After the opening ceremony ended, guests to Disney Springs rushed inside the store to experience its new interior. In the images below, you can see the celebration’s massive crowd, which quickly spread throughout the entire shopping location.
This new interior not only features a new free flowing walking environment, but also moving animations and projections, which can be found around the entire store.
The largest projection, which can be seen from the store’s main entrance by Starbucks, features a montage of iconic scenes from Disney animated classics with everyone’s favorite Disney Princesses. The projection can be viewed over by the Disney Princess: Dream Big, Princess collection, which is also projected on the floor in front of the store section.
Over by the “Mickey Mouse Club” collection, guests can enjoy classic Disney cartoons featuring Mickey Mouse and friends.
Another fun projection element found in the store are moving pencil tests from the Disney archives, which play on the walls. In the image below of Baloo and Mowgli from Disney’s “The Jungle Book,” when in the store, the two can be seen dancing and interacting with one another.
