I know where I will be almost one year from now – sitting in a movie theater with my son as the opening credits roll for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Being a long-time fan of all things Star Wars, it will be the perfect holiday gift to myself next year. I remember receiving many Star Wars-themed gifts growing up in the late 1970s (the Death Star Space Station playset was one of my favorites!). If you are looking for Star Wars holiday gifts this season, I have a few suggestions of items created especially for Disney Parks.
I love this fun holiday sweater T-shirt featuring Darth Vader, Stormtroopers and other icons (it’s perfect for winter in Florida).
The Disney Pin team released some new holiday pins including a 9-pin mystery set with Star Wars gingerbread characters.
If you are looking for toys, there are a few different options including the Starspeeder 1000 vehicle playset inspired by Star Tours – The Adventures Continue; a giant Clone Trooper found only at Disney Parks; and Disney Racers die-cast cars which make for great stocking stuffers.
I also like the Star Wars Droid Factory where you can design and build your own Astromech droid action figure. This experience is offered at Tatooine Traders in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Once Upon a Toy in Downtown Disney Marketplace in Florida, and The Star Trader in Tomorrowland at Disneyland park in California.
Speaking of the Star Tours attraction, this year marks the 25th Anniversary since the original attraction opened in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. We have created a limited edition pin commemorating the milestone anniversary that will be released in select Walt Disney World Resort merchandise locations.
We are also offering a 25th anniversary T-shirt for adults and kids on our Disney Parks online store. Visit http://www.DisneyStore.com/ParkEvents to place an order from December 15-18, 2014. Please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery of these Hanes Beefy-T shirts.
You can also find other Star Wars items online at DisneyStore.com/StarWars.
May the Holidays Be With You!
