Shopping at Downtown Disney West Side

Candy Cauldron

Great theming, be sure to stop in and take a look!  It looks like a fairy tale dungeon, but it is full of sweets (especially jelly beans and fudge).   

Sunglass Icon

The store is designed like a small movie set.  Designer sunglasses galore -- some that are exact replicas of glasses worn by celebrities in recent films. This is a full-service eyewear boutique.

DisneyQuest Emporium

Inside DisneyQuest you can find DisneyQuest logo merchandise (which is not available elsewhere at Disney).

Hoypoloi

Created by Ron Hoy, first in Chicago and now at Downtown Disney West Side, Hoypoloi offers up a gallery full of art glass, ceramics, sculpture and other decorative items.

Magic Masters

Features a fireplace, a Victorian replica chandelier, cherry bookcases with old magic books and memorabilia and other items inspired by the library of Harry Houdini. The demonstrations (3 different ones) will last about 10 minutes. There is a Teaching Room where you can learn how to use the items you purchased and an Illusion Room where Pepper's Ghost will be demonstrated. Tricks start at $15.00. (The Wildhorse Saloon Store used to occupy this space.)

Magnetron

Interestingly enough, there are NO Disney magnets in this store.  You can find plenty of Warner Brother items, however.  Specialty refrigerator magnet shop with an assortment of collector-quality magnets. 

Pop Gallery

Original, artist-signed limited sculptures and paintings, high-end gift items. (This is located on the former site of the Guitar Gallery, which has relocated elsewhere in Orlando.)

Sosa Family Cigars

Premium cigar store features the art of hand-rolling cigars.  An authentic, solid cedar humidor room keeps the cigars fresh for a primo smoking experience.  You will find cigars that aren't common back home such as the very hard to get Opus X and Fuente Hemingways.   They will also ship any of the cigars EXCEPT the Opus X anywhere in the US.  A must stop for cigar aficionados. 

Starabilias

Restored jukeboxes, vintage Coca-Cola machines,  themed key chains, posters,  autographed celebrity photos and clothing can be found here.

Rather, Cirque du Soleil is a completely immersive combination of circus and theatrical presentation combining elements of modern dance, staging, humor and acrobatic stunts.
