Post News: New Epcot T-Shirt Line Showcases Countries of the World

Disney Merchandising has released a new line of t-shirts aimed at those fans of the beloved World Showcase in Epcot. Guests traveling the "world" can find garments highlighting favorite foods, drinks, legend, and lore.




For many, eating or "drinking around the world" has become a tradition to an Epcot visit. Now those participating in the fun can dress for the occasion. Two shirts from the new line focus on favorite food and drink items that can be commonly found during Epcot's Food & Wine Festival or at eateries residing in the various countries.


There are also shirts for kids allowing them to dress like a viking or a member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.



I think that these shirts are a great addition and unique among the generic Disney Parks merchandise that saturates the parks. Which new shirt is your favorite?

I like it. Seems like Disney merchandising has finally caught up with what the DISigners on the Creative DISigns threads here have been doing for years!

I really like the idea since that is my favorite part of the World, but I don't see a shirt here I would want to buy. Hopefully there will be more/better designs out in Feb when I'm there.

I love the different country shirts and I love the Eat and Drink Around the World Shirts. I wish they were there when we were the end of October.

Tshirts

I love the "Its a Troll World" and also the "I know a little German". I think this is a great addition to the tshirt range.

Yay!
A step in the right direction. I saw the eat/drink around the World shirts on another site today and really liked them!
I think all of these designs are an improvement over the generic stuff they have been putting out there for far too long.

I gotta get the "Drinking Around the World" shirt. Unfortunately I probably won't be back for a few years. I wish they had stuff like this back in June. It's definitely a step in the right direction.

I love the "I Know a Little German" shirt. It reminds me of the movie "Top Secret." (80's movie... staring Val Kilmer. It was one of the first movies we rented on VHS.)

Here's the quote from the movie:

Hillary Flammond: I know a little German. He's sitting over there.

I wonder if they are a little better quality too. I havent bought a tshirt at WDW since they went to the cheap, don't fit right, shrink if it gets rained on ones.

I really like the troll one. I think it is cute how they're wearing Mickey ears.
