Shopping at Old Town

One reason we always go to Old Town is to potter around the shops. There are so many gift shops where we can get the obligatory magnet, pick up a Disney souvenir or just marvel at the eclectic mix of things on offer.

Attractions at Old Town

Old Town is visible from miles around because of the traditional ferris wheel at the entrance. It’s now a tradition that we go on it each time we visit and, although not the highest or greatest views in Orlando, it’s a lovely way to pass time and just simple nostalgic fun.
