Marketplace Co Op Opens At The Downtown Disney Marketplace

Marketplace Co Op

The Marketplace Co Op opened today at the Downtown Disney Marketplace, and we were fortunate enough to get an early peek at this new and exciting area!

The Marketplace Co Op, in the former Team Mickey location, houses six specialty merchandise locations that will be updated every quarter so your shopping experience will be able to change with the season to serve as a showcase for new items and lines of products.

The interior of the Marketplace Co Op is really sparse and industrial looking so that the individual spaces can really take on the lifestyle and look of its content.

I especially loved the chandelier with its mixture of antiques and modern sensibility.

I also like how the Marketplace Co Op is still open to TrenD and Downtown Disney Marketplace Guest Relations to give the space an even more unified feel!

Now it is time to get to the good part…

The six new specialty merchandise locations of the Marketplace Co Op!!!

D-Tech on Demand has a wide variety of electronics, headphones, speakers, phone cases, and electronic accessories, but the gem of the store is the D-Tech On Demand Cases!

In the center of the store is a bay of iPads where you can choose the perfect case for YOU and even personalize it with your name! Currently the D-Tech On Demand Cases are only available for the iPhone 4/4S/5/5S and the Samsung Galaxy S3 & S4. We were told that new phones will be added soon!

Also available are Disney Vacation Club Resort specific phone cases with the DVC logo. DVC member do receive a 10% discount on these customized cell phone cases. We were given conflicting information about if these are exclusive to DVC members, so we will update you with information as we find out!

The Trophy Room: Vintage inspired, lifestyle sports apparel, and collectibles.

Marketplace Co Op

While this area of the Marketplace Co Op is definitely the least ‘Disney’ of the areas I have to say that it is one of my absolute favorites!

Marketplace Co Op World Cup

The area has an old world gentleman’s sporting club feel, and is filled with vintage apparel that is absolutely reasonably priced!

Marketplace Co Op

I was kind of bummed that they didn’t have an runDisney Merchandise here, since Team Mickey was the place to get those items!

However, my biggest complaint about The Trophy Room is that there was no love for my Alma Mater Virginia Tech…Go Hokies!!!

Beautifully Disney: A beauty destination for woman featuring make-up, fragrance, and beauty accessories.

Marketplace Co Op Beautifully Disney

The Beautifully Disney area at the Marketplace Co Op is definitely the smallest area of the six, but it packs quite a punch with all that they have to offer!

Marketplace Co Op Aulani

Inside this area you will find the entire Beautifully Disney line, spa items that are exclusive to Aulani, H2O products, and fragrances galore.

Marketplace Co Op Pop of Minnie

There are also certified makeup artists that are happy to give you a complimentary mini-makeover using the Beautifully Disney products! Talk about a great break from the parks!

Right now, they have an extremely limited promotion where for every $60 you spend you can receive a shirt with the Beautifully Disney logo. There are only 300 of these shirts, so they will go quickly.

One little tid bit of fun! While I was getting my mini-makeover this morning we got a peek at the new Beautifully Disney Makeup Mirror coming to the stores in December. The details are amazing and it’s a great size for home and travel. I have a feeling that I am going to be buying a lot of these as gifts for the holidays!

Marketplace Co Op Mirror

Centerpiece: Home product for Guests that want a splash of Disney in their room furnishings, textiles, and everyday ware.

Marketplace Co Op Centerpiece

Centerpiece at the Marketplace Co Op is going to cause a lot of issues in my house, because there wasn’t one thing that I didn’t want to buy!!!!

Marketplace Co Op Orange Bird

You had me rom the 20,000 Leagues Mug, the Orange Bird wall of amazingness, the Mr. Toad small tray, and the Tiki Room Cloth Napkins!

Marketplace Co Op 20,000 Leagues Mug

I’m just going to give you pictures so we can mourn the loss of our money together!!!

Zoey and Pickles: A girls’ destination containing the latest trends and glamour for the up and coming fashionista.

Marketplace Co Op Zoey and Pickles

So my Zoe will not know that Zoey and Pickles exists, because she will want everything in this store!!!

Marketplace Co Op Pascal Shirt

Full of great clothes, accessories, and shoes in an assortment of styles Zoey and Pickles is sure to have something that your girl can’t live without.

Marketplace Co Op Shoes

The displays are fun and colorful, and even the stools are just the right size for them to sit and try on shoes!

This is a much needed area for girls who have maybe outgrown the Princesses, but are still a little young to venture next door to TrenD!

Cherry Tree Lane: Accessories for the sophisticated woman with a passion for scarves, shoes, bags and jewelry.

Marketplace Co Op Cherry Tree Lane

Cherry Tree Lane…you are also going to get me in a lot of trouble!!!

Marketplace Co Op Mary Poppins

The design of Cherry Tree Lane has a lot of nods to Mary Poppins and is home to a great line of merchandise inspired by the movie

Marketplace Co Op Vera Bradley

This is also going to be where you will find new Disney Dooney and Bourke and Disney Vera Bradley purses launching in the future.

Full of fun accessories, purses to die for, and a great atmosphere Cherry Tree Lane is awesome!

A lot of the merchandise featured at the Marketplace Co Op is currently available on DisneyShopping.com, however we are hearing that the pieces are selling out quickly, so my best piece of advice is to call Walt Disney World Merchandise Guest Services at 877-560-6477 (toll Free) with a detailed description of what you are looking for if you can’t wait for your ‘Must Have’ items!

Marketplace Co Op Shopping Bag

I really love the idea of the Marketplace Co Op, because it is a way to get out of the hustle and bustle that can be shopping at Walt Disney World for more of a boutique and unique shopping experience. I also can’t wait to see how these spaces evolve as Disney Springs is built!!!

We posted more photos on our Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook accounts if you want even more great pics from this morning at the Marketplace Co Op!
