    If you're willing to part with that kind of $$, you might want to check out the custom watches that are available on Main Street USA, on Sunset Blvd in MGM, and probably a couple of other places. You get to choose the artwork, drawn by an animator, personalized just for you. They have all kinds of characters available.

    There is also a nice selection of watches in MouseGear at Epcot.

    There is a great watch spot in Sir Mickey's in the Magic Kingdom. I got myself a watch there about a year or so ago that I love!
    Sometimes all you need is a reminder that out there lies a better place... a better world... a Walt Disney World.

    I recall seeing some really nice watches in the jewelry department at the World of Disney - Downtown Disney. I don't think you'll have any trouble finding the type of watch for which you are looking.

    My husband found his favorite watch in the gift shop at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. I'm sure the Wilderness Lodge will have a nice selection in their gift shop as well.

    EVERYONE who posted above, I have written down these places and suggestions! Thank you all for the quick responses! As you guys know, there is so much to do and so much going on when you are at WDW that if I have an idea of where I want to go to look, that makes things a whole lot easier! Thanks again everyone... if anyone else has any good suggestions, please continue to fire them away here!!! :o)

    I prefer the World of Disney store at Downtown Disney. I found a fantastic Mickey Mouse Skagen in January for under $200, and a very cool retro leather-band (always switchable to metal) WDW watch for under $100 in April.

    My DH found a great watch in MK but I found mine at World of Disney. THe other watches I have bought in the past were bought on Main Street in MK. Some day, I would like one of the artist watches they sell there.

    Re: Men's WDW Wrist Watch

    Character watches are one of the most popular watch themes ever invented. These types of watches are a great way to get youngsters interested in time keeping.
