Beat the heat and stop on by!
What a lineup of great artists and art!!! I wish I lived closer!!!
Will any of the Pop Fusion or Bill Elias be available for purchase on the Disney website? My family and I don’t come until December but I love the art!
Dakota, there are no plans to have it online as of yet. I would recommend contacting Disney Merchandise Guest Services around the time of release and be sure to double check at the locations during your visit in December.
The Pin Trading nights pin description says that it is a Hitchhiking Ghost. Pretty sure it isn’t a pin of a Hitchhiking Ghost; that’s the infamous Hat Box Ghost.
You’re absolutely right, Justin! Good catch.
Any idea when you’ll have this sort of information for October? I’ll be visiting Oct 13th-15th from Texas!!
Josh, I’m pulling together information now from our event teams on both coasts. So hopefully I’ll have a post by mid-September for you.
What about the ‘Unleash the Villains’ event on Friday the 13th (my bday), it said somewhere that there would be limited edition merchandise for it? Will there be another post with additional info about what we can expect that day/night?
Hi Janelle! What a great day to have a birthday! It will no doubt be a memorable day for you. I’ll be honest, I do have an inkling of what’s to come as far as merchandise for Unleash the Villains, but the Villains have sworn me to secrecy. So keep an eye out on the Disney Parks Blog in the coming weeks. That’s where you’ll find it.
