Virtual Disney Store in Virtual Market 5

Walt Disney Japan will have a presence in Virtual Market 5, opening a Virtual Disney Store for visitors to enjoy and make purchases from Disney's online retail website shopDisney.

From December 19th to 25th, 2020, a Christmas tree will be displayed outside the store, and Christmas goods from the Disney Store will be lined up in the virtual display cases. After December 26th, the Disney Store will shift to "ETO DISNEY" (eto 干支 meaning the 12 animal zodiac signs) for exclusive New Year's goods.

Visitors will also find separate areas for MARVEL and the popular game "Disney Twisted Wonderland."

In the "Disney Twisted Wonderland" area, image accessories elaborately modeled on each dormitory will be on display.

In the MARVEL area, visitors will be greeted by a virtual replica of "Iron Man Mark VI," or more precisely, a replica of the made-to-order figure from BANDAI SPIRITS. In addition, you'll also see a very cool Spiderman T-shirt in a joint collaboration between Disney Store and THRASHER.
