Something I've been meaning to post: With the closure of some Disney Channels worldwide, there's one other international division of Disney that has been winding-down operations, and that's their bricks-and-mortar stores, in other words The Disney Store.
This was my local Disney Store, it's a pop-up Christmas shop at the moment.

This is what it used to look like:

I can understand why they've closed their retail business, it's expensive to run, and the products in these stores weren't always cheap, and you can buy direct from Disney from their online store. Besides, you can buy these products elsewhere, and Disney has an extensive licensing programme. Only one Disney Store remains in the UK, and that's on Oxford Street, in London, they kept that one for a very good reason, it's an international premiere shopping location. One also remains in Dublin, Ireland.
All Disney Stores in the UK and ROI are set to close by September 2021, except the flagship stores at London's Oxford Street and in Dublin, which will remain open.www.theindustry.fashion
The good news is that my town will be getting a Disney Cafe very soon at the local Primark (I used to work here many years ago during my University days) and there's already one in Birmingham city centre. Rather operating businesses themselves, Disney would rather license their brand out. Primark holds Disney and Cartoon Network product licenses for clothing.

I was told by PR that Moon Girl had been shelved on Disney+ alongside Chip 'n Dale: Park Life.Some continuities from few months:
DC Portugal between 13th and 15th May:
DC CEE (Hungarian feed) from 20th May:
DC Latin America from 7th June:
DC Israel from 18th June:
Why pull those shows on those certain intl versions? The latter is an Plus original while Moon Girl gets a second seasonI was told by PR that Moon Girl had been shelved on Disney+ alongside Chip 'n Dale: Park Life.

I manage a website where I do like to incorporate creativity and beside the point I had thought of a number of theories. One was that similar to Turkey, Disney Junior would be the only Disney branded channel in that market seeing as it isn't viewed as a "premium channel" which is declining for streaming and is the top preschool channel while Disney Channel instead of completely phasing out it rebrands to something else keeping only the current programs like Molly, H&G, Miraculous etc. and licence other shows. Better than what cable providers in Asia tried to attempt with their replacements.I wouldn't be SO sure Disney African channels will be the next to close down, I'd put my bets more on some more European feeds.
Aside from France, being "artificially" on life support, thanks to Canal+ having poured too much money into an agreement.
But the channels feel already kind of weak
