Over the years, traveling with the Boston Bruins and to conferences and on vacations, I have been through a lot of airports. However, I’ve been to Orlando most often, and it remains my favorite travel throughway.
From the Airport People Movers (APMs), to the wide concourses, to the Palm Trees — its an outstanding experience, as far as airports go.

Guests arriving or departing from Terminal B at the Orlando International Airport will now find even more Disney magic with the opening of the new Magic of Disney shop. This reimagined merchandise destination is the perfect spot for kicking off a Disney vacation, or for picking up those last-minute souvenirs for friends and family back home.
“The redesigned shop is the perfect backdrop for showcasing authentic merchandise from Disney Parks,” explained Alysia Kelley, Vice President of Visual Merchandising and Location Strategy.

Around Orlando International, the upgrade in Disney retail space is all part of what they call “The Orlando Experience…”
Ranked by J.D. Power “Highest in Customer Satisfaction for Mega Airports” in 2017 & 2018. With more than 46 million annual passengers, MCO is the busiest airport in Florida and 11th busiest in the U.S. MCO has 21,000 badged employees and generates more than $31 billion in revenue for the regional economy. Orlando International Airport strives to value and delight its customers through an airport-wide design concept known as The Orlando Experience®.
And now that experience includes two Disney-centric stores in MCO.
“A curated collection of beloved merchandise awaits travelers, from apparel and accessories to home goods and iconic Mouse-eared headwear. The location will also carry “must-have” items that are currently available exclusively in merchandise locations at Walt Disney World Resort,” wrote Miller. “The newly transformed Magic of Disney store joins the existing Disney’s EarPort store, which is located in Terminal A.
“These retail locations, combined with Disney’s Magical Express and the popular Minnie Van Service, which provide direct transportation to our Disney Resort hotels, are great examples of our strong, continued partnership with Orlando International Airport.
“For years, we’ve worked together to create an unparalleled arrival and departure experience for Guests visiting Walt Disney World Resort and the Orlando area.”
My family is finalizing plans for our annual summer vacation, and now I know that I can soften the blow of having to head home with a final experience at “The Magic of Disney.”
What do you think of this new Disney store at Orlando International? Will you make it a part of your plans the next time you head to WDW?
