Get Ready to Show Your Disney Side During Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort

posted on July 31st, 2015 by Michelle Harker, Manager, Merchandise Marketing & Communications, Disneyland Resort


Guys and ghouls, Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort is creeping up. It’s never too early to start planning Halloween costumes, especially if you plan to attend Mickey’s Halloween Party. Looking for inspiration? Why not your favorite Disney characters?

For your prince or princess (3–12 years of age), visit Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique in Fantasyland in Disneyland park and watch as they transform before your very eyes into Halloween Minnie, a Knight or their favorite princess. Fans of Anna, Elsa & Olaf (ages 3-15) should definitely plan a quick trip to Anna & Elsa’s Boutique in the Downtown Disney District for “cool” tips and tricks for the Halloween season. Special tip: A Mickey Mouse Pumpkin Glow Stick or Skull Glow Stick is a perfect way to light your path to Halloween adventure at home or at the Disneyland Resort!

Of course that’s not all – there’s more Halloween fun brewing. As you can see, I had some help from fellow Disney Parks Blog author Tyler Slater and Merchandise Marketing “Ghost Host” Ashley Cortez who took their roles all too seriously. So this year if you choose not to dress up, we have a few tips for you on how you can show your Disney Side. Costume T-shirts and fleece (for adults and youth) inspired by a few not-so-scary classic characters including Buzz Lightyear, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse as well an array of intergalactic-inspired apparel and accessories will help you pay Halloween homage in a frightfully fun way. Find all of these and more for the entire family at select locations throughout the Disneyland Resort this August. Tips: Attraction-inspired T-shirts also work well; as you can see, we found these “haunting” T-shirts at Port Royal. If you seek something more subtle, try new headwear on for size – it’s themed to Halloween and the perfect fit for a night of haunting fun.

Don’t forget to dress your pets! Treat your furry friends to something spook-tacular this season – by adding a little “character” to their look with our Disney Tails Collection. Even Ashley’s dog Nala couldn’t resist showing us her Disney Side in a sparkly sequin bow with her favorite Minnie Mouse shoe toy. Curious as to where they’re available? We found the entire collection at Atwater Ink & Paint on Buena Vista Street in Disney California Adventure park, but be sure to check out other locations throughout the Disneyland Resort including World of Disney Store in the Downtown Disney District.

Are you ready for Halloween? How will you show your Disney Side?

Show Your ‘Inside Out’ #DisneySide For a runDisney Race! Part V: SADNESS

posted on July 22nd, 2015 by Aubrey Hang, Sports Marketing Community Manager, runDisney


It’s common for runners to experience the “Post-Race Blues” during the weeks after a race. You’ve had so many emotions the past few months and your race is now over. You’ve experienced FEAR, DISGUST, ANGER and JOY, but now another emotion pops up that you probably weren’t expecting.

sadrun283748

If you feel SADNESS come over you, don’t be discouraged because it is normal to feel this way. It’s important to realize that every emotion is essential – and sometimes you’ll find that more than one is in control of Headquarters!

This cute shirt from the Disney Store can help cheer you up! Also, check out other items from Champion and New Balance to show your Inside Out #DisneySide.

One of the best ways to overcome Sadness is to have another finish line in your future! Sign up for e-mail updates from runDisney to know when registration opens for upcoming races. You can also follow us on Twitter @runDisney, Instagram/runDisney and Facebook.com/rundisney for up-to-date information!

The Disney•Pixar film “Inside Out” ventures inside the mind of Riley and introduces us to the Emotions that guide her – Joy, Sadness, Fear, Disgust and Anger. Based in Headquarters, the five Emotions are hard at work, led by lighthearted optimist Joy, whose mission is to make sure Riley stays happy. “Inside Out” is directed by Academy Award winner Pete Docter (“Monsters, Inc.”, “Up”) and produced by Jonas Rivera (“Up”) with an original score by Michael Giacchino (“The Incredibles,” “Ratatouille,” “Up”). “Inside Out” is in theatres now in 3D and is rated PG.

When Disneyland opened on July 17, 1955, guests arrived in their fanciest attire . . . even children were dressed to the nines. Fast forward sixty years and many of our guests still enjoy visiting the Disneyland Resort in their three-piece suits and hats, cat-eye sunglasses and pearls. So in honor of our historic opening day, Disneyland Resort guests are encouraged to help us travel back in time by wearing their favorite 1955-inspired ensembles.

Throughout the day, you will have opportunities to show your 1955 Disney Side with special photo locations and themed entertainment. So curl your hair, dust off that fedora and take your Disney Side back in time to celebrate 60 years of Disneyland!

Show Your Patriotic #DisneySide with Americana Themed Goods from Disney Parks

posted on June 30th, 2015 by Steven Miller, Merchandise Communications Manager


With the Fourth of July holiday right around the corner at Disney Parks, I recently found a few items to help guests show their patriotic Disney Side.

FOJM7474891

Our newest retail MagicBand features Mickey Mouse standing in front of an American flag. This limited release item has a retail of $24.95 and can be found in select merchandise locations throughout Walt Disney World Resort.

FOJM7474892

I adore the Fourth of July limited edition pin with Carl and Ellie from Disney•Pixar’s “Up.” This pin has an edition size of 3,500 and will be released at Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts. I also like the new, open edition Minnie Mouse bow decorated in red, white and blue.

FOJM7474893

The Graphic Apparel team introduced shirts including a tank top along with short and long sleeved options. These designs will be similar in both California and Florida with the only differences being the name of the Disney Resort destination.

Show Your Inside Out #DisneySide For a runDisney Race! Part II: DISGUST

posted on June 30th, 2015 by Aubrey Hang, Sports Marketing Community Manager, runDisney


My “Inside Out#DisneySide style series continues with DISGUST. Do I seriously have to run 20 miles over the weekend? You have to be kidding!

One of the biggest adjustments I’ve made in order to train for a runDisney race is commit to waking up early on the weekend to complete my long training run. While having to get out of bed early on a Saturday morning is initially tough, the feeling of accomplishment I get after my long run makes it all worth it.

If running long distances on a Saturday morning is a must, you might as well start the morning in an “Inside Out” inspired outfit from Champion and New Balance that is sure to keep Disgust satisfied. Follow your run up with a cup of coffee in this adorable Disney Store mug!

Show Your ‘Inside Out’ #DisneySide for a runDisney Race! Part I: FEAR

posted on June 23rd, 2015 by Aubrey Hang, Sports Marketing Community Manager, runDisney


Like many of you, I am full of emotion for the release of Disney•Pixar’s new film “Inside Out,” now in theaters in 3D. The film ventures inside the mind of Riley and introduces us to the Emotions that guide her – Joy, Sadness, Fear, Disgust and Anger. Based in Headquarters, the five Emotions are hard at work. They help guide Riley through her daily life, including any challenges that come her way.

With training underway for Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend presented by Cigna, runners can expect to go through a mix of feelings as race day approaches.

RDFEAR

For those training for an upcoming race, during the next few weeks I will share ways to show your #DisneySide by expressing the emotions featured in “Inside Out!”

I’ve trained for several runDisney races and know it can be a whirlwind of feelings. While all of our emotions are important, sometimes certain ones can take over our control center. The first emotion I felt after registering for my first marathon was FEAR. What did I get myself into? 26.2 miles? What was I thinking!

If you are feeling similarly about the adventure you are about to embark on, beginning your training might be the perfect way to overcome your fear of race day.

Here’s a look to put Fear at ease and start your training in style! There are great options from Champion, New Balance and the Disney Store!
