Walt Disney World Closing Fun Finds to Open Star Wars Store and Other Store Changes

Disney has announced a shopping location closure at Disney Springs in Walt Disney World.  Fun Finds, a store once notorious for discount and discontinued merchandise as well as a random mix of other fun souvenirs, is now closed permanently.  During the closure, the store will be completely re-themed and will re-open as a Star Wars themed store.  We haven’t heard if there will be any new experiences or limited merchandises associated with the new store, but we sure hope there will be.  We don’t know what the name of the location will be changed to or when the location will re-open.


Disney has started adding unique and customized shopping experiences at various shopping locations around Walt Disney World, so we really hope that they will do something at this new Star Wars location.  We do know that the Star Wars section of Once Upon a Toy is closing on July 31st in order to complete refurbishments to create a new Star Wars experience there.  We would assume this experience is a shopping-related experience.  We don’t know yet when the section of Once Upon a Toy will be back open to the public.

There is also another store in the area called Leather Kiosk.  This store has now closed permanently in addition to all of the other changes.  We don’t know if yet if there will be another kiosk in its place.

What do you all think of these shopping changes?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
