    You can't pick these up just anywhere you know. A speciality for sure. This place has everything you could want. The size of 2 football fields, plus a food court (seemed expensive), The shops were priced pretty good. Neat place to walk round, they had shopping carts shaped like fish and whales for the kids.

    Route !: Decent vendors on Duval St. Key West

    by tpangelinan Written Mar 2, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    T-Shirts, Beach Towels (2 for $25.00) They are huge, and they are embroydered, not iron ons!

    What to buy: Low pressure salesmen. They will not nag you into buying something, which made them outstanding in our book! We like to be left alone to shop. They were around when we needed them, but low-key.

    Fishermen's Village: A fun place to shop for souvenirs

    by Jefie Written Jan 8, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Punta Gorda's Fishermen's Village is located at the end of West Retta Esplanade, next to the marina. This large complex overlooking Charlotte Harbor features several specialty and souvenir shops as well as some nice restaurants. It's one of the top attractions in the area, and I must admit that I spent at least a couple hours wandering in and out of the little stores where I managed to find quite a few souvenirs. My two favourite shops turned out to be Bella Balsamic, a store that sells imported balsamic vinegar and olive oil, and the Beach Bums Sweet Shoppe, especially because of its pick & choose salt water taffy section :o)

    Walmart in Kissimmee: Shoppers wonderland!?

    by tracey.brownsword Updated Jan 17, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Walmart -what can i say! it's huge. Depends how you see shopping in a huge supermarket that seems to stock everything!! Either a nightmare or a dream?

    What to buy: If you are after cheap gifts for the folks back home, then Walmart is a good place to get them. They do Florida/Disney t-shirts, postcards, fridge magnets etc and these are a lot cheaper than the gift shops in the theme parks and tourist areas.

    What to pay: How much have you got...!

    Disney's Photo Pass - Best Souvenir Option: Disney World Photo's Last a Lifetime

    by MarieGutscher Updated Mar 13, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    At almost every Character stop around Disney World you'll find a photographer. Get the photopass card from the first photographer and use it for the rest of the day thus capturing all images on one card each day.

    What to buy: If you're looking for special souvenir's from you Disney Vacation just remember that those ears will eventually end up crumpled and forgotten, the amazing string thing (something my son bought) will end up broken and discarded.

    We got the photopass card and had photo's taken with every character possible along with having the autograph book signed.

    Yes it's expensive but at the end of the day you can spend an awful lot of money on merchandise that has a life expectancy of a year or so...or you can have an album full of family photo's with each character.

    Also, you will have the option of having all of your photo's put on a CD or you can go online (see below) and make your very own book! What a great lifetime lasting souvenir!

    What to pay: We spent around 15 dollars per 5 by 7. Expensive? Yes! But we had saved so much money using the meal plan and booking off season that we had the extra money to spend on professional photographs of our family. And of course, they're printed on site! No waiting!

    Florida Taxes!

    by Fullmoonfever Written Jun 9, 2008

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sales Taxes
    6% (food, prescription and non-prescription drugs exempt).
    There are additional county sales taxes which could make the combined rate as high as 9.5%.

    Gasoline Tax: 32.6 cents/gallon

    Diesel Fuel Tax: 28.5 cents/gallon

    Local taxes for gasoline vary from 5.5 cents to 17 cents, plus there is a 2.07% gasoline pollution tax.

    Cigarette Tax: 33.9 cents/pack of 20

    I belive that hotel taxes are between 10% to 15%.

    The exact amount of all local sales taxes, gasoline and diesel taxes and hotel vary by location.
