    Disney at Home Shop Closing in Downtown Disney

    Beginning in the Spring of 2005, a new, expanded Goofy’s Candy Company will be unveiled, featuring an interactive show kitchen filled with unique and tasty confections.

    To make room for this new offering, the Disney at Home location at Downtown Disney Marketplace will begin a period of refurbishment effective January 3, 2005, making the store's last day of operation, January 2.

    The current Goofy’s Candy Company will continue to operate until approximately a week prior to the opening of the new location. The former location will then undergo a brief refurbishment in preparation for another retail concept.

    I did too, but to be honest, was always somewhat diappointed in their selection. maybe a little "rehab" is just what they need!

    Lately their selection has been very disappointing. But once upon a time, I remember the store offering more variety.

    Oh no!!! I have been saving for a whole year to buy stuff in there! I'm so sad!!! That's the only place I know of to get "real" home stuff other than the Disney Direct!

    Noooo! That's my favorite store in all of Disney!

    Pooh. The worst part is, I'm DOWN HERE right now, but I didn't know they were closing it, and unless they extended the days, I *missed* going in there.

    Bah!
    Hathaway Browne and Samantha Sterling are my heroes!

    All I want is a Kingdom Hearts ride... is that so much to ask?

    Come on Tracy...you know you really want a store dedicated to more Pooh and more Princess stuff!! Admit it!

    Sigh...I was collecting stuff for a Mickey kitchen and now the glasses I was needing aren't available anymore.

    At Home has dropped much of its selection in the past few months. Guess I should have seen this happening. I really enjoyed that store. Glad I bought the stuff I needed before it went out.

    I seem to be noticing a trend as of late with Disney: All of the things that I once liked are either being discontinued, replaced with more "kid friiendly" generic junk, or being replaced by lower quality versions of the originals.

    Just an FYI... a lot of the "home store" products are now in the World of Disney. AP's get a discount in there so it may be better than having it's own store. :$$:
