Closer Look at Disney TAG (Travel-Accessories-Gear) Arriving in March 2016

A few weeks ago, I gave you a first look at a new program of key travel essentials called Disney Travel-Accessories-Gear or Disney TAG. Today, I have some additional items to share as we prepare for their arrival in March 2016.

Disney TAG will feature both retro modern and colorful Disney character artwork. In addition to luggage tags and other souvenirs shown in the recent Disney Parks Blog Unboxed video, guests will find a product mix that is an excellent intersection of practicality and clever design.

Accessory items will include hanging toiletry bags, reusable totes, Passport wallets and jewelry organizers. I like the use of the “Mickey Mouse World” logo on several of the items as it reminds me of Walt Disney World Resort from the 1970s.

Guests will also find decorative neck pillows, including one inspired by the wallpaper from the Haunted Mansion attraction; tote bags with brightly colored silhouettes of Disney characters and icons; or home decorative items like a collapsible cup and a coffee mug.

My favorite designs, however, all have a retro travel vibe. The full-sized, printed canvas suitcase shown above appears to have visited Disney Destinations around the world.

Finally, I’m excited to share that these items will be released starting March 11 at the new Disney TAG boutique located in the Marketplace Co-Op at Disney Springs Marketplace. This boutique will be found in the space currently occupied by Zoey & Pickles, and will serve as a one-stop destination for Disney-inspired travel products.

Initially, Disney TAG items will only be found at the Marketplace Co-Op location. In the future, guests might find them at additional destinations such as Disneyland Resort or the Disney Parks online store.

Safe travels!

Comments

  • Placed an order by phone today for the full size suitcase – she said stock was very low so I have a 50/50 shot at the order being fulfilled. Fingers are crossed! The luggage comes in two sizes- 21 and 26 inch.

  • Already had a vacation planned from the 10th-13th so excited to hear I will be there on launch day :)

  • Please, please, please bring some of these goodies to Hong Kong Disneyland!

  • I love it all! Especially the suitcases! Do you know the dimensions? Looks like we might need to pick one up when we’re there in May just to hold all the new travel items I’ll want to bring home with me.

  • Thanks for the sneak preview Steven!

    Quick question — do you know if the luggage tags are open or covered tags? These days, travel experts recommend covered luggage tags to help prevent other people from getting your personal info.

  • How much will those neck pillows be? They look awesome! :)

  • Love the suitecases!!!!
    On my list to get.

  • Why only guaranteed for sale at the Marketplace Co-Op at Disney Springs in Florida?? Would be nice if these items were at least available online also through the Disney Shopping App or the online store…especially for those of us who are in California. Please reconsider offering these online… Thanks!

    • @Krista – These items will be released at a brand new boutique inside the Marketplace Co-Op first. We have done similar things for other product releases or special events.

      I didn’t want to guarantee anything as I don’t have a confirmed release date as to when or what Disney TAG items will appear on the Shop Disney Parks mobile app. Most likely, you will eventually find them online / via the app as similar things have happened for other releases.

  • These are fabulous, I really love the suitcase and neck pillows. I hope to see more designs for passport holders. These are so fun!

  • Can we find these on the Shop Disney Parks app by any chance?? Thank you!

    • @Catherine – These items will be released in March at the Marketplace Co-Op. Select items may be available via the free Shop Disney Parks mobile app. At this time, I do not have a confirmed release date when you might see them on the app.

  • Is the suitcase any specific brand? Is its a hard-shell?

    • @Ethan – The suitcase is a coated canvas and it was created especially for Disney Parks. It is not a co-branded item similar to things such as Dooney & Bourke.

  • Nice! Since we travel to WDW often, I love the idea of Disney themed travel items. I hope these are available on the app too!

    • @Mary – Once released in March, select Disney TAG items may be available via the free Shop Disney Parks mobile app. I don’t have a confirmed release date as to when that may happen.
