World Showcase is my favorite place to shop and window shop on Walt Disney World property, with unique items both from the different countries but also unique Disney themed merchandise in many of the pavilions. There have been quite a few new items lately, including at Italy. These are some of my recent favorite items, featuring Mickey and Minnie (Topolino and Topolina, their Italian names are featured throughout the merchandise). The new merchandise is in two different shops, and I really like the luggage tag and one of the shirts in La Gemma Elegante. I have prices on some of the items, including the luggage tag for $7.99.
First we stopped in La Bottega Italiana, where there were new shirts and other items (in addition to ones that have been there). Italy has a wide range of Disney themed merchandise, from shirts to glasses and housewares. This sweatshirt is $79.99.
This t-shirt is $27.99.
A lot of merchandise has “arrivederci” on it (Italian for goodbye).
Molto Bene means “very well”.
There are glasses with both Mickey and Minnie (Topolino and Topolina). These are $14.99 each.
The photo frame is $19.99.
I mentioned that there is merchandise that has been here, this is a favorite design of mine that has been here a year or two.
This is the shop for what we just looked at.
Across the way, I wasn’t expecting to find more merchandise. La Gemma Elegante is a more upscale shop and doesn’t usually have a lot of Disney items.
This time, there were shirts and other items, some with the same designs as what we just looked at.
Some items here have “arrivederci” on them with Mickey and Minnie. This is a very lightweight bag.
This is a smaller purse.
Minnie Mouse on another shirt, $27.99.
This Minnie Mouse hat was about $36.99, it is really nice with a wide brim.
This is the back of a sweatshirt, $54.99.
And the front.
This is my favorite of the apparel, more of a tank top for $39.99.
We will be showing more from Epcot this coming week!
