Shopping at Disney's Character Warehouse
Shopping at Disney’s Character Warehouse before it closed due to the pandemic.

A great place to get good deals on discounted Disney merchandise is Disney’s Character Warehouse at the Outlet Stores.

Disney’s Character Warehouse store carries a wide variety of discounted merchandise. It’s a clearing house for out-of-season and over-stocked Disney merchandise. Most items are 25-50% off original price or more, and cast members get an additional 10% discount at the register.

Parking can be absolutely insane at the Outlet Mall; it’s busy pretty much all year round.

Parking Tip:  Park in the free above-ground parking lot on the westside.  Forget about circling around the parking lots looking for a spot to park.  Not going to happen.

If this is your first visit, find a guide map/sign in the center of the sidewalk. Head straight for the food court, because Disney’s Character Warehouse is located right next door.

NEW!  Check in with the cast member out front and they’ll add you to the waitlist and give you an estimated return time.  They are only allowing 20 people in the store at a time right now.  Face masks must be worn inside the store at all times.
