Whether visiting Walt Disney World Resort or Disneyland Resort, it cannot be denied that shopping is a big part of the magic.
Each Disney store, whether it be a gift shop attraction exit, a Disney Character Warehouse, or a World of Disney store in Disney Springs or the Downtown Disney District, is just full of merchandise. Toys, collector’s items, apparel, kitchen and household goods, souvenirs: you name it, Disney fans are willing to buy it.
It’s no secret that Walt Disney World and Disneyland merchandise have inflated prices, and it’s widely understood that anything with the ‘Disney’ name attached to it will be priced at more money than it’s worth. It’s also no secret that the Walt Disney Company is an expert at taking money from Guests, often to a frustrating point.
It’s especially true in the post-pandemic era that Disney takes every opportunity to charge Guests more while cutting costs behind the scenes and offering less. In an effort to make up for the losses felt during the pandemic, Disney is willing to take money from every adult, child, and animal inside their stores. Wait a minute, did we write ‘animal?’
For the sake of full disclosure, that was just a joke, and Disney is not taking money from any animals. However, one animal, in particular, found its way into the World of Disney store in Disneyland’s Downtown Disney District.
As we can see in this video, the cutest little hummingbird found its way into this vast store and was flitting about. The colorful merchandise attracted the tiny creature as it zipped here and there, getting up close and personal with the Guests.
Small birds getting stuck after finding their way into a large store isn’t uncommon, but you almost never see hummingbirds stuck inside stores, making this a super rare occurrence.
For anyone as concerned as we were about the little hummingbird’s safety, the comments confirmed that the little guy was able to make its way out of the store.
One TikTok user wrote, “the bird made it out yall! around mid day, it had been there all morning since they opened the store.”
The TikTok user who posted the video also disclosed that the hummingbird had escaped, writing, “UPDATE: the hummingbird flew away outside almost right after I took the video.”
All’s well that ends well in the Happiest Place on Earth!
