Picture tour of The WoD NYC.

Since starting work there I have found out a lot of neat things about the store. Even tho the store isn't in an actual theme park, the theming is still all there, even when you don't expect it.

This will change the way you see the store if you have been there before! It certainly changed things fro me.

So what you are walking into is not just the WoD NYC, it's Mickey's NYC Mansion.

As you walk in, you are in the grand room, the main room of the house. To the right hand side is the elevator for the 3 floors.

The sides are Snow White themed.





To the left hand side, about halfway up the wall, is Mickey's fireplace. It used to have a big mantle picture over it, but apparently it fell and was never put back up.

The top of the mantle.


(There was a customer in the way so this was the best i could do fro the pic)


There are several "hidden mickeys" around.




In the center of the room is the cash registers. BUT they are modeled after the pipe organ from Cinderella. I always thought they were a nod to the Wilderness Lodge or something. If you remove all the merchandise from the front of the register counters there is a full keyboard drawn onto it.





When you walk past the organ you enter "The Courtyard". Essentially you are entering the backyard of Mickey's Mansion. The floors even turn from floor to cobble stones (its a rug but you get the drift).


The theming is completely different than the front of the store.



When you turn around and face the front of the store you will see windows and open shutters so it appears that you are outside looking into the mansion.



The 2nd floor is considered like the play room (mostly toys and kids stuff is sold there) and the top floor is considered the gallery (where all the art and collectibles are).

Here are some random pictures of the upstairs.

2nd Floor Elevator.










I have some older pics of some more stuff in the store that I took before I was a CM, if anyone wants to see , let me know!

Hope you enjoyed it!

Central Park & The Alice In Wonderland Statue!

This past Thursday KC picked me up from work and we went to have a little picnic in Central Park. I have been working for over a month now and passing by one entrance to the park every day and I have been too tired to go in. So today we decided that had to change!

We went in on 59th and 5th ave. This is one of the statues outside.


We walked past the Central Park Zoo, which apparently has gone up $2 since the last time went and is now $10 to get in. it's cool in there tho. I could watch the penguins all day. You can see into the main area through the gates, and a sea lion happened to be longing so I got a pic!



This is the clock that moves around and the animals rotate. I got all excited when i heard it going off but then realized it was half past the hour and they only move on the hour. oh well.



Right past the zoo.


The top of the entrance to the Children's Zoo.


We stopped at a bench a ways past the zoo. KC had gone to subway and got 2 sandwiches and we shared them and people watched. It was a beautiful afternoon.



Hey Jordan-aren't you proud? I didn't even ask him to do it. I swear he can't take a normal picture- EVER!

Then we decided to go on the search for one of the only things I have never seen in Central Park- The Alice in Wonderland Statue. After reading punkin's TR i really knew I had to see it.

So off we went, wandering and taking pics.



I love it when the park and the city mix in the same photo- so weird but so cool. Its one of the things I love about NYC.



Thank you very much foliage setting on my camera for this neat picture...




We found it!







It was really cool. People are ridiculous tho, climbing all over it like its a jungle gym! KC & I sat on a bench and let most of the people clear out so we could take some nice photos of it. It was hard tog et any when kids were playing on it too. But I digress.

I also took a few pics if the quotes from the book that surround the statue. Very neat.





KC and his favorite toy, his phone.


We literally lounged on the bench for about half hour. it was so nice out and we had a great time just being there.

On the walk back out we came across this weird bench, sun dial type thing.


We wandered out of the park around 72nd street and decided to take the bus downtown since it was closer than the subway was. I was tired so I sat on a bench to wait, KC waited at the bus stop.


And thats all she wrote! It was a great day out tho! Thanks for reading!

Thanks for all the pictures from the World of Disney! Although it did make me sad to think I won't ever see it in person before it closes.

The Alice in Wonderland statue in Central Park is so neat!!!

Hey Kat,

Love your photos of Central Park...we're planning to see the zoo and the Alice statue in two weeks from today and the next day we're flying out of Newark...lol......Great Minds...

We're also going to come into your store on 5th Avenue-any cute tee shirts (or other)in right now?-I like to get the NY merchandise 'cause its a little different than what's in the parks...(I love your photos...-will anyone stop me if I come in taking photos like a lunatic...)...can I get them on a Photopass...

We're doing Boma and Sci Fi too-I envy your 1900 Park Fare Ressie-I blanked on character meals when I scheduled my ADRs-I did get Tusker house but I like the 1900's characters...(The Mad Hatter is a scream...)

There's a lot of the I mickey new york stuff, mickey being a mickey head instead of a heart. We have a lot of the NY stuff, I'd def say get some of that because i have no idea what they will do with it after the store closes. Also theres a clearance stand in the back (in the courtyard) that has various stuff and lately i have seen NY magnets, shot glasses and sweatshirts for real cheap.

I loved the Tusker breakfast too. I asked Pants to pick the characters he wanted to 1900 park fare it is!

Loved the Central Park pics too! The Alice statue is interesting. Makes me wish the Johnny Depp Alice in Wonderland was coming out sooner than it's scheduled!!
