    Hello! We just became brand new DVC members last week (wooo!!!) and will be visiting WDW in just over a week! We would love to purchase some DVC merchandise while there. Are there any locations within WDW that sell DVC specific merchandise? Thanks!

    Hey there, Krystyna! Welcome to planDisney and let me offer you a warm Welcome Home, neighbor! I am so happy that you've stopped by with your question, and I couldn't be more excited to be chatting with a new fellow Disney Vacation Club Member! Woohoo! Congratulations, my friend! 

    Did someone say DVC merchandise?! You have come to the right place, Krystyna, because I am always on the hunt for the latest and greatest DVC merchandise, and I have been since I became a Member in 2015. I vividly remember our first trip to Walt Disney World Resort after becoming Members, and I am SO excited for you to experience that feeling in just days! The Disney magic just seems to hit differently once you know you're a Member of the magical Club, and buying your first DVC item and merchandise from your Home Resort is such an amazing feeling. I could not be happier for you. Now, let's chat about a very important topic for any DVC Member ... Shopping!

    I always tend to find the best and most variety of DVC merchandise at the gift shops in DVC Resorts that exclusively have DVC accommodations, such as Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa, Disney's Old Key West Resort, Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village, and Disney's Riviera Resort. If you aren't staying at one of these Resorts on your upcoming trip, I recommend taking a break from your EPCOT day to hop the Skyliner over to the Riviera to shop at La Boutique. Not only is it super easy and convenient to get there, but this is one of my favorite places to shop for DVC merchandise. Recently, I have gone gaga over a new DVC Loungefly backpack and Dooney & Bourke handbags (I need them all!), and I have also seen the cutest Minnie ears, sweaters, spirit jerseys, shirts, sweatshirts, mugs, tumblers, koozies, hats, blankets, picture frames, board games, and more. Make sure that you have your new digital DVC Membership Card downloaded from the My Disney Experience app into your mobile device's digital wallet, because with all of the adorable merchandise you're going to need, you'll want to take advantage of that DVC discount!

    I must also recommend shopping for DVC merchandise on shopDisney! My very favorite items are coffee mugs for each of my Home Resorts, personalized with the year we became Members. These are so special to me and bring me joy every morning. I'm so happy for you to feel that same joy!

    Krystyna, I hope this was helpful, and I hope you have an unforgettable first vacation as a DVC Member. I hope it is pixie-dusted and pure magic! Please stop by any time with any vacation planning or DVC questions you may have. In the beginning, I had a ton of questions, so, just ask me! You've got a friend in me! I am wishing you a lifetime of magical memories with your most magical Membership. Your only regret will be not joining sooner!

    Welcome Home and I hope to see ya real soon,

    Mandy
