Perfect Present

Fall/Winter 10-11

One of the hardest things to do during the busy holiday season is finding the perfect present for your friends and family. Orlando has some of the best shopping around and you are sure to find something for everyone on your list.

Visit the Country Store at Showcase of Citrus. Grab t-shirts, caps and canvas shopping bags that proudly tell you’ve experienced the world’s greatest U-Pick Citrus Grove in person, or pick up some locally grown sauces, pickles, jams and jellies. To really put a smile on someone’s face, have a bushel of fresh Florida oranges or grapefruit delivered right to their door.

Inspired by J.K. Rowling’s compelling stories and characters, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal’s Islands of Adventure provides visitors with a one-ofa- kind experience complete with multiple themed attractions, shops and an eating establishment. Visitors to Ollivanders Wand Shop will be surrounded by thousands of multi-colored dusty wand boxes stacked on shelves from floor to ceiling. The Wandkeeper will guide them through an enchanting experience to find their very own wand.

The Florida Mall, Central Florida’s largest and most visited mall, is the ideal place to find the "Perfect Present" for yourself or a loved one back home. Whether you just want a memento from your trip to Orlando, or to show someone you care, with more than 250 stores, you are sure to find the perfect item.

No trip to Orlando is complete without a visit to the Ghirardelli® Ice Cream and Chocolate Shop located in the Downtown Disney® Area. Here you can sample their famous SQUARES™ chocolates, buy souvenir treats for friends and family, and indulge in the World Famous Hot Fudge Sundae!

The bark is back! For a limited time, Ghirardelli offers its line of Peppermint Bark chocolate gifts. Savor the complex symphony of intense chocolate layers sprinkled with refreshing, festive peppermint.
