Snapshot! - The House of Magic

On the Streets of America in Disney's Hollywood Studios, a somewhat dark and mysterious storefront facade subtlety pays tribute to, what was for nearly two and a half decades, a Main Street institution at the nearby Magic Kingdom theme park. The House of Magic opened with Walt Disney World in October 1971 and was easily one of the most fun and entertaining retail shops on property. It was sadly closed in spring of 1995 as part of an extensive Main Street makeover.

That's so sad. I've never understood why they closed up the Magic Shop . It was a fun place and a number of fairly well known Los Angeles-area magicians worked there over the years.

An attraction with a true backstory. Yea, the House Of Magic is another detail missed.
