Why Don’t Disney Resorts Sell This Merchandise?

Each Disney resort has its own gift shop. These shops carry souvenirs, vacation essentials, items with the resort’s logo, and some items that match the resort’s theme. But, they don’t carry everything! We’ve gathered together a list of items we would love to see some of the resorts sell!

Wilderness Lodge Mercantile

These are items that match the resort’s themes, would make fun souvenirs, and might even prove useful during your stay at the resort.

Disney’s Wilderness Lodge Resort

The Wilderness Lodge should sell play tents! How cool would it be for your kids (OK, even you) to spend the night in the “wilderness” of your room under a starry sky?

Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort

The Polynesian is all about kicking back, having fun, feeling the spirit of Aloha — and eating Dole Whips at the Pineapple Lanai! What better way to remember your relaxed vacation vibe when you get home than a fun tropical pillow!

Disney’s Beach Club Resort

A visit to beach is never complete without searching for driftwood or sea glass that washes ashore. Since you can’t do that on the Beach Club‘s man-made beach, how about if they sold driftwood art or sea glass jewelry as a reminder of your trip to the “beach”?

Disney’s All Star Sports Resort

No visit to All Star Sports is complete without a walk around the resort’s larger-than-life football field and basketball court looking for your team’s pennant. Support your team with a fun Bluetooth speaker that they should be selling at Sport Goofy Gift and Sundries.

Disney’s Port Orleans’ Resorts

Spend some time relaxing on the shores of the Sassagoula River in your new pop-up hammock that you should be able to buy in either Port Orleans French Quarter or Port Orleans Riverside‘s shops.

Disney’s Art of Animation Resort

For the inevitable rainy day — wouldn’t it be great if you could pick up a craft kit for your kid to complete in the room (or at home)? Imagine if kids could decorate their race car by modeling it after Lightning McQueen sitting outside the Wheel Well Hotel in the Cars section of Art of Animation.

Future Star Wars Resort

Here’s a suggestion for the future Star Wars Resort’s gift shop! The Star Wars fans on our team are hoping Disney has this Porg Lamp in the gift shop because they NEED this in their homes NOW!
