As a travel agent, I am traveling all of the time. Last year, I spent 199 days at Disney World. That is a lot of days with Mickey Mouse! One of my favorite things to do at the Disney Resorts, Downtown Disney, and the Disney Theme Parks is shopping. I love the special event merchandise, Disney Parks merchandise, and even the specialty country merchandise around the World Showcase at Epcot. This is always something new and fun to purchase!
Since shopping is such a passion of mine, we love to share this knowledge to our guests visiting Disney World and Orlando. One of the free perks we offer to all of our guests is the Orlando Magicard. The Orlando Magicard is a discount card worth hundreds of dollars in savings on dining, recreation, and SHOPPING. This discount card is free for all of our guests. We mail the Orlando Magicards to our guests with their final package documents, to help them save additional money during your vacation.
Besides the Orlando Magicard, we are here to help our guests find those hidden deals, specialty shops, and best outlets during an Orlando vacation. One of my favorite secrets is the merchandise you find at the Disney Theme Parks, you can often find this same type merchandise at discounts from 40-75% off. You just have to drive a few minutes up the road for significant savings on the same type merchandise you find at the parks.
If you are a true Disney fan and want actual items from the parks, like a sign from the Dole Whip stand or a piece of Magic Kingdom history, do you know where to go? Since we are a local travel agency with many past Disney Cast Members we know all of these secret locations to get real pieces of the Disney Resorts and Theme Parks. You can shop are these fun warehouses with thousands of pieces of Disney history at your fingertips. How fun would it be to have a souvenir piece from your favorite ride at Disney’s Hollywood Studios?
We also know what stores are the best for your family. With kids purchasing souvenirs (on a limited budget), princess costumes for a breakfast with Cinderella, or a funky clothing store for your teenager. We offer our guests guidance, so shopping at Disney World is just as much fun as their visit with Mickey Mouse.
