SNEAK PEEK: Vault Collection-Inspired Shopping Experiences Coming Soon to Disney Springs and Magic Kingdom Park for Walt Disney World Resort 50th Anniversary Celebration
We are only 10 days away from kicking off “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” and the 50th Anniversary of Walt Disney World!
As we get ready to set the stage for this 18-month long celebration, we are excited to share more of what’s to come that will enhance the 50th shopping experience within select merchandise locations. Recently we gave a peek behind the magic of Vault Collection celebrating retro-themed treasures that are right out of The Walt Disney Archives. Now, the Marketplace Co-Op at Disney Springs will receive a special overlay inspired by the Vault Collection that will take Guests back to 1971 the moment they walk through the doors.
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. In addition to the photo moments, the team has created engaging spaces where Guests can learn more about Walt Disney World Resort’s history such as The Preview Center, original attractions, and even the opening year 1971 resorts around Bay Lake.
Over at Magic Kingdom Park, the Main Street Cinema will receive a retro-inspired overlay themed to the Vault Collection 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 Guests to experience when while they’re shopping for all their must-haves.
Guests will encounter these one-of-a-kind retail displays that elevate the 50th anniversary shopping experience at these select locations across Walt Disney World Resort this fall.
