Holidays Around the World has returned to Epcot! Now through December 30, 2016, guests can discover the joyous holiday traditions of our 11 World Showcase nations. During a recent expedition to Epcot for my “Unforgettable Shopping” series, I found commemorative products to celebrate this annual holiday event.
Guests visiting Epcot this month will find a logo T-shirt, a decorative ornament, and collectible pins.
There is a limited release logo pin found throughout select merchandise shops in Epcot. This hinged pin opens to reveal one of my favorite characters, Figment. There is also a limited edition pin celebrating the ever-popular Candlelight Processional at American Gardens Theater (the pin has an edition size of 3,500).
Passholders and Disney Vacation Club Members will find two limited edition, hinged pins. The Passholder exclusive pin (above left) has an edition size of 2,000, while the Disney Vacation Club Member exclusive pin (above right) has an edition size of 1,500.
Outside The American Adventure, guests will find Santa’s Village, a collection of holiday-themed kiosks carrying Precious Moments dolls, Ne’Qwa handpainted ornaments, and seasonal products from Disney Parks.
The Christkindlmarkt in Germany Pavilion features live glass-blowing demonstrations through December 25 by master glass blower, Reinhard Herzog. Guests will also find Prost! which offers an artisan cheese plate and sauerbraten with red cabbage and spätzle.
Finally, no visit to Germany Pavilion would be complete without a stop in Karamell-Küche to pick up Werther’s Original caramel. I also found a lovely limited edition ornament in Die Weihnachts Ecke, the Christmas-themed shop adjacent to the caramel kitchen.
I hope to see you at Epcot this holiday season!
