Every now and then we come across souvenirs in Disney World that are RIDICULOUSLY expensive. And no, we aren’t talking about those head-scratching $14 Mickey balloons that are perhaps a tad overpriced. Think instead a one-of-a-kind replica Cinderella Castle that costs a measly $37, 500, or those STUNNING hand-crafted tables we spotted at Festival of the Arts for $30,000.
We didn’t stumble across anything that was THAT expensive on our recent trip to Magic Kingdom, but the price tag on these glass bowls still made our eyes basically pop out of our head.
Uptown Jewelers is a gem (hehehe, pun intended) when it comes to stunning hand-crafted Disney souvenirs as well as higher-end accessories like jewelry and watches. While we were browsing all of those lovely items we definitely cannot afford, we found this set of glass homeware.
They caught our eye in particular because the design is a little retro and includes Hollywood Studios’ old “Earffel Tower,” along with all of the other park icons! The icons are accompanied by Mickey Mouse, palm trees, and plenty of fireworks.
We half contemplated finding a spot for these items on our shelf. And then we looked at the price tag. After that, we nearly spit out our non-existent drink. Turns out the vase (the taller of the two items) retails for $5,500, and the second, more shallow bowl retails for a modest $6,750.
Yeah…we’ll sit this one out. Even if we were interested, we would be terrified to pick it up, let alone carry it to our car and safely drive it home…let alone FLY with it in our luggage!
There’s no doubt that these are stunning works of art that if you can swing the cost would make a beautiful addition to your home! But if you need us, we can be found scoping out the latest pair of Minnie Ears or perhaps a new, cute, soft, NOT breakable stuffed animal to bring home with us instead.
