After enjoying our walk around the United Kingdom to get reacquainted with everything going on, we’ll focus on some of the merchandise that you can expect to find in a number of the quaint little stores that line the streets of the Pavilion.
The stores are themed well with each offering a distinct line of merchandise. About 150 pictures follow.
For example, the Toy Soldier is where you’ll find a lot of the more playful stuff, much of which is Epcot-World-Showcase branded:
Like with many of the other Pavilions that we’ve seen, Disney mixes in a considerable amount of stuff largely-unrelated to any Disney properties as we move on to the next store:
The next shop is a little Game-of-Thrones-esque with the swords, dragons, and family crests:
“Look up” is typically good advice at Walt Disney World as the various stores, queues, restaurants, rides, etc. are themed to the gills.
Sometimes I wonder how much of this sort of stuff sells. “What is the potential market for a replica of Christopher Columbus’s sword?” he says as he looks up at his wall with a replica of Christopher Columbus’s sword hanging down.
In the next store, you’ll find what may be a surprising amount of merchandise featuring the Rose & Crown:
The mugs are actually kind of sharp and it “feels” like the boxed pint glass would make a good gift. Those of you with bars at home may find some use out of that bar mat.
4 ounces? I guess you could carry ten of them.
A few more items from this side of the street:
I’m a Karabükspor guy myself. For some reason, they don’t seem to be well represented here.
Across the street is where you’ll find “The Queen’s Table,” which specializes in tea and such.
The Royal Wedding is prominently featured:
I’ve been using this bell in recent weeks whenever I jettison a blog post away from my office, not unlike Queen Elizabeth uses her buzzer in “The Crown.”
On this side of the pond, you’ll find some Mary Poppins stuff:
And Tinker Bell, which is still two words:
While shopping in the United Kingdom doesn’t get a lot of attention, the wide array of merchandise is likely to impress. The Winnie the Pooh items are particularly precious and I don’t think I’ll be able to bring enough Hangover Drops to the opening of Toy Story Land this weekend.
