    Newly refurbished LEGO Store at DTD

    The Lego Store at DTD, a store that used to scream "outlet mall", now has a new contemporary look. Check it out.

    This is a quite interesting observation from http://www.dlp.info re the new windows displays at the Lego store...

    The Disney Village at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, differs in many ways from the Disney Village at the Disneyland Resort Paris (and we do not even want to start to talk about the weather). Certainly the assortment of shops is one of the major differences. One of the major non-Disney shops for several years already is the LEGO-store which underwent a complete rehab in the past months. When it reopened only days ago it also featured several new scenes presented in shop windows. Two of them might be of special interest to Disney fans. The first scene depicts Paris, the second one Hong Kong (as the highest and most unique skyscraper in the model clearly indicates).
    While the traditional landmarks of both cities are the centerpiece of these Lego works of art, both scenes also feature references to the local Disney Resorts. In the case of the Paris scene the distinctive Sleeping Beauty Castle of the Disneyland Resort Paris is featured prominently at the left side (but no hint of the Walt Disney Studios. The not yet open HongKong Disneyland is even represented with three landmarks: Big Thunder Mountain, the Castle and Space Mountain set a bit to the back of the skyline of the city. But fans will notice that this is a rather strange choice as HongKong Disneyland does not include a Frontierland on opening day and therefore also no Big Thunder Mountain. Also the Space Mountain of HongKong Disneyland is modeled after the original white Space Mountains in Anaheim and Orlando, but the model clearly shows a canon going up all the way to the top of the mountain - which is a unique feature of Space Mountain at the Disneyland Resort Paris, which also seems to have provided the color schme of the mountain. So the question must be: did the model makers of Lego mix up HongKong Disneyland with Tokyo Disneyland regarding Big Thunder Mountain and HongKong's Space Mountain with the Paris' version?
    Whoops!
