(4/24/2021) Merchant of Venus Closed?

I was really disappointed to hear that the Merchant of Venus shop might be closed, per this WDWNT article: https://wdwnt.com/2021/04/merchant-of-venus-page-removed-from-disney-world-website-shop-likely-taken-over-by-wreck-it-ralph-attraction-at-magic-kingdom/ . It’s a perfectly located shop – right next to Lunching Pad, which I also love for a quick hot dog snack – to shop for souvenirs after coming from Astro Orbiter, the PeopleMover, Carousel of Progress, etc.

I especially love the name – it’s a pun on Merchant of Venice, a famous play by Shakespeare.

With that said, I wouldn’t be surprised to see a general overhaul of the Tomorrowland area, especially with the TRON rollercoaster being built up nearby.
