Disneyland Resort announces two kid-focused retail tenants for Downtown Disney

Rating: 3 votes, 5.00 average.
The Disneyland Resort announced two new Downtown Disney tenants today, both offering what is known in the retail industry as "grandma bait." Recession-weary tourists may be cutting back on the collectible trinkets and home decor items for themselves, but it seems there's always a market for kids clothing and accessories.

LittleMissMatched opened a temporary location in Downtown Disney two weeks ago, and the retailer's first permanent, stand-alone location will open in August. The current location occupies one third of the space vacated by Department 56; the permanent location is under construction right next door.

Kitson Kids, the childrens branch of the LA-based Kitson boutique chain, will open their first Orange County location in July. The store will occupy the space recently vacated by Starabillias, dashing the hopes of those who really wanted another quick serve restaurant in Downtown Disney. Kitson is known for their celebrity clientelle and trend-setting merchandise. Their collection ranges from toys and games with birthday-party-friendly prices all the way to $700 diaper bags.

“We are thrilled to welcome these two innovative concepts to Downtown Disney this summer," said Tony Bruno, vice president Disneyland Resort hotels and Downtown Disney. “Kitson Kids and LittleMissMatched offer unique merchandise that – in Orange County – guests will only find here. These well-respected retailers are a great fit with Downtown Disney’s eclectic blend of shops, restaurants and entertainment.”
