Merlin's Magic Shop

One of two magic shops at Disneyland, this was Merlin's own shop in Fantasyland. The other shop of course was the Main Street Magic Shop. Also, I cannot forget the Magic Shop at the Disneyland Hotel. Run by the magic apparatus company Taylor and Hume and stocked with everything a budding young magician could want such as fake vomit, trick cards and disappearing coins. A young magician worked here who would later become a fantastic comedian and movie star. If I could only find the shirt (black and white diamonds) he wore when he toiled in the shop!

The magic shop was one of a few really great hide-aways for me at Disneyland. It definitely felt like a different world. Wonderful pic. When I see him, I'll say to Steve for you.

My coins disappeared all over Disneyland, not just in this store!

gosh I cannot believe that all the stores at Disney now sell the exact same Disney branded junk -- no unique products -- do you remember the rabbit furs in Frontierland?
