Crockett & Russel isn’t really its own shop so much as a section of a larger store. The Crockett storefront usually includes Disney clothes: sweatshirts, tees, tanks, the works. You’ll also find accessories like scarves, bags, and yes, hats, throughout the small space.
Generally speaking, this shop isn’t ever too crowded. The big exception, though, is right after Fantasmic! lets out. Lots of people hop into Frontierland’s stores to avoid the rushing crowds heading back toward Main Street, so you’ll get trapped in a sea of people in and around the front of the shop. Otherwise, you should be good to go no matter what time of day you visit.
This store originally went by the “American Buffalo Hat Co.”. It changed to Crockett & Russel in honor of Fess Parker, who played Davy Crockett in the 1950s. Parker was honored as a Disney legend in a ceremony in 2004, with both the name change and a window bearing his name on the facade.
