The Orlando area’s M&M’s Store is making the move to Disney Springs next year.
The new store in Disney Springs’ West Side section will be located near Splitsville, the NBA Experience and the soon-to-debut “Drawn to Life” Cirque du Soleil show. The exact location was once occupied by Curl, which closed in August, and the Fit2Run store.
“Disney Springs is one of the most popular retail destinations in the country, making it the perfect location for our new M&M’S experiential store,” Patrick McIntyre, director of global retail at Mars Retail Group, said in a statement. “Guests will be fully immersed into an interactive chocolate experience that will create more moments and more smiles through the colorful fun of M&M’S.”
The move means the existing 16,000-square-foot M&M’s Store location at the Florida Mall will close at some point before the new store’s opening, scheduled for sometime in 2020.
The current store is promoted as carrying “over 7,000 unique M&M’s items. These range from M&M’s-branded clothes and cooking utensils to — of course — plenty of chocolate. It also offers photo opportunities with M&M’s characters.
The Disney Springs location will be one of five M&M’s Stores around the world. The others are located in New York, Las Vegas, Shanghai, and London.
