Three Shops to Close at Downtown Disney

We are sad to announce that three popular retailers at Downtown Disney in Disneyland will be closing their doors to make room for more restaurants in the area. The three neighboring stores that are scheduled to close are Build-a-Bear Workshop, Chapel Hats, and Ridemakerz. The shops are not closing because of poor performance but just to make room for the additional dining locations.

Disneyland Resort spokesperson, Melissa Britt, stated that there is currently no plans or room to relocate the shops but if something would become available, it would be evaluated.

Here’s a little more information on each shop that is closing:

Build-a-Bear Workshop allows guests to create their own personalized bear and dress it up as they chose. The bears are even “stuffed” right inside the store and then packaged up to be taken home. There are several other locations throughout the United States and the world.

Chapel Hats has only been open for a little over a year when it replaced the Little Miss-Matched shop. There are currently 15 other locations of this hat shop including at Disney World.

Ridemakerz allows guests to create and design their own remote-controlled car or truck. There are currently two other locations in Missouri and South Carolina.

There is no word on the official closing date of the three stores. There is currently a Splitsville Luxury Lanes scheduled to open in Downtown Disney. Should be interesting to see what other restaurants might come to the area.
