As the sun rose above the enchanting kingdom, our eyes widened with anticipation. It was Hannah Alper and my first visit to the magical realm of Dunder Mifflin by the way of The Office Experience at Yorkdale in Toronto, our version of Disneyland, a place we had watched countless hours about and dreamt of experiencing firsthand (the set, not an actual office, we’ve both done that before. It’s not so fun at times.) Clutching our tickets tightly, we could hardly contain our excitement as they approached the grand entrance.
We weren’t the only ones, and although there weren’t any lines, others who explored the various themed rooms were dressed up as their favourite character, which was awesome to see, and made us feel at times we were standing beside the ‘real’ Dwight Schrute.
The Office Experience is a fully immersive and interactive celebration of the beloved television show, The Office. We stepped inside our favorite mid-level regional paper company, explored set recreations, got a closer look at original show props, and shopped at The Office Experience Store. It’s a win-win-win. The Office Experience at Yorkdale were filled with set recreations, original show costumes and props, and opportunities for us to celebrate our favorite moments and characters from The Office to astonishing glee (that’s what she said!)
Starting off literally in the Scranton Business Parking Lot and into the Dunder Mifflin Scranton office. You can also dance down the aisle at Jim and Pam’s wedding, spill Kevin’s famous chili, visit Michael Scott Paper Company, check out every character’s desk re-made to the exact specifications and items left in their working area, and more.
The Office Experience exceeded all our expectations, and you have to go if you’re a fan. As the great Michael Scott once said, “‘You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take. – Wayne Gretzky.'”
