You know that super fun game, Kill Boff Marry? Estelle from This Happy Place Blog and I play a WDW-themed version called Kill Refurb Marry on the second Wednesday of every month. And now we’ve invited all of YOU to play along. In fact, you can see a full list of all of the bloggers who’re participating this month.
This is the sweet sixteenth Kill Refurb Marry Blog Hop! This month we’re getting some holiday shopping done at Disney Parks Souvenir Shops!
Kill: Mickey’s Gift Station (Ticket and Transportation Center)
You probably don’t even know this exists. But it does. It’s a little store offering basic Disney merch near the bus station at the Ticket and Transportation Center. If you need an umbrella or sunblock, this place will serve you well. But there’s nothing unique here, and no real reason for it to exist. (I don’t know why, but things at the TTC just fill me with rage.)
Refurb: Stage One Company Store (Disney’s Hollywood Studios)
Don’t take this wrong. I love LOVE love that the Muppets have their own store … I just wish they really had their own store. Every trip, I spend waaaaay too long wandering around in here, making sure to look at absolutely every item, and lately, I’ve noticed that there are fewer and fewer Muppets-themed items each time I visit. What gives? The shop is chock-a-block full of puns and sight gags that are totally worth a visit, but I wish there was more Muppety merchandise and less standard Disney merchandise.
Marry: Marketplace Co-Op
You probably thought I was going to say MouseGear. And maybe on a different day I would. (My loyalties are fickle!) But today, Co-Op has my heart. I wrote about it back in June when it first opened, but I just love the expansive space, the flexible mini-stores within and the totally unique merch–including retro-fabulous homewares, bold and colorful jewelry and big floppy hats. It’s a big win with me.
Thanks so much for reading! Don’t forget to check out Kill Refurb Marry posts by other Disney bloggers! And make sure you come back on January 14 for Kill Refurb Marry … on a yet-to-be-determined topic!!
