Make a Splash This Summer with Fun-in-the-Sun Merchandise from Disney Parks

With the return of summer, I’m longing to visit a beach (road trip to Key West, anyone?). Fortunately, with Walt Disney World Resort in my backyard, there are plenty of places for me to cool off. I recently visited Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon, one of two Disney Water Parks in Florida, to survey some of the fun beach-themed goods offered at Disney Parks.

Singapore Sal’s is the main merchandise location at Typhoon Lagoon. Inside this shop, you will find an assortment of beach essentials such as towels, bathing suits, shirts, sandals and much more. I particularly liked the brightly colored Mickey Mouse-themed shovels and castle-shaped sand sculpting molds. They would have been nice to use the time I built a sand castle by hand on Castaway Cay while on a Disney cruise.

The location also carries underwater, one-time-use cameras; plastic cases to protect identification cards and other things from water; and Coppertone sunscreen (a must while enjoying the outdoors).

Speaking of sun protection, the headwear team recently introduced several new sun hats that utilize a special fabric from Coppertone. These hats offer an Ultraviolet Protection Factor of 50+, and block 98% of UVA and 99% of UVB rays. There are hats for children and adults, and they feature Disney characters like Mickey Mouse or the logos for Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts.

After spending a few moments outside in the warm Florida sun, I was tempted to change into a bathing suit, rent a Polar Patio at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon (or at Disney’s Blizzard Beach – I’m not picky), and spend a day “working” outside. I’m sure I could call that “work.”

Happy summer!

Hi yes. This is a little off topic Mr. Miller but I was wondering if you could give is any hints on the hidden Mickey pins for the second half of the year. Thank you

This post is a little off subject, but didn’t know how else to ask. You had said the remaining shoe ornaments would be available online today, and they never showed up. Will they still make their way online? I just got the other 13 in and they are the most adorable things EVER! I have to have the last 6! Thanks Steven!
