There are many Unforgettable places to shop at Walt Disney World Resort. This month, I’m beginning a new series featuring my favorite place to shop, dine and play – World Showcase at Epcot. A new story each month throughout 2016 will highlight unique products from each of the 11 World Showcase countries. I’m starting my trek around the “World” with a visit to Canada Pavilion.


Impressive totem poles surround the entrance to the Northwest Mercantile that is home to products inspired by the diverse and rich culture of Canada. Inside, guests will find Canadian flag-inspired apparel, decorative items and more. This location also contains hockey-themed products celebrating popular Canadian teams.


Guests will also find the popular “O Canada” logo merchandise first introduced in 2012. This program includes short and long sleeved apparel, drinkware and headware. You can read more about the program in this Disney Parks Blog article from 2013.

Other favorite products include Canadian maple syrup, pajamas by Hatley, jewelry and soap from Goat Mountain Soap Company.

New this year is an updated Canada Native program that includes colorful graphics of native wildlife such as fish, moose and owls. Look carefully at each graphic to find a hidden Mickey Mouse icon included somewhere in the artwork.

Canada Pavilion also has a kiosk along World Showcase Promenade that offers additional items including personalized leather goods.


Being a long time fan of Epcot, one of my favorite things I found in the shop were the intricate and beautiful carvings. Many of these totem poles and designs have existed since World Showcase opened in 1982.

Here is an image gallery of other items I found during my visit.


  • My fiance and I got engaged at the Canada Pavilion in October. A very special place indeed!

  • Cool stuff Can’t wait to go to this store when I visit this year. You always have great pictures and information of new and exciting merchandise. I love your blogs. Thanks so much.

  • As a Canadian I completely understand why they sell NHL merchandise and I will admit in the past I bought some Maple Leafs items there, which I could not find in Toronto. However I was wondering how come they don’t sell any Toronto Blue Jays items? After all they the only MLB in Canada.

  • I am loving this new feature. I love shopping in Canada when I go to Epcot, every year. The main store that you have highlighted in your new blog is lovely but I do miss the little store that use to be open at the top of Canada by the waterfalls, full of unusual and beautiful items, any news on when it might reopen again in the future?

  • I’m excited for this series as shopping is one of my favorite things to do at Epcot. I love seeing all the unique merchandise in each of the countries. Keep up the good work!
