    Ridemakerz inside Team Mickey? Hmm. That's our favorite DTD store - interesting to see how they will incorporate it.

    Thanks Jason!

    According to area Cast, no.

    The new Ridemakerz location is planned to be a section inside the store, similar to the existing Rawlings Making The Game shop.

    Weird. Considering how big the existing Ridemakerz store is, and all that goes into 'building' your car, I can't imagine it going into Team Mickey and especially a small spot similar to the Rawlings shop.
