New Orleans Square Shops

New Orleans Square has always had an interesting mix of shops. Over the years, the Square has had shops selling crystal, hats, perfume, souvenirs of New Orleans cemeteries, cooking supplies, and much more.

In 1967, the One-of-a-Kind Shop opened in New Orleans Square, selling antiques, rare books, and other one-of-a-kind collectibles. As a unique place that catered to the refined, intelligent Disneyland guest, its days were numbered. In 1995, the One-of-a-Kind shop began carrying reproductions of antiques, and it gave up the ghost completely in May of 1996 when it was replaced by Le Bat en Rouge -- a store for bat makeup. It is scheduled to be closed again in January, after which it will be replaced by a Starbucks.

In addition to Le Bat en Rouge, New Orleans Square has two Christmas shops -- one dedicated entirely to Christmas tree ornaments, and the other a more general Christmas shop that just happens to carry ornaments. Because this is supposed to be New Orleans, most of the Christmas items are Disney themed. In concert with the annual retheming of Pirates of the Carribbean, the ornament shop becomes New Orleans Party Central during spring break, selling non-alcoholic beer, Disney party music, and character thongs.
