Happy Holidays, Disney fans!

It’s been another great year filled with events, releases, promotions and so much more. Thank you for sharing the ride with me.

For those who have things “wrapped” or buttoned up for the holidays, I commend you. You would think as the shopping queen out here, I’d be a little further ahead but that’s not the case. So for all of you doing last-minute shopping like me, here are a few things you may want to consider.

Vintage Buena Vista Street Holiday Merchandise – Here’s a look at the art which appears on a variety of items including tees, fleece, ornaments, mugs, greeting cards, tapestry throws and more. Find them at Elias & Co. and Trolley Treats in Disney California Adventure park.

Disney California Adventure Park Artwork Available for the Holidays

A few weeks ago I shared some of our holiday gear for Cars Land. If you haven’t made a pit stop at Radiator Springs Curios, don’t wait much longer – folks are racing for it.

Minnie & Mickey in Love Seatbeltbag from HARVEYS, Available at Disneyland Resort

New for the season from our friends at HARVEYS is the Minnie & Mickey in Love seatbeltbag collection. Buckle up and head over to Disney Vault 28 and the Fortuosity Shop and get ready for a great ride.

Sweet Holiday Treats Available at Disneyland Resort Sweet Holiday Treats Available at Disneyland Resort

Next on the list… A sweet Holiday treat, maybe? Then you’re in luck. Candy Palace, Marceline’s Confectionery and of course, Trolley Treats are filled with goodies for anyone with a sweet tooth. Holiday cupcakes, apples, peppermint break up and fudge are high on the list, but the true hidden gem this season is the gourmet marshmallows, flavored to peppermint and egg nog. Take this from a girl who isn’t typically a fan of egg nog … It’s incredible! Now, we can’t forget the famous candy canes made by our talented team of candy makers, that alone is a true holiday treat to watch.

Fellow Disney Parks Blog author Steven Miller recently shared some of this year’s best holiday deals and stocking stuffers tips. If you haven’t had the time to check out his post yet, be sure to set some time aside.

Wondering how you can find out more about other “must have” holiday gifts and deals? Well those currently following @Disneyland, @WaltDisneyWorld and @DisneyParks on Twitter know the trick, because we are right in the middle of our 25 Days of Tweets which offers a different gift item or holiday idea each day. How do you find these tweets? Simply look for #GiftDisney.

So get shopping, get wrapping, watch movies, sing carols, bake cookies and just enjoy the holiday time with your loved ones. After all, isn’t that what it’s all about?

Have a safe and happy holiday and I’ll see you here next year with a lot more exciting merchandise news to share!

  • Michelle, Thank you so much for looking into it for me! I called Merchandise Guest Services Team and they were able to track down an ornament, so I blindly ordered it knowing it will be adorable. They mentioned that almost everything is sold out, including the mug! But, I am really interested(I collect Disney mugs). Is it possible more merchandise will be in stock before Christmas since it is still early? I hope so!

    • Nicolette, that’s great news. Sorry about that. I have no doubt that you will love it. I don’t know that they will bring any additional quantities in prior to the holidays, but will certainly keep you posted if I see them.

  • Michele: I actually love the snowman marshmallow. They are SOOOO cute with their little chocolate Mickey ears. But, yes, the lemon is super yummy, and I want to try the watermelon soon. I love how it looks like a piece of….well…..watermelon. And now I HAVE to try the egg nog too. Well done!!

  • Me again! Also, is there anywhere to find pics of the Vintage Buena Vista Street Holiday Merchandise. I would love to see what the ornament and mug look like. Thanks again!

  • Hello, I would love, love to purchase some of the Vintage Buena Vista Street Holiday Merchandise!!! What is the SKU for the mug and ornament? I was just at DCA Park and didn’t see this…I love it. Please, I would love to get some items! Thanks.

    • Nicolette, I’m trying to find the sku information for you. I can tell you that the items are available at Elias & Co on Buena Vista Street. Unfortunately I don’t have any items available to take pictures of, if I did, I would definitely post them for you. Envision very classic looks for both the mug and the ornament, with this art wrapping around it, in a sense.

  • Hi. Is there any way to get an ornament that was sold this past March (2012) at Disneyland? We bought one while there on spring break and broke it before it got on the tree. I’ve looked all over the various Disney sites. I don’t want to go to Ebay!



    • Holli! Have you tried contacting our Merchandise Guest Services team? If not, inquire with them at 877-560-6477. If they are the glass ornaments that were reminscent of Buena Vista Street they are probably called the Annual Passholder Commemorative Collection. They are still available to purchase at Embarcadero Gifts and Off the Page in Disney California Adventure park, as well.

  • I used to not like marshmallows, but started getting the gourmet marshmallows and marshmallow treats at the parks and have rediscovered how great they are. Now I can’t wait to see what new marshmallow treat you have. Thank you!

    • Dinah, aren’t they amazing? What’s your favorite? Mine is still lucious lemon, but I would have to say the egg nog one is pretty high up on the list as well.
