My lucky rear end got the chance to visit the Disney Store in Chicago this past August. As many of you know, I have lived near Disney World for the last 9 years. I have a unique pespective, being a FL local as long as I have now, on what you can find of the Disney brand in the Parks VS the Disney Stores. They both have a different look, and both different merch, and I have been blessed to have worked at a Disney store when they were in their hay day (still have my name tag!). But it is always fascinating to me the cool things they sell at the Disney Store vs the Parks. Sometimes it’s Christmas ornaments, kitchen stuff, Jerseys, and even Loungeflys. It goes along the same line as Box Lunch and Hot Topic- some of THE coolest Disney merch can be found at both, so its always worth a look to see what’s on the menu.
The Chicago Disney Store is located on 717 N. Michigan Avenue, on the right side if you’re walking away from the Riverwalk area. Now, a word of caution. I was there in August and they some rioting in that area so they boarded up the front of the Store, and then I was just there this past weekend in November and the entire Street was boarded up now. So, they ARE open, but if you are concerned, call ahead. Enjoy the pics from the Store, it’s worth checking out!
Thanks for supporting me!!
Going from “What If? to “Why Not” is my life motto and I work hard at living that every day. I share everything from moving to Florida to live near Disney World to road trips across the States. I love the cool, quirky, and crazy stuff that I can find on my Adventures, and every dollar you donate helps support my efforts and hard work. Thank you to ALL who support me!
