Shopping at Walt Disney World can be a great past time for retreating from the crowds, cooling off between rides, or just picking out a great souvenir to bring home.
It's entirely possible to spend a lot of time wandering from shop to shop as there are so many in each park. Disney Springs alone could take an entire afternoon exploring. Here are a few spots I checked out on my last trip that had some great merchandise worth exploring.
If you've never checked out The Marketplace Co-Op, you must stop in on your next visit to Disney Springs! This is a huge retail emporium featuring a variety of brands and special events featuring art, apparel, home decor and so much more.
The Disney Cruise Line Pop-Up Shop had a great selection of merchandise like this cute purse, lots of clothing and even luggage for your next cruise! The Dress Shop on Cherry Tree Lane has beautiful dresses like this one seen on display. Also check out Disney Tails where you might even find some matching apparel for you and your pup!
Browsing around the Co op is a great way to pass the time before your dinner reservation in Disney Springs.
Another area I love to shop in is Hollywood Studios. This is where you can find all the greatest Star Wars gear.
The unique items like the pilot helmets make for a great holiday gift for your favorite Star Wars fan. There were also fun items like this adorable "The Child" mug and entire Star Wars outfits perfect for exploring Galaxy's Edge.
There are so many great shopping spots all around DisneyWorld. What is your favorite item that you brought home from Disney? Do you have a favorite shopping spot?

I love helping people find the perfect destination for their vacation and sharing all of my favorite tips and tricks with them.
Growing up, my family made it a priority to take a trip each year to somewhere we had never been. It wasn’t always to a far away, exotic location. Sometimes it was just a new place to check out in our own state. This is what fostered my love for travel and helping people find new places to enjoy.
One of my favorite reasons to travel is to try new food and snacks! While it is so hard not to just grab my usual treats I am so glad I tried new thing in my last visit.
First up is the Snacking Sandwich Cookie at Fairfax Fare last located on Sunset Boulevard.
This snack is the perfect way to satisfy your sweet tooth and hold you over until your next meal. I promise this treat will not disappoint.
Second is the Grilled Cheese and Tomato soup dipped at Andy's Lunchbox in Toy Story Land. This isn't new and many other highly recommend it but it was my first to having it and it is always worth a mention.
Lastly, it the Iced Round-Up Latte from the Joffery’s stand just before Toy Story Land. It's not only my favorite but also everyone's in my family. I am not a coffee drinker but this latte hits the spot.

I have always loved traveling. I believe that creating memories from travel experiences makes us richer. I have been working with RTR since 2019 and it us a passion I never thought of pursuing, but I am so glad I took a leap into this industry. It is an honor to be able to serve others and make them richer through travel too.
