There are so many great things for July, but before I go, I just want to remind you of a couple of things.

June 29: The launch date for the next collection from Beautifully Disney, titled Unlock the Spell, is official! Fellow author Erin Catalano will be sharing all of the details about this special release, including a special mini-makeover experience taking place from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. at Disney Vault 28 in the Downtown Disney District. Learn more here.

June 30: A little birdie told me the new name for the exhibit opening in The Disney Gallery on Main Street, U.S.A., is “Tiki, Tiki, Tiki Realms, Celebrating 50 Years of Enchantment.” So make sure you fly by to see the newest pieces on display from Walt Disney Imagineering, as well as a selection of original and limited-edition artwork from Disney-inspired artists. You may recall that the Disneyana Shop closed its doors a couple of months ago; however, it has made its way down the street and will be taking up residence in the Bank of Main Street Building on July 1.

Summer is flying by, so be sure to stop by for some fun in the sun and enjoy all that is being offered at the Disneyland Resort!

It’s Hip and Happening at WonderGround Gallery in the Downtown Disney District at Disneyland Resort

posted on May 9th, 2013 by Michelle Harker, Manager, Merchandise Marketing & Communications, Disneyland Resort


I know there are a lot of Disney fans out there, not to mention Hipsters, who fell in love with the Hipster Mickey art by Jerrod Maruyama when it first made the scene in June 2012 with the opening of WonderGround Gallery in the Downtown Disney District. Surely, you remember this cool guy? If you don’t, here’s another look:
Hipster Mickey at WonderGround Gallery in the Downtown Disney District at Disneyland Resort
I don’t think I need to define Hipster to you, do I? I mean seriously, how not-cool would that be? Instead, if you considered yourself a fan of the original Hipster Mickey piece, then wait until you see what’s around the corner.

Launching July 18, 2013, is the first in a series of collectible Hipster Mickey inspired pieces that will release every three months. The first piece titled “Happiest Hipster on Earth” finds Mickey Mouse looking effortlessly cool as he chills in front of old-school retro-inspired Disneyland ticket media and signage. Look for the image to appear on a miniature gallery wrapped canvas, limited edition giclee, deluxe print, t-shirt and more.

So how can you be one of the first people to add this to your Hipster collection? Take part in a special Cocktail Reception on Thursday, July 18, 2013, from 7-10 p.m. The festivities will include light hors d’oeuvres, specialty drinks, in-store shopping experience to be the first to view and purchase merchandise from the “Happiest Hipster on Earth” collection, an artist signing opportunity with Jerrod Maruyama, a commemorative gift and more. In addition, those that attend the event will not only get a sneak peek at the next image in the series, but will also have the chance to purchase a special Hipster Mickey piece.

I bet you’re curious what other icons and attractions Hipster Mickey will appear in front of … so am I.

If you are determined to get this new Hipster Mickey piece before everyone else, tickets for the event will go on sale Tuesday, May 21, 2013, at 11 a.m. (Pacific) via ArtofDisneyParks.com. Tickets are extremely limited. So be sure to score a pair as soon as it goes live.

Who’s going with me?

New HARVEYS Seatbeltbags Come Together Like ‘Patchwork’ at Disney Parks

posted on April 23rd, 2013 by Michelle Harker, Manager, Merchandise Marketing & Communications, Disneyland Resort


Looking for a special gift for yourself or someone else? Then do I have a tip for you. The team from HARVEYS has just given us the first look at one of their newest HARVEYS for Disney Couture Seatbeltbag collections, titled “Disney Patchwork.”

New HARVEYS for Disney Couture 'Disney Patchwork' Seatbeltbag

While I could probably go on for days about these bags, and how this particular collection came to be, I think HARVEYS owner and creator Dana Harvey sums it up best: “Patchwork is a mashup of all of our favorite Disney prints. When woven together it creates a colorful patchwork quilt effect. The quintessential Disney bag.”

Not sure? Check out this image of the dangle that will appear on the bag.

Dangle That Will Appear on New HARVEYS for Disney Couture 'Disney Patchwork' Seatbeltbags

There will be several different Patchwork silhouettes available. Look for this new collection to debut mid-to-late May at the following locations at the Disneyland Resort: Disney Vault 28 in the Downtown Disney District, Fortuosity Shop in Disneyland park, Elias & Co. and Gone Hollywood in Disney California Adventure park. At the Walt Disney World Resort you will find them at Tren-D in the Downtown Disney Marketplace, Uptown Jewelers in Magic Kingdom Park, Summer Lace at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa as well as On the Boardwalk at Disney’s Boardwalk. Prices range from $114 to $178.

How many of the designs do you recognize? Or have?
