I love to shop when I’m at Disney, not just for gifts to bring home for family and friends, but also for items for us to keep. There are so many awesome shops in Walt Disney World and these are my 10 favourites:
10 – Basin at Disney Springs. I love the range of soaps and bath bombs that you can buy here and they smell divine!
9 – Arribas Brothers at Disney Springs. I love to just wander around in here and look at all the stunning crystal and glasswork.
8 – Uptown Jewelers on Main St. in the Magic Kingdom. If you love Pandora or handbags (or both) this is the shop for you!
7 – Mitsukoshi Department Store in The World Showcase at Epcot. This shop is awesome! Based in Japan in The World Showcase, this is the place to buy Hello Kitty and Pokemon items as well as all sorts of Japanese items. I love the kimonos that are on display at the very back of the store and it’s always fun to Pick A Pearl in here too.
6 – The Art Of Disney at Disney Springs. There is a huge selection of Disney artwork available here and Disney artists make special appearances here. This store is worth a look even if you’re not planning on purchasing anything.
5 – The Lego Store at Disney Springs. If you like Lego then this is the store for you! You may need a bigger suitcase to fit all those Lego boxes in!
4 – MouseGear at Epcot. I often find items here that I have seen in the parks but can’t find anywhere else. It’s impossible to walk through the ‘ears’ section without trying a few on!
3 – The Emporium on Main St in the Magic Kingdom. I could spend hours wandering around this store. This is a great place to pick up some souvenirs. (If you don’t want to carry your purchases around all day you can ask for them to be sent to Guest Services at the front of the park where you can collect them later in the day.)
2 – 365 Days of Christmas at Disney Springs. Disney + Christmas = Heaven! This is the place to buy all things Christmas, including hanging ornaments and tree skirts.
1 – World Of Disney at Disney Springs. This is the largest Disney Store in the world and you can buy pretty much everything here! This is so much more than just a shopping experience – be sure to look all around you and up at the ceilings, there’s things to see everywhere you look! (Look out for Stitch on your way in!)
