    Whilst Disney Theme Park Merchandise hasn’t developed anything specifically for the Olympic Games, you will find an assortment of Olympic-themed items in the UK Pavilion at World Showcase.

    The Sportsman’s Shoppe, located across from the Rose & Crown Pub & Dining Room, is the appropriately themed destination for Olympic merchandise at Walt Disney World Resort.

    Sylvie Brumbaugh, Product Developer for World Showcase said “With the games taking place in London, I thought it was important to have the United Kingdom Pavilion carry some kind of merchandise to commemorate this event,” explained Sylvie. “I worked directly with the United States Olympic Committee to identify a small assortment of items including T-shirts, mugs, plush and a few other things.”

    One recognizable item Sylvie picked was a plush featuring one of the official Olympic mascots, Wenlock. According to the London 2012 games website, the mascots, Wenlock and counterpart Mandeville (who represents the Paralympic Games), were “created from the last drops of steel left over from the construction of the final support girder for the Olympic Stadium.” Sylvie selected a few different Wenlock plush, including my favorite, the Queen’s guard.

    Wenlock is also featured on a T-shirt, along with T-shirts for women and men featuring the London 2012 games logo. To round out the assortment, you will find some coffee mugs and a very small selection of pins.

    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.
    Winne the Pooh - A A Milne



    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.
