Ears, the symbol of all things Mickey, are found throughout the Disney properties. Over the years, they’ve been adapted for every conceivable function. In the Grand Canyon Concourse at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, they become minimalist sculpture. Sleek and metallic, they form the entrances to the Fantasia gift shop.
The shop is colorful and fun with a red and blue sorcerer theme. The roofless construction and large mouse ear portals help maintain a light and “eary” feel in keeping with this soaring space. The shelves are filled with lots of Disney vacation essentials like pins, autograph books, and photo frames. There is a selection of clothing and household items, as well as toys, games, and seasonal merchandise. Fantasia is open from 7:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. and is located on the 4th floor, at the opposite end of the concourse from Chef Mickey’s.
