    Best gift shop at the resort?

    Hi everyone,

    I'm going for my Mom's birthday soon and she will be able to get the $69 disney cash. What is the best gift shop at Disneyland or CA Adventures to buy Disney-related gifts that look nice? We usually buy random mugs/key chains/Mickey ear hats, etc at the store on Main Street, but are there stores that sell more elegant Disney items?

    I know the store by Disney Animation at DCA (Off The Page?) has some very nice items. Probably a good place to start.

    We'd like to buy just an item or two so they can be nice quality gifts from Disney =)

    All of the higher-end, more expensive, and more elegant items can be found on Main Street. Disneyana has some great stuff, mostly Disney artwork. Also on Main Street is New Century Jewelry, New Century Timepieces, China Closet, and Crystal Arts. There's also a few specialty shops in New Orleans Sqaure.

    Disneyana on Main Street has Disney related items that go beyond the normal tourist fare. That is where I spent most of my birthday gift card. I was pleasantly surprised by the number of items within my budget. There's also a section of the World of Disney in Downtown Disney that has the more elegant Disney items.

    I spent my birthday money in the store on Main Street that used to be the watch store. I got a mirror and a cup and saucer set and a Sleeping Beauty ceramic "trash can" (for lack of a better description) that I keep my fingernail polish in. I have plenty of t-shirts from prior trips, this was fun stuff.

    Wow, I've actually never looked at the shops on main street except for the big gift shop at the corner as you're walking out of the park at midnight.

    I'll make sure my mom spends some time in the stores along Main Street.

    Thanks!

    The hat shop next to the Opera House has a wide variety of hats.
    There is a music store on Main Street with blue-ray, DVD, CD, song books, books, guides, and other stuff and playstation or something like that.

    Christmas stuff is on the northeast side of the shops and next to the phot shop. The phot shop has kitchen stuff.

    On the corner across from Emporium is a celebration shop with some quaint items and make your own items.

    Be sure to ask if the store can take the gift card. Am fairly sure that Crystal Arts is not connected to the network as it is not Disney but a private vendor.

    Yeah the game cartridges only not the systems. I think it is Playstation 3 but not sure and they had about 5 or 6 games to buy.

    There's also a really cute gift shop next to the pool at the Disneyland Hotel.

    At least there was a couple of years ago.
