S’Mores Are a Treat This July at the Disneyland Resort

posted on June 29th, 2015 by Michelle Harker, Manager, Merchandise Marketing & Communications, Disneyland Resort


Fans of our S’mores gourmet apple, prepare yourselves – this summer is about to get even better as we “treat” you to a few other surprises from our candy kitchens at the Disneyland Resort! Our candy makers have come up with some new concoctions inspired by some of your favorite gourmet apple flavors. Joining the S’mores apple for the month of July will be a similarly themed (and tasty) marshmallow wand, crispy treat and bark.

The gourmet apple and marshmallow wand are dipped in caramel and milk chocolate, then carefully layered with graham crackers and toasted mini marshmallows. You’ll notice that the crispy treat is prepared almost identically, without the caramel. How could we possibly top all of that? With milk chocolate drizzle, of course!

Looking for something with a bit more “bark” than bite?

The S’mores bark is made of milk chocolate and marshmallow, topped with graham cracker pieces as well as toasted mini marshmallows.

You won’t have to “camp out” to enjoy these new treats – look for them beginning July 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.

Which one will you try first?

Celebrate the Emotions from Disney•Pixar’s ‘Inside Out’ with New Merchandise at Disney Parks

posted on June 18th, 2015 by Steven Miller, Merchandise Communications Manager


bjfids645321

Disney•Pixar’s newest original film “Inside Out” arrives in theaters on June 19. I’m looking forward to seeing it with my son who has been watching the trailers for months now. While my parents were visiting us, they bought him a few Disney Tsum Tsum featuring characters from this upcoming film. I recently visited Downtown Disney Marketplace to discover what other items were now at Disney Parks.

The small “Inside Out” assortment includes home décor, apparel, plush and toys. I love the five plush inspired by the emotions of Joy, Sadness, Anger, Disgust and Fear.

I found the Disney Tsum Tsum my parents purchased at Once Upon a Toy in Downtown Disney Marketplace in Florida. They will also be offered at World of Disney in Downtown Disney District in California.

Other items include a deluxe figurine playset, a coffee mug, and a new book titled “Sadly Ever After” by Elise Allen with illustrations by Dan Holland.

bhaduo123654

I love the packaging for the open edition six-pin set. Disney pin collectors should also look for an open edition pin with Joy and Bing Bong and a limited edition opening day pin (the latter has an edition size of 3,000).

bcjha461329

Finally, the D-Tech on Demand boutique in the Marketplace Co-Op at Downtown Disney Marketplace will also offer six different “Inside Out” designs. You can create and customize a case for the following mobile phones: iPhone 4/4S, iPhone 5/5S/5C, iPhone 6/6+, Samsung Galaxy SIII, Samsung Galaxy S4 and Samsung Galaxy S5. These new designs will be introduced at the location by June 19.

Select items will be found in a variety of merchandise locations at Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts. You can find other items from “Inside Out” online here.

Like many fans of Disney●Pixar animation, I’m looking forward to “Inside Out,” which opens in theaters Friday, June 19.

Adults and children visiting Downtown Disney District at Disneyland Resort can get a little taste of what’s to come today, Friday, June 5, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. as renowned artist, author and illustrator Dallas Clayton (“Lily the Unicorn,” “An Awesome Book!”) creates a mural, six feet tall and 12 feet long, inspired by “Inside Out” next to the AMC Theatres.

Clayton has teamed up with Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls to celebrate “Inside Out” and its depiction of emotions: Joy (voiced by Poehler), Sadness, Fear, Anger and Disgust. Producer Meredith Walker, Amy Poehler’s partner in Smart Girls, is featured in an online video inviting fans to submit their representations of these emotions. The submissions may inspire portions of the mural created by Clayton.

The completed mural will remain in Downtown Disney District as a photo location throughout the month, and photos by families and other guests can be curated on social media with #SpreadJoy and #BeEmotionalInsideOut.

New Pressed Coins Debut for the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration

posted on May 22nd, 2015 by Michelle Harker, Manager, Merchandise Marketing & Communications, Disneyland Resort


dlr1215pm

Last month, my fellow Disney Parks Blog author and friend, Shannon Swanson, got a “Penny For Your Thoughts” as she took you inside the Electromechanical Shop and behind-the-scenes of the making of coin presses at the Disneyland Resort. Shannon mentioned that I would have exciting news to share, and I do — as part of the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration, we are introducing sixty (60) new pressed coins themed to favorite attractions, icons and characters!

hdjksa654321

How can you tell which designs are being introduced for the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration? Here are a few tips to help you out!

  • Look for the special 60-D symbol which appears on the art for each new die.
  • Each coin will bear a special back-stamp that says Est. July 17 1955 – Disneyland Resort 60-D!

ncjeiopw654132

One of my favorite things is the new Pressed Coin Location Guide that features all of the presses throughout the Disneyland Resort. All of the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration pressed coins can be found by simply locating the diamond icon next to the coin image. Where can you find the pressed coin location guides? Great question — the new guides are available here on the Disney Parks Blog! Take a look at the images below or download the PDF here. You can also find printed brochures at City Hall in Disneyland park, Chamber of Commerce at Disney California Adventure park and select merchandise locations throughout the Disneyland Resort.

Tip: There is a specially designed Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration collector’s book to help you keep track of your collection.
