Blackcatter BS: Raglan Road Pub at Walt Disney World (26) RE: BS: Raglan Road Pub at Walt Disney World 03 Jan 06


Well when I worked at Disney (Main Street U.S.A., selling mickey watches) the ponchos stayed the same price no matter what.

I've been in the guitar shop, but I don't play guitar, so I can't give you an idea of how expensive things are. Actually, Disney has a track record of not raising the prices of non-Disney merchandise. That's not to say it isn't marked up, but at least not all that much. When I worked there, Disney had an official policy to keep the prices of regular stuff relatively low since they didn't sell that much of the stuff anyway.

Shops like the guitar shop don't need to pay for themselves. They're there mainly as window dressing and browsing opportunities. I remember years ago that the German pavillion sold only about 5 Hummels a week, a tiny number considering they saw some 50,000 people a day walking by them.

Downtown Disney has one place I do occasionally shop - the only Virgin Music Megastore in the area. Fair prices, and really the only large store in the area for CDs, DVDs and the such.
