With new year just around the corner, some of the most popular products from Disney Parks are now arriving in merchandise locations emblazoned with the 2017 date on them. These special items are wonderful mementos and a great way for guests to recall when they visited Disneyland or Walt Disney World Resorts. This year, we are offering an out-of-this-world collection that has a dash of Disney magic.
Disney Design Group artists were inspired by the nighttime skies found at Disney Parks when creating this year’s cosmic-themed artwork. You’ll find patterns and colors reminiscent of distant galaxies mixed with whimsical constellations featuring Disney characters. Mickey Mouse as the Sorcerer’s Apprentice from Walt Disney’s “Fantasia” is a key Disney character found throughout the art.
For example, I love the tote bag that contains a silhouette of Cinderella Castle with a colorful nebula as a background. A similar bag was created for Disneyland Resort using artwork seen in the first image of this story.
The men’s apparel program incorporates celestial artwork in natural colors. Guests will find moon calendar-inspired items with Mickey Mouse. I love the “D Logo” with a silhouette of Sorcerer’s Apprentice Mickey used on a tumbler.
Other items include popular souvenirs such as key chains, photo albums, notebooks, toys, and calendars.
Guests who enjoy collecting or trading Disney pins will find open edition pins along with a new four-pin starter set.
My favorite pin item is the eight-pin mystery collection which has Disney characters pictured in front constellations. Each box contains two randomly selected pins.
Look for these items and much more in select merchandise locations at Disney Parks. You may also find products using the free Shop Disney Parks mobile app. To download, please visit DisneyWorld.com/Shop.
