Disney Park and Resort Photo Updates
Epcot's China pavilion has offered Shanghai Disneyland merchandise for a number of months. Sometimes there are a handful of pins or similar, but today there was more than I've ever seen. Merchandise here can turn over quickly, though the prices are higher than the first-go around when pricing was very reasonable compared to what I'd expect. For example, we paid $14 each for large grand opening mugs last year, and the mug I photographed below is closer to $19. I didn't photograph prices this time around on most items, but will next visit on whatever is left. This isn't everything, there are watches that have been here for a month or so and some other items - many are in our video below.
Also, there are very few discounts available for this location. We used the Disney Visa on a $50 order last year here for 10% off. And the Birnbaum's 2018 Walt Disney World book also has a 10% off coupon for the China pavilion including merchandise.
It is a cold one here in Central Florida, bottoming out into the 30s tonight. We did head out yesterday to Disney's Hollywood Studios for a couple of hours, it had been a couple of months since we've visited during the day (we've visited quite often through the holidays at night). Here is a look around the park, including Disney Skyliner progression and concept art, along with the Miss Piggy fountain and much more.
I went to Disney's Animal Kingdom yesterday to see the newest additions to the park, Sumatran cubs Jeda and Anala. These are the first tigers ever born at Disney's Animal Kingdom, and they can be found on the Maharajah Jungle Trek. This area of the park has been one of my favorites since it first opened nearly 20 years ago, I made weekly visits in the first year to enjoy the tigers and other animals. Less than 500 of the Sumatran tigers are currently in the wild, and Disney's Animal Kingdom is part of breeding them for survival of the species. The cubs - one male and one female - are adorable and already VERY popular, especially with the parks being crowded this week. Currently they are out in the mornings until maybe 1pm or 2pm, I am not sure when that will change.
Das Kaufhaus at the Germany pavilion has moved away from being a longtime sportswear shop and is now offering German clothing and accessories including lederhosen and dirndls - much of the clothing is from Ernst Licht. The rest of this side of the Germany pavilion shops has seen changes as well. Some of the sportswear is still around but has moved. Here are photos from this past week!
Mexican Artist Carmelita Melchor Jimon Painting and Personalizing Catrinas From November 16th - 23rd at Epcot Mexico Pavilion
Mexican artist Carmelita Melchor Jimon is at Epcot's Mexico pavilion through November 23rd, 2017 with a lot of different handmade catrina figures that can be personalized for those purchasing them. She will be in Plaza de los Amigos from 11 a.m. - 6 p.m. each day. There has been a lot of interest in the Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) recently as Disney-Pixar's Coco opens in theaters next week, there is also a wonderful "Remember Me" display that opened about one month ago at the pavilion to enjoy where guests can learn about Day of the Dead, catrinas and other aspects of the holiday. Jimon is a fifth generation artist, creating the figures out of paper mache.
