Concierge.com's insider take:
Despite being smack-dab in the middle of the theme park corridor, this shop in Downtown Disney's West Side lives up to its "Uncommon Gallery" billing. Orlando is all about fantasy, and the works here are definitely fantastical. Jasmine Becket-Griffith, who lives right around the corner in Celebration, Florida, creates limited-edition acrylic paintings of mermaids and fairies that will warm any preteen girl's heart. Also look for works by Tampa artist Michelle Mardis, whose large, abstract animal paintings are a Warholian take on the family pet. There's a huge selection of handblown glassworks, as well, though perhaps a bit tricky to transport home. Naturally, the shop will ship.—Terry Ward
