Shopping at Downtown Disney
Definitely make sure you visit DownTown Disney, as the shops are fantastic and different. We always go and can spend hours just window-shopping, there is something for everyone.
Art of Disney has a fantastic array of limited edition animation art and Disney collectibles including the WDCC (Walt Disney Classic Collectible) pieces. This is a lovely gallery just to spend 20 minutes looking and wishing
Basin is a shop full of smellys - homemade soaps, facials, body masks, shampoos and you can get them made to order. Prices start at $3. 95. Massage bars include assorted scents for $5. 99 and $6. 99. Bath salts are $3. 95 per tube – make your suitcase smell wonderful if you take some home for gifts!
Disney Pin Traders. You will find the ultimate pin-purchasing-and-trading location is in Downtown Disney! You can make your own photo pins for $15.
My Mom’s favourite shop has to be Disney's Days of Christmas. Shopping for Christmas all year round! Lovely Christmas ornaments, animated figurines and pretty much everything you could need. I love the Sorcerer Mickey items and of course the Disney Character Stockings. I am sure you have all visited the other Disney Christmas shop in Liberty Square in the Magic Kingdom but this is larger.
If you are looking for gifts then try Disney's Wonderful World of Memories - Walt Disney World-branded scrapbook supplies, including albums, pre-packaged kits, adhesive tape pens, glue sticks, scissors, and a wide assortment of colourful Disney stickers. An array of Disney books, stationery, pens and postcards, and you can create scrapbook pages and postcards. (Located next to Art of Disney).
If you are a crystal fan then visit Eurospain. Artists engrave and decorate custom designs and perform the 700-year-old tradition of glassblowing here with a myriad of Swarovski items available with Disney themes! You will find very unique Disney merchandise for sale although not very many bargains to be had in this shop. Eurospain stores are also located on Main Street in the Magic Kingdom and in the Mexican Marketplace in Epcot. My daughter simply had to have a Glass Slipper at $9. 50 for a mini (luckily escaped the larger one at $27. 50! ) They do Disney glassware that you can have engraved with your name; prices start at $10. 50 so that would be a nice gift.
One of my favourites is Goofy’s Candy Company that opened Spring 2005 and features an interactive show kitchen filled with gorgeous sweetie bits and pieces! A great place to leave to last so you can tell the kids “we are going to Goofy’s shop soon!
If you are on a budget or you have done the usual you have $10 to spend and that’s it then visit Mickey’s Mart where everything is only Ten Dollars and Under. It features unique gifts, as well as Surprise Grab Bags and Items of the Week – great presents for little ones, there are even offers of Buy 4 for $10.
And also for the kids is the LEGO Imagination Centre where you see fabulous LEGO Models that include a larger than life dinosaur family, a 30ft sea serpent, an alien family with spaceship and a group of construction workers building the store – everyone has their photos taken with these! We always fill a tub full of Lego (well I say we, Mom does that but that’s what grandparents are for! )
Once Upon A Toy offers everything from classic games such as Mr Potato Head to figures and computer games – make sure you spend plenty of time in here (You can fill a box with Mr. Potato Head body and parts for one)
Finally but the most important is the World of Disney the largest Disney character merchandise store in the World. It is very easy to get separated and/or lost in the store so keep a close eye on the children. Each of the areas has its own theme and you can spend literally hours in here.
