Do you know what time it is? It’s time for the next release in the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration “Decades” collection! Not too long ago, I shared the art that would appear during the celebration, but here’s your first look at some of the merchandise featuring the 1965–1974 artwork. Be sure to check out the new collection starting July 30 at select locations throughout the Disneyland Resort.

Before I go, I have a few other reminders for you. If you have been collecting the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration pressed coins, be sure to pick up the newest ones featuring the “Decades” art at World of Disney Store in the Downtown Disney District!

I know that many of you were hoping to participate in the Looking for Mickey Quest. So, I wanted to make sure to tell you that the Looking for Mickey Quest has been extended. Be sure to join in the fun today!

And because I’m on a roll, how about a sneak peek? Here’s a look at one of the final pieces of art in the “Decades” series. Is it the last one? You’re going to have to watch and see. Tip: If you are attending D23 EXPO 2015, look for a tee featuring similar art before it debuts in summer 2016.

Are you headed to the Disneyland Resort on July 17? Then you’re in luck! Our Disneyland Candy Makers have been busy preparing something special for you to enjoy. Treat yourself to this specially created Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration apple. The Mickey Mouse shaped apple has been hand-dipped in caramel, covered in white chocolate, dazzled in sanding sugar and topped delicately with a special Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration lay-on. This sparkling creation is only available for a limited time, so don’t miss out!

CBADL48868611

Now on to August! Those planning a trip (or trip back) to the Disneyland Resort will delight in the news about our gourmet treats. Our candy makers have taken one of our classic treats for a spin. The crispy is covered in chocolate, layered with mini pretzels and drizzled with peanut butter and chocolate. Looking for something sweeter? The gourmet apple and marshmallow wand have the perfect extra touch, a layer of caramel. How tempted are your taste buds?

But wait, there’s just one thing missing from these incredible treats: the gourmet bark. This carefully layered concoction is made of milk chocolate with pieces of pretzels folded in, layered with peanut butter and topped with additional pretzel bites. It’s sweet, salty and ultimately delicious.

Whether you’re planning your own Mad Tea Party or simply craving something for your sweet tooth, we’ve got exactly what you’re looking for. Find the new line of gourmet treats beginning August 1 at Candy Palace on Main Street, U.S.A., and Hunny Spot in Critter Country in Disneyland park; Trolley Treats in Disney California Adventure park; and Marceline’s Confectionery in the Downtown Disney District.

D23 EXPO 2015 Brings New Collections from ALEX AND ANI

posted on July 14th, 2015 by Michelle Harker, Manager, Merchandise Marketing & Communications, Disneyland Resort


If you’re a fan of ALEX AND ANI and you’re attending D23 EXPO 2015, August 14–16 at the Anaheim Convention Center, the Disney Dream Store is the place to be. Here’s your first look at the new collection from ALEX AND ANI that will make its debut during this year’s D23 EXPO. Up first is the Rafaelian Silver finish Celebrate Wrap created in commemoration of the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration. Featuring the word “Celebrate” in an elegant script, this magical piece is accented with metal and blue glass beads.

celdpb293847

Some of you may remember the Mickey Filigree line from D23 EXPO 2013 when it made its debut. I know I do! I still recall learning the details on how each product is manufactured in the USA from recycled materials and, of course, comes with the accompanying Mickey Mouse icon tag. They say the magic of the Mickey Filigree Wrap is in the design, and I agree. You can choose a subtle approach with a whimsical piece accented in metal beads or add a little color with the Mickey Filigree Beaded Wrap accented in metal and pink beads. Either option will no doubt bring endless joy. Look for both of these styles in Rafaelian Gold and Rafaelian Silver finishes.

mfbwdp293847

Now, the Mickey Filigree Gypsy Wrap is bound to become an instant classic. Made entirely of Mickey Filigree beads, this piece not only reminds you to believe in your dreams, but allows you to show your love for Mickey Mouse while wearing your heart on your sleeve. This style will be available in both Rafaelian Gold and Rafaelian Silver finishes.

There are so many choices. Which ALEX AND ANI pieces will make their way home with me? I’m not sure yet, but I still have time to decide.

What will you add to your collection? Let me know in the comments below.

New Pins Debut for the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration

posted on July 8th, 2015 by Michelle Harker, Manager, Merchandise Marketing & Communications, Disneyland Resort


It’s the summer of sparkle as part of the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration! So what else do I have to dazzle you with? How about pins? Each month through September new limited edition pins from the Diamond Decades series honoring favorite attractions, characters and icons from past and present will debut. I asked Merchandiser Erin Catalano how the series of twenty-three Diamond Decades pins came about, here’s what she had to say.

“Our Disney Parks see constant change and evolution; we referred to a quote from Walt Disney stating, ‘Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world’ — that single quote sparked the idea for the entire collection.”

Available July 9 will be pins themed to Jungle Cruise, “Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln,” Sleeping Beauty Castle and Storybook Land Canal Boats. Note: Edition sizes on the Diamond Decades pins vary.

DLCLRP476841

Releasing the same day will be the bi-monthly Disneyland Resort Annual Passholder pin themed to “Alice in Wonderland.” Check it out!

NAPP6464731

On July 16, the Diamond Decades collection continues to grow with limited edition pins themed to King Arthur Carrousel, Main Street, U.S.A., and the Mad Tea Party.

DLCLRP476843

Also being offered on July 16 is the final pin in the Countdown series – a limited release birthday collection logo pin, and a jumbo pin (edition size 1000).*

DLCLRP476844

Pins will be available to purchase on their release dates at the following locations:

*Tip: The Jumbo Pin will only be available to purchase at Little Green Men Store Command and Disney’s Pin Traders. The limited release birthday collection logo pin will also be available to purchase at additional locations other than those listed above, including Emporium and The Star Trader in Disneyland Park; Elias & Co. in Disney California Adventure park and World of Disney Store in the Downtown Disney District.
