The Grand Department Store

Buena Vista Street in Disney California Adventure shares a lot of parallels to Main Street in Disneyland, and among them is the big, main shopping destination for Disney wares of all sorts.  Over on Main Street, it's the Emporium.  And over at Buena Vista Street, it's Elias & Company--a tribute to the great department stores of the day.

Named after Walt Disney's father, Elias, this department store features souvenirs of all sorts, from clothing to graphic media to dinnerware to accessories.  It's a one-stop shop for practically all the park has to offer.  And its intricate art deco facade celebrates the golden age of Los Angeles, during which Walt Disney made his trek out west.  Just one of many stories within the story of the reborn Disney California Adventure.
