    I would like to know if there is a shop to buy the toy of Woody from Toy Story at Animal Kingdom, or I need to go to the Toy Story Land to buy this character.

    Hey howdy hey, Gabriele!  

    You’ve got a friend in planDisney, and I’m so glad you saddled over our way to ask this important question about shopping at the Walt Disney World Resort. I know how critical it can be to find the exact toy at the right time on vacation, and I’m happy to help you plan your upcoming trip during this magical holiday season!

    While it’s intuitive to envision specifically themed shops at each of the four theme parks displaying toys and Disney merchandise suited best to that area’s theme, there are also key shops in each park that house a wide variety of merchandise featuring all our favorite friends. I was recently at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and I saw toys and characters from many films (including Pixar’s Toy Story) spanning many decades of fun and memories on display. I think you’ll have the best luck finding our pal Woody at either Island Mercantile or Discovery Trading Company; both are large shops featured on either side of the main pathway as you approach the Tree of Life from the theme park entrance. Please be sure to ask a Cast Member in the shop if you’re in a hurry or need further assistance locating this toy.

    Here are some other locations where you should have great success in rounding up our pal Woody, that aren’t inside Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios:  

    There are specialty Disney shops selling authentic Walt Disney World Resort merchandise within the Orlando International Airport as you enter the terminal for baggage claim and ground transportation, if you’d like to start your vacation with a special new friend from Andy’s collection. You may also wish to purchase the exact item on shopDisney before your trip, so be sure to take a look there as well.

    I know how exciting it can be to connect with the exact toy you have in mind, either for you or for a loved one you’re gifting it to. I’m certain you’ll be able to find this special friend Woody at one of these shops in Disney’s Animal Kingdom or elsewhere nearby on your travels, without having to go to infinity and beyond. 

    I’m wishing you the most magical and special holiday visit, ever Gabriele! Please let us know if there’s anything else we can help with to put your mind at ease or help you make the most of this trip.

    Wishing you the rootin'-est, tootin'-est of holiday vacations,
