Disney merchandise prices DCL vs. on land

Can anyone tell me if the pricing of Disney merchandise (stuffed animals, T-shirts, kids jewelry) is the same on the ships as they are at Downtown Disney. I give my kids a specific amount of spending money and use it as a "teaching moment" for money management, budgeting, delaying self-gratification, etc.

We plan to cruise first and then will go to Downtown Disney before heading back the following day. I am not so concerned about DCL exclusive merchandise rather a stuffed Minnie Mouse or Princess Figurines.

I am assuming that the ship merchandise is more expensive for the same exact thing on land.

Hit the Disney Character Outlet at the Outlet mall and save yourself half the price we've managed to get some amazing deals there. Last trip was brought back Disney Throw Blankets. Tag $64 price $9.99. V-nec white t-shirts for $2.99.
It may be last season stuff but we don't care. There lots of great deals there.
