Visited Tuesday, January 31st. Shop worth visiting, especially for fans of Dr. Who, Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, Outlander, Downtown Abby, and so many more. I was very tempted to purchase a few things, but they would have exceeded my carry-on weight limit home. Too...More

My daughter loves GoT, Doctor Who, and Harry Potter. She thought she died and went to heaven at Whimsic Alley. We got there shortly before 4 and did not realize at first that you cannot park in front of the store after 4 as that...More

Wow. Just wow. I walked into Whimsic Alley with a friend and we were speechless. We were transported to a rustic England simply by walking through the door. The interior of Whimsic Alley is in-universe with a Harry Potter style. The store is organized like...More
