    Re: Save the Magic Shop

    First off I don't think it's going anywhere.

    But I'm really surprised Disney has not already taken to producing it's own line of products for it's various Magic Shops. Or has it? They were happy to stamp out most of the individuality of the Main St. shops years ago in exchange for a mall featuring nothing but character products. So i'm left to wonder, where is Mickey's First Magic Kit and Goofy's Dissapearing Ink?

    Anybody else wish the flowermart, candle shop, or tobacco shop were still alive and well?

    Re: Save the Magic Shop

    I am not sure which would be a worse fate... the loss of the Magic Shop, or the continued decision to sell cheap generic tricks instead of something unique... It is honestly little more then a shell of it's former self.

    Yep. As an ex-smoker, I understand that the tobacco shop has to be part of Yesterland, but I sure miss how Main Street was in the time before "Madman Merch" Pre$$ler took over.

    For a moment I thought you wrote "Mad Man Muntz"... not that anyone else would get the reference.

    They had character stuff like Mickey's First magic kit? That sounds cool!

    Nice. It was weird going in that storefront and the inside being unrelated. Not that that doesn't still happen for other Main Street shops.

    Re: Save the Magic Shop

    At first I was concerned about the news when I found out last week. Yesterday I realized that a lot of the Stores on Main Street used to be run by outside companies and it was a success back then. Then I had to ask myself the question, "Would Main Street be better today with more outside companies taking over other shops and selling their uniques merchandise?" To me this would be a win/win for both the guests and Company. So I am excited about this for the Magic Shop.

    Magic Restored on Main Street?

    Around Disney Blog reports that Houdini's Magic Shop has reached a deal to take over the Main Street Magic Shop (without changing the name!!)

    Hadn't seen this posted on here. Thoughts?

    It was reported in the Disneyland Project Tracker thread, and you can check it out on the first page.
