At Walt Disney World Resort, some stores are more popular than others. One such shop is Disney Outfitters at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park. This merchandise stop is filled with a variety of items, primarily apparel and accessories, for the whole family.
In a strange twist of events, however, Disney has seemingly removed the webpage for the popular store. As you can see below, “Disney Outfitters” no longer has a dedicated page that pops up on the official Walt Disney World Resort website. The only hit for the search term at this time is “Black Spire Outfitters”, which can be found at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios Park.
Adding to the strangeness of the situation is that Disney filed a construction permit for Disney Outfitters recently, but there has been no official announcement about what major changes — if any — are occurring at the site.
The permit itself does not offer many details about the project, listing the purpose as providing “labor, material and/or electrical for construction.” The contractor is Disney’s own Buena Vista Construction Company.
It is important to note that Disney could simply be doing website work and the Disney Outfitters page will reappear in due time — a similar situation occurred with the page for the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Magic Kingdom Park.
Again, at this time, no official information has been released about construction at the Disney Outfitters store.
D23 describes the shopping establishment as:
Disney Outfitters Shop on Discovery Island at Disney’s Animal Kingdom; opened April 22, 1998. It changed its name to Wonders of the Wild from 1999 to 2001, then reverted to Disney Outfitters.
