Down in the Briar Patch

The Briar Patch gift shop is a great little store that is now often overlooked by guests thanks to the close proximity of the FastPass queue entrance. Themed around Br'er Rabbit home in the infamous briar patch, it makes for a wonderful story continuation, as only the outside can be seen while riding Splash Mountain. Set high up on the walls, we can see all of Br'er Rabbit's belongings, most of which are topped off with acorn or carrot finials.

There is also a wonderful assortment of lighting fixtures, including a particularly nice stained glass design.

I also personally enjoy the "Cast Members Only" sign used in this store. The owl bears a strong resemblance to Friend Owl in Bambi.
