    beautiful!

    We were sent over there with the message that only we would defend Disney quality.. We learnt quickly that the Japanese culture speaks to a level of quality that is hard to comprehend. They were all unbelievably skilled and willing to do the right thing.

    Wow this looks like a great addition to the Village. Let's hope the merchandise lives up to its surroundings.

    And, this now shows up some of the older stores in the Village, they need to get working on them and bring them up to this standard. (Yeah, I know.. like that's ever going to happen!)

    ORDDU: I'm just surprised to learn they didn't have one of these open at their Down Town Disney all along. What took them so long to get around to opening one?

    I never thought I'd see the Three Caballeros and Carl Fredricksen in the same art deco mural! Very nice.

    Because I like to criticize whenever DLP messes up.

    Just out of interest, what did Disney mess up with that store, despite not using the money for something better than a store.

    I didnīt say Disney messed up when it comes to the store. They did a fine job. But nothing more. I think they should have done something more than just the standard Disney store ooonce again. Been there, seen that.

    Perhaps everyone else here thinks this new store is a triumph. But not me To me it is just another store. Call me crazy.

    I get what you mean, but I can't agree on that one. Of course the store uses themes from other stores Disney has already built, but it's a huge improvement to the other stores found at DV. I'm just glad they didn't opt for the regular Disney Store design that is coming to the shops around the world. I've only been to the WoD Store at WDW and to the old one in NY. In my opinion the Paris version is the best.

    I think it is fine. Itīs just that it has got sooo much attention since it was made official on this forum that I expected a bit more.

    I have been all around the world. I have been shopping all over this planet many many times. Perhaps that is why I am hard to please when it comes to the design of a new store.

    Whatīs most important is not the look of the store. I hope they donīt sell the same cheap tacky junk that they do in the DLP and WDS parks.

    I hope there will be some original merchandise for that store, but I have my doubts. There will be some exclusive merchandise products for the opening, but I guess that will be gone soon and replaced by the stuff that's available in all stores.
