An entire new selection of apparel, kitchenware, glassware, linens, decorations, and accessories is available at Volkskunst in the Germany Pavilion at EPCOT. This predominantly comprises items themed to Minnie Mouse and the edelweiss, a rare mountain flower celebrated across the Alps in Europe.
Edelweiss Hanging Wall Decoration – $29.99
The edelweiss is not the official flower of Germany, though its name is of German origin and it is commonly associated with alpine regions within the country. It is a national symbol in Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Slovenia, and Romania. Receiving an edelweiss as a gift symbolizes dedication and bravery from the giver, as mountaineers of old folklore had to climb high over rough and rugged terrain to get it.
“Edelweiss” is also a popular song inspired by the flower, written by the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical duo for “The Sound of Music.”
‘Fräulein Minnie’ Decorative Bowl – $39.99
On this red mug we see Minnie sitting in a traditional German dress, admiring some edelweiss flowers.
The back says “Fräulein Minnie” with “Eine schöne Blume” below, which means “a beautiful flower.”
‘Minnie in Deutschland’ Mug – $19.99
We see the wall hanging as part of the art this time, with Minnie’s silhouette filled with blue and edelweiss flowers. Atop it reads “Minnie in Deutschland,” which is the German way to say Germany. Below it reads “Germany” and “EPCOT World Showcase.”
The back shows Fräulein Minnie holding a bouquet of edelweiss. Line drawings of traditional German buildings are behind.
‘Minnie in Deutschland’ Apron – $34.99
This apron seems to replicate the dress we see in much of the art, with a blouse and bodice pattern atop, and a skirt below which is red with edelweiss flowers all over. Of course since this is an apron, it’s all one piece.
‘Minnie in Deutschland’ Serviette – $19.99
Even your table napkins can be Minnie-themed with these “Minnie in Deutschland” napkins, following the dress pattern once more.
‘Minnie in Deutschland’ Trivet – $14.99
This trivet can keep your counter or table from getting burns while also showing off your love for Fräulein Minnie. The front features the silhouette with edelweiss on a field of blue.
On the back we see all red with the edelweiss and some Minnie silhouettes.
‘Minnie in Deutschland’ Spatula – $14.99
That same pattern of Minnie among the line drawings of German buildings returns on the front of this spatula, which has a silicone tip and a wood handle.
On the back is the Minnie silhouette with edelweiss.
‘Fräulein Minnie’ Throw Blanket – $39.99
A throw blanket is also available in blue. “Fräulein Minnie” is written atop with “Eine schöne Blume.” On the bottom we see “Germany Pavilion” and “EPCOT World Showcase.” The left and right sides are filled with edelweiss flowers, while Minnie sits admiring one at the center.
Edelweiss Pillow – $29.99
The wall hanging pattern comes back as a pillow, complete with a bow to symbolize Minnie. The flowers are embroidered.
The back side is blank.

Unlike most items, this tank top has a light blue fabric with the Fräulein Minnie silhouette at the center.
‘Minnie in Deutschland’ Women’s Shirt – $29.99
On this shirt we see the Minnie in Deutschland art, where she’s among the line art of German buildings holding a bouquet of edelweiss. Below it reads “Germany Pavilion EPCOT World Showcase.”
‘Ich Liebe Edelweiss’ Headband – $34.99
This blue pair of ears features a red sequin bow with blue and white stripes.
Each of the ears features embroidered edelweiss.
On the outside it reads “Ich liebe Edelweiss” which means “I love edelweiss.” The outside of the band is blue while the inside lining is red.
‘Ich Liebe Edelweiss’ Zippered Pouch – $24.99

Edelweiss Key Chain – $14.99
The dark blue Fräulein Minnie silhouette makes up this keychain, complete with her red ribbon bow.
Edelweiss Tea Bag Tray – $17.99
A small tea bag tray is available which is unlike the other Fräulein Minnie silhouettes in that the interior is the red all-over edelweiss pattern rather than the dark blue pattern with more flowers.
Germany Pavilion Minnie Mouse Youth Tank Top – $21.99
A youth tank top is available for girls in white, which features Fräulein Minnie sitting among the flowers in the German countryside.
‘Ich Liebe Edelweiss’ Youth Shirt – $21.99
A red youth shirt is also available, with Fräulein Minnie’s head on the top left-hand side wearing an edelweiss crown.
A heart is at the center chest with “Ich liebe Edelweiss” written in large stylized letters. Below is faintly written “Germany Pavilion EPCOT World Showcase.”
Germany Pavilion Edelweiss Women’s Hoodie – $54.99

Snow White ‘Make Your Wishes Come True’ Shirt – $39.99
The other two apparel items we found focus on a more traditionally German set of characters — “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.” Here we see Snow White holding a bluebird on her finger in one hand and her dress in the other. To the left is written “Make your wishes come true.”
On the back we see designs of buildings here at the Germany Pavilion. The EPCOT logo is below along with stylized “Germany Pavilion.”
‘Grumpily Ever After’ Shirt – $34.99
Finally, we see a rather simple design of Grumpy akin to characters often seen in Japanese infographics. Above is written “Grumpily Ever After.”
