    I saw the 40th merchandise in some of the stores and was a little baffled about it. Maybe trying to get some sales through the holiday season? My only thought was that it was a little pricey...
    Too many trips to keep track of now! Vacation WDW twice a year so any questions ask freely ☺️

    Not sure what I was expecting, but I was very underwhelmed by this. It's just a few shelves of merchandise. Although I am glad they are finally carrying the iPhone and iPad accessories.
