If we’re being honest, we here at DFB really love old-school EPCOT.
Those were the good ol’ days of Universe of Energy, World of Motion, and the OG Figment attraction, Journey Into Imagination. With the EPCOT transformation coming in the near future, we’ve been feeling really nostalgic for the park that we loved in the 80s and 90s! If you’re like us and just can’t seem to let go (or you know someone else who can’t), then we’ve got the perfect holiday gift guide for you!
First up on our list are these Spaceship Earth Print Leggings! Featuring a Spaceship Earth print with the iconic nighttime color scheme, these pants remind us of all the late nights we spent in the park.
These would be great to wear on your next EPCOT trip, or simply to lounge around your house and reminisce on old trips to Disney World. Either way, you’ll look cute and feel nice and comfy for only $12.99.
If you get the Spaceship Earth leggings, we’ve got just the thing to match it — this Grand And Miraculous Spaceship Tee from the DFB store! It comes in several styles: sweatshirts, tees, tanks, and hoodies.
The shirt starts at $21.99 for adults and $18.99 for kids. Your whole family can match for photos and rep your favorite classic EPCOT attraction at the same time! While you’re at it, make sure to check out the rest of our shirt collection — we’ve got some really awesome designs!
If you love Disney Park history as much as we do (we adore looking back at old park photos), then this next gift will be right up your alley. This book is called Walt Disney’s Epcot Center: Creating the New World of Tomorrow. It offers a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of EPCOT!
In order to make the park we love a reality, there was a lot of planning involved, including studying technological developments and world cultures (to get the World Showcase just right). You can learn all about the process for $22.25 with a hardcover copy of this book.
If you’ve been reading this post so far thinking, “But where’s the Figment merch?!” Then don’t worry, we’ve got you! We couldn’t make a post about EPCOT Center without including its unofficial mascot. And, we’ve got something SUPER retro for you — this Figment Slap Bracelet MagicBand!
Figment on a slap bracelet, what could be more old-school than that? We’ve spotted this fun accessory in the Disney Parks before, but it’s also available for purchase online. Cute AND practical? That’s a great gift for $24.99!
If you liked the MagicBand, then you’re going to love this DFB tank! With song lyrics from “One Little Spark” and Figment’s signature colors in a rainbow shape, this shirt will bring back memories of how great the Imagination Pavilion used to be!
You can snag the tank for $26.99, but if you like the print, you can also grab it in a different style. You can thank us later for getting this song stuck in your head all day! (It’s so catchy!)
When we first spotted this next gift in the parks, we knew that we HAD to have it — it’s a Spaceship Earth Tumbler that GLOWS! Not only does the Spaceship Earth-shaped lid light up, but it also changes color!
We originally found it at Mouse Gear in EPCOT, but you can also shop this cup online for $24.99. It’s also got that awesome park logo on the side!
The next gift idea is a double throwback because it’s these EPCOT Future World Viewmaster 3D Images! Do you guys remember Viewmaster? It was a fun little toy that looked like weird-shaped goggles and you’d load a reel into the top of the goggles to view photos. If you still have a Viewmaster, then you can get these awesome vintage pictures from EPCOT’s Future World!
You can buy this particular set for $45.95, or you can get this set of World Showcase reels for $31.95. This would be a great way to introduce your kids to two classics from your childhood at once!
Do you have lots of childhood memories of singing fruits and vegetables? Then this shirt may be just what you need! The 1982 Kitchen Kabaret Tour shirt memorializes one of EPCOT’s long-gone attractions.
For $22, you can show off your pride for knowing all the words to “Veggie Veggie, Fruit Fruit” 26 years after the attraction’s closing. You’ll earn some serious points with us if you do!
If you never quite got all the Frozen hype and you’re still a little bitter about Maelstrom getting replaced in EPCOT’s Norway pavilion, then you can sip your coffee in peace with this “Never Forget” mug.
Even though merch for this lost attraction is scarce, Disney did release a set of limited edition attraction posters earlier this year that included Maelstrom. With one of those and this mug for $14.99, you truly won’t forget your many trips to Norway (Norway in EPCOT, that is).
And last, but certainly not least, is our very own line of retro EPCOT face masks! Modeled after the logos of various pavilions and attractions, these are a great way to stay safe while showing your love for old-school EPCOT!
We’ve got masks for The Land, Spaceship Earth, the Imagination Pavilion, World of Motion, and Horizons. (You can check them all out here!) Each mask is $14.99, and $1 from every sale is donated to a nonprofit to feed children in need. You can donate to charity and look fabulous in EPCOT at the same time!
With all this nostalgic EPCOT merchandise, we either cured your blues or made you miss the 80s and 90s even more! Hopefully, something on this list will be just right for the retro Disney fan in your life! Make sure to follow along with DFB as we share more holiday gift guides to celebrate the season!
