THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF GAMING

Living in Delaware her whole life, Jessica did not know much about Walt Disney World until she went at 13 years old. That initial trip, though, got her hooked on the magic. As the years went on, she did everything she could to learn more about Disney (including watching documentaries and reading books). She did not know many people that shared her passion until she discovered the wonders of the internet and the Disney community found on it. She has gotten involved with as many Disney projects as she can, including writing the weekly news articles for The Disney Driven Life and writing for her own blog, The True Disney Fan. Jessica has also taken on a position with Celebrations Magazine, working the social media aspects of the publication. Through all these platforms, Jessica strives to bring as much Disney magic as possible into her everyday life, and she works to share it with everyone she meets!


This past Saturday, a new, interactive area opened up in Downtown Disney’s store, Once Upon A Toy.  This area, called The Wonderful World of Gaming, was opened up by Disney Interactive Studios and allows customers to play some of the latest Disney video games before they purchase them.

There are three stations where you can play Wii games and seven stations for Nintendo DS playing experiences.  This new area of the Once Upon A Toy store, according to Disney Parks Blog, has “the most extensive collection of Disney Interactive video games in all of Walt Disney World.”  If there is a video game that you want, this is where to get it! The grand opening on Saturday had lots of giveaways and activities that were offered to all who stopped by.  The nice part about this video gaming experience, all of the games are family friendly, so everyone can get involved and have some fun! The games that are offered to try are the latest games, but you can be sure they will be updated when new games come out.  I know I would love to go there and try out Epic Mickey!

So if you are in Walt Disney World and want to try the latest and greatest Disney Interactive games, just head over to Downtown Disney Marketplace and visit this new gaming area.
