If you are a fan of the new “Paint the Night” parade, which debuted as part of the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration, then keep reading because I have no doubt that you will want to add this new ear hat ornament set to your collection!
I had the chance to chat with Merchandiser Roger Dressen, who shared some details on the creation of this new collection. “‘Paint the Night’ parade is such a magical experience for our guests, with its dazzling array of color and light,” said Roger. “By creating a set of five ornaments, it allowed us to capture a variety of key moments from the nighttime spectacular as well as beloved Disney characters such as Sorcerer Mickey, Mike and Sulley, Tinker Bell, “The Little Mermaid” (Ariel and King Triton) and Belle. My favorite feature of all … they actually light up!”
This set will retail $150, plus tax, and can be found at the following locations in mid-October 2015.
Which ornament is your favorite?
Each month, Disney Theme Park Merchandise releases new items at Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resort. With the start of October, I selected a handful of my favorite new things that guests will soon find either at Disney Parks or on our Disney Parks online store. Select items may also be available using the free Shop Disney Parks mobile app (see this video for details about using the app).

Grizzly Peak Airfield takes Disney California Adventure park guests into California’s High Sierras and tells the story of the brave men and women who fight wildfires in our California forests. To create the story of Grizzly Peak Airfield, Walt Disney Imagineering turned to the experts at CAL FIRE (California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection), even visiting Hemet-Ryan Airfield in California for research. Since this is Fire Prevention Week, I thought this would be the perfect time to share this story with you here on the Disney Parks Blog.
