Where can I buy the accessories for Mr. Potato Head? The Disney ones? My cousin bought them at her last trip but can't remember from where. Thanx!

Disney Mr. Potato Head -- How cool is that! For those of you not in the know, let me explain what Jennifer is talking about. At several locations throughout Disney World there are Mr. Potato Head assembly stations. For a set fee you get a potato base and can fill a small box with all the accessories (arms, ears, etc.) that you can cram in there. The twist is that instead of the regular accessories that you might find pre-boxed at Toys R Us, you choose your own selections from special Disney-themed items. For example, an arm might be holding a Mickey-shaped balloon, or a hat might be the classic Mickey-ears beanie.
Over the years, I've seen the Potato Head stations move around a bit. The main place that I've always seen them is the Once Upon a Toy store at Downtown Disney. On other occasions, I've also seen them in the Emporium on Main Street, at a shop in DinoLand in the Animal Kingdom, and on Hollywood Boulevard at Disney's Hollywood Studios. The Potato Head have also been sold at the gift shop in the Pop Century resort. I'm confident that you'll see them during your park touring.
There are is also a make-your-own-light-saber station and a dress-your-My-Pretty-Pony station at Once Upon a Toy, as well as fill-a-pirate-treasure-chest stations in several locations.
