Downtown Disney – Fossil holds a coveted spot in the center courtyard of Downtown Disney. Whether you are coming from the hotel side or the park side of the district, you’ll walk to the center circle with the outdoor bar (Uva). Fossil is on the southern side of the circle, next to Disney Vault 28.

- Price Range – Watches range from $50 to $150+, clothes and accessories vary quite a bit

Downtown Disney’s Fossil store is the resort’s watch kingdom. Though the store is fairly small, it stocks a huge selection of watches, clothes, jewelry, tech accessories, and other leather goods. Some watches even come in a special Disney tin!
Since Fossil is one of the more “high-end” shops in Downtown Disney, it typically doesn’t draw the same major traffic flow as nearby stores like Marceline’s or Build-A-Bear. People often browse before dinner reservations, so if you want a quiet shopping trip, avoid the store between 5 and 8. Fossil also closes at 10 pm, earlier than most other stores in Downtown Disney. Otherwise, there aren’t really any tips or tricks to change your shopping experience.
Another note: Fossil is one of the few non-Disney stores in the Downtown strip that accepts pass holder discounts!
The original marquee for the store featured giant neon tubes, with each tube containing a different letter.
