    Window Displays

    I forgot to ask.. is the Window Diplay thats in the Windows now new or has it been there for awhile?
    I think its new since ratatouille was there ( which explains the last window in the set)

    You're right. They haven't touched it since that movie, but other than that one window the rest has been there since the 50th. A shame Princess and the Frog didn't get a full display like their previous features. Strange too.

    The death of the Main Street Emporium Windows

    Not only have they been stagnant for 5 years, the items in the windows
    were taken from previous window displays, so they are really all older than 5 years.

    BAD SHOW! (especially the drugged out Ariel)

    I love the windows! Minus the face smudges on the glass. I mean really, who does that?

    Re: Window Displays

    I was under the impression that they brought back displays from the early years.
    It shows.
    I do like them, but they def. could be improved upon.
    After 5 yrs, it's time for something new.
    I love the window displays, but saddened that they don't keep them up like they use to.

    I take one trip to Disneyland every few years... It looks new to me, so I'm not complaining.

    Re: Window Displays

    I think the last movie to get the windows all to itself was Treasure Planet. The retrospective on the window displays was a good idea for the 50th, but it has long since run its course and they need to change it. And lookie here, they just returned to their roots with a brand new fairytale musical, so make with the frogs already!

    Re: Window Displays

    I've walked by those windows so many times, just glancing and seeing something moving in there! I read the 'book' in the first photo and realize they are saying they are using the old figures - much like they bring new movies out of the vault every 10 (?) years for the next generation to enjoy. But, 5 years without them being changed? I guess I need to pay more attention!

    And so do the window display people. Time for a change!

    Didn't the windows used to highlight one movie with different scenes in each window?

    Hidden Mickey - Historical fiction about Walt that mixes action and mystery with time travel and fantasy! Tweens to adults will enjoy these novels. And now, three gamebooks to play in Disneyland, DCA and WDW Magic Kingdom!

    Yes. With every new movie that came out, the Emporium windows would have all the the movie's major or most decorated scenes. For the 50th, they went nostalgic and put in the figures from past movies. It hasn't changed since. I was hoping that the Princess and the Frog would get the window treatment, but sadly no.

    Or at least change them for Christmas like they do in WDW!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Hopefully they will get around to it. It took quite a while to get the Castle Walk-Through reopened. Maybe they have something fabulous planned!
