The largest Disney store in the world, World of Disney, is officially reopened! The beloved alien experiment 626, aka Stitch, is back at his shenanigans spitting at and welcoming nearby guests. Shoppers can finally shop in person after a long 10-weeks of the store being closed in an abundance of caution and effort to mitigate the current health pandemic.

Guests have been looking forward to being able to purchase a piece of the magic to take home and now they finally can!

The store currently has social distancing markers on the ground to help guide guests where to stand within the store and near the registers. They are also limiting the number of people in the store, not just today on reopening day but from now on in the foreseeable future.
