Clearly, there are a LOT of terrific reasons to be excited about what the future holds in store for Disney World. I’m sure our collective minds were all blown when word came out about the Star Wars-themed Lands coming to both Disney World and Disneyland, Toy Story Land coming to Hollywood Studios, and the Jungle Cruise-themed Skipper Canteen coming to Magic Kingdom’s Adventureland later this year. It’s difficult to be disappointed with any of the recent news!
But every once in a while, I can’t help but look back on some of those favorite spots that are no longer with us… and right at the top of the list is the Adventurers Club in what was formerly Downtown Disney’s Pleasure Island. Someone in Disney merchandise design must feel the same way, as evidenced by the Adventurers Club sign up for grabs in a few locations around Disney World.
I believe this sign made its debut — appropriately enough — at the Sign Shop in Downtown Disney’s Marketplace Co-op in March.
But I recently noticed it at the Zawadi Marketplace gift shop in Animal Kingdom Lodge, which is the first time I spotted it outside of the Co-op (though it may be in other merchandise locations as well).
Here are some close-up shots of the text…
“Come in a Stranger. Leave a little stranger.” 🙂 Back. In. The. DAY.
Or maybe not. Either way, I think this sign is a great tribute to what once was.
Are there any Disney World location signs you would want to hang up in your home? Please let us know with a comment!
