    Hello again to Stacey, my Disney Shopping Pal!    OK, here is the scoop on Disney shopping.   It is endless!  From your basic Mickey T-shirts on Main Street to African Art in Animal Kingdom Lodge, you can really shop til you drop in WDW.    I know how you feel, so many stores, so little time!   But there is a lot of magic out there, too, so take some time OUT of the stores, too!    Here are some shopping tips for you:

    -As hard as it may seem, avoid the shops first thing in the morning.  Use this valuable time to hit some major attractions before lines get too long.

    -Shop in the heat of the afternoon.  This is a great way to get out of the sun and into air conditioning.

    -If you are staying at a Disney Resort, have your purchases shipped back to your resort so you are not stuck carrying  bags all day long.

    -Don't do all your shopping in the theme parks.  Many resorts carry unique items you will not find elsewhere.

    -Prices should be the same wherever you go in Disney, so no need to hold out to find a better price on the same item.

    -If you are debating on a certain item, do not buy it, then get home and wish you bought it, simply call WDW Merchandise at (407)363-6200.   Have as much information as possible on the item:  price, location, size, color, etc.   The item can be shipped directly to you if they are able to locate it.  (shipping charges will apply.)

    Enjoy your WDW Shopping Spree with your princesses!
