Spotted! “Monorail” Kids’ Plates in Epcot’s Japan

I absolutely cannot resist a stroll through Mitsukoshi Department Store in the Japan Pavilion whenever I am in Epcot. I mean, I have to have my Pocky fix, don’t I?! And on my last stroll through the store, something caught my eye that I was SUPER excited to see!

A little background: One reader question that we get over and over again is: Where can we find those cute kids’ plates that they use at Teppan Edo?

It seems that guests think the plates look just like the front of the monorail. (Looking more closely, they may be airplanes, but there are no wings, so I’m all for the monorail theory.)

So I was so excited to share these with those of you who have been wondering!

Spotted! Fun “Disney Food” Statues at Off the Page in Disney California Adventure

One of my favorite stores to visit in Disney California Adventure is the “Off the Page” gallery located next to the Art of Animation building in the Hollywood Pictures Backlot. They always have fun items ranging from fine art, to tech gadgets, to kitchen goodies and statuettes.

On a recent visit I noticed these cute “Foodie” statues and thought it would be fun to share them on the blog.

My favorite of the statues is this Donald Duck piece with Chip and Dale behind him sneakily stealing his ice cream. The statue is pretty large, 17 inches tall, and designed by Disney artist Brian Blackmore. It’s hand painted sculpted resin and sells for $199.95.

More Disney Food Merchandise

Clearly Disney food is not only a popular topic with park guests, but also with the folks at the Disney Merchandise Department.

Mini Magical Kingdom Made of Food

While exploring in Epcot’s Mouse Gear, I happened upon these cute/creepy keychain/erasers from a series of merchandise called Mini Magical Kingdom. Several of the items appear to be anthropomorphized versions of classic Disney food items. I love the smiling monorail on the packaging – so very friendly.

The Mickey waffle seems like a happy fellow, but that Mickey Bar creature, he looks so upset. Perhaps he’s afraid of [Read more…]
