The Game of LIFE - Haunted Mansion 'Welcome to the After-LIFE' Disney Theme Park Edition
Hi there, I’m Michelle. As the Merchandise Marketing & Communications Project Manager for the Disneyland Resort it’s my job to find out all about our Disney Theme Park Merchandise ‘must have’ items and of course, share it with all of you, especially with the holidays right around the corner. I know we’re getting started early this year, but since holiday shopping is in full swing by November, I thought I’d give you a sneak peek at this season’s top 5 Disney Gift ideas!

5. Dress up your holidays at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique and Studio Disney 365! Experience the magic of our Disney makeovers, the perfect gift for kids and kids-at-heart. Be transformed into a princess, knight, rock star or studio star in the blink of an eye. The Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique makeovers I’ve seen done typically range from $49.95 – $205.85, while some of the Studio Disney 365 makeovers can range from $29.95 – $59.95. You’ll find more information on these experiences at or you can book your reservations by calling 714-781-STYLE.

Insider Tip: A fan favorite makeover at Studio Disney 365 is Color Cue, where you can actually choose different colored streaks to put in your hair. So ask yourself, are you ready for your close- up?

For those visiting Walt Disney World Resort – Experience the magic of The Pirates League or Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique

4. Disneyland Resort Annual Passport The Annual Passport is an ideal gift for anyone who visits the Resort more than two or three times per year … or would like to! The gift of a Disneyland Resort Annual Passport lets friends or family members celebrate throughout the year with the magic of Disneyland Resort.
