It wouldn’t be Walt Disney World without extensive shopping experiences and the Germany Pavilion is no exception.
Apparently in Germany they celebrate Christmas year round which is why they have a number of Christmas trees and dozens of decorations to choose from – even though we visited in September.
This is also where they have the mysterious pickle tree. Legend has it that Germans have a tradition of “hiding the pickle” and the person that finds its, presumably on the Christmas tree, receives a reword or good fortune. However this is apparently bullshit according to Wikipedia and it’s actually an American traditional dating from the 19th century. However Disney are happy to promote this bogus German tradition and further enhance this urban legend.
You can also get glass figurines and watch the glass makers actually making the items.Follow @paula_from_nz
