Disney Reviews: Shopping Edition #6 - Main Street Emporium

The Main Street Emporium is a lot of like the World of Disney store in that it is huge and carries almost everything, but that is pretty much where the similarities end. the Emporium takes up the entire left side of Main Street USA in the Magic Kingdom:
2012-0189
2012-0191
2012-0192
2007a-0137

And I've always loved the numerous window displays:
2007-0274
2007-0276
2007-0278
2007-0279
2007-0280
2007-0281
2007-0282
2007-0283


They very much look like individual stores from the outside, but inside, they are all interconnected with archways between each section. Each section does have it's own theme, from toys, to little kids, to adult clothes, etc. The right side of Main Street is individual shops, from the Confectionary to the Jewelers to even a Starbucks, so, of course, they all have their own themes as well, but the Emporium has of those great "look up" decorations (that change seasonally) from Christmas time:
2013 (12)-0569
2013 (12)-0570
2013 (12)-0571
2013 (12)-0572
Lamp time:
2013 (12)-0573
2013 (12)-0742
2013 (12)-0743
2013 (12)-0744

To Halloween time:
2012-0764
2012-0765
Am trying on a hat:
2010-0182

This is probably the best "everything" store in the Magic Kingdom. Epcot has a sister store in Mouse Gear (which we will cover at some point). Neither one of these is World of Disney size, but they are massive and have some amazing things!

I have been following your reviews for a few weeks now and I am really enjoying them! It helps that I LOVE Disney World and I love to see what it looks like now vs. 1998 when I was last visiting. Thanks for them :)
