After taking a walk around the Germany Pavilion to see what’s new, we set our sights on the merchandise available.
For whatever reason, Germany is often synonymous with Christmas, and you’ll find a large assortment of holiday-related items at the first store on the left side of the Pavilion.
While the tradition of hanging a Christmas pickle did not actually originate in Germany, you can still pick up an appropriately-bedazzled version here. Finally we run into something fancy enough for me to purchase.
A lot of other ornaments and such are available:
These Mickey and friends glass ornaments made by Krebs Glas Lauscha in Germany are worth seeking out. Each will set you back about $45.
Authenticity remains a high priority for World Showcase merchandise.
Biergarten-branded stuff remains popular:
Along with some other merchandise related to beer:
And I thought I was only going to find one item in Germany to buy.
You’ll find the preceding items in the Stein Haus next to the Christmas store.
In addition to the wine, beer, and liqueur that we saw at Weinkeller, there’s a small assortment of snacks offered.
Dark chocolate with brandy.
The Germans certainly seem to be into paprika.
We’ll see some more food options shortly, but a lot of this stuff is priced lower than the small bags of Lay’s and Doritos that Disney offers at their own kiosks.
Arribas Brothers offers products here along with Swarovski and others:
Add the $9,500 Dumbo to the list.
Der Teddybär is located to the right of Sommerfest.
The Steiff Mickey Mouse is particularly cute, available here or on Shop Disney for $70.
These limited edition plush are far more expensive. Dumbo will set you back a cool $205. But it does come with the box.
Some more items available:
You might take a moment or two to look up in a lot of the stores around World Showcase. Some of the details are more subtle than others.
The candy available in Germany is largely focused on chocolate.
This was probably not the time to take a shot with just a portion of the middle row of candy bars in focus, but the Milka chocolate bars are very good.
Haribo also has quite the presence.
It’s a good alternative to the Mickey-produced stuff.
A vegan option if you want to pay 5x the money for half as many gummies.
If you have spaetzle on the mind, you can quench that thirst here. At least after bringing home the pouch and preparing it.
As the website continues to lose ground to vlogs, you can look for my upcoming YouTube series where I sip scotch and try to cook stuff from World Showcase.
I’m sure that will go well.
Some more stuff:
I’ve always wanted to buy one of these clocks. Maybe someday.
Das Kaufhaus is the first store on the right side of the Pavilion closest to the beer kiosk.
Here, you’ll find an assortment of traditional German garb mixed in with Disney’s cartoonish take:
It’s a nice assortment of items whether you’re interested in looking at some traditional clothing or perhaps something that might elicit the occasional smirk from a passerby.
Outside on the promenade, you’ll run into Glaskunst.
A variety of tiaras are available.
Most of them cost around $75.
Personalized beer steins are also available.
These are actually something I might be interested in.
There’s a nice variety of merchandise available in Germany at price points that range from $1.50 all the way up to more than $10,000. It’s worth taking some time to peruse what’s offered, even if it has to be done while sipping a Warsteiner Dunkel instead of an Altenmunster Oktoberfest.
Italy is up next.
