About

Discovery Trading Company is one of the larger souvenir shops inside the Animal Kingdom. Exterior signage labels a part of this location as Riverside Depot, but both stores operate under the Discovery Trading Company name.

Inside features open rafters and a rustic feel with carvings and other intricate details. Guests can purchase bags, hats, jewelry, shirts and other merchandise. Some of the more unique merchandise includes carved animals and Disney Couture items.

Much of the merchandise inside Discovery Trading Company is specific to the Animal Kingdom and is also available in some of the specialty shops around the park.

Outdoor kiosks offer display beaded jewelry and bags while the larger interior shop features a larger variety of options.

The rustic yet colorful theming of Discovery Island continues inside and outside Discovery Trading Company and the focus of the animal designs feature the six directions: North, South, East, West, Above and Below.

The Riverside Depot area specializes in more generic Disney merchandise like plush, shirts and other souvenirs.
