The shopping at the Animal Kingdom theme park does not provide the array of shops or gift stores you will see at EPCOT or Magic Kingdom.
Tip on saving money at Disney World. The two biggest expenses you will have on your Disney World vacation is: buying souvenirs (gifts for the children) and food. One way to save on the gifts for children is to have to wait all until the last day of your vacation to purchase their special present. This will give them the opportunity to look at everything Disney has to offer before making up their mind. The best places to go for kids souvenirs is EPCOT or Hollywood Studios.
