A Special ‘Dinner & A Show’ Offer Featuring ‘La Nouba’ Makes Fall Even More Delicious at Downtown Disney

posted on September 23rd, 2014 by Darcy Clark, Marketing Manager, Downtown Disney at Walt Disney World Resort


I’ve written about La Nouba by Cirque du Soleil here on the Disney Parks Blog before. New Clowns? Covered. A backstage VIP Tour dubbed L’Experience? Check. That said, this might be my most delicious update yet …

LNO796347
On sale now, with shows starting on Tuesday, September 30, guests can purchase a special “Dinner & A Show” package that include a ticket to the 6:00 p.m. “La Nouba” show plus dinner – an entrée, dessert and non-alcoholic beverage – at one of three Downtown Disney West Side restaurants: Wolfgang Puck Café, Planet Hollywood or Splitsville Luxury Lanes. With an option to dine by 4:30 p.m. before the show, or make it a later evening with a post-performance dinner after 8:00 p.m., there’s an option for everyone.

Fall has always been my favorite time of year in Florida, and with this special offer, it’s just one more reason to love the season. Though I’ve seen the show a few times, with prices starting at just $99, I may need to see it again!

Ready to book? Click here for full offer details and to purchase.

First Look: The New Beautifully Disney Haunted Mansion Collection at Disney Parks

posted on September 22nd, 2014 by Michelle Harker, Manager, Merchandise Marketing & Communications, Disneyland Resort


Welcome, foolish mortals, to the eighth collection from Beautifully Disney. This fabulously fearful collection materializes at Disney Parks later this month. I will be your host — your ghost host — along this tour.

If you are you looking for something to awaken the spirits, channel the ethereal color waves in our mini nail polish set. The subtle shimmer brings to life colors like ‘Wall to Wall Creeps,’ ‘Hurry Back,’ ‘Doom Buddies’ and ‘Three Thumbs Up,’ while the nail appliques feature iconic symbols and characters from the Haunted Mansion. They are simply to die for. After conducting a mock color séance with the help of my good friend, Beautiful Disney fan and fellow Disney Parks Blog author, Rachel Brent, look what materialized.

The nail in the coffin for me — I mean, my pick from this collection — is the eye shadow palette and accessory case.

abaesp736253

Create the perfect neutral eye for fall with ease. The light beige ‘Tomb Sweet Tomb’ is the perfect pearlescent to use as a highlight under the brow bone. Dust ‘Find A Way Out!’ over your lid using your favorite Beautifully Disney brush before defining the crease with ‘Ghoul’s Night Out.’ Then, to line and define the eye, try the shimmering, smoky black ‘Hurry Back.’ The palette comes tucked inside a ghoulishly delightful accessory case, inspired by the famous Haunted Mansion wallpaper.

Ghouls, take note — put a little ‘life’ in your look by trying one of the colors in the mini lipstick set. Packed with paranormal pigmentation, you’ll find them chillingly colorful. The names say it all: ‘Ball & Chain,’ ‘Look Alive,’ ‘Bride & Doom’ and ‘Ghost Host.’

Halloween Time Treats at the Disneyland Resort

posted on September 19th, 2014 by Michelle Harker, Manager, Merchandise Marketing & Communications, Disneyland Resort


Here’s your first look at some of the delectable and delightfully wicked treats debuting this year as part of Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort.

Candy Corn Apple

There’s nothing “corny” about this year’s candy corn apple, which has been covered in caramel, enrobed in dark chocolate and adorned with candy corn pieces.

The delectable Bat Cake Pop is available in chocolate, vanilla or red velvet and is covered in dark chocolate and then adorned with black licorice wings and red chocolate eyes.

Mummy Crispy

Be sure to tell your Mummy about this next one! The traditional Mickey Mouse crispy treat has been laced in white chocolate, creating a mummy effect, complete with candy-coated chocolate eyes peering from underneath the bandages.

Make delicious magic with the Pumpkin Marshmallow Wand — stacked jack o’ lantern faces made with fluffy marshmallows, creamy caramel, white chocolate and orange sanding sugar.

Guys and ghouls will need to make “time” for the Haunted Mansion Clock Crispy, dipped in dark chocolate and decorated with green and white vanilla-flavored chocolate, creating the classic image of the Haunted Mansion clock.

Look for these items and more, including the October gourmet apple of the month “Dirt and Worms” at Candy Palace on Main Street, U.S.A. at Disneyland park; Trolley Treats in Disney California Adventure Park; and Marceline’s Confectionery in the Downtown Disney District.

This past July, I shared a fun video about D-Tech on Demand, one of my favorite boutiques at the newly opened Marketplace Co-Op in Downtown Disney Marketplace. This location combines rapid printing technology with great artwork to create personalized electronic accessories for guests. Today, I have great news for guests who want to add a splash of Disney to the latest technology. Beginning September 20, D-Tech on Demand will offer cases for the recently announced iPhone 6.

D-Tech on Demand now offers more than 170 different art styles for select phones. The image at the top of this story shows three iPhone 6 cases with some of my favorite new artwork.

In addition to the iPhone 6, guests can design and personalize cases for other phones including iPhone 4/4S, iPhone 5/5S, iPhone 5C, Samsung Galaxy SIII and Samsung Galaxy S4.

Coming in October, the D-Tech on Demand team will offer select iPhone 6 cases in additional Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort merchandise locations. These cases will not be offered on our Disney Parks online store at this time.

Guests should also look for iPhone 6+ cases coming to D-Tech on Demand in the Marketplace Co-Op later this fall.

