Im not sure if someone already posted this, but I thought Id share, this is from the HUB (the Disney Cast Network) and I had been following it all the time. The Disney Store’s new Prototype store is called “Imagination Park”, it will have a brand new very interactive world for kids and adults alike, it will have fiberoptic/plastic tree cutouts that will line the stores walkway which will wind around like you would find in a park, the trees will be able to change colors and graphics to go along with the seasons and promos, etc. There will be sections for boys, girls, world of disney etc, with great theming etc and projector machines that can shoot images onto walls and such, also able to change colors, shows graphics, etc…all themed to each section of the store. The end of the stores “pathway” will bring you to a gazebo like structure which inside will have a HUGE projector TV screen which kids can interact in games, come for story time which will be performed by CMs, watch music videos, Disney news etc. Another new thing will be register “pods” which are smaller square cubes where the registers are located, and they can either be all kept in one section or each “pod” can be rolled to a section of the store so someone can be ringing up guests in each section of the store. There is a lot more to it than this but the new prototype looked great and its something the disney stores really needed. The new age demographic for Disney Stores North America is Baby-Age 12, with moderate adult things mixed in, but Disney has stated that the younger crowds are where they want to go since that age range seems to be ignored now days at malls (or so disney says…my mall has PLENTY of stores for kids ages 0-12…but hey, what do I know?), but dont worry adults, you can still buy your adult shirts and such, just not things like you use to find back in the 80s and 90s, Im not sure if they plan to have any home-items (kitchen, bedding, smaller furniture items that dont tout high school musical, etc), but like always, with Disney, anything can change. As of last I heard, all “Pink and Green” stores (which is what mine was) will be remodeled first, with the highest profit stores getting done first, followed by the stores that were previously remodeled by that cheap Children’s Place/AKA Hoop Retail LLP and the rest after that.
