Artisan handmade treasures galore in locations at Disney Springs, Magic Kingdom and EPCOT. I’ve become a huge fan of their products, which ranges from jewellery to picture frames to figurines that will blow your mind.

We’re drawn to the big-ticket items, but sometimes it’s worth asking help from the staff because they’ve probably got your favorite character represented somewhere in their collection! Arribas Bros is on Shop Disney!

This shop with locations in the Magic Kingdom, Disney Springs, EPCOT and hidden spots in the Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios is more than a Fine Art gallery.

You’re able to find everything from a print to knick-knacks for your office and even hand-drawn pieces from highly skilled Disney artists. Unique fun, prices from reasonable to “really?!”, and everything in between.

The short walk across the street from Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is worth the trip, especially when you have a chance to get merchandise that no one in your circle would have in their collection.

From golf shirts to hats, the opportunity to add unique Disney Golf merchandise to your suitcase will be worth the 5-minute walk.

The merchandise is exclusive to the golf courses and can be ordered through the online website if you need an extra shirt that you forgot to grab.


This resort gift shop has some serious style. You could wind up with anything from Polynesian style clothing to fun Disney-inspired co-branded merch.

PLUS…shopping at Disney World is always better when you have a Dole Whip location within 25 steps!

Although not unique to the general population, it’s important to recognize that brands that have locations in Disney World theme parks typically have a special line or product offering that would classify as being “unique”.

Pandora is found at the Magic Kingdom (Uptown Jewellers) and Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Legends of Hollywood). You can also find the Disney Collection on


This Beauty and the Beast boutique in the Magic Kingdom encompasses theming, design, apparel, art and so much more.

The best (of course) is that they are constantly adding new merchandise for probably one of my favorite Disney movies of all time!

Know someone who needs Coca-Cola to survive? Take them to the store that is filled with “here and now” experiences (like the meet & greet with the Polar Bear AND the International Coke Flight) and the stuff that you just need in your home (like the Coke crates or Canimals, which are handcrafted pieces of art designed from Coke cans).

The Coca-Cola Store is definitely a ‘Must See’ for unique gifts within Disney Springs!

I know I know – the largest Disney store in the world doesn’t have unique gifts! Or do they? I think that when you’re looking for a starting point and ending spot for your vacation, the largest is definitely a good place to know about.

I’ve found exclusive merchandise, hidden gems that may be sold out from smaller locations and everything from home accessories to apparel to gifts to office stuff…it’s all under one roof and I’d be remise to not include it on the list.

The retail game of Disney Springs has been taken to a whole new level, so be sure to check out the official website to know what’s around. With the ever-changing constantly evolving lineup, it’s impossible for me to keep on top of every single location because between when you read this article and when you step onto property…things will have changed. Just look out for brands like:

  • Build-a-Dino @ T-Rex (Plush Toys)
  • Happy Hound Kiosk (Stuff for your Dog)
  • The Marketplace Co-Op (Everything from art to apparel to fun randomness!)
