Island Mercantile, One of the Four Themed Discovery Island Shops

Discovery Island at Disney’s Animal Kingdom has four different shops for you to spend some time (and money) in while you visit the park. However, as with everything Disney, there’s more to the story of these shops. Over the next few weeks we’re going to take a closer look at each of the four stores and the theme that is tied to each one. We begin today with Island Mercantile.

Island Mercantile is located to the left of the entrance to Discovery Island. As you approach the store you’ll notice carvings of different, brightly colored animals. When you walk inside, you’ll see that this carries over into the interior as well. But look closely. Can you spot a theme that connects the different pieces of decoration?

The Island Mercantile is centered around animals that migrate as well as animals that work.  These types of animals are all over the store, from the decorations on the wall to the lighting.
