Disney Parks Blog Celebrates the 15th Anniversary of Rock 'n' Roller Coaster at Disney's Hollywood Studios

Gift Ideas for Valentine’s Day 2014 from Disney Parks

posted on January 21st, 2014 by Steven Miller, Merchandise Communications Manager


My fiancée and I were discussing Valentine’s Day the other night. I learned she really loves the holiday, which was a signal to me that I better find the perfect gift this year (no pressure, of course). To help others like me, here are a few gift ideas from Disney Parks.

There are a handful of items that were specifically developed for Valentine’s Day this year. The plush and dolls team created two 9-inch plush which, include Mickey Mouse dressed as cupid and Minnie Mouse holding a miniature Duffy the Disney Bear. They also reintroduced the popular 9-inch Duffy the Disney Bear from last Valentine’s Day.

The Disney pin trading team also created some Valentine’s Day pins this year including a limited edition WALL-E and Eve pin (which is my favorite). There is also a new open edition pin featuring Roger and Jessica Rabbit.

In the Vinylmation department, look for a limited edition, two-figure set this year. Designed by Disney artist Monty Maldovan, the set features Lady and Tramp and has an edition size of 2,000. The set will be released at the D Street locations at Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort on January 24.

Other gift ideas include the “I’ll Be Your Mickey” and “I’ll Be Your Minnie” T-shirts, which are perfect for a romantic day at Disney Parks.

I also found some lovely jewelry. You may recall that last year we introduced some awesome magnetic jewelry by designer Petra Azar (you can see her discuss her jewelry in this article by my fellow author Michelle Stepney). This year, she has some new heart shaped necklaces including a red heart necklace that will be introduced on February 14. For guests visiting Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, you can meet Petra at Tren-D in the Downtown Disney Marketplace during the afternoons on February 14-15, 2014.

Finally, I think some of the best gifts are ones from the heart. Since I love photography, I thought a nice gift would be a frame complete with a photograph from a recent visit to Disney Parks (in my case, a photograph from Buena Vista Street at Disney California Adventure park).

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I have the same Epcot Center trinket box! LOVE, LOVE vintage Epcot Center merchandise!!

 

Steven Miller on January 22nd, 2014 at 4:09 pm

@Noreen – Right on! That image is from my office. I have a few EPCOT Center things in my workspace. Glad to know another retro EPCOT Center fan :)

Jeffrey on January 21st, 2014 at 10:07 pm

The frame is nice, but where can I get that Light Cycle?

 

Steven Miller on January 22nd, 2014 at 4:11 pm

@Jeffrey – I’ll have to put you on The Grid! That Light Cycle is actually from a birthday cake that my fiancee made for me a few years ago. It looked like the Grid and it was awesome!

Matt on January 21st, 2014 at 11:21 pm

When will the pin be available or is it already available at WDW? I couldn’t find it on the Online store.

 

Steven Miller on January 22nd, 2014 at 4:18 pm

@Matt – I’m unsure which pin you are referencing. If you mean the WALL-E and Eve pin, it is currently at Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts. The item number is 400008169509.

The best places to check at Walt Disney World Resort is Disney’s Pin Traders at Downtown Disney Marketplace or Pin Central in Epcot. For Disneyland Resort, I would visit Westward Ho or Little Green Men Store Command at Disneyland park. I would also try Disney’s Pin Traders at Downtown Disney District.

Unfortunately, the other pins are also not offered online. Here are their item numbers just in case you contact Merchandise Guest Services:

Jessica and Roger – 400008179614
Mickey Mouse – “I Love You” – 400007622616
Mickey Hand With Heart – 400004626501

Susie on January 22nd, 2014 at 1:53 am

I absolutely love the “love” necklace and the heart with bow earrings. I need to try to find those so I can wear them on Valentines day or better yet convince my hubby to get them for my birthday with is in a few days…..

Marla on January 22nd, 2014 at 1:43 pm

Would love to get my boyfriend the pin set for Valentine’s Day! He’s been wanting to start collecting. Any idea where I can find it?? Thank you!

 

Steven Miller on January 22nd, 2014 at 4:21 pm

@Marla – Glad to hear of your interest. Those are actually four individual pins. I shared some details about with Matt (#7). I would check Disney’s Pin Traders first. They have the biggest assortment of pins to jumpstart a collection.

Alice on January 22nd, 2014 at 5:29 pm

Love the gift ideas, expecially the jewelry. Will there be a wedding vow renewal ceremony at Cinderella’s Castle Court on Valentine’s Day this year? We are celebrating our 48th anniversary on Feb 14th and will be at WDW that week.

 

Steven Miller on January 24th, 2014 at 9:52 am

@Alice – I’ve not heard of any plans for a ceremony. Congratulations on 48 years! I wish you many more filled with happiness, laughter and love :)

Kristin on January 25th, 2014 at 10:16 am

All I have to say is please PLEASE keep up with the new Duffy merchandise. He is my favorite and I love that I am starting to be able to get more stuff here in the states and at the parks instead of having to get it from Japan (though most of the good stuff for Duffy is still only in Japan ;) )

Matthew on January 29th, 2014 at 9:43 pm

Hi Steven, is it possible to see more of the Valentines Dayexclusive merchandise and a run-down of any special events Disney is planning for the holiday? My SO and I will be flying down for the weekend for a special trip and are too excited for words! Thank you!
