Disneyland Resort is always looking to add new experiences and attractions for its Guests to enjoy both inside the Parks and out.
Disneyland today announced that two new shops and a unique Star Wars experience would be coming to the Downtown Disney District.
The first is a unique soccer apparel shop named Pelé Soccer. The shop will have an assortment of gear from renowned global sports brands, as well as soccer apparel like cleats and customizable jerseys.
Disney Parks Blog’s official description of the store reads:
Soccer fans, you can revel in this stadium-themed store and score from a wide assortment of soccer gear from renowned global sports brands at this specialty shop named after Pelé, the legendary Brazilian superstar and one of the greatest soccer players of all time. Choose from a selection of official club and national team jerseys from around the world, sports apparel, cleats, balls and more for the whole family. Jerseys can be customized with a name and number, which is a terrific gift idea!
Another store featuring modern and design-forward merchandise from Black-owned business has opened in Downtown Disney. It’s called Post 21 and Disney describes it as follows:
New! Post 21
Located on the east end of the district, Post 21 is new kiosk from an inspiring mother-daughter team from Los Angeles who have curated modern and design-forward merchandise from Black-owned businesses. Here you can find a unique collection of gifts for the holidays, such as Black Santa wrapping paper and mugs, home décor, children’s items and graphic tees.
A design store called Lovepop with “unique laser cut technology” will also be opening soon.
Opening soon, Lovepop will be the place to find eye-catching, 3D pop-up cards, stationery and gifts that give a “wow!” Lovepop products combine engineering and unique laser cut technology with the ancient art form of kirigami, a variation of origami that intricately cuts paper rather than folding. Lovepop has more than 400 designs to help make every occasion magical, plus Lovepop carries a collection of Disney cards and gifts!
Finally, an attraction and photo opportunity for Guests has just arrived in Downtown Disney. A replica throne featured in the Disney+ Original Series The Book of Boba Fett (2021) is now located outside the Star Wars Trading Post. The throne will only be around for a limited time.
