A Blue Sky Cellar would be fantastic, but I can't see DLRP devoting so much prime retail space to it. They've never been really big on promoting their forthcoming attractions (which I still struggle to understand).
There were rumours of it opening in 2005 back for the Happiest Celebration on Earth. Eight years later is better than never, the globe-entrance looks stunning!

This is ok. My biggest concern is this. In California and to a lesser extent, there are things worth buying. However, there are few things at DLP these days I want to buy (no longer any good watches, adult clothes, fine dishes from the restaurant). will this store actually have anything worth buying, or will it be the same rubbish that is sold throughout the resort?
If they get a new batch of exclusive merchandise, as stated above - this could be great.
Sell more artwork and collectables etc that aren't widely available - such as attraction poster prints - and I would be happy!
Good point Dave. Knowing Paris it'll be the same old tat found in every store in the resort. But then there's that one part of me that wonders if they would be so stupid. I mean, its a brand new, flagship store, it'll need to impress.
