Any other Basin fans??

I absolutely love Basin at DTD!!! I bought some Salt Scrub and 3 bottles of "Florida Sunshine" lotion. (Unfortunately I only made it home with 1, because I forgot and put two of them in my carryon and had it taken at airport security ) But I think I will have to keep a bottle all year just to remind me of Florida!! Anyone else have a fave product?

We always go to Basin or first night to get some stuff for the trip. It is kind of a tradition now we always talk about Basin. On our last trip we found a very nice Basin store at the Grand Floridian.

And I still eat raw cookie dough-oatmeal raisin-I figure the fiber counteracts the samonella.

I love the bath bombs...they smell so wonderful and it's nice to get a relaxing bath whenever I can, vs the usual quick shower and get to work.

The bottles of lotion, such as Florida Sunshine, was only 9.99. It is a typical 8 ounce bottle. Salt scrubs were about $25. Mickey bar soaps, which DS loved, were around 6 bucks, I think.

Another lover of Basin products here. Just FYI: I found out a couple of years ago that you can use your AP discount at the Grand Floridian Basin, just like you can at the DTD store. I wasn't aware of that until I was in the GF Basin one day and just mentioned it to a CM. She said alot of people didn't realize the discount was good at both stores.

I love Basin. I never leave Disney without stopping in one of the shops. The cute slices of soaps make nice souvenirs/gifts for my friends at home.

Okay I just went here the other day for the first time. I love here and I have never noticed it before, I guess because it's a bit hidden away. Wow, that place is fantastic! Pretty pricey though. But I tested out their salt scrubs and the body butters and they are clearly the best I have ever tried!

I have been a fan of solid shampoo since someone gave me a bar of Lush. Basin solid shampoos are soooooo much nicer. I'm in love!

It's near the World of Disney store (the one where Stitch spits on you). If you go to the side of it in between that and Ghiardelli, it will be down a bit and to the left. It's kind of hidden. I live here and have always missed it.


Okay tried everything last night. I felt like I had been to the spa, lol.

The shampoo bar is amazing! I got the hair food one. I'm not so sure about the conditioner bar though. It didn't feel like it had done anything. But I liked the shampoo bar better than any bottle I've tried and I have long hair.

I also got 2 of the salt scrubs, a moisturizer stick, a lip scrub, and 2 body butters. All amazing!
