  • Shop vs. Showroom: Moving Merchandise Inventories out of the Parks

    In the thread about finding ways to expand Disneyland, I happened to mention how logical it would be for the company to move its wardrobe department to the remote area where most of the employees park their cars.

    This leaves a large warehouse without a purpose, so I imagined the potential for Disney to transform most of its shops into showrooms where seemingly one-of-a-kind theme merchandise is displayed for purchase but where the stockrooms and inventories for said merchandise are not similarly situated. Guests are already using the Package Express service to deliver their purchases to the front gate, so it might make more sense to just store the inventories there, in the first place.

    Doing so would not only increase the square footage available at each store, but shop-lifting would also decrease.

    Small items and those pieces of merchandise guests use while they are at Disneyland would still be stored inside the parks. And, if some guests prefer carrying their packages, a small inventory of each item might remain, as well. But, for collectibles and other bigger items, storing the inventories outside the parks may be a great idea.
