    I know there are stores all over Disney but we have never been to Downtown Disney. I heard there is also shops at some of the other resorts. Where are the best places to shop? Will one bus take us there? We are going for our 2nd time May 18-24th. Thanks

    Downtown Disney has by far the biggest concentration of stores on Disney property. There is the gigantic World of Disney store, Once Upon a Toy, the Lego Store, a beauty products boutique, a pin trading station, a large candy store ... and that's just the beginning. If it's shopping you want, then that's where you should go. There are buses that run from all the resorts and theme parks to Downtown Disney about every 20 minutes.

    All the resorts do have shops in their lobbies. Most of them just offer basic travel necessities and Disney themed merchandise, with a few unique twists for each resort. For example, there are African crafts sold in the the gift shop at the Animal Kingdom Lodge and Lincoln Logs sold at the Wilderness Lodge. The Grand Floridian does have a few more upscale stores that sell clothing and bath products. For example, the women's clothing store typically carries some Lilly Pulitzer brand outfits. These tend to be quite expensive. 

    The largest stores in the theme parks are Mouse Gear in Epcot  and the Emporium on Main Street in the Magic Kingdom (really most of the left side of Main Street as you walk toward the Castle).
