This week, while I was visiting Walt Disney World, I was lucky enough to be there when a few new portions of the Storybook Circus area opened. I got to take a detailed look at these new areas and wanted to share them with you!
First, we are going to discuss the new shop, Big Top Souvenirs. The merchandise shop/snack location (menu here) can be found on the left side, right as you walk into the new area of Fantasyland.
Since I was actually there when it opened, I was able to take a ton of photos!
First is the outside of Big Top Souvenirs
Inside the shop, the circus theme is continued with merchandise shelves themed after circus carts. Even the carpet gets in on the action, looking like part of a canvas tent.
Here, guests will also have a chance to have their name embroidered on a hat. It can be done the traditional way, or a bit more fancy, if you choose.
Inside the shop, guests will have a unique way to pin trade
The shop also features a few items that area special for the Storybook Circus area.
In the middle of the shop is a snack location where guests can pick up bakery items, along with cotton candy, caramel corn, and Goofy’s Glaciers. (Slushy like drinks.) Also featured are a few new specialty cupcakes.
The new store looks absolutely amazing! It will be a great area to go after meeting The Great Goofini in the new Pete’s Silly Sideshow meet and greet.
