The Disney Store on Fifth Avenue is the one and only World of Disney store in New York with 3 floors of Disney stuff with a New York twist.
Pretty much everything in the NY Times Square area is bigger and better and this is no exception. Tons of fun, just about anything and everything Disney related. They have everything you could want PLUS some. There were things that I had never even heard of in there.
So it's obviously smaller than the Disney Store in Florida, but Disney is Disney so it was great of course! The kids loved every aspect of it because it was like re-visiting Florida all over again - this time it was a lot closer than Florida & a bit further (& better) than the one we go to in the mall. All of the products are great & can pretty much any disney character there :)
My kids were always fans of the Disney store. Our local mall, the Garden State Plaza, had one that they absolutely loved. It closed just recently, leaving my kids devastated. This World of Disney store was even more awesome than I could even imagine possible. It has all the greatest souvenirs you could get, and in my opinion, even out does the World of Disney store in Downtown Disney mall in Florida. My kids stayed for hours, and I did not even mind it because it was great to see them having a ball!
What a nice store it is. My children spent so much time going all over the Disney products. We had only been to Disney stores in France and in San Francisco and this one was definitely a step beyond what we had seen. The decoration of the store is fantastic.
As mentioned already, this store is fantastic for kids who have yet to go to Orlando. It's the biggest you'll find in the North East.
Fun for little kids to go hunting for all of their favorite characters throughout the store. Great for finding NYC specific souvenirs or gifts for friends and family.
This is a nice store to find pretty much any Disney character! Being that we live in Florida, though, it wasn't as special as for someone who has never been to Disney World.
We liked the Disney character souvenirs that were specific for New York, something that we don't have back home.
This store is not as big at the Disney store in Orlando but it's definitely worth a visit when you're visiting NYC. Kids will love the different displays and the first floor is dedicated to NYC disney labeled things. The second floor has framed disney art that will please art lovers. Make sure you bring a big wallet.
