For many visitors to Walt Disney World, buying souvenirs can take up a big chunk of the budget and if you are looking for items with Mickey Mouse on, they are everywhere! However the World Showcase can offer some really interesting and unique items to take home that don’t scream Disney at you 🙂
Inside the Mexico pavilion, its meant to represent a night-time market in a small town plaza. Here you will find a number of places to shop. Firstly within the “market” area itself in the main courtyard. This is where you will find Oaxacan Wood Carvings. These are actually being made by artisans so it would be possible to actually watch one of these being painted (the final step) and then buy the finished item.
These are beautifully coloured animals and each one is unique. It would be difficult to choose which one to take home. I have no idea how much these cost in Mexico (the country) but I did pick up a couple here and had sticker shock, so promptly put them back down again. Definitely Disney prices!
There is also a selection of brightly painted ceramics.
Inside the small shop along the side of the plaza you will find bags, jewellery and clothing.
Back out in the courtyard again you have a small selection of piñata.
And finally, some Mexican snacks and candy. These are often good, cheap items to take home without breaking the budget.
I hope you enjoyed this short tour of the Mexico Pavilion shopping options, make sure you check out the other posts about the Mexico pavilion here and here.
Next stop, Norway!
so many great souvenirs!
So many choices, and that is just one pavilion…
Oh my gosh! I’d definitely want to bring one of those carved animals home with me 🙂
I loved them too! I’m going to keep an eye out for something like that when we are in Mexico next year.
That sounds great! Get it from the source 😀
I probably won’t buy anything anyway though – I am rubbish at shopping 🙂
