One of my favorite places to shop at Downtown Disney District at Disneyland Resort in California is the WonderGround Gallery. Opened in June 2012, the distinctive and eclectic contemporary art location showcases unique art collections by some incredibly talented artists. I have great news for fans who love this location like I do. A small assortment of WonderGround Gallery items was recently added to the Marketplace Co-Op in Downtown Disney Marketplace.
Located just inside the main entrance of the shop, this new addition contains a handful of prints, mugs, magnets, postcards and more from various artists originally featured in the California location.
You may recall that the Marketplace Co-Op was designed to be a testing space for new retail products, store concepts and guest experiences. This small addition is a great example of the flexible space inside the location.
During my recent visit, I saw a new “Welcome” sign inside the shop (just look at those letters!). I love the “The Village Marketplace Co-Operative” label found on the side of the orange crates. Benches were also added to the center area between the boutiques.
If you are unable to visit the Marketplace Co-Op in Florida or the WonderGround Gallery in California, you can find select items from the location on our Disney Parks online store.
Wonderland Gallery is one of my favorite places in DL – we are “SO” excited to have their items available to us in WDW!!! Great to see them join the new CO-OP in DTD. Now to go Shop Shop Shop 🙂

OMyFairyGodMother! This excits me very much!!! Can’t wait to get there! Thanx Steven!
I think that this is a great addition to the Co-Op. It truly is a genius of a merchandise location. Any word on the Dole Whip ceramic trinket boxes? They sold out extremely quickly online and have not been back since. Are they still around in the store?
@Nicole – I was at the Marketplace Co-Op on Wednesday night and I saw several of the trinket boxes. I’m unsure of an ETA as to when they may return to the Disney Parks online store. Here is the item number if you would like to contact our Merchandise Guest Services team – 400008215664.
You can contact our Merchandise Guest Services team by telephone at 877-560-6477 or by email at Merchandise.Guest.Services@DisneyParks.com.
More though, NEED MORE! A small selection isn’t enough! MORE!
@Stephanie – There are some additional items from WonderGround Gallery also found at D-Street in Downtown Disney West Side in Florida.
FANTASTIC!!! We needed more stuff like this! Can’t wait to visit in Sept.!
