    I guess it depends on what your looking for. I like the shops in the Contemporary, Polynesian and Wilderness Lodge. They have some nice clothes, jewlery etc. and there is an art store in the Poly that has some great stuff.
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible!

    I like the contemporary. I've been in the GF, but I didn't like it as much, it seemed to let A LOT of sunlight in, which fades items and makes the store kinda hot. The Poly's normal shop was kinda small.

    I like the Zawadi Marketplace at the Animal Kingdom Lodge
    2nd the Boardwalk
    3rd the Yacht & Beach Club.
    I thought Grand Floridians was hot and uninteresting.

    I liked the Boardwalk and Beach Club, but that might be because I like walking in that area. It is kind of nice to walk and browse around the lake.

    I happen to like the one in Coronado Springs. Each shop has it's own little personality.

    I love all gift shops, but I think that the gift shop in Port Orleans Riverside, called Fulton's General Store, is a really good one.

    Animal Kingdom Resort by far. I've gotten some great instruments from there.

    It's amazing to think that this all started with one little mouse.

    I like both Zawadi (AKL) and M. Mouse Mercantile (GF), but by far the best is Contemporary's, in my opinion at least.

    I never thought about the AKL store.... that is a really nice, big shop with lots of unique items... but I can't decide between the contemporary and the AKL
