If you've been reading the blog lately, you've probably noticed my very extensive post / trip report on Disneyland Paris from our trip in January. On that post, I contrasted my three different trips in three different decades and in three different seasons.
I was pretty impressed by the Merlin L'Enchanteur gift shop and its secret passage down into the dungeon to face the fire-breathing dragon. The inside is even better!
In Paris, Merlin the magician makes his home here.
The inside is incredible!
Little did I know that idea the of a Merlin shop existed for Disneyland in California! But as you can tell by viewing the top image, it was certainly on the drawing boards long. long ago. Going to show once more, old ideas at Imagineering never really die.
