Shopping at the China Pavilion at Epcot

So like Mexico and Norway previously, the China Pavilion at Epcot also has extensive shopping opportunities.  Note this will be a common theme as we move through the World Showcase.  Its Disney, they will part you from your money (or do their best to do so).

So what kinds of items can you buy here in the China Pavilion?

To start with, clothing – from t-shirts to brocade fabric type dresses, just like you would see in your nearest Chinatown.

Cutesie items like these coin purses.IMG_1210

A nice sword to cheer up the TSA perhaps?  (maybe get that one shipped…)

A display of lanterns and glowing floral arrangements….

Dragons and Buddah statutes of all shapes, sizes and materials.IMG_1213 IMG_1214 IMG_1215IMG_1217

How about a Chinese themed outfit for your dog?


And what self-respecting Chinese themed location would be complete without Panda merchandise?

But I have to say I’m a bit lost on why these other stuffed animals are here?  Perhaps large eyed leopards, elephants and strangely coloured purple dolphin type animals are native to China?

Or how about a creepy doll to take home to scare the neighbour’s children?  (actually that sounds like a good idea and I wish I’d bought one now!).

Outside the main shop is a marketplace type area with less expensive (but still Disney priced) items.


This is also where you will find the drinks cart where you can get your standard offerings or more authentic Chinese drinks (try the Lychee one!) 🙂

If you are a fan of fans, this is where you will find a nice selection of them for your own personal air-conditioning while in the hot Florida climate.  Both larger decorative ones and smaller handheld fans.

Our next stop will be Germany as I’m skipping right past the Outpost for now, that’s where all African nations are clumped into one “country”…

  2. I think that is one of the issues with World Showcase, it is just a shopping mall!
