    Cathy, thanks for the great ideas for souvenirs! R the resort gift shops easy to get to (Contemp, Poly, Ft. Wilderness, AK, GF) in order to get small tokens from each? You all are SO great! Thanks again.

    Hi, Jennifer!   When the topic of shopping comes up, I am right there and glad to help!

    Getting to some resort gift shops will be fairly easy.   When at the Magic Kingdom, you can hop on the resort monorail and stop at the Contemporary, Polynesian, and Grand Floridian.   From Epcot, you can exit through the International Gateway and walk to the Yacht Club, Beach Club, and the Boardwalk.   From Port Orleans Riverside, you can walk to the French Quarter, and from Downtown Disney you can walk to Saratoga Springs.    You can also walk between the All-Star Resorts.

    OK, that said, this will take up some serious time visiting all these resorts (and I didn't mention resorts that will be reachable by bus only:   Animal Kingdom Lodge, Caribbean Beach, etc.)   I suggest hitting just a few resorts, then saving the others for your next trip.  (Hey, there's a perfect excuse for your next trip - you need to do more SHOPPING!)

    Speaking of shopping, make sure to stop by the gift shops in the Contemporary.  I always have good luck at these shops and find a great selection of merchandise.   Some people have "must see" attractions, I have "must see" gift shops!    Have fun!
