This year’s winning costume was a very realistic Matterhorn Abominable Snowman – amazing, isn’t it?

Everyone can use a park map when it comes to planning out their day at Magic Kingdom Park, and in today’s #DisneySide Doodle, Captain Hook is no exception. It looks like that bright, shiny castle has caught his attention. Hopefully this cranky crook isn’t up to something.

Back to School Shopping Ideas from Downtown Disney at Walt Disney World Resort

posted on August 13th, 2015 by Steven Miller, Merchandise Communications Manager

As summer is quickly fading into fall, it’s time for back to school shopping. I can’t believe my children will return to school in just a couple of weeks. I recently spent a morning at Downtown Disney in Walt Disney World Resort searching for back to school shopping ideas. Here is a quick look at some of the items I found for those who want to add a splash of Disney to their backpacks.

BTSM38872

World of Disney and Mickey’s Fun Finds at Downtown Disney Marketplace both offered assortments of pens, pencils and other cool school tools. I liked the colorful Mickey Mouse-inspired pens and the zipper cases are something I wish I had growing up.

I found some fun apparel items for girls in the Zoey & Pickles boutique inside the Marketplace Co-Op at Downtown Disney Marketplace. They also carried a sweet backpack decorated with images of Mickey Mouse-shaped candies.

Once Upon a Toy store has a new shirt featuring “Miles from Tomorrowland,” the hit Disney Junior animated series.

At Downtown Disney West Side, D-Street had some Oswald the Lucky Rabbit t-shirts, while the Super Hero Headquarters shop carried plenty of apparel options for super heroes of all ages.

Finally, I visited Curl by Sammy Duvall where I found a small assortment of the popular Disney Vans shoes along with clothing and accessories for girls and boys. Next door, Fit2Run, The Runner’s Superstore, has a perfect selection of athletic footwear and more. Both of these shops now open at 10:00 a.m. daily in Downtown Disney West Side.

Here’s a quick shopping tip I learned after my visit – all Downtown Disney shops now open at 10:00 a.m. which includes Downtown Disney West Side. This is a great time to visit as parking is usually plentiful and it’s easier to get in and out of shops.
