I attended the grand opening of the newly renovated Disney Store in Roosevelt Field, Long Island, NY on 7/29. I was really excited, hoping that they would make it more like World of Disney.
Oh well some dreams don’t come true! All they did was move the store next to its old location, put a sitting area for watching Videos, have a build your own CARS section and that’s it. Same old merchandise! What’s worse is that they did away with the huge statues of Mickey and Friends that adorned the windows and shelves along the ceiling. The store clerk was floored when she asked me how I liked the story and I told her I didn’t and that I thought it would be like a World of Disney store and she said OH NO, that’s totally different.
Supposedly the New World of Disney that moved from Uptown NYC to Times Square is due to open in the Fall - I hope that store is better.
Has anyone else experienced a store re-opening? What was it like?
