DDW Pic 405. Disney Outfitters
Disney Outfitters is a large shop on Discovery Island in Animal Kingdom. I was giving a tour of this park last week and spent some time in this store. It specializes in jewelry, apparel, and art, but it is also full of great details. Like the other shopping locations on Discovery Island, Disney Outfitters is well themed. Its focus is on animals that travel in herds. This column of carved animals is in the center of the store at the main cash registers. There are four such columns on each corner of the checkout counter. Directly across from the towers of animals are painted compass directions in each corner of the room. The compass directions (N, S, E, and W) refer to the regions of Africa where the corresponding animals are found. These are the kind of overlooked details that make Walt Disney World so interesting.
