Top Disney World Shopping Destinations

One of my favorite activities at Walt Disney World actually has nothing to do with standing in a line and doing…anything. I’m more likely to be found strolling through the aisles of a store looking for hidden gems to add to my collection, which means that I’ve become a self-made Disney World shopping fan!

If only The Emporium on Main Street USA offered Genie+!

Art of Disney

Gotta start out strong, as my must-see store is also a hidden gem amongst Disney World travellers, and that’s the Art of Disney. I’ve got two articles on the stores, as there’s one in each park and they carry really cool merchandise…so check out the Best Things to Buy at the Art of Disney and The Best Art of Disney Store in Walt Disney World

When we think about The Best Places to Buy Unique Gifts in Disney World, one of the brands that comes to mind is Arribas Brothers and all their incredible hand-blown glass creations. But, what’s awesome is that they are actually sold in multiple stores at Disney World!

  • Arribas Brothers at Disney Springs
  • Crystal Arts at the Magic Kingdom
  • Kunstarbeit in Kristall at the Germany Pavilion @ EPCOT
  • Mexico Pavilion @ EPCOT

They’re also found at ShopDisney, so just in case you’re looking for that $37,500 fully-sculptured limited edition Cinderella Castle with 28,255 Swarovski crystal stones….you can get it online! 😉

Bonjour Gifts

The Beauty & The Beast themed shoppe in New Fantasyland, directly beside Gaston’s Tavern (home of LeFou’s Brew), is such a fun store to check out. From hidden gems in the design to the Pin Trading board…it’s a place that we tend to buy stuff from each trip!
