Disneyland Magic Shop

Posted on September 24, 2008 by chris ballinger There have been 5 comment(s)

In my never-ending attempt to turn family vacations into business trips I dragged my family to the magic shop on Main Street in Disneyland. Magic Geek's roots are in the brick and mortar magic shops and they still serve as our inspiration. Also, they're just so darn fun to go into.


Since I was a little kid, I've insisted that we stop at the magic shop on Main Street. In a place that is so reliant on tourists buying souvenirs, it's fascinating that the old shop is still there and still stocking classic and advanced magic. They could have just filled it with the easy plastic stuff and called it a day, but they still maintain the integrity of old school magic.


The store has a long history in Disneyland. I talked with the lady behind the counter for a while about how Steve Martin used to work there back in the 70s. I also find it cool that Disney seeks out clerks that can actually demo every trick in the store.


Anyway, the Main Street Magic Shop gets two very geeky thumbs up from me. They may not have a ton of magic, but they make what they do have count. And they also gave my daughter a "First Visit" pin, so that was cool.

    Thank you Disneyland for bringing in an outside vendor and keeping the Magic shop not just alive but a quality magic shop. For a time there I think it was in danger of becoming just another pin shop.

    Good Call, Tim. I was just there this last weekend and I love what they've done with that shop.
