Everybody dreams of that perfect vacation to Orlando; 1 week in the parks, some fun and relaxation at the pool, and maybe even a fancy meal or two, but nothing seems as important as getting those perfect gifts to bring back home for yourselves to remember the parks by, or for your loved ones who could not make the journey with you. However, buying park merchandise can be rather pricey, and coupled with the amount already spent between airfare/gas, a hotel, food and park tickets, gifts for yourselves and/or others can start to seem out-of-the-realm of necessary expense for you and your family. That’s where we step in to help! Whether it be our friendly neighborhood Target just behind Walt Disney World Property, or the Orlando Premium Outlets’ Vineland or International stores, there’s merchandise available to fit everybody’s budget, with central locations that are convenient no matter the property you decide to call home for the duration of your trip.

Orlando Premium Outlets at Vineland and International – For official Disney Parks merchandise at a significantly discounted price, look no further than the Orlando Premium Outlets – located near Walt Disney World at 8200 Vineland Ave, Orlando, FL 32821, as well as near Universal Orlando Resort at 4951 International Dr, Orlando, FL 32819. From T-Shirts to Disney Parks pins, these outlet stores have an abundance of unique Disney Park items to choose from, at prices that will save you from breaking the bank (we should note that much of the merchandise for sale is inconsistent with what is currently for sale at the Walt Disney World theme parks, as much of this merchandise has landed at the outlet stores due to an overstocking of, or unsold, items.)
