Seven Things You Might Not Know You Can Buy in Disney Springs

You already know you can find tee shirts, pens, magnets, toys, and other classic souvenirs in Disney Springs, but with the expansion of the dining, entertainment, and shopping district over the past several years, there’s a lot more on the shelves than you might think. We’re taking a look at eight things you’d never think you could buy in Disney Springs.

Shopping at Disney Springs

1. Allergy-Free Breads/Pastries 

Food allergies can be very troublesome for people, especially when it limits their ability to eat certain kinds of foods they’d otherwise love. And on vacation? It’s even more of a bummer!

That’s why when Erin McKenna opened her first bakery in New York City in 2005, one of her passions was to “create a bakery free of harmful ingredients.” And the pastry chef has brought this approach to Erin McKenna Bakery NYC in Disney Springs, too! Her diverse offerings of breads, rolls, cupcakes, cookies, and more are made with carefully selected ingredients to meet the needs of vegan, kosher, allergy-sensitive, and health-minded customers.

This vegan lemon cake is but one example of Erin’s many allergy-friendly baked goods.

Disney Springs’ branch of Erin’s bakery maintains her brand’s steadfast dedication to serving delicious breads and pastries that everyone can enjoy regardless of dietary restrictions or preferences. Menu items are free of refined sugar, gluten, wheat, soy, dairy, and egg, and yet they hit all the right bakery notes.

2. Oyster Pearls

Sure, pearls are common in jewelry, but how many places let you take the pearl fresh straight from the shell? At Pearl Factory, you get to choose from a wide selection of oysters, and then you tap and open the shell to discover the surprise pearl inside just for you! This adds an element of curiosity to the experience, as you get to be a part of the process. And you don’t have to wonder if the pearl is genuine – after all, you know exactly where it came from!

Right by the waterfront, Pearl Factory puts the excitement of pearl hunting into your very own hands.

And while there are plenty of already-finished pieces to buy on the go here, the store’s professional craftsmen are ready to hand-make the jewelry for you on the spot, too. Florida is one of only four states where you can find the Pearl Factory, so don’t waste this opportunity while you’re at Disney World.

3. Fancy Chocolate

There’s nothing quite like fancy chocolates, and while there are plenty of straightforward candy options throughout Walt Disney World, Disney Springs is the place to go for top-notch ganache – a chocolate-cream mix used for glazes and fillings. The aptly-named Ganachery specializes in chocolate delights and offers the shop offers the finest in homemade milk and dark chocolate ganache squares.

7. High-End Hot Fudge Sundaes

When it comes to chocolate, some of the finest comes from Ghirardelli, which has been in the chocolate business since 1852. And you can enjoy that high-end chocolate in a classic soda fountain shop setting harkening back to the brand’s roots and its main location at Fisherman’s Wharf in California — all without leaving central Florida!

  1. I will personally vouch for the Star Wars experience at The Void. Yes, it is pricey, but it is a must do at least once for any Star Wars fan.
