Halloween at Walt Disney World Resort

New Shirts with Character Arriving This Spring at Disney Parks

Mickey Mouse Character T-Shirts Arriving this Spring at Disney Parks

I recently did an exercise where I chose words to describe myself (which proved more challenging than I had anticipated!). That is probably why I found myself drawn to four new shirts arriving this Spring at Disney Parks.

Word Character T-Shirts Arriving this Spring at Disney Parks

The shirts feature outlines of Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy that are filled with words that describe their personalities. They were created by the same team that introduced the infamous Turkey Leg shirt (just wait as more great shirts are coming this year… do I smell a Dole Whip or is that a Churro?).

I think my favorite shirt is Mickey Mouse as it contains a legendary word in his ear that I used 17 times in Disney Parks Blog articles last year (yes, I counted). Once released, these shirts will be sold at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts.

Love the shirts. Going to get a Donald for my hubby. His whole casual wardrobe is Donald Duck wear. Have you ever thought of having a character personal shopper that would notify people who like a particular character that new items with that character on them will be available?And while I’m at it, is there any Daisy character merchandise in the future?

Steven, thanks for the update. I love Disney’s latest shirts for adults, but I would love it if your team updated the “What’s HapPINing” blog and Official Pin Trading website more often. Some of the items on there are so old. Please consider it. Thanks again.

Why ,almost everytime there is a Fab Five merchandise , is Pluto left out of it ??!

@Karen – Thanks for the comment. I don’t believe something like that has been considered but with the way technology constantly evolves, that could be something in the future. But how awesome would it be to have a personal shopper (after looking at my closet – I think I need one :-) I unfortunately didn’t see many new Daisy items at this time. I’m working on an article about Minnie Mouse though as there are whole new art programs featuring her coming this year.

@Chris – Words can’t describe how incredibly cool it looks. Stay tuned.

@Michael – Sounds like you are quite a fan of them! I don’t know of any plans at this time.

@Louis – Difficult to say. Typically when we introduce new art styles, we need a starting point. The developer may have only had the ability to make four shirts (based on financial plans, availabilty of space, etc). I have seen times when a program does well so additional items are added to the mix. This is happening with the Vinylmation – Nerds Rock! series this year. Two additional figures are being introduced based off the popularity of the original designs. For these shirts, I haven’t seen any Pluto art but it doesn’t mean that won’t exist in the future.

What, Still no Oswald merchandise?

 

Steven Miller on January 11th, 2012 at 12:55 pm

@Steven – Great name! :-) I have seen a few Oswald items that are coming to Disney Parks. In particular, there are a few pins and I know a shirt is coming in the Spring. I also know there have been other shirts created by the Disney Consumer Products division of The Walt Disney Company. Personally, I like my Walt Disney Treasures DVD set featuring The Adventures of Oswald the Lucky Rabbit.

I’d love a Dole Whip shirt. Dole Whip’s have been a park must-do since I was 8 years old.

LOVE THE GOOFY SHIRT! He is my absolute FAVORITE character and it’s so hard to find merchandise with just him on it. Whenever I see anything with just goofy, I have to have it. Even as I type this in my college dorm my goofy stuffed friend is sitting beside me on my bed. :) I’ll have to get this shirt next time I head to the parks! Hopefully it’ll be soon…in the meantime, keep making more goofy stuff please!!

Any “concrete” dates that these new shirts will go on sale? I “need” one of each!
