  • Remembering Merlin's Magic Shop

    One of the elements of the pre-1983 Fantasyland I miss very much is Merlin's Magic Shop. Talk about good theming! For nostalgia's sake, here are four photos I've gleaned from hither and yon in cyberspace:

    Did they have some really nice magic stuff in there, or was it similar to the magic shop on Main Street as is today?

      It was very much like the Main Street one, as far as merchandise is concerned. But the theming was nicer. The sword in the stone was in there.

          He was indeed.

          Then Steve spent three years at the old Merlin's Magic Shop in Fantasyland. There, he sold and demonstrated the packaged magic tricks and practical joke items on sale. He learned all the tricks, and collected all the jokes, writing down every gag. "I knew every nook and cranny of the shop," he recalls.

              Another pic from the Peter Pan side, gives an idea of how Merlin's looked from that angle.
