News! Disney Food Merchandise Coming to Downtown Disney’s Marketplace Co-op

As Downtown Disney begins its transformation in earnest to Disney Springs, there are already oodles of changes taking place. Just last week, Disney announced the closing date for Pollo Campero and NYC Babycakes in the Marketplace for March 19th.

But we’re not just saying goodbye to things, thankfully. There are already some “hellos” on the way in the not-too-distant future! Specifically, the Marketplace Co-op — formerly Team Mickey — will open its doors in just a couple months (no official opening date yet!).

Disney recently provided a glimpse at some of merchandise that will make it’s debut at this location. According to Disney, the Marketplace Co-op will feature six boutiques and “serve as a testing space” for new retail shops and products. I gotta say, the first glimpse of some of the dining and kitchen merchandise coming to the Disney Centerpiece boutique has already passed the test with me…

I love the Dole Whip air fresheners that showed up at Disney World several months ago, but now it looks like we’ll be able to bring home 3-D versions of this treasured treat in a miniature ceramic! How cute would that be on a desk or shelf? (You’ll notice right next to the Dole Whips is also a ceramic Orange Bird :) .)

You know the last thing I need in my home? Another glass. Still… you know what I totally need? Those colorful Adventureland glasses… or perhaps the Aloha Isle hurricanes! What?!??!?!?!?!

Every time I look at this picture I notice something new. For instance, our friend, the Orange Bird, is perched on top of an Adventureland napkin or placemat.

I love the rest of the line inspired by Adventureland, and those nods to some of the details – and our favorite birds! – found in Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room. All the plates you see in these images, by the way, are small appetizer plates, as opposed to full size dinner plates.

There will also be a line of drinkware adorned with images inspired by vintage attraction posters. Here is a peek at the Space Mountain series (check out the Pilsner glass!).

I really think this is finger-on-the-pulse-of-the-fans kind of stuff, and captures so much of what we love about both Disney World and Disneyland.

Coming Soon... Marketplace Co-Op

    Are your sure they are dole whips or The Citrus Swirl!!!! I am so getting one and no matter what I’m calling it a CS. Yes like the other’s have stated this could be dangerous, I can equip my kitchen with all things Disney (my hubby will not be pleased but oh well right! :) ) So many items for all my Disney friends. Guess what everyone is getting for Christmas.

    Oh my gosh – the fact that this may not be open for our trip this summer will please my credit card! I see so many things I simply must have :D

    disney groceries, so you can shop w/out leaving the property & have disney transportation this would be a godsend for travelers who have kitchens in their resorts and want to buy more than a snack at the gift shop

    So excited for the Adventureland items as that is my favorite land. Combining my favorite place with my favorite place in my home (kitchen) and I am in heaven.

    love love love! So excited to see some disney home goods that have that mid-century modern vintage feel. Looks like the next trip, I will be bringing some disney merch home that fits in with the rest of the house!

    I would love to see a store offering some signifies merchandise from Disney parks and resorts around the world. For example, I love disney, and I live in Florida so my home is very coastal in it’s decor, and I would love to add some Aulani to my home, but I will not find myself in Hawaii anytime soon. I think it would be great to have access to some home decor, apparel, and artwork from the different parks and resorts, not just WDW merch.

    I LOVE the drink ware inspired by vintage attraction posters! Would love to have the Space Mountain coaster, coffee mug, and shot glass!
