It’s Oktoberfest, and that means plenty of us with German roots are eating more spaetzle (some are drinking more beer) than we usually do! At Walt Disney World, we find ways to celebrate that heritage and culture at Epcot. The German pavilion has restaurants and shops with unique foods and merchandise that hard for anyone to resist. Recently, we noticed some new Oktoberfest merchandise that is bringing us lots of ”glück,” otherwise known as happiness!
You can find Mickey pretzels at any Disney Park, but if you’re looking for an authentic “bretzel” with a crunch, Epcot’s German pavilion is your best bet. Now, this pretzel can be taken home and used for years to come because it’s been made into a purse! Cute little Mickey ears on top keep that Disney feel while a Bavarian/alpine hat reminds us that this is a special bag for Oktoberfest. In fact, the back of the purse even says so in big bold letters!
If you want a whole ensemble, there’s a dirndl (traditional German dress) that pays homage to Minnie’s infamous polka dots. It comes complete with a bow at the top and a black apron around the waist. Too cute not to pair with that bag!
For those who want a nod rather than the entire outfit, the new alpine hat may be the way to go. It’s green, with a band of German flag running around the outside, not to mention there’s a pretzel with a big feather sticking out of the top! Other, simpler souvenirs are also available for purchase at the shops. These include baseball caps, mugs, and beer steins. There’s something for everyone visiting Epcot this Oktoberfest!
