posted on April 18th, 2014 by Steven Miller, Merchandise Communications Manager


I’ve been visiting Walt Disney World Resort for more than 30 years. I’ve spent more than half of that time working (or playing as I like to say) as a Disney Cast Member. I’m often asked by friends and family to help with planning vacations to Disney Parks. One topic that regularly comes up during conversations is around merchandise – What are the must have things should I get during my visit? To help answer that question, I visited Magic Kingdom Park to highlight some of my favorite merchandise items in this short video.
