Buena Vista Street – Elias & Co. anchors the end of Buena Vista Street, right where it opens up to the larger plaza. You’ll find it’s stylish marquee on the corner, between the entrance to Hollywood Land and the main street.
- Merchandise – Clothing, accessories, Disney collectibles
- Price Range – cheaper accessories under $20, some collectibles in the hundreds
- Unique Features – Art deco style, Elias & Co. Partygoers
Elias & Co. is Buena Vista Street’s most glamorous retailer. At the front of the store, you’ll find the latest Disney collectibles, jewelry, and Dooney & Burke collections. In the back rooms, choose from a large selection of men’s, women’s, and junior clothing, so you can spend your day in the parks in style.
The front room in Elias & Co. is worth visiting, even if you don’t plan on buying anything. Apart from being a gorgeous shop in general, the front room always has the latest & greatest Disney stuff, and I just like seeing what’s new. Since the store is fairly large, you shouldn’t have much trouble getting around. Although, I’d avoid the shop during parade time; a lot of guests block the doorways trying to get a peak as the parade passes around Buena Vista Street!
The name “Elias” is a Disney family name: it was Walt’s middle name and his father’s name.
Elias & Co.’s art deco style draws inspiration from Los Angeles in the 1920s, the era and location replicated by Buena Vista Street.
