On Saturday, April 23rd Disneyland welcomed it’s newest shopping opportunity Castle Holiday Shoppe to Fantasyland. Located just through the gates of Sleeping Beauty Castle, this new store will offer holiday decorations to the park’s guests.
Previously this location was the home to the Castle Heraldry Shoppe which gave guests the opportunity to look up their family name and see if it had a family crest associated to it. Merchandise was available for purchase and the store would print their family crest on it for display. Other items at the store included specialty swords and collectible coat of arms.
Much speculation was made by park guests on what would replace the Castle Heraldry. Many fans guessed that the space would be used to extend the queuing area for Peter Pan’s Flight or possibly a new meet & greet opportunity.
Disneyland surprised everyone by keeping this as a retail space. Disneyland officials are reporting that this new shop is a permanent installment to the park but will offer merchandise that is updated regularly.
The Castle Holiday Shoppe will offer a variety of holiday decorations like ornaments and stockings. There will also be a Cast Member available to personalize ornaments for their guests.
Disney parks are always shifting and changing trying to provide their guests with the best experience. Walt Disney himself even said that “Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world.”
