Unlike the Disney Store website, the Shop Disney Parks App allows you to search for products both online and throughout the parks. You can search and/or select a product and either locate it in one of the Walt Disney World Resort retail locations, or order it to be shipped to your house.

Let’s say you wanted the 2015 Food & Wine 20 Years Figment Magnet. When you click on the item it give you the option to “Find on Map”, “Add to Bag”, or “Order Now.” If you select “Find on Map”, you can locate shops throughout Walt Disney World that have the item, see their hours of operation, and find out if the item is in stock.

This is a great way to find a souvenir without wandering all around the “world” searching for it. But soon, this shopping option gets even better. Soon you will be able to select a specific Resort Hotel for delivery, choose Park Gate Pick-up, or simply have it shipped to your house. This definitely could come in handy when you are physically on Walt Disney World property. After standing in lines all day, who wants to wait in line with your souvenirs? Kill two birds with one stone and shop while waiting for an attraction!

How’s that for easy?
