    8 Outrageous Splurges at Epcot’s World Showcase

    Pearl Necklace in Japan

    World Showcase at Epcot is one of the best places to do a bit of gift shopping. With authentic items from the countries featured in each pavilion, as well as some creatively themed extras to suit the locale, you can shop around the world while strolling along the lagoon. While many items are surprisingly affordable, you’ll also find several pieces that are quite a splurge, reserved for guests willing to spend hundreds – or even thousands – of dollars on a single souvenir.

    1. Japan pearl necklace – $3,650

    Pearl Necklace in Japan

    You can have a pearl plucked from your very own hand-picked oyster in the Japan pavilion, but if you want to be sure you’re getting a great find, just splurge on a necklace with a flawless pearl already in it. This one is just $3,650, but others are on display as well if it’s not quite your style.

    2. China vase – $2,400

    Jdz Vase in China

    The vase collection in the China pavilion makes most other souvenirs from around the world look cheap. Fortunately, these price tags all include the outrageous “was” price for each item. With this in mind, the $2,400 Jdz Vase is a positive steal since it was $8,900. Other items in the collection are similarly priced (and purportedly discounted), such as the “Vase Dragon” that was $3,600 and is now $1,800, or another Jdz Vase that’s $2,200 down from $4,300.

    3. Germany cuckoo clock – $1,600

    Cuckoo Clock in Germany

    The impressive collection of Cuckoo clocks in Germany features many stunning choices. While you can get a small clock for just a few hundred dollars, a prime centerpiece like this one will cost you $1,600. The times on the clocks are staggered so if you hang out long enough, you’re sure to see at least one go off. Persistent visitors can see them all if they linger throughout the hour.

    4. Japan rocket model – $799

    Models in Japan

    In a glass case filled with Japanese cartoon characters, this rocket stands out for numerous reasons. Spanning the entire height of the case, it’s easily the largest item for sale. It also carries the heftiest price tag at nearly $800.

    5. UK sword of Robin Hood – $399

    UK Sword Display

    If you fancy yourself to be worthy of Robin Hood’s impressive accessories, you can take home the Sword of Robin Hood for just $399 from the UK pavilion. Other swords, such as Excalibur, are included in the collection as well. While this display is fairly unique, it’s not completely exclusive to Epcot, as you can find these pricey swords in Cinderella’s Castle at the Magic Kingdom as well.

    6. Germany Santa – $360

    Santa in Germany

    Add a little festive cheer to your home with this Santa figurine from Germany. He’s even holding a charming reindeer cookie cutter, which one would hope is a working accessory for the price of $360. Perhaps you’ll want to keep this holiday character on display year-round to get your money’s worth.

    7. Norway sweater – $299

    Sweater in Norway

    If you’re interested in authentic apparel from Norway, rest assured this charming zip-up sweater really is made in Norway. At nearly $300, this sweater is expensive even by Disney standards, and the shop regularly features apparel items with higher price points than this. Unfortunately, the overpowering smell of the Norwegian cologne selection may come with that sweater.

    8. Italy mask – $250

    Mask in Italy

    The stunning mask collection in Italy features face masks on sale for hundreds of dollars, like this Balocoloc Venetian mask for $250. The creations are so delicate you’re warned against touching them, lest your hand oils do permanent damage. If you want to get your paws on expensive masks, you’re not completely out of luck though. Just head to the Cirque de Soliel gift shop at Downtown Disney for other masquerade-ready finds.

    If you want to spend a little extra on an unforgettable gift from Epcot’s World Showcase, you’ll find these and many other options on hand for you.
