‘Limited Time Magic’ Spotlight Makes Time for Mom this Mother’s Day at Disney Parks

posted on May 10th, 2013 by Steven Miller, Merchandise Communications Manager


This week, the “Limited Time Magic” spotlight shines on timepieces from Disney Parks. My parents recently visited me in Florida for about two weeks. Before they left, we visited Downtown Disney Marketplace, as my mother was in search of a new Minnie Mouse watch. That trip helped me find a few timepieces that I thought would make for perfect Mother’s Day gifts this weekend. Here is a look at some of my favorites.

I liked the elegant look of the three watches pictured at the top of this article. These watches were recently introduced for the spring season, one of two seasons that the timepiece development team likes to introduce new items.

Good news for my mother is that Minnie Mouse is a popular character for watches, as seen here with two additional styles.

For spring, the timepiece development team enlisted the help of Disney Design Group artists to create new watches. Artist Tim Whalen created two new designs based on T-shirts from Disney Parks. You may remember seeing the shirt with the girl holding the Mickey Mouse umbrella in Michelle Stepney’s Disney Style Snapshot from early April.

Moms who love Disney Villains may enjoy three new watches created by Disney Design Group artists Mark Seppala and Darren Wilson. Mark, whom you may recall from Disney Ear Hat fame, designed the watches featuring the Queen of Hearts and the Queen from “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” while Darren created the amazing Maleficent watch.

In Florida, look for these watches at Tren-D and the World of Disney store in Downtown Disney Marketplace.

In California, you can find timepieces in the World of Disney store in the Downtown Disney District as well as the Fortuosity Shop inside Disneyland park.

Select watches can also be found on the Disney Parks online store.

Finally, to further the magic on Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 12, Disney Parks will honor all moms with a special flower when she visits any of the theme parks at Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts (please note that valid theme park admission is required).

Happy Mother’s Day to my mother and my soon-to-be mother-in-law!

Wait… is this the Limited Time Magic announcement for this week??

Maleficent!! She’s gorgeous! Are these limited? We are booked for this fall, will I find her available then? (But then I’ll have a daily decision — do I wear my artist-original Figment or Maleficent….)

@Crystal – These watches were introduced for this season. It’s difficult to say if they will be available this coming fall. If you are interested, you could contact our Merchandise Guest Services team who may be able to assist you before the trip. See this article for contact info:

There are also timepieces offered on our online store and the assortment changes often –

@Lauren – Great question! I’ll have to ask our timepiece development team.
