Walt Disney World’s World of Disney Made Changes to Stitch Statue

Stitch has been a staple at one of the World of Disney entrances for a long time.  World of Disney is one of the largest Disney stores in all of Walt Disney World where guests are able to shop for a variety of different items including apparel, home goods, jewelry, toys and more. The store is made of several different large rooms and it is easy to get lost in there if you aren’t careful.  Guests were concerned when Stitch wasn’t sitting on top of one of the main entrances to the location for a period of time.  Stitch was notorious for “spitting” (shooting water) on guests in front of the entrance, which was usually a welcome act on a hot Florida day.    Stitch as returned to his spot, but the water shooting feature has been turned off.  We aren’t sure if it is turned off permanently or if the change will only be temporary.

The World of Disney merchandise location has been undergoing a large amount of construction.  There have been areas of the store completely shut down so that interior work can be completed. Other stores around Disney Springs are carrying World of Disney merchandise so that guests can still shop for all of the great items until the construction is complete.  It is possible that the water feature will be restored once the construction at the location is complete, we just don’t know for sure yet.

How many of you have been “spit on” by Stitch while in Disney Springs?

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!
