The Gift Shop at Saratoga Springs (The Artist Palette Shop)
The gift shop at Disney’s Saratoga Springs, The Artist Palette Shop, is located between the resort’s lobby and counter service dining location. Not to confuse things, but Artist Palette is also the name of the counter service dining location at the resort.
This article will preview the items available in the Saratoga Springs gift shop. These photos were all taken in 2023, so everything you see might not be available on your visit. However, this should provide an ideal representation of the type of merchandise you will find at the resort.
This shop differs slightly from most because it sits in a wide-open space. That space transitions into a counter-service restaurant.

On this visit, I found several displays of Saratoga Springs branded merchandise.
There were t-shirts, sweatshirts, tumblers, hats, and other apparel.
Here’s a tumbler with the resort logo.
And a closer look at a few other resort-branded items.
Here is a Sketchbook ornament with the resort’s logo. Mickey and Minnie Mouse are sitting inside the antique car.
These t-shirts with hot air balloons are nice. Disney Springs sits across the water from Saratoga Springs. And you can see the Aerophile balloon in the distance from the resort.
One of the perks of staying at Saratoga Springs is that it’s within walking distance of Disney Springs. As a result, you’ll be close to some of the best restaurants around.

On this visit, we saw a large selection of vintage Disney merchandise featuring classic characters.
Since Saratoga Springs is part of the Disney Vacation Club, the shop usually has several DVC-branded items. Unfortunately, we didn’t see near as much resort-branded or DVC merchandise as we did on our last visit.
However, we did see several displays of Disney 100 merchandise.
You should be able to find a pair of Minnie Ears or a ball cap.
They had a decent selection of journals, games, bath toys, and puzzles.
This display contains a variety of Disney-themed mugs and tumblers.
Here are a few items for the home.
And the back corner of the gift shop has a good variety of children’s items.
In case you forget your swimsuit or need a new one.
There were a couple of pieces of luggage. I imagine an extra suitcase would be handy if you shopped too much at Disney Springs. Most of these clothing items were from the Vineyard Vines brand.
A display of Disney backpacks sat next to the clothes. Additionally, they had a few Disney Dooney and Bourke handbags in the case behind the register.
Now for a few sundries. One display features many essential items you might forget or run out of during your stay.
One side had diapers, Pull-Ups, and Little Swimmers.
There was also a selection of bug spray, over-the-counter medicine, and similar items.
Lastly, the gift shop is where you would pick up a resort refillable mug. At the time of this update, mugs run $21.99. They are good at any resort’s self-service beverage location for the entire length of your resort stay. New designs should debut any day now.
Several pressed penny and autograph books were available near the register. Character meet-and-greets are back in full swing.

These golf balls were also fun!
Overall, the gift shop at Saratoga Springs has a decent variety of items. However, I felt it was lacking compared to gift shops like Bayview Gifts at Disney’s Contemporary or the gift shops at Disney’s Boardwalk Inn.
Perhaps, that’s because there are tons of stores nearby at Disney Springs. Those large stores offer pretty much everything Disney you could ever want.