In September 2013, we launched the Disney Collection by Vera Bradley at Disney Parks. Known for their stylish quilted cotton luggage, handbags and accessories, Vera Bradley has been infusing color into all aspects of women’s lives for more than 30 years. I’ve enjoyed spotting guests with bags and accessories from this collection at Disney Parks, resorts and even at airports this past year. Today, I’m happy to share that the newest color, Disney Dreaming, will be coming to Cherry Tree Lane in the Marketplace Co-Op at Downtown Disney Marketplace on September 19.

This new blue color was designed in collaboration with Disney Design Group Creative Manager Patty Landing and the design team from Vera Bradley. The color features Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse dreaming of Disney fun.

New Color for Disney Collection by Vera Bradley Coming September 19 New Color for Disney Collection by Vera Bradley Coming September 19

We will have a variety of styles available with this color including a Hipster Bag, a Zip ID Case, a Vera Bag and more. In early 2015, the team will introduce a duffle and an ultimate backpack with this color.

New Products Sailing This Fall on Disney Cruise Line

posted on September 15th, 2014 by Steven Miller, Merchandise Communications Manager


With fall arriving in just a few short weeks, I stopped by the Disney Cruise Line merchandise showroom at Disney Theme Park Merchandise headquarters in Florida. Fall is one of two times during the year when a variety of new merchandise is introduced both at Disney Parks and on Disney Cruise Line. Here is a look at some new collections you will find the next time you are sailing.

hwhwhw736991

The first program is called “Ahoy Minnie” and features a stylized Minnie Mouse in red, white and blue. The artwork was created by Disney Design Group artist Susan Foy. I like the use of the anchor and Minnie Mouse’s iconic polka-dot covered bow on several items that you can mix and match.

hwhwhw773992

Knotted nautical rope is the foundation of design for the second collection called “Mickey Knots.” This program uses Mickey Mouse’s silhouette outlined with rope on apparel and home goods. I love the coffee mug that uses rope for the handle.

hwhwhw736993

Falling into the category of “long overdue,” the team designed some Captain Mickey Mouse T-shirts. They remind me of the classic Mickey Mouse T-shirts that have been at Disney Parks for years. I love simple designs!

hwhwhw738994

The team also designed a chalkboard-inspired art program that reminded me of the artwork created for Disney Centerpiece in the Marketplace Co-Op at Downtown Disney Marketplace.

Happy Sailing!

September’s Treats are Sweetly Spook-tacular at the Disneyland Resort

posted on August 29th, 2014 by Michelle Harker, Manager, Merchandise Marketing & Communications, Disneyland Resort


Gourmet apple fans take note, September is right around the corner and next month you will find the Disneyland Resort gourmet caramel apple enrobed in sweet milk chocolate and covered in a mixture of crunchy, buttery, toffee pieces and roasted almonds. How do you top that? How about adorning it with milk chocolate drizzle? Mouthwatering and delicious, this apple will not disappoint.

I was able to “scare” up a few other details on our Halloween Time treats this year, so mark your calendars for September 12. Returning favorites include the Minnie Witch Apple, Pumpkin Seed Brittle, Pumpkin Fudge, and festive cake pops themed to creepy crawlers (spiders) and Mummy Mickey. If you’re wondering if there’s anything new, the answer is yes. Other delightfully ghoulish and tantalizing treats will make their debut during Halloween Time, so be sure to keep an eye out. Remember they are available for a limited time only, so don’t miss out!

365 (Consecutive) Days of Walt Disney World Resort Magic

posted on August 29th, 2014 by Darcy Clark, Marketing Manager, Downtown Disney at Walt Disney World Resort


When one of my Downtown Disney partners told me about Brent Dodge, an Annual Passholder who visited the four Walt Disney World Resort Theme Parks every day for 365 consecutive days, I couldn’t believe it. While I love the parks, just the idea of visiting every day while working full time has me exhausted!

TDD667854

I wanted to find out more, so I spoke with Brent myself to find out why he did it. First things first, he confessed that he hadn’t really passed through the turnstiles (or, in our new era of MyMagic+, ventured through the main entrance touch points) for a full year, “there were actually three days that I didn’t visit a park. I was on a Disney Cruise” he shared. Well, 365 days of Disney attractions, then. Consider me impressed.

TDD667855

Brent has been a Passholder since 2009, and currently carries the “Premier” pass, which also grants him access to Disneyland park. (I’d say he’s getting his money’s worth!) This Peter Pan’s Flight lover has visited the place where dreams come true since he was an infant, and when pressed for the “why” behind his latest all-year-long endeavor, he simply states, “Cause I’m a Disney nerd! If I live this close to Walt Disney World Resort, why wouldn’t I go every day? Especially when others are saving up thousands of dollars to go once in a lifetime.” Okay, he had me there.

TDD667853

The “official” milestone was reached on August 13; of the estimated 2,200 days Brent has spent at the parks over his lifetime, that day ranks among his all-time-top Disney memories. “A friend surprised me with a custom t-shirt from Disney Design-a-Tee at Downtown Disney; it features my favorite character, Scrooge McDuck. A few other friends met me at Magic Kingdom Park with signs to celebrate, and we had a great view of the parade. We got to ride Peter Pan’s Flight, followed by another beloved attraction, Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover – three times!”

I’ll admit, it does sound pretty magical. While most of my days are spent at the Downtown Disney area, now that fall is fast-approaching, I plan to spend more time following in Brent’s footsteps and enjoying all that Walt Disney World Resort has to offer.

How about you … can you imagine a daily visit to the parks?
