across Walt Disney World Resort this fall. I can’t wait to see these spaces come to life in person and better yet start my shopping!
