BEST GIFT SHOP
MARKETPLACE FUN FINDS
At WDW, round every corner, near every ride, there seems to be a gift shop! While it may appear that nearly all the gift shops sell the same items, there are many gift shops that carry a little more specialty items. Marketplace Fun Finds in Disney Springs has a few specialty items, along with a little bit of the "normal gift shop" items. Walking in, you notice big signs, some even labeled with the price of that section clearly on the wall. It is the only Disney gift shop that I have been in, that clearly has prices of that section for all to see. And best of all, many of the items are on SALE!
Located near Earl of Sandwich and Disney's Days of Christmas, in the Marketplace section of Disney Springs, Marketplace Fun Finds has its own unique setting. While the store may not be big compared to some that surround it, the bright colors of the store help set it apart.
Disney Springs can be a busy place with all the gift shops and restaurants. Typically, we find that Fun Finds is a little less crowded than some of its nearby gift shops, which makes shopping a little more enjoyable, and a lot easier.
Marketplace Fun Finds can be exactly that, fun! At first glance it appears to be the same gift shop you have been in 5 times on your trip already. Yes, they have the same stuffed Mickey that the other gift shops have, but do the other gift shops have Mystery Bags?
Marketplace Fun Finds also has a variety of other merchandise. They have your cups and plates. Pens, markers and coloring kits. Having a good variety of merchandise is great, but the prices in here are even better! While most of your typical gift shops do carry higher prices items, in Fun Finds, nearly all of their merchandise is under $25. Sometimes you’ll find last season’s or overstocked items for a big discount too!
It's a great store to let your kids pick something out without having to tell them that their choice is to expensive! You can also find discounted merchandise here as well. The selection does vary of discounted stuff each time you visit.
We have many gift shops that are a must for us, such as Once Upon a Toy, or Disney’s Days of Christmas. We always make sure we stop into Marketplace Fun Finds to see if we can find any unique items, have some fun, save a little, and not be too crowded while we shop. Check it out on your next trip!
