    Sad No More Ornaments in NOS

    Since Pieces of Eight is down, as many of us know, the Pirates merchandise was moved over to La Boutique de Noel...apparently permanently (I guess Disney has planned a lot of new merchandise for PotC). The ornaments have been moved to Fantasyland in a shop called Geppetto's Holiday Workshop.

    Now, I love Pirates and all (I mean, look at my avatar!), and I'm very excited about the upcoming events and updates to th attraction, as well as the new movie. But moving the ornament store? I don't know, it kind of makes me sad...New Orleans Square is very charming, and that store was part of the charm IMO (though the prices weren't!). In any case, I have mixed feelings about this. I just hope that this new Pirates merchandise is really good for what they've had to do.

    Kind of reminds me of that old perfume shop NOS had (I only saw it in an old recording for The Wonderful World of Disney or something)-does anybody know where this shop was and what replaced it?

    Anyhow, your thoughts?

    New Orleans Square is my favorite land in any Disney park. I hate to hear they are taking stuff away. And the fact that it is the Christmas ornaments bums me out...because...I collect Christmas ornaments!

    The christmas shop moved back to Fantasyland, not in the castle anymore, but still back in Fantasyland. I liked it better in NOS but atleast it is still around!

    In the early 1980's the Christmas shop was one of the shops in the castle walkway in Fantasyland. That is when I started my collection that continues to grow each trip.

    Actually, it's not...it's rather permanent.

    ^ I'm pretty sure it's not.

    The old L'Ornement Magique location has a lot of the displaced ornaments from Botique de Noel. There used to be two christmas ornament shops in New Orleans Square. Once Pieces of Eight reopens all the pirate themed merchandise will be moved back and Botique de Noel will reopen.

    At any rate, there are still ornaments in NOS and by all indications there will continue to be ornaments in NOS.

    My source is MousePlanet...they're saying that Pieces of Eight and La Boutique de Noel (to be re-named) will be filled with Pirates merchandise.

    And you're right, I forgot about that smaller shop.

    I believe it was Le Petite Parfumierie. There is a copy in Tokyo, viewed here.

    The smaller shop is solely Radko ornaments and doesn't belong to the company, that's why it's still there. And I think the estate jewelry shop is where the perfume shop used to be.

    I was just there last Friday, and I think there's a smaller shop next door that only opens on weekends that sells ornaments in NOS. Or did I imagine this?

    Re: No More Ornaments in NOS

    I'll have to go check out the new shop in Fantasyland. It's nice that they'll be filling the space in Fantasyland, though, since the building had been empty for some time.
    Woof!

    Oh good point, I just read their update. Regardless, they don't seem to sure. I'm willing to bet that it will reopen as the ornament store. Geppetto's seems to be the temporary filler shop lately. When the castle was under refurbishment the shop inside the castle was move to the Geppetto shop. Who knows, it may stay in Fantasyland but I have a hunch it won't. Also, MousePlanet reported...

    One uncomfirmed source has suggested that management may be trying to boost Pirates of the Caribbean merchandise over Nightmare Before Christmas merchandise because of the royalty payments required for Nightmare sales.
    I doubt this is a reason. I mean, Disney is still making a profit, and considering they practically dedicated the entire shop to NBC merchandise they are proably quite comfortable with the deal they made to licensing. Just a hunch.

    The perfume shop was located across from the glass shop. It is now the Estate jewelry shop. I noticed on the building it acknowledges the old One of Kind Shop where Le Bat is now.

    The current Pirates was a kitchen shop before the Christmas ornaments. And the Pin shop was the hat shop! My have things changed in the square in the last 13 years......

    Re: No More Ornaments in NOS

    My sources say the shop "Treasures" is only temp, and that Pieces of Eight is expanding into the old courtyard between it and LE Bat. The store will be about double in size, and really needs to be to hold everything. I'm sure you noticed that pirates is in almost every store, and every land, and in DCA.
    I really hate this, but we have no say as venders, as to where in the park they put our stuff.
