    I with you that the stores are quite lacking now that everyone carries nearly the same thing everywhere you go. For instance, the shops on Hollywood Blvd used to have some really unique Disney-MGM clothes items - shirts, sweaters, even boxers. You don't find that flashy "Hollywood" stuff there anymore. In fact, you don't find much "Disney Hollywood Studio" stuff at all. Make me wonder if another name change is on it's way. The only place that's really unique is the one you mention in the AK. We love that place because there's so much different stuff.

    The one thing I wish WDW would do is bring back more park-specific items. I want to buy more Epcot stuff and AK items and DHS clothing - but it's just not there like it used to be.

    Working for Disney. No, no. Working (in a Modesto office) for (the money to take a trip to) Disney (World/Land)

    Great article! Well-researched and fun to read. Thanks!
    Ever since the switchover to most items available in most shops we've just concentrated on attractions and shows and save our shopping for a last day, World of Disney visit and the few shops (as you mentioned) that are still unique venues.

    We rarely go in any stores in the parks or Resorts now. Whomever the brainless Executive was that decided to just sell the same stuff, in all stores, I thank you. Our souvenir spending has dropped greatly. We have older resort and park specific merchandise from our early 2000 trips, now instead of getting stuff from 5 places we are down to one. Quality has dropped too, a sweatshirt I bought in Pleasure Island back in 2001 is still in great shape. T-shirts from the last trip in 2010 are dying already.
