Window Shopping at Disney Parks Around the World: Meet Gelatoni and More!

posted on July 30th, 2014 by Michelle Harker, Manager, Merchandise Marketing & Communications, Disneyland Resort

Have you ever wanted to take a trip around the world to visit our Disney Parks & Resorts? Join me on a whirlwind shopping trip as we take a look at what is happening in the world of Disney Theme Park Merchandise as we continue the “Window Shopping at Disney Parks Around the World” series!

The mystery of who has been painting the art in the Mediterranean Harbor area of Tokyo Disney Sea has finally been solved. Tokyo Disneyland Resort recently introduced Gelatoni, a Disney friend of Duffy. This cool cat has an artistic flair for creating new masterpieces for all to enjoy. Our Disney fans were very eager to scoop up anything with Gelatoni on it including a tote, shopping bag, memo pad, writing pen and more. Those of you visiting the Tokyo Disneyland Resort will even find a special Gelatoni plush to add to your collection.


As you may know, Hong Kong Disneyland celebrates its 9th anniversary this year. Here’s a look at some of the commemorative merchandise that has been created in honor of this special celebration including souvenirs, apparel, memorabilia, accessories, dolls, limited edition pins and more.


This month Disneyland Paris introduces PhotoPass+ containing everything you need to access high resolution digital image files of your vacation memories. All of the photos taken by our Disney PhotoPass photographers, or on attractions equipped with Image Capture, may be linked to your PhotoPass+.

Disney PhotoPass+ App Available at Disneyland Paris

In addition, for the first time at Disney Parks, Disneyland Paris has debuted a new Disney PhotoPass App that allows you to download all of the pictures taken by our photographers and attractions photos directly to your mobile device.


Where will our next shopping trip take us? Keep watching the Disney Parks Blog to find out.

Any chance of that PhotoPass app coming to our neck of the woods? Or Gelatoni? Heck everything would be nice!

Hey Jeffrey! I’m not to sure. But should I ever find out, we will certainly update you here on the Disney Parks Blog.

I love Duffy and his friends, Shellie May, Tippy Blue, and Gelatoni! They’re so adorable, and Shellie May would be extremely popular with all the fabulous Princess and Fairies costumes you could make for her. I hope the Disney Parks merchandise team will consider giving all of these fabulous characters a passport so that they may join us in America soon!

Disney, Really wish you would bring Shellie May and Gelatoni to the USA. if not for all year how about a yearly special purchase? Pre-sell them then ship in what you need. People REALLY really want these plush characters. PLEASE!

I hope the PhotoPass app has been run through a spell-checker before being released!

When will this PhotoPass App make it’s way to Walt Disney World in Orlando?

Duffy’s friend Gelatoni is SO cute!! A Disney cat who is an artist — love it! Will Gelatoni and Shellie May become available in the states soon? They would be a wonderful edition to my Disney family :)


Michelle Harker on August 1st, 2014 at 3:16 pm

Hi Bridget! Isn’t Gelatoni adorable? As of right now, there is no plan to carry either one at the Disneyland or Walt Disney World Resort. But we will certainly keep you posted here on the Disney Parks Blog if that ever changes.


Sandra from FL on July 31st, 2014 at 11:07 pm

We adopted lots and lots of Duffy Bears! We had to adopt our ShellieMay, Tippy Blue & Gelatoni from eBay. I’d much rather get them right here in the USA!


Michelle Harker on August 1st, 2014 at 3:19 pm

Hey Sandra! It sounds like you have quite the collection! I’m so glad that you enjoy Duffy the Disney Bear and his friends.


Kathy on August 1st, 2014 at 5:43 am

Please bring Duffy’s friends to WDW! Or make it possible for us to order them. I just love that adorable Gelatoni. Wouldn’t he be really cute as a friend to Marie also?!
