New World of Disney store opens at Disneyland Paris
Written by Robert Niles
PARIS - A new World of Disney store just opened this past week at the Disneyland Paris Resort, and it's clearly the place to shop in the resort's Disney Village.Tweet
Unlike the other stores in Paris' Disney Village - which comprise building materials and maintenance far below Disney's typical theme park standards - this World of Disney would fit right in at Disney's resorts in Anaheim, Orlando, or Tokyo.
There's even a welcomed place for family and friends to sit and rest while others shop.
But it's the murals surrounding the central rotunda that caught my eye. Appropriate for a store named "World of Disney," these 10 scenes depict famous Disney characters from settings around the world. We start in France, home of Ratatouille's Remy, the Hunchback of Notre Dame, and the Aristocats, who helped my daughter fall in love with France, when she watched the movie daily as a toddler.
