What better place to shop for presents is there than Walt Disney World?
As we approach the holiday season at Disney World, many Guests are buying their last-minute gifts while on property. Walt Disney World has so many specialty shops and amazing storefronts for Guests to choose from, offering seemingly limitless unique and exclusive merchandise options for Disney fans. At Disney Springs, the shopping gets even more intense as Guests are surrounded by an immense selection of themed shops and boutiques.
By far, one of the most popular places to shop in Disney Springs is World of Disney, one of the biggest retailers of Disney merchandise in the entire world. Here Guests can find Disney shirts, stuffed animals, cups, bags, plates, pins, and all sorts of Disney-fied things. But since the holidays are just around the corner, more and more Guests have been piling into this megastore to grab those last-minute gifts. One user on TikTok posted a video capturing just how crazy the store got over the weekend. User Beautynbeastdw (@beautynbeastdw) filmed the crowds as seen below:
As you can see in the video, Guests are practically lined out the door waiting to check out. While this is quite shocking, it is not entirely surprising as the holidays always mark a busy time for Walt Disney World. And now, with the Resort celebrating its 50th anniversary, it makes perfect sense that the crowds would reach insane levels.
