A New Look for World of Disney at Disneyland Resort

Something new is in store for you at World of Disney, and I’ve got the all-access pass to take you behind the scenes before the new look is revealed on March 5.

During the past several weeks, teams from around the Disneyland Resort have been hard at work inside World of Disney, adding a “magic” touch to everything from floors and fixtures to the eye-catching mural-like panels that will line the walls of this new space. These new mural panels are set to feature some of Disney’s most beloved films and characters. Some of my favorites, you ask? “Beauty and the Beast” and “Peter Pan,” of course. Followed by the “Cars” panel, which is really cool because it features all of our favorite, classic “Cars.”

The new craftsman art-style room in the 25,000-square-foot store will be home to games, toys, plush and more, making it the ultimate children’s playground.

The walls will come down March 5, when the doors to World of Disney open. If you’re visiting the Disneyland Resort this weekend, be sure to swing by and check it out. I think you’ll like it.

  • Im so Excited I really can’t wait to see it! Im going in only two weeks,though I really hope they didn’t change the jewlery department. Its Probley my favorite due to that its decorated in Disney Villains.

  • Thanks for the the reply Michelle.

    I was at the store tonight and it looks very nice. That area of the store was in need of a makeover.

  • Would love to see Mr. Toad… he needs some recognition. Give more on the lovable little Toad.

  • How beautiful! I can’t wait to see it in person. I love that Alice is featured. We’ll see it in June!

  • How long will the deals be going on? We will be there the 7th

  • Awesome report! I was wondering what was behind those walls and curtains!

  • I love it. I’m a big alice in wonderland fan so I think it looks perfect. I can’t wait to go see it when my fiance and I go for our honeymoon in april.

  • Super Cool! I am in Retail Marketing and Store Design. I spent ALL day today in meetings discussing future projects. As cool as I thought our ideas and concepts were…..Disney has us beat!

  • The Fiance and i just got back and the place looks great

  • Excelent news! But I was not planning to go until Sunday the 6th. So I guess I’m going to miss any reopening specials.

  • We were already planning on being in the parks this weekend. Guess I’ll just have to FORCE myself to check out the newly re-designed store.

  • It reminds me of a song my father sang…
    You can find whatever you want at Alice’s restaurant…

  • How Beautiful…and they have ALICE !…the “real” Alice !..we can’t wait to see if they have new merchandise from the original Alice in Wonderland !

  • Awesome we so miss Disneyland we had Annual Passes when we lived in Southern CA.. now we live in Oklahoma and cannot afford to drive there. My son who is special needs (Autism) misses it very much.

  • Very cool! Its great that World of Disney is getting some enhancements.

    I’m also relieved to hear this, because I had noticed that walls were up inside World of Disney, and I was worried that part of the retail space had been closed indefinitely.

    • Hi Fred! I’m so glad you like it! We’re so excited for everyone to see it. It really looks great. If you plan on joining us tomorrow morning, we have a couple of great doorbusters that will be offered at store opening. I just got a hot tip that they will have a beach towel and a Disneyland frame for only $5 each.

  • Not going till Christmas…..but I can’t wait to see it!
