RPR Gift Shop

I was wondering what the gift shop is like. Do they have snack foods, drinks and resort specific items for purchase like the ones at Disney?
We'll be staying at RPR next May and wanted to know what was available or if we should plan on bringing our own?
Definitely do not want their little mini-bar items. Way too expensive.

rph has a few gift shops.


on 3rd floor/ lobby, they do have snacks in that shop.

the one on 1st floor, has ice cream treats and a few other snacks besides the clothes and knick knacks.

the gift shops does have an assortment of gift items and clothing.

from the rph website:



Two convenient gift shops

Toko Gifts
If you forgot to bring it, you値l find it at the lobby gift shop. Stop by Toko Gifts for a wide range of toiletries and sundry items, magazines, books, soft drinks, snack food, Loews Royal Pacific Resort apparel, Universal toys and souvenirs, and much more.

Treasures of Bali
Located across from the lagoon pool, Treasures of Bali can outfit you in the latest tropical island wear and other casual apparel. You値l find swim suits, Hawaiian shirts, hats, grass skirts, jewelry, beach towels and Universal apparel, as well as candy, soft drinks, snack food, reading material, imported gifts and other souvenirs.

I'm trying to find the thread of about 2 weeks back where a poster showed us a picture of the food/snack section of toko gifts.

Keep in mind if you are using transportation or renting a car to get to RPR you could make a stop to purchase snacks, Styrofoam cooler, drinks. better selection at a fraction of the price the hotels charge.

Many companies don't charge for a 1/2 hour stop on the way.

walgreens is not a far walk from pbh. it is right behind it.

Walgreens 5501 South Kirkman Road, Orlando, FL


there is a path at pbh.
the path is from the Villa pool, not the Beach pool. The Beach pool is the pool with the slide and it is further away.

the parking lot that you see is the employee parking lot when you are coming up to walgreens.

there is a store nearby that sells spirits/beer.

there are also other stores/places to eat in that area.

older threads :

http://disboards.com/showthread.php?...near+walgreens


to the pp, i don't think beer/liquor can be sold on sundays.

Toko Gifts is reaaaaaaaaaaaaaaally small. I think the walk to a convenient store is probably more of what you are looking for. Treasures of Bali is beautiful and has really neat stuff, but it's more like scarves, t-shirts, sarongs, that kind of thing.

i'll be at rph for 10 days in october.
i'll take a picture of the stuff inside the place.
you are not going for another 9 months so you'll have time to get feedback from me and other posters.


the other gift shop is where i always get my ice cream when they open in the morning.......(treasurs of Bali)
last year they had quite a few snack items too.
