Walt Disney World Shop: Remembering Cherry Tree Lane in Disney Springs

Walt Disney World Shop: Remembering Cherry Tree Lane in Disney Springs

Cherry Tree Lane

Based on the upscale London address in Disney’s Mary Poppins, Cherry Tree Lane was a source of must-stop shopping fun at the Marketplace Co-Op at Disney Springs in Walt Disney World.

Cherry Tree Lane The Dress Shop Disney Springs

While the square footage of this store was small, there were a lot of tempting items for purchase lining the shelves. From pricey Dooney & Bourke handbags to unique jewelry, Cherry Tree Lane was THE place to splurge on a souvenir or gift.

The Dress Shop at Cherry Tree Lane

The Dress Shop was a collection of nostalgic Disney designs for adults. Perfectly created for grown-ups, dresses and accessories featured designs from popular Disney attractions.

Designs were inspired by Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room, “it’s a small world,” The Haunted Mansion, and the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Other creations showcased classic Disney characters, including Minnie Mouse, Snow White from Walt Disney’s “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” and Alice from Walt Disney’s “Alice in Wonderland.”

This was one of my favorite places to shop at Walt Disney World!

Author P.L. Travers brought magic to 17 Cherry Tree Lane with the arrival of Mary Poppins to this fictitious address in London. Shopkeepers at The Dress Shop at Cherry Tree Lane in the Marketplace Co-Op of Disney Springs used to send shoppers on their way with nostalgic outfits.

While Cherry Tree Lane is now closed, there are many other places to shop at Disney Springs. Don’t miss Tren-D, DisneyStyle, Marketplace Co-Op, Vera Bradley, and World of Disney. Just to name a few!

Walt Disney World Throwbacks: Chef Remy and More!

Walt Disney World Throwbacks: Chef Remy and More!

Let’s take a look at some Walt Disney World throwbacks. These are things I miss at Walt Disney World. Some, like Wishes, were removed recently.

My Walt Disney World Throwbacks are…

Chef Remy at Les Chefs de France

An adorable dinner guest, Chef Remy was at his best while visiting tables at Les Chefs de France in Epcot. This was one of my favorite dining experiences, however it ended in October of 2013.

Disney Stars and Motor Cars Parade

The Disney Stars and Motor Cars Parade in Disney’s Hollywood Studios debuted in October 2001. My son’s first visit to WDW was January 2002, thus he grew up watching these floats go by.

Disney Stars and Motor Cars Parade featured a Toy Story Float.

From our seats on the steps of the now-defunct Sounds Dangerous, he had fun waving to the characters. In fact, the variety of characters and fun motor vehicles made this afternoon entertainment a highlight of our Disney World visits.

Mickey and Minnie were stars of the Disney Stars and Motor Cars Parade.

Hi Mickey and Minnie!

R2-D2 rolled along the parade route! Unfortunately, this parade’s last run was in March 2008.

Mickey’s and Minnie’s Country Houses in Toontown Fair

While this was a small land in the Magic Kingdom, Toontown Fair offered kids and kids-at-heart the chance to tour the homes of Mickey and Minnie. These structures were removed to make way for an updated Fantasyland.

My son toured these houses with wide eyes throughout his younger years. He was fascinated with their homes and was always excited to see where the beloved mice lived. I miss the simplicity of these attractions. While simple, they were extraordinarily magical for children and their parents.

Kids flocked to Minnie’s oven to watch the cake that was baking inside.

While it’s fun to embrace the new happenings at Walt Disney World, every now and then it’s nice to pay homage to the extinct attractions that were special to families.

One of our favorite Walt Disney World Throwbacks is Chef Remy.
