While there are so many amazing attractions to choose from at Walt Disney World like Space Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, “it’s a small world” and Expedition Everest, there are many other ways to have fun at “The Most Magical Place on Earth”.

The Orlando, Florida Resort also has many shopping centers for Guests to choose from which offer clothes, pins, plates, cups, and everything in between. There are so many great stores to get your Disney merchandise fix from like the Emporium on Main Street U.S.A. in Magic Kingdom or any of the stores in Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, Disney Springs, or EPCOT.

And speaking of EPCOT, one store recently reopened in the Park after an extended closure.
