Are you looking for a special gift—something that you won’t find anywhere else? Well, step right into the One-of-a-Kind Shop.

You’ll always find a great selection of antique clocks, unique jewelry, 19th century objets d’art, and other treasures from past. Whether you’re a serious antique shopper or you just want to admire the style and craftsmanship of a bygone era, please take your time looking at the merchandise.

If you find an Italian music box, porcelain vase, terra cotta cherub, or carved wood statuette that you like, you’d better buy it. As the store name suggests, you might be out of luck if someone else buys it first. Your purchase is guaranteed to be an authentic antique—unless it’s labeled as a reproduction.

While you’re in the neighborhood, you might also want to visit:

  • Laffite’s Silver Shop—jewelry and other silver merchandise
  • La Boutique d’Or—if gold is more to your liking
  • Mlle. Antoinette’s Perfumerie—blend your own fragrances
  • Marche Aux Fleurs, Sacs et Mode—hats and handbags (and film and cigarettes)

The One-of-a-Kind Shop was a part of Disneyland’s New Orleans Square, which opened July 1966. Walt Disney and Victor Schiro, the mayor of the real city of New Orleans, presided over the grand opening of New Orleans Square and its shops. The idea of having an antique shop within Disneyland is said to have come from Walt Disney himself.

Walt Disney died in December 1966, just over four months before the April 1967 grand opening of the Pirates of the Caribbean, the biggest attraction of New Orleans Square and arguably still the best Disney attraction of all time.

The space previously occupied by the One-of-a-Kind Shop became Le Gourmet, a shop specializing in Disney-themed cooking and serving accessories and related items. Le Gourmet is now also gone.
