Time for another fun tour of the awesomeness that is Epcot’s World Showcase! I like shopping there almost as much as riding Soarin’! Today, we’re checking out more fun finds at one of my favorite stops on the trip around the World — the Germany Pavilion.
Limited Edition Beer Steins
As I headed back through the shops in Germany, I didn’t have to go very far before I found two different limited edition Disney and Epcot Beer Steins.
Resplendent in the colors of the German flag, the first stein depicts Disney characters against the background of the Germany Pavilion itself!
The design includes Mickey, Donald, and Goofy all dressed in lederhosen and playing instruments. The image is straight out of Oktoberfest!
Check out Donald’s cheeks! I didn’t know ducks HAD cheeks.
The second stein features a lighter color palette of tan, blue, and green, and depicts statuary and banners.
I love the Epcot logo and elderflower at the bottom!
The bottoms of the steins also feature the hand numbering of the painter, and are signed by the modeler.
Each of the tankards comes with a Certificate of Authenticity, which gives a brief history of the designs of the steins themselves (did you know why they had lids? I didn’t!). It also provides the number of the stein. Limited to a lot of 5,000, these are true collector’s items.
The price is a little steep for my pocketbook, but if you’re a Beer and Epcot fan these are the perfect keepsake! And given the popularity of beer stands around World Showcase, we know that there are a lot of folks who are both.
Will you be adding one of these beautiful steins to your collection during your next visit to Walt Disney World?
