Disney World souvenirs aren’t exactly known for being cheap, but paying $1,000 for a lobster? That makes even a bejeweled pair of Minnie Ears look like a bargain buy!
It might seem excessive, but this isn’t your typical lobster. For starters, this isn’t even a lobster you can eat!
But this weekend in EPCOT, we found a DIFFERENT kind of lobster. One that we can’t eat. And one that costs almost as much as a Disney World Annual Pass.
Seen in the Mexico Pavilion of World Showcase, the lavish lobster is actually an intricate wooden carving! And there’s clearly a LOT of hard work and diligent detail that goes into these guys!
Made from Copal wood harvested from the hills of the Oaxacan valley, these things are the REAL deal, made by local artisans who use machetes and pocketknives to carve them into precise details and shapes.
After each lobster is shaped, it’s delicately painted with vibrant, eye-catching colors!
The colors and patterns are truly unbelievable, and dare we say worth the $1,000 price tag?!
We may need a little liquid courage from La Cava del Tequila before making the plunge, but these artsy Oaxacan wooden lobsters are some of the most stunning souvenirs we’ve seen in Disney World lately, and we gotta respect the craft!
