    Default Wine and Dine RunICOT 2018 Day 1 Quick Takes

    Nice afternoon at Disney Springs, not too crowded and checked out the new World of Disney store and Disney style. With my obligatory stop by the marketplace Co Op.

    Mixed feelings on World of Disney store, missed the structure of the different rooms, but you can see where you were going better. Really donít think they opened up much space for walking, the open design seems to be more about removing all the intermediate walls, more structured aisle ways , but then still small spaces to get to almost all of the merchandise. Like all the little animation history related touches, and the Mickey Mouse club section. Definitely pay attention to the counter at the registers for some more details in addition to the advertised magic that goes on behind them on the wall. Could have used some more of those touches though, definitely feels overly generic In several spots. For example in the center of the store there is an open second floor space with blue tinted glass, they could easily have different Disney characters silhouettes walking by, this would still keep with the more subtle execution but add more Disney animation touches.

    Very nice dinner with Justin at the Edison. Nice restaurant inside and both had good burgers. Neither of us could figure out though what took them so long to build it. Liked the craft cocktail I got, somewhat ambivalent to going back for food based on the other dining choices in the area, but think I would for sure stop in for to try some other craft cocktails.

    For me, the Edison was a one and done thing. I think it was the same for my kids. It is nice to go in and see it, but there's too many other choices at Disney Springs that I enjoy more.

    Felt the same way about the Edison - good - but a little slow for service and better choices abound in Disney Springs... Cool atmosphere though and would like to go back for the after hours goings on.

    Agree about the Edison. Cocktails were 10/10 but the food is meh. I will go back for late night happenings and drinks next time.

    Thanks for your take on the restyled Disney store. We went in a couple of weeks ago and left undecided as to whether we like the changes. I liked the different rooms in the old store. The reworked store feels a bit warehouse like to me. I think I'll need a few more visits.....
