Best Gi t Shop: Alex & Ani

WDW Magazine - - Content - BY JEREMY LEICHTENBERG

When I think of Walt Dis­ney World, three things come to mind: at­trac­tions, food, and shop­ping. There are enough of all three to keep you busy for many trips with­out hav­ing re­peats. I al­ways try to ven­ture into new re­tail stores while I am en­gulfed in my Dis­ney frame of mind.

Dis­ney Springs has had a ma­jor over­haul in re­cent years. I had two trips to WDW while there was mas­sive build­ing and con­struc­tion go­ing on, and at times, it gave me a headache even to think about head­ing to Dis­ney Springs to check out any of the new re­tail stores. Just a few short weeks ago, we found our­selves back at Dis­ney Springs, and this time, with far less walls and con­struc­tion sur­round­ing us.

My wife is as much in love with Dis­ney as I am. She gets a lit­tle spoiled when it comes to Dis­ney. Spa treat­ments, new clothes, jew­elry—you name it! The list can go on for a lot longer than this ar­ti­cle will. One of her fa­vorite things to look at and pur­chase are Alex and Ani bracelets. Plus, the prices are very af­ford­able at around $40, mak­ing it one of the lesser ex­pen­sive forms of sou­venirs she has come to en­joy as of late.

To me, they look like a bracelet, with a char­ac­ter charm. Let’s face it, to al­most ev­ery guy, that's ex­actly what they are. I even made the mis­take of call­ing it a charm bracelet when we were wan­der­ing through the ALEX AND ANI store in Dis­ney Springs: Town Cen­ter. Oops! I was

po­litely cor­rected. They like to say that they bring “Pos­i­tive En­ergy.” From the way they are man­u­fac­tured, to the way they are sold, they are all about Pos­i­tive En­ergy, and pro­duc­ing eco-friendly jew­elry.

There are many places through­out Walt Dis­ney World, and even Dis­ney Springs, to buy the Dis­ney ALEX AND ANI wire charm ban­gles, but at the store in Town Cen­ter, they also fea­ture other prod­ucts such as rings, ear­rings, and neck­laces, mak­ing this store quite unique. Of­fer­ing many of the Dis­ney ones we have come to love, and even quite the se­lec­tion of non-dis­ney jew­elry for any fash­ion­ista in your life.

Whether its a ban­gle with your fa­vorite Dis­ney char­ac­ter for your sig­nif­i­cant other, or a beaded wrap for the lit­tle princess in your life, you are sure to find a great sou­venir from your ad­ven­ture to the Dis­ney Springs: Town Cen­ter ALEX AND ANI store!
