One difference that we noticed at Disneyland compared to Walt Disney World is that the attractions do not enter into shops. That aside, shopping was still plentiful, fun, and easy. Each of the Disneyland Resort Hotels had shops located near the lobby and Downtown Disney had a large World of Disney Store that guests could wander in and out of at their leisure. We also found shops in various locations in both parks.
Our souvenir haul included Christmas tree ornaments—one from Disneyland commemorating the 60th Anniversary and one from Legoland, a bulb shaped ornament filled with golden Legos complete with golden ribbon. I had already put these items away, so no photos.
We also brought back some art. One piece is to commemorate both parks—Disneyland and California Adventure. We rode both of the attractions featured in the art work. The other is a bit of memorabilia from our Walt in Walt’s Footsteps Tour. Frames will be coming via Amazon.
Accessories spoke my name and I brought home scarves with various images of Mickey and other Disney icons. I also snagged a new purse and wallet. We had left the World of Disney Store without me purchasing the wallet. As time passed, I had that “I will regret this” feeling, so I went back and made the purchase. Won’t any money I have left after this trip look good in this wallet?
The husband bought several new pins and a new lanyard. He also got a new hat and a Disney luau shirt. It’s yellow and red and he’s worn it already since we’ve been home! (I may have to get one that matches!)
Speaking of matching shirts, we got a new set of matching t-shirts. Just couldn’t resist ones from Carsland!
The boy got an Avenger playset, new Disney pins, an Anger stuffed toy—from Inside Out, and an Anger t-shirt. Anger is his favorite character from the movie. And, he got Legos! Ironically, most of his Legos came from the Lego store at Downtown Disney rather than the “Big One’ which is what the store is called at Legoland. He wanted Jurassic World sets and Legoland was sold out. We knew the Lego Store at Downtown Disney had them so we just waited until we returned. He did purchase on set of Legos at Legoland.
We saved money! At Legoland, having a Lego VIP Card saved us 5% on the Lego purchases. At the Lego Store at Downtown Disney, using the Lego VIP card allowed us to earn points and we got $5 off our purchase.
We also saved 10% on Disney purchases by using our Disney Rewards Visa card. Any purchase over $50 was subject to the 10% discount using the card.
Package delivery to the front of the park was available at both Disneyland parks. Guests could also have their purchases delivered to the Disneyland Resort Hotel. But different than Walt Disney World, packages went to Bell Services rather than the resort shop.
