Villians in Vogue
One of my most favorite stores is in Disney's Hollywood Studios. When you stroll on down Sunset Boulevard, you will find Villains in Vogue. I love this shop, because the merchandise is very unique from many of the others stores. I personally love the princesses, but the villains are some of my favorite characters, especially Maleficent and the Wicked Queen. On our last trip, I found the merchandise to have a significant amount of Nightmare Before Christmas items and less of the other villains. I hope this isn't going to be the trend, because being able to find drinkware, clothing, and games with the Queen of Hearts, Captain Hook, Cruella DeVil and all the other villains made this shop very unique.
I could spend a large portion of my Disney vacation browsing through the stores in World Showcase. But there are two shops I just love visiting, though in both these shops, I go in alone. My husband gets to watch the kids outside to make sure nothing is touched that shouldn't be. The first is Volskunst in the Germany Pavilion. The clocks on display are just beautiful, and I love taking the time to appreciate all the details. They also have an amazing selection of authentic German beer steins. The second shop I enjoy is La Bottega Italiana at the Italy Pavilion. Though there are many items in here, my favorites are the Venetian masks. They are absolutely beautiful. What I especially appreciate about both these shops is that the items are hand crafted. I must admit I haven't made purchases in either of these shops, but they are places I must visit on any trip to Epcot.

trip to Walt Disney World
There are so many places to shop in Walt Disney World that every guidebook I own has a section dedicated to just shopping. Of course, this is why we set a strict budget for souvenirs before leaving home - it could be very easy to get carried away!
