DH and I love shopping for dishes in the Japan Pavillion at EPCOT. They have some of the prettiest things there, it's hands down our favorite country to shop in.

I also love getting coffee mugs although we're mostly tea drinkers in our home. Magnets for the fridge too. Our girls aren't really collectors of anything so-to-speak. They pretty much get whatever strikes their fancy.


Me, BF, DD14, DD7

We bring home a dated Christmas ornament, magnet, picture frame and photo album from each trip plus whatever else catches my eye

DD16 usually comes home from each trip with a snow globe, several pins and a Minnie plush. She picks a theme for each trip and gets her items based on that theme, so on our first trip she was all about the Princess stuff... she had a Princess globe and Minnie was dressed as a Princess. The 2007 trip was Pirates, so a pirate globe, pins and Minnie in a cute Pirate outfit. You get the idea.

Dh usually gets a hat and the bills, he always says he is in bill-paying and transportation so we don't want to disappoint him He lost his favorite hat last summer so I told him we just need to go back and get him another!

We get Christmas ornaments too, but we also get a chocolate candy bar from each country at Epcot. When we get home we have a tasting party to choose our favorite. Mine is Norway. Husband likes Japan, kids like England

It's been chilly at night there my last 3 times (December) so I have always gotten a sweatshirt/pullover.

But what I really PLAN to get each year is a picture/print of an artist's drawing or painting. In 2005 it was of the Rose & Crown and in 2006 it was Bistro de Paris. In 2008 I bought a neat print of a drawing of the Haunted Mansion. They are framed around the house ... it's part of my covert WDW collection ... people just think I have neato prints on the wall ... little do they know that it's all part of my WDW obsession

I smell Norway! I love Laila...

I like to pick up a canvas bag or three for a souvie. Recently, the parks series vinylmation dealies and um, napkins.

I always take a bunch and they add up over a trip. Usually we have enough to last us until next visit...in fact, I'm using one right now as a coaster

Me too, Laila and many others. I do not buy parfumes in NY anymore, it sort of tradition to go to Epcot and get a new one. Moreover I like the idea that new parfumes in France come to Epcot first and can be bought only there for several months before anywhere else in US, love to be first in a city who has a new parfume.
