A Visit to Northwest Mercantile in the Canada Pavilion at Epcot

A Visit to Northwest Mercantile in the Canada Pavilion at Epcot


I love Canada! I first visited this beautiful country when I was 10 years old. My family took a trip to Niagara Falls, where we stayed in a bed and breakfast for a few days. Since then, I’ve visited Toronto twice, and I recently took a trip to Montreal in spring 2011 (great food and great music!). The closest I get to Canada these days is World Showcase in Epcot. This week, winter has descended upon Canada Pavilion as part of Limited Time Magic. Guests can meet and take photos with some favorite Disney characters in the snow for this week only. I stopped by Canada Pavilion’s Northwest Mercantile this past weekend to see what the merchandise location had in store.

Northwest Mercantile houses a variety of Canadian-themed goods. Upon entry, I was greeted by the shop’s newest items – a selection of Canadian Native Handicrafts by Monague Native Crafts. I asked Sylvie Brumbaugh, merchandiser for World Showcase, about these new goods.

“I’m always looking for unique items for World Showcase,” said Sylvie. “When deciding on assortments that capture the essence of a particular country, we consider several things including popular marketplace trends. For the Canadian Native Handicrafts line, we have apparel, pottery and an expanded collection of dream catchers. Monague Native Crafts is a leading Canadian supplier of these items, so it’s great to carry them in the location.”

I liked some of the more unique items I found in the shop including Sasquatch Sweat soap and the ketchup-flavored potato chips. Sylvie told me some of the most popular items are the Hatley pajamas (perfect for a cold Canadian winter’s night!).

some items give a nod to the 360-degree film at the pavilion, “O Canada


My favorite things, however, give a nod to the 360-degree film at the pavilion, “O Canada.” Disney Design Group created the artwork which Sylvie applied to hats, shirts, tumblers, mugs and more. I like the simplicity of the red “Canada” shirt, while the plaid moose pattern is fun. I also saw the awesome World Showcase shirt we created for the 30th Anniversary of Epcot.

Let Agent P Take You on an Adventure Around the World at Epcot

Attention secret agents! Your mission, beginning now, is to join Agent P in Epcot’s World Showcase to help him thwart the plans of the evil Dr. Doofenshmirtz.

 Agent P’s World Showcase Adventure

The fun is all part of Agent P’s World Showcase Adventure, an interactive game that recently debuted to theme park guests and that is inspired by the popular Disney Channel series “Phineas and Ferb.” In it, guests use a F.O.N.E. (Field Operative Notifications Equipment) to scour World Showcase for clues and locate hidden evil “Inators.”

Guests can participate by picking up a F.O.N.E. at one of four Agent P kiosks around World Showcase. Look for them at the Norway and Italy pavilions, near the Odyssey bridge and International Gateway. From there, the mission leads to different pavilions in World Showcase, including Mexico, Norway, GermanyJapanFrance and the United Kingdom.

Perry the Platypus

“Guests are really responding well to the game,” said Imagineer Jonathan Ackley. “The greatest new surprise is when guests actually meet up with Perry the Platypus [a.k.a. ‘Agent P’] in person during their missions.”

Jonathan also hinted that more Agent P fun will debut later this summer.

“Doofenshmirtz is building new missions,” he said. “Also, keep an eye out for more Perry the Platypus!”
