Where is a good place to buy postcards

We are going to WDW in July and I would love to know where is a good place to purchase post cards. I like to collect them of the things we do on vacation and the last time we went to WDW I had a difficult time finding them. So can you tell me where to buy disney post cards.

Thanks for the help.
Donna

If memory serves me right, during our 2003 trip we went into a Downtown Disney store called Wonderful World of Memories. It's located next to the art store right down from the Rainforest Cafe. At that time you could buy and mail the postcards out with an authentic Disney postmark. It was of Tink. Really neat.
They had a little post office set up next to the cash registers. Worth checking into to see if they still do that.

Thanks for the info, on our last trip, I bought a postcard in the gift shop of resort, they were able to supply me with a stamp and even had the mailbox for me to mail my postcard. However, they must not think to check it on a regular basis because I beat the postcard home nine days later.

That's where we bought our postcards as well! Even better, they have the 'books' of postcards that are much more economical than the single postcards, so I was able to send quite a bit of magic to friends & family without breaking the bank... which I'd already done!

Dh and I stayed at AKL last fall. After searching all over the place for postcards, I discovered that my resort had a better selection than the shops in the parks or at DTD. Go figure??

We actually shopped in the AKL shops last year. They really have some great, high-quality merchandise! We'll definitely hit it again this year.

Art of Disney at Epcot sells *beautiful* postcards. They're $1 each, but worth it!

On our last trip the same thing happened to us. We beat the post cards home and some people got them 2 weeks after we were home. Some co workers were upset with me cause they thought I slighted them. Their faces were red when the post card finally arrived. I bought mine from our resort and sent them off in the post box they proved, and my guess is it must not be checked that often.
