One of the most beautiful little shops located on the Piazza at Epcot's Italy has got to be the elegant little gem showcasing the art of the Venetian Mask. Brad's covered it here before in a stunning photo post. I wanted to take a closer look, and share some information about just what these exquisite pieces of functional artwork are.
One of my favorite Disney Christmas traditions can really be found all year long in the Germany Pavilion at Epcot. For may family, it began back in the 1980s when my Dad, who for some unknown reason, became a huge fan of The Pickle Tree.
One of the most beloved traditions at Walt Disney World is a stop at one of the many fantastic Character breakfasts. There are many to choose from with different styles appealing to different types of travelers.
The sale of souvenirs at Walt Disney World can be a touchy subject. Some believe that Disney simply wants to separate you from even more of what's in your wallet. Fans on message boards plan and strategize to spend as little as possible on merchandise, sometimes even pre-purchasing souvenir at home and carrying them along in their luggage. The science of marketing and impulse purchases is well in play at the Disney Parks, but bringing home souvenirs is a time honored tradition that reaches back much further back into history.
One of the most enchanting parts of the Holidays at Walt Disney World to me is the magical expression of Holidays Around the World at Epcot. Each and every World Showcase pavilion is painstakingly decorated in it's unique cultural style to celebrate the joys of season. While taking a stroll along the 1.2 mile promenade you can immerse yourself in each country's traditions surrounding the winter holidays and listen to the marvelous storytellers.
We asked our Facebook Fans what their favorite arrival day activities were and the overwhelming response was that they head right to the parks! Starting off at the Magic Kingdom or grabbing at drink around Epcot's World Showcase seem to be the most popular ways to go. However, if you're flight is scheduled to get in later at night or you experience some travel delays there are still fantastic ways to kick off your magical journey.
