posted on December 27th, 2013 by Thomas Smith, Social Media Director, Disney Parks


We recently wrapped up 52-weeks of magical surprises at Disney Parks. Since January, “Limited Time Magic” has included a series of unexpected opportunities with an extra sprinkle of pixie dust at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort.

Before we begin a new year, we’ve collected some of the most popular and talked about “Limited Time Magic” experiences of 2013. Thank you to everyone who participated and shared the many kind words during the year.

As part of “Limited Time Magic” this week, I’m happy to share that merchandise featuring artwork selected by Disney fans earlier this year will be arriving at Disney Parks starting December 22, 2013.

In January, my fellow author Tom Smith shared three pieces of 2014 art for a new, small line of merchandise offerings for Disney Parks. Many fans voted for their favorite art design on the Disney Parks Blog or the official Facebook pages for Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts. After votes were tallied, I revealed the winning design in this video interview with Patty Landing, Creative Manager with Disney Design Group.

As a celebration of the final “Limited Time Magic” surprise of the year, we will offer an early debut of some of the 2014 dated items, including an adult T-shirt, ladies T-shirt, D-Tech cases for the iPhone 4/4S or iPhone 5/5S, as well as mug and a timepiece that feature the new artwork!

Look for these items beginning December 22 (while supplies last) at either the World of Disney Store in the Downtown Disney Marketplace at Walt Disney World Resort, or at the World of Disney Store in the Downtown Disney District at Disneyland Resort.

From December 27, 2013 through January 9, 2014, we will be carrying a limited number of items on the Disney Parks online store. A special deluxe print (as seen in the first image of this story) will be available online only. All online sales orders will be fulfilled within 6-8 weeks.

Posters will be available at Disney California Adventure park near Disney Animation in Hollywood Land and the United Kingdom Pavilion at Epcot.

Also next week, you can take a step back in time for a “practically perfect” photo with Mary Poppins and Bert at the same location at Disney California Adventure park. And when the wind is in the East, the pair will be dropping in at the United Kingdom Pavilion at Epcot next week for photos.
