    I love shopping and was wondering if you have any recommendations on the best places to get souvenirs? Any good deals anywhere?

    A girl from my own heart! I also love shopping and have several recommendations.

    First, make sure to visit Downtown Disney for the BEST shops in all of Walt Disney World. They have the largest character merchandise store in Disney - World of Disney. You can get all of  your souvenirs here, from a photo album, scrapbook, Disney pins, plush toys, dinnerware, cups, plates, snacks and more! 

    I also love Once Upon a Toy because they have a great potato bar. No, not a baked potato bar, a Mr. Potato Head bar! You can pick out parts to make your own customized Mr. Potato Head! The parts go beyond just ears, eyes and nose, they have Mickey Mouse pretzels, Mickey Mouse Ice Cream and special Walt Disney World themed parts.

    You also don't want to miss making your own special treat at Goofy's Candy Company. I love the marshmallow dipped in chocolate, covered in Reese Pieces and drizzled in white chocolate.

    Disney's Days of Christmas has every Christmas ornament, accessory, tree topper and decoration you can find. 

    There are also nearby outlet malls. I love the Disney Character Warehouse at the Orlando Premium Outlets. I can get Disney merchandise for a great rate here! 

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
