Shopping at Disney's Animal Kingdom®

Before you spend all of your time (and money) at Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Theme Park, here are a few tips for you. First, if you’re a guest at a Walt Disney World® Resort hotel, you can take advantage of package delivery to your hotel room free of charge. You also don’t have to worry about bringing your credit card with you either – just simply show your room key and the charges for all purchases will be billed directly to your room account. In addition, for an extra fee, your purchases can be shipped anywhere in the world via FedEx – but it will take a little longer than usual to get to your destination because of processing delays at the Walt Disney World® Resort. Or, if you get home from your vacation and regret not purchasing something you saw, you can order any item from the theme parks at any time be calling 407-363-6200 during business hours, and also use the app to order what you want most.  

On your way into the park, it may be a good idea to check out Garden Gate Gifts at the Oasis just inside the main entrance. Here, you can rent wheelchairs and strollers for the day, but this is also the place to pick up any items you might need for a day in the park. Garden Gate Gifts is also the official photo center for Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Theme Park, meaning you can buy memory cards, cameras, pictures frames and albums here, as well as view and purchase the photos taken that day in the park by the professional photographers.

There is a plethora of shopping available to guests at Discover Island® Area as you enter the park. At Creature Comforts, you can find anything for kids of all ages, including Pirates of the Caribbean® Attraction merchandise, plush animals, Disney princess dolls, CD’s and DVD’s and Walt Disney World® Resort apparel. Or, if you’re looking for more adult gifts, head over to Disney Outfitters, where you can purchase upscale men’s and women’s apparel, jewelry, watches, frames and globes.

This African marketplace and trading company features artifacts straight from the Harambe village, including gourds, soapstone wood carvings, hand-painted gift boxes, plus Kilimanjaro Safaris merchandise.
