Shopping at Disney World in Orlando Florida may take second stage to all the rides, rollercoaster and shows, but that doesn’t mean the resort is lacking on the retail side of things. In fact, you could probably spend a whole day just walking around the shops. You wouldn't even need a day-pass as they're in areas that are classed as separate from the theme parks and are free to access.

    Most shopping options at Disney World come in the form of small boutiques and specialist stores, selling everything from generic branded souvenirs to one-of-a-kind pieces of art. You’ll find plenty of shops, restaurants, and cafés inside theme parks like Magic Kingdom and Epcot. Our quick roundup below has focused on the main areas to head to when you’re in the mood for some Disney World shopping.

    The World of Disney store is where you’ll find almost anything Disney-related, be it gifts, souvenirs, clothing, accessories or a cute pair of giant Mickey ears. The impressive shop façade looks like something straight from a movie set, and once inside you’ll discover 12 different rooms filled with everything Disney, from all the latest blockbuster hits to old-time favorites reminding you of your childhood.

    Disney Marketplace Co-Op

    Located right next to Disney Springs, the Marketplace Co-Op features several shops next to the water, most of which are under the cover of a big roof. The emphasis here really is on the boutique stores selling niche and specialist items (which don’t usually come cheap). Head to Arribas Brothers for some funky art and collectables, Basin for themed gifts and housewares, Disney Design-a-Tee to make your own shirt, Disney’s Days of Christmas if it’s near that time of year again or get a sugar rush at Goofy’s Candy Company. No day-tickets are required for this area as it’s not part of one of Disney Resort’s designated theme parks.

    Agrabah Bazaar

    This quirky Aladdin’s-themed market is lots of fun, with a modest range of vendors and boutique stores both inside and out. The bazaar-style area is bright and awash with color, and is particularly impressive when lit up after dark, so have your cameras (and credit cards) ready. Trinkets, accessories, artwork, fashion, souvenirs and homeware are all available. Agrabah Bazaar is located at Adventureland, inside Disney’s Magic Kingdom, which means a day-pass is required for you to access the market.

    Location: Adventureland, Magic Kingdom Park, 1180 Seven Seas Dr, Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830, USA

    Open: Daily from 8.30 am to 9 pm (hours may vary)

    The Lake Buena Vista Factory Stores is an open-air mall on the other side of International Drive. There are around 50 outlet stores offering year-round discounts of 20-70% on genuine designer brands including Reebok, Crocs, Calvin Klein, Justice, Tommy Hilfiger, Timberland, Fossil, and Nike. Don’t forget that there's another, even larger, Premium Outlet Store on International Drive a little closer to the Orlando Downtown.
