Downtown Disney Info

I am trying to plan a trip to Downtown Disney. When I look on-line (Google) it says that it opens at 11:30. However on the Disney site it says it opens at 8:30. What I really need to know is what time do the shops open? I have a lunch reservation and I am hoping to get some shopping done prior to lunch. Can anyone let me know what the store hours are and what are the must do stores?

Hola arabian!
Stores do open early at 8:30am and you should not miss Earl of Sandwich, a nice white chocolate bar at Ghirardelli’s and, of course, the fabulous World of Disney store. Little ones will love T-Rex and the Lego store and grab a krispie treat at Goofy’s Candy Co.!!
