Check out this shopping list: Almonds, cranberry, vanilla, oatmeal, honey, and sea salt. No, we’re not making cookies – those are just some of the natural ingredients used to create the fresh-cut soaps available at Basin, the bath and beauty shop at Downtown Disney at Walt Disney World Resort.

Basin recently reopened after a refresh that included the addition of an oversized sink where as many as eight guests can simultaneously try out the all-natural salt body scrubs. The new Basin centerpiece is topped with a Mickey Mouse that was carved from a 250-pound block of soap.

Here’s a tour through the refreshed location:


  • Absolutely love this store! It’s my favorite in Downtown Disney. We visit every summer on our annual trip, and my daughter and I stock up on several bars of soap. My favorites are definitely the ones with the Mickey ears. Can’t wait to visit the new shop in 4 months!

  • Oh my gosh, my 6yr old daughter and I LOVE this place. We always stop here when we take a trip to Disney World. My daughter really enjoys mixing her own bath salts and I always make sure I check out the salt scrubs. Can’t wait to see the new store when we head back to Disney World next week! Yeah!

  • LOVE all of the different scents ! So can not wait to get a hold of the soap with the Mickey ears in them! OMG how cute ! Also love the fact that product is made in the USA !!

    • It’s so cute that I don’t know if I could ever use it up. :)

  • I love it! Unfortunately I have to wait 16-18 months before we’re back in Disney. Basin will be on my list of places to shop!

  • I am so jealous!!! I loved going to the basin store in Anaheim. Hope it comes back to California soon.

  • Any dermatologists back up your products? I have very sensitive allergies.

  • This is great. How do the make your own soy candles work? Im coming down in 3 days and would love to do that!

  • @Brian, they were about a year or two ago and left.

  • So glad you reopened. Have missed our bath bombs the last trips to downtown

    • Bath bombs are GREAT.

  • Is their plans to bring this buissnes to DLR? It would a great addition to Downtown Disney CA.
