Overall Experience – 4.51
Prices – 4.19
Item Selection – 4.00
Great selection on Disney items, and nice selection of food/non grocery items
Very nice remodel since last visit. It was usually closed when we left for the day and when we got back, but one morning we had a few moments.
A nice satellite store which carries supplies tailored to visiting the parks (esp water) for adults and families. Good prices.
Did not sell swim diapers, which are required for the pool. They kept telling me to come back yet never got them.
Nice & convenient. A good overall selection of items
I thought the merchandise was a little pricey
The prices are a bit expensive. I had hoped they would be a bit cheaper.
Out of stock on diapers we needed.
Wish had few more items like case of water.
Could have more Disney souvenirs.
Should not run out of items like kids medicine, etc.
Friendly staff, a really good selection of products per square foot, and seemed to be about the same price I’d pay at home (a few items, like Monster energy drinks, were marked up though).
They got rid of magazines! Tons of Disney merchandise a little skimpy but prices are good. I use the store multiple times every stay. They take the Star Card.
A lot of their Disney merchandise had some type of military logo on it. Not really looking for Disney merchandise with Navy/Army logo on it.
I appreciated you had items that were forgotten but direly needed
There was too much Disney and other type merchandise that was highly overpriced.
Milk was more expensive than what I’m used to paying at home, but the Disney Merchandise was significantly cheaper than the parks.
