Holidays For Your Home Collection Returns to Disney Parks With New Products

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


With holiday decorations returning to Disney Parks, I’ve started thinking how I’m going to decorate my place this year. One of my favorite collections introduced last year was the nostalgic Home For Your Holidays collection. This popular line of decorative holiday items included ornaments, pillows, home goods and more. I’m happy to report that many items offered last season, including the fun vintage holiday blub necklace shown above, have returned along with some new options.


The Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe in Liberty Square at Magic Kingdom Park had several items available from this collection including the tree skirt, holiday cards and decorative apron. I also found the new assortment of gift bags that are perfect for gift giving this year.


A doorknob banner is also new this year. One side of the banner states “Joy from the World” with Mickey Mouse, while the other side features Minnie Mouse celebrating from the “Merriest Place on Earth.”


Mickey and Minnie Mouse can be found on a ceramic mug set and in a 3-inch Vinylmation figure set this year. One of the more unique items is a translucent Mickey icon ornament that lights up, illuminating the retro-styled artwork.


I’m looking forward to trying some gourmet cocoa with flavors such as Cinnamon Cookie, Candy Cane and Chocolate S’Mores.

Look for these items and more in select Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resort merchandise locations. You may also find select items on the Disney Parks online store under the “Disney’s Days of Christmas” section. Lastly, I invite you to try the free Shop Disney Parks mobile app that gives you access to thousands of products created especially for Disney Parks.

posted on November 16th, 2015 by John McClintock, Disney Public Relations

Holidays at the Disneyland Resort brings even more opportunities for play, entertainment and holiday shopping to the Downtown Disney District in Anaheim.

Olaf, the summer-loving snowman from the blockbuster Disney animated motion picture, “Frozen,” returns to sunny California to reopen his Olaf’s Frozen Ice Rink in Downtown Disney District between ESPN Zone and Earl of Sandwich. The custom-designed, 50-by-90-foot rink features colorful “Frozen”-themed décor, holiday and “Frozen”-themed music and the figure of Olaf himself overseeing the fun.

The rink will be open Monday through Thursday from 3-10 p.m.; Friday and Saturday from 2-11 p.m.; and Sunday from 2-10 p.m. Skates and helmets are provided with the admission fee.

As in holidays past at Downtown Disney District, the ice rink is surrounded by the Downtown Disney Winter Village, featuring chalets and carts offering a variety of holiday gift ideas, including Star Wars-themed items from World of Disney; magic, gags and novelties from Houdini’s Magic Shop; yo-yos and juggling kits from Duncan Yo-Yo; crystal art from Arribas Brothers; hot chocolate, snacks and desserts from Ghirardelli; personalized objects from You Name It; surfboard themed art are from Laguna Beach Surfboards; and personalized holiday ornaments from Ice-Land Workshop. A Working to Give/ACT Anaheim chalet will offer handmade holiday stockings with all proceeds going to Accelerate Change Together.

Downtown Disney District will also have a full lineup of special entertainment offerings for the holidays, including live performances by Holiday Carolers nightly December 4-25 and a 40s Jazz/Pop Vocal Group from December 25 through January 1. Appearances by Duncan Yo-Yo experts, and the Houdini Magic Shop Show are also on the schedule. Horse & Carriage rides will be offered November 27 through January 2.

And a special Downtown Disney District holiday tradition, Tuba Christmas, will take place at noon on Saturday, Dec. 19. No matter how you celebrate, Downtown Disney District will have something for you this holiday season.
