I’m happy that I’ve started my holiday shopping a little earlier than normal this year. I usually shop for gifts online, yet I still enjoy braving the crowds to find that perfect gift. When I’m looking for unique gifts, I head to Disney Parks (hello, World Showcase at Epcot!). I have an outstanding update to one unique gift item that makes shopping at Disney Parks even easier.
We introduced the Disney Parks Shopping Card and Deluxe Framed Castle Pin Set Product for $1,000 in October 2011. As a refresher, you can use this card to shop for merchandise at Disney-owned and -operated merchandise locations at Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Resort and Disney Vacation Club Resorts located in the United States.
We have enhanced the shopping card to allow certain discounts to be applied to when the card is used for merchandise purchases. Accepted discounts include, but are not limited to, Passholder merchandise discount, Disney Vacation Club discount and AAA Member discount. I cheered when I learned my Cast Member discount could also be applied. There is no discount, however, on the purchase of the actual shopping card.
When you purchase a card, you also get a Deluxe Framed Castle Pin Set that has a suggested retail value of $350*. The framed set features as many as 60 authentic Disney Pins that have been framed and double matted to create an image of Cinderella Castle. I thought the image of Santa Steven holding the set would give you an idea of its size.
To purchase the card and for a full list of terms and conditions associated with the Disney Parks Shopping Card, please visit http://www.DisneyURL.com/DisneyParksShoppingCard.
*Additional shipping and handling charges will apply. Suggested retail value of the Deluxe Framed Castle Pin Set is based on the aggregated individual retail value of the Disney pins included in the set as well as framing and matting costs. Limit two (2) purchases per guest. Subject to restrictions and change without notice.
