Holiday Shopping in Walt Disney World

Shopping for Christmas gifts in Walt Disney World is a year round activity for me. I enjoy slipping away from the group for some alone time to browse the shops or strolling and window shopping with the family, especially in The World Showcase at Christmastime. 

The decorations are beautiful with garlands, bows and lights on just about everything. The shop windows are decorated for the season too with seasonal themes and merchandise.
Perfect gifts can be found everywhere, like these "Precious Moments" Disney Princess dolls by Linda Rick (when I was there she was signing them) at Epcot in the American Pavilion for $40 each. Aren't they sweet?

For the adults on the list, German Gluhwein? I just loved the decorative bottles

One of my favorite places to shop is in the German Pavilion. The quaint little shops are a great place to browse with a stop in Karamell-Kuche, of course. The Der Teddybar shop offers Steiff bears, toy soldiers and knights, candies and German crafted dolls. I just loved this bear on the tree, not one of the famous Steiff bears. They are up high on a shelf.Do you have a Christmas Pickle on your tree? The Christmas shop, Die Weihnachts Ecke is where I found my Christmas pickle. Tradition has it that the pickle ornaments in Germany are the last ornaments parents put on the tree on Christmas Eve. The bury it deep in the tree to hide it. In the morning the lucky child who finds the pickle receives an extra gift from St. Nicholas.

  1. Great post! Those Precious Moments dolls are beautiful! I've always loved Precious Moments, but don't have anything - I'd be seriously tempted to purchase one of those dolls though! I think I need a Christmas pickle!

  2. Love this post! I wish I was shopping in the World Showcase right now. :)
