Walt Disney World is expensive, but your souvenirs do not have to be! Merchandise at the official Disney Character Premier outlet changes regularly and they may not have the newest items, but they do have a wide variety to choose from. Typical merchandise consists of clothing, plush, toys, posters, key chains, trading pins, coloring books, jewelry, watches, candy from Pluto’s Candy Co., etc. Many times, they have discounted/discontinued Disney merchandise so keep in mind, you may not find exactly what you are seeking.
You can also purchase Walt Disney World theme park tickets there which can save time since the ticket lines can be rather long in the mornings. No, the ticket prices are not discounted.
I know from experience that they sell out of good stuff fairly quickly, so if you see something good grab it. The other day I purchased my son a Disney/Pixar Cars Legos Duplo set for $9.99 (70% off retail price). This weekend it was no longer there, but they did have a Toy Story 3 set for a really great price. Also, take a peek at the counters behind the registers because they usually keep more expensive and exclusive merchandise there.
The Disney Outlets in Orlando, Florida can be found at Orlando Premium Outlets Vineland Avenue and Orlando Premium Outlets International Drive. Also, if you need a break from the theme parks, the Premium outlets are a great place to spend a day of shopping! But, be prepared…they can be just as busy as the parks!
