Magical Blogorail – Holiday Shopping at Walt Disney World

December 18, 2012

Welcome to those of you joining me from Heidi’s Head and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 3rd stop on our Magical Blogorail. Today we are discussing Holiday shopping at Disney. That just happens to be one of my favorite topics! We have been fortunate to be able to visit Walt Disney World during the Holiday season for the past two years. We love seeing all of the decorations and it makes shopping for family, especially our nieces and nephews, even more fun.

Once Upon a Toy at Downtown Disney

One of my favorite shops to visit for gifts for the kids is my life is Once Upon a Toy at Downtown Disney. Even if you don’t do any shopping it’s still worth stopping in. On of the things I love are the claws that rotate through the store holding different toys. It’s pretty cool.

Don’t forget to look up!

You can find all kinds of Disney toys from games, to stuffed animals, and video games. But one of the unique things you will find in Once Upon a Toy are the parts for your Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head.

Build your Potato Head station.

The station is set up in the front of the store. You choose either a box or a large plastic Mr. Potato Head and you can fill them with as many parts as you can but remember that the lid will need to be able to close. If you need any help just ask one of the Cast Members. The box is around $20 and the plastic container is around $50.

Box available for purchase.

There are lots of Disney specific parts you can grab. I loved the Star Wars themed parts that allow you to turn Mr. Potato Head into Darth Vader. You can also get Princess themed parts for your Mrs. Potato heads. There are also lots of fun Disney items like Mickey ears, Disney Balloons, and Mickey Ice Cream Bars.

A few of the parts available.

Here are a couple of tips if you decide to get a container buy the body for your Potato Head at home. The body will take up lots of space and you need all the space you can get to pick up parts you can only get at Walt Disney World. And if there are only a couple of pieces that you want you can always just purchase them by themselves, no need to buy the container.

Plastic Potato Head containers.

    We LOVE Once Upon a Toy and we LOVE the Potato Head station. We have a big Rubbermaid container filled with all of our goodies. It’s been a few trips since we’ve actually purchased anything, but I think we might have to stock up on some new stuff on our next trip. My personal opinion is that you’re never too old for Mr. Potato Head!
