Shops Closing in Downtown Disney at Disneyland


Build-A-Bear Workshop, Chapel Hats and Ridemakerz will soon close in Downtown Disney at the Disneyland Resort.

The three neighboring shops are closing to make room for more dining facilities in the area, according to a Disneyland Resort spokesperson.

The shops are popular, and not being closed due to poor performance issues, officials said.

A Disney official said there currently is no space to relocate the shops, but if a situation arose showing where they could be put, it would be evaluated.

The shops are:

Build-A-Bear allows kids and parents to create their own Teddy Bear from nearly 30 options, plus add-ons such as clothing and more. After creating the Teddy Bear, it is stuffed in the facility and packaged up for taking home. There are many other Build-A-Bear stores located in the U.S. and other countries.

Chapel Hats has only been open for a little more than a year. It opened in the space formerly occupied by the Little Miss-Matched shop. It has 15 other shops including some at Walt Disney World.

Ridemakerz allows shoppers to fully customize and create their own toy car or truck, complete with battery-powered remote-controlled motor. There are two other Ridemakerz shops, one in Branson Missouri, and the other in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, according to the store’s website.
