Shopping for the perfect gift or souvenir at the Walt Disney World Resort is the best!
There is something special about finding the perfect memento to help commemorate your Disney experience! And Disney World does an amazing job when it comes to merch.
From classic Disney to souvenirs to exciting apparel to exclusive collectibles and everything in between, there is something special and magical for everyone.
And with the holidays right around the corner, now is the perfect time to start shopping. Let’s get a head start and check out these Top 5 Merchandise Shops in EPCOT!
Art of Disney
This is one of my “go-to’s” for one-of-kind collectibles and art work! This merchandise store is tucked away in the American Pavilion in Epcot’s World Showcase. However, it is actually 1 of 3 similar stores9 with locations in the Magic Kingdom and Disney Springs)!
The store boasts an awesome collection of Disney artwork and animation! Think paintings, figurines, collectibles and original animation cells. It also houses the highly- coveted Disney Classic Collection and hosts artist signings!
This shop is located at International Gateway in the World Showcase and is a great stop for souvenirs. Especially, if you are staying at the Boardwalk or heading out the rear turnstiles!
This is the perfect merchandise location for your vacation basics like cameras, drinks, and food. But it is also awesome for Epcot-exclusive souvenirs and 50th Anniversary merchandise. This gets my vote because it carries my favorite goods in a smaller and quiet location!
Recently re-opened, I find myself shopping here more and more. The modern look and contemporary design makes it easy to shop and find the perfect gift. And the best part? The variety of merchandise!
This flagship store features your favorite Epcot products and so much more! Everything from trendy apparel to popular Wishables to an amazing selection of 50th Anniversary Celebration merchandise.
It is centrally located in the World Celebration neighborhood replacing MouseGear! And afterwards, you can head over to Club Cool for a refreshing soda!
Il Bel Cristallo
It is practically impossible to narrow down the specialty boutiques in the World Showcase! Each pavilion offers something special and unique. However – there is something magical about Il Bel Cristallo. The music, the scent of the perfume, the decor- it is just perfect!
This specialty boutique is located in the Italy Pavilion. I am always greeted by smiling Cast Members ready to engage. This is the place to go to for specialty Italian goods, including porcelain, Murano glass, cologne and perfume, chic attire and more. It is perfect for Italian-inspired gifts and souvenirs!
Everything about this specialty shop in World showcase is perfect! The smells, the tastes, and of course the delicious Werther’s® Original Caramel. This is an excellent place to shop for sweet treats and take home goods.
The store features an excellent assortment of chocolate and caramel displays. So, whatever sweet treat you desire is available! Enjoy a caramel apple while exploring World Showcase or buy a bag of caramel popcorn for a perfectly sweet souvenir to enjoy at home. There are so many delicious options!
Mitsukoshi Department Store
This is not just a merchandise store, this is a retail experience! Immerse yourself in Japanese culture when you explore authentic and traditional Japanese gifts from one of Japan’s premier department stores. Everything from Japanese treats to Hello Kitty merchandise to authentic cultural apparel and houseware is available.
And even this is an understatement. It is room after room filled with awesome Japanese gifts and cultural references. It is an immersive shopping experience that is sure to delight.
There are over 60 merchandise locations throughout Epcot. And they all offer something special and unique. This is just the smallest sampling of what is available. What are your favorites?
