    Brand New store in the Castle

    So the title is pretty self explanatory, but we were in the park last night enjoying bat days and were walking towards the castle when I noticed that some of the construction walls were down and people were in the castle! I started freaking out thinking that they had opened the walk through way early. But when we got there it was just a store.... I thought they closed the store in the castle in order to accomadate those thay couldnt walk through the experience with a alternate viewing room. Does anyone know anything about the store???

    Are you sure it isn't just construction for the walk through?

    Can you describe more precisely where this was? Inside the covered castle walkway from the Hub? In the courtyard of the castle? West side, east side?

    I can do that! Its inside the castle itself on the left side of the walkway directly after you cross the drawbridge. The main entrance to the store is right next to what I think is going to be the entrance to the revamped walk through and is across the way (I think cause I cant confirm it in any of my old photos) from where the store in the castle used to be... It is a fairly small store and has plenty of tinkerbell and princess merchandise..

    I am a hundred percent sure, I walked in and they have a cash register and everything!

    That store on the west side has always been there. A tinkbell store. I think they renamed it just recently.

    The one for the handicap access for the walk-through is on the east-side. previously a three fairies crystal shop. last time i checked, the three fairies sign was still up there.

    Nothing really new to report I think. construction walls i would think should have still been up to the walk-through's entrance and exit.

    filmfreak beat me too it. That entrance to the store on the west side is kind of hidden by the drawbridge chains, but it's been there since, oh, as long as I can remember.

    Re: Brand New store in the Castle

    Yeah, that's what I thought, didn't it reopen last week along with Pixie Hallow? It's a little strange, they open a new Tink place there and still have the ODV stuff just past the M&G. I think they should have left that shop alone or gave it a SB theme and built a more permanent place to sell Tink stuff nearer to PH.

    Re: Brand New store in the Castle

    That has been a Tinkerbell store for a while. They had some 50th merchandise, during DL's 50th.

    It's the store on the right side that closed, most recently it was the Three Fairies Shop. They sold those acrylic cubes with various Disney designs lasar etched in them, and also could take 2d and 3d pictures of peoples faces and embed the silottes in the cubes. Years ago, it use to be the heraldry shop.

    Re: Brand New store in the Castle

    I guess I haven't actually been inside for years. I didn't know it was previously Tink stuff. I guess it makes a little more sense then. I guess I understand why they wouldn't spend the money to build a new Tink store if they already had one so nearby.

    Yeah, it is pretty small, but it is a really nice room. It's ornate and the wood work is really good. It's got a cozy feeling to it.

    Are you talking about the crystal shop?
    because from I saw the construction walls were around what use to be the entrance or exit to the castle...
    yet the main door to crystal shop that was once there were closed, and not surrounded by walls?
