    Hello! Is there any way to purchase resort specific items seen in the hotel gift shop? We are regretting not purchasing clothing items we saw on our last trip. They are not available online. Thank you.

    Welcome to planDisney Cassandra. Thanks for stopping by with your question. 

    Oh, those days when you are in between those Walt Disney World vacations always seem light-years away. When the comforts of your Disney Resorts Collection Hotel stay are only a memory. During one of my last stays at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort - Riverside we stopped by the lobby almost daily after our breakfast. On our first day, I had the idea of getting a resort magnet for my Disney Themed bathroom. I kept pushing it off and amidst the whirlwind of checking out and getting my children those last-minute travel snacks I forgot about my magnet. Unfortunately, there is no way to purchase these unless you are inside the location that is selling them. One idea is if you have any friends or family that live in the area they could visit the resort to pick up that coveted item. Maybe another family that saw your trip picture on social media is visiting that same resort. When you purchase an item or times from the resorts and select retail locations you can have Disney ship it directly to your home instead of taking up precious luggage space. With all the modern technology funds can be transferred in a heartbeat. If you have someone trustworthy and just so happens to be in the area why not take a chance? 

    Cassandra, I believe in magic and sometimes I visit stores hoping for items to magically appear. When I can’t make it to the parks I find the closest Disney store. I live in New Jersey and am lucky enough to live within an hour and a half of two Disney stores. One is in Times Square in New York City, and the other is the Jersey Gardens Mall in New Jersey. If you are feeling lucky, or just want to take a day trip. While it is no Emporium on Main Street U.S.A., you can make some purchases that may remind you of your vacation. From your home state, you can visit both of these locations in one day and still be home for dinner. The last and final option I could recommend if you haven’t already done so is to book another visit for next year and you can stay at the same resort or another on your list. There are plenty of wonderful places to choose from. Visit the Vacation Planning Page when you are ready to get started for your next visit. 

    Visit us again at planDisney.com. I hope you can find that traveler whose paths cross your item. They can ship it to your home directly from the store. Good luck!

    Have a magical day,

    Jeremy A.
