… from the Disney Parks Blog comes a showcase of merchandise from one of my favorite Epcot attractions. Sure I’m biased being America, but its the animatronic sets in this show that really make the difference!
A World Showcase of Unforgettable Shopping at Epcot – The American Adventure
by Steven Miller, Merchandise Communications Manager
As part of my monthly World Showcase shopping series, I recently visited a pavilion that’s dear to my heart – The American Adventure. For most of 2003, I served as an attraction manager at the pavilion, which has one of the best shows in all of Walt Disney World Resort. During my visit, I stopped by Heritage Manor Gifts to see the newest patriotic goods.
Heritage Manor Gifts opened at The American Adventure in 1985. You can see the original pavilion prior to the shop opening in this Disney Park Blog article. Today, the location is home to a variety of gifts in shades of red, white and blue. There is also a cart along World Showcase promenade that offers a handful of products including Disney pins.
Inside the shop, I found apparel and accessories for adults including shirts, tote bags and jewelry. I love the necklaces and earrings that use one-cent coins in the designs.
Guests may also find a copy of “The Kinsey Collection: Shared Treasures of Bernard and Shirley Kinsey – Where Art and History Intersect,” a 198-page book telling the story of the African American experience from 1632-present. The book is the perfect complement to the exhibit of rare art, unique artifacts, and documents currently found in the American Heritage Gallery, “Re-Discovering America: Family Treasures from the Kinsey Collection.”
One of my favorite items in the shop is a woven tapestry with Mickey Mouse, Goofy and Donald Duck. The artwork is reminiscent of America on Parade, the special American Bicentennial parade held at Disney Parks from 1975 to 1976.
You may be able to order select items from this shop using the free Shop Disney Parks mobile app. To download, please visit DisneyWorld.com/Shop.
Here are images of additional items I found including popular Tervis tumblers, magnets, Alex & Ani bracelets and more.
