    Seeing as Disney and Apple are good buddies (Steve Jobs bought PIXAR originally) I could definitely see that happening.

    I'm honestly surprised there isn't an Apple Store in Downtown Disney.
    Please... put Guardians of the Galaxy in Tomorrowland.

    No Apple store but you can buy Apple products from the Best buy kiosk right next to the World of Disney store.

    It should be a one of a kind Apple store featuring exclusive Disney themed items you wouldn't find in your normal Apple store featuring interactive Disney experiences and whatnot. That's the only way I can see Apple in DTD actually being worth it.

    It would be cool but i just don't see apple doing well in dtd to be honest, first they would have to add a few more restaurants and trendy clothing stores. IMHO

    It's a music Celebration
    Come on, come on, come on
    Strike up the band,
    Feel the beat, what a great sensation
    Come on, come on, come on
    Move and clap your hands,
    Get into the Spirit
    Let everyone hear it,
    So come on, come on

    Disclaimer: In My Opinion....

    The resort is a TERRIBLE place to put an Apple store because:

    - You've got lots and lots of tourists that will have the convenience of replacing any broken Apple-phanelia but that alone is a big cost to the company. The store needs to profit.

    - Apple merchandise is expensive! $400 bucks spent buying an ipad mini is money less spent on Disney merch and services. One could argue that the locals will keep the cash flowing there but ask most OC people where their favorite Apple store is and they'll usually mention Mission V.

    - Even if Iger is on the board that's not to say that the lawyers aren't going to have their political fights over everything from waiving rent fees to putting a commission percentage on a per unit basis. In fact I bet that behind closed doors this has already happened in the past.

    - DTD has been a black hole for quite a few 3rd party merchants in the past. Disney owned stores have also had their turnover woes too. It's easy to imagine that DTD is an easy money grab for these businesses but in reality if you don't keep up with the fast pace of Disney's trends (Ridemakers & Build-a-Bear do this like pros) you'll be out of business in no time. What could Apple really do to keep itself fresh year in and year out beside change their window displays? You gotta make limited edition Wreck It Ralph ipad covers is what you need to do man!

    DLR is already expensive, why bring in more overpriced products?

    As much as I like Apple, I don't want to see Downtown Disney become the mall I can go to anywhere else in SoCal. I'd like it to stay true to its original goal of serving as a venue for unique and sometimes premium shops and restaurants. But that's sort of where it's headed with the closing of several businesses. As it is, they already have Sephora, LEGO Store, and the incoming Earl of Sandwich (the latter is not common in the area, but when I lived in Texas, we had them there). And of course, there's the movie theater. Why would I want to go to Disney to watch a movie or buy makeup? It's true that people like what they're familiar with, but if Downtown Disney can strive to continue providing unique offerings that have good value, even if they're a bit more expensive, then I don't think they can really lose.

    I don't think apple would want to pay the rent. Especially when they can put a store elsewhere and keep more of their profit.
