I recently shared details about unique shopping destinations at Epcot for Holidays Around the World. On the same day I took images for that story, I visited all 11 World Showcase pavilions to find some unique holiday gifts. This is one of my favorite articles to write each year because it helps me complete my holiday shopping (plus who doesn’t want to get paid to walk around Epcot for a few hours?). Here are some highlights from my shopping trip around the world.
Canada Pavilion – Look for Hatley pajamas for adults and kids; silver jewelry that’s made in Canada; or “Giggling Goat Soap,” which is the best name for authentic Canadian farm soap.
United Kingdom Pavilion – This pavilion is home to Twinings teas; jewelry and apparel inspired by “Downton Abbey;” and an amazing assortment of new Rose & Crown Pub products.
France Pavilion – This pavilion contains a variety of fragrances, home décor items featuring “La vache qui rit” (the Laughing Cow), chocolate truffles, and wine.
Morocco Pavilion – You can find versatile cloth handbags, shoes, decorative vases and more.
Japan Pavilion– The Japan Pavilion has a nice assortment of Bento box accessories, items for wrapping gifts in reusable cloth, wallets, and an awesome food tray for kids.
American Adventure – Find goods from American companies in Heritage Manor Gifts including penny jewelry, wines and sauces. The location also carries patriotic Tervis tumblers.
Italy Pavilion – Look for fragrance gift sets in Il Bel Cristallo, beautiful Venetian cat masks, scarves and home goods.

Will my daughter is all grown up and married and we have our first grand daughter! I reminded her of all the fun the 2 of us use to have she , said she hated it ! And what is my red head brat doing buying her Annual Pass plus water theme park tickets.she their today!
So you can never let you kids ruin the kid inside of us adults when their young. So now I will get to see my grand baby enjoy this ! Not to mention we took her to the park before she could talk
I have been to a lot of these countries, and have seen the merchandise sold there. Of course, Disney has done their due diligence, and, within the price range of the items pictured, has selected the best of the best.
Often, it’s difficult to know weather or not your are getting something of quality.
So, if you want to shop in any of those countries, save your travel money, and head to E.P.C.O.T.
You won’t be disappointed!
Is there any way to still get the Epcot 30th World Showcase shirts (there was a different one for every country). There were two I still wanted to get (UK and Norway…maybe another Canada one too) and have been having trouble finding them!
@Katie – Unfortunately, I believe those shirts have been retired. I didn’t see them during my recent visit to World Showcase.
You’re timing is perfect Steven. I’m arriving at WDW on Friday!
@Adam – Aces! I hope you have a wonderful holiday visit 🙂
