NEWS: New Disney World Annual Passholder Pop-Up Merchandise Location Now Open at EPCOT

Walt Disney World annual passholders now have a terrific reason to visit EPCOT during the week. A brand new exclusive merchandise location has opened up in the German Pavilion of World Showcase. Learn more below!


A new annual passholder Pop-Up merchandise location is now open. The store is filled with exclusive products, especially for Annual Passholders. You’ll find a variety of new passholder products including MagicBands, apparel, phone cases, and magnets.

You’ll also find some new World Showcase merchandise and heavily discounted World Showcase merchandise. For example, there is a lot of merchandise that is marked off at 50%. The great thing is that you can use your 30% annual pass discount on top of that giving you some fantastic deals!

Also, for a limited time, you’ll find a shopping bonus where if you spend at least $50, you’ll receive an annual passholder cutting board or coaster set for free.

Open weekdays, this shop is exclusively for Walt Disney World Annual Passholders. Guests that are not passholders will not be allowed to enter the store, even as a guest of a passholder. You’ll need your annual pass and your id to enter the store. When I visited Disney was instituting a virtual queue and the wait was about twenty-five minutes. Alternatively, you can wait outside the store to enter.

The Pop-Up store is open Monday – Friday from 11:30 am- Park close, October 14 through November 17 in the Germany pavilion at EPCOT World Showcase.

Epcot and World Showcase are home to some of the most popular full-service dining locations in all of Walt Disney World, and guests who spend time there can have a hard time deciding where to enjoy a meal. However, there is one location in which many guests love to visit time and time again located in the Germany Pavilion. Located in the back of the pavilion is the full-service Biergarten Restaurant which invites guests to enjoy traditional German cuisine in a lively atmosphere. The interior of the restaurant is themed to feel like a quaint village square at night with beautiful architecture, a full moon, bright street lights, and picnic-style tables. Adding to the fun of the Biergarten Restaurant are live entertainment acts that showcase German customs like an oompah band, the daily tapping of the keg, and intricate bell performance. Guests who dine at the Biergarten Restaurant for lunch or dinner can enjoy a traditional German buffet mixed with American classics and are seated at large picnic-style tables with other parties of guests.

Between the beautiful architecture, wonderful details, and bustling energy, the atmosphere of the Germany Pavilion is one of the most exciting in World Showcase.

4 – Sommerfest

Editor’s Note: During the phased reopening of Walt Disney World, Sommerfest is temporarily unavailable. 

Guests who are looking to enjoy German cuisine without a full-service meal can stop by a unique location for fast service and delicious food. The Sommerfest quick service dining location can be found in the rear of the pavilion and is always busy with guests looking to enjoy an unforgettable and informal meal. Guests who stop at the location for lunch or dinner can order up options like Nudel Gratin, Frankfurter, Bratwurst, Authentic Hand-Twisted Pretzel, and Cold Potato Salad. While the entrée options are delicious, guests should be sure to leave room for traditional German desserts like Black Forest Cake and Apple Strudel with Vanilla Sauce. In addition to the amazing food options, guests are sure to love the unique beer selection at Sommerfest including Schofferhofer Pink Grapefruit Hefeweizen, Altenmunster Oktoberfest, Konig Ludwig Weissbier, and Warsteiner Dunkel.


5 – Saint George

The center of the square in the Germany Pavilion features a beautiful fountain topped with a tall pillar. Atop the pillar is an interesting statue that actually honors a German tradition. The statue features a knight slaying a dragon and represents Saint George who legend says slayed a dragon to protect a princess. Many towns in Germany feature a likeness of Saint George as protection, and the Germany Pavilion in World Showcase is no exception. Guests who find themselves enjoying the Germany Pavilion definitely need to pause for a moment and check out Saint George.

6 – The Miniature Trains

One of the most unique details that guests can enjoy in the Germany pavilion is a miniature train set that is so beautifully detailed that guests will love it. Found just before leaving the Germany Pavilion and entering into the Italy Pavilion, the miniature train set features multiple tracks, bustling locomotives, beautiful stations, waiting passengers, and rolling hills and scenery. With such imaginative and amazing detail, guests will love to spend a few minutes simply taking in the beauty and kinetic energy of the miniature train set in the Germany Pavilion!
