Here's where to shop for Disney and other theme park gifts

December 4, 2018, 10:45 PM · Looking for Christmas gifts for the theme park fans in your life? If you can't make it to the parks in time to buy this year's holiday presents, most major parks enable you to order theme park souvenirs online. It's the perfect way to do your holiday shopping without leaving home.

(However, if you are using "holiday shopping" as your excuse for an extra trip to Disney World, Disneyland, or Universal Studios this week, you can just forget about these links and go on as usual. Just pick up something for us, okay?)

Disney is the biggest theme park company, so it shouldn't surprise anyone that Disney also has the biggest online shopping presence for its theme parks: Shop Disney Parks. This is the place to go if you didn't get the mouse ears and other swag your family wanted on your most recent trip.

On the website you can click to shop for merchandise from Walt Disney World and from Disneyland. Disney also has an online shop for Disneyland Paris, as well. And if you are in Japan, you can buy merchandise from Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea from the official Tokyo Disney app. The app is not available for download outside Japan, however.

Universal fans can do their holiday shopping online at Shop Universal Orlando. Universal has its merchandise catalogue organized by franchise, including popular wands, souvenirs, and clothing from The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, as well as new Fantastic Beasts wands and shirts, too.

SeaWorld has an online shop for a selection of merchandise from its SeaWorld and Busch Gardens theme parks.

If you are looking for some tasty treats to put under the tree, visit the Knott's Berry Farm Online Marketplace, where you can get the park-exclusive "Berry Market" preserves and syrup that are way better than the "Knott's Berry Farm" branded items from ConAgra that you can find in any supermarket. (IMHO)

Speaking of sweets, go shopping at the Hersheypark online store for gifts from America's sweetest theme park destination.

Finally, let's not forget at friends at Holiday World's HoliShop, with gifts from the roller coaster mecca in the Hoosier heartland.

DEVIL! Why would you tease us with an APP for shopping at TDL and then toss out the fact that you must be in Japan to do so! #TakeMyYen

Anyone try a VPN on that TDR app yet? Success?

One thing I've noticed within the last year is that Shop Disney moved more merch to "In Store Only". I like to bag items throughout the year, and I noticed that pins that I had purchased in the past are now only available at the resort.
