September is an exciting month for new merchandise at Disney Parks. In particular, our Disney Parks online store will be offering a few unique T-shirts throughout the coming weeks. Here is a breakdown of what you can expect to find online.


Last September, you may recall seeing artwork shared by my fellow author Jennifer Fickley-Baker on the Disney Parks Blog. The artwork was created by our Yellow Shoes Creative Group and featured Disney villains playing famous roles from the Haunted Mansion attraction. From September 8-14, we will be releasing Hanes Beefy-T shirts for both men and women with this artwork. We will also have an option for posters or canvas prints of these villainous images (they will measure 50-inches by 19-inches). Apparel items will ship in 4-6 weeks, while the poster and canvas prints will ship in 12-14 days. Express shipping is not available.


Ahoy! Thar be a new pirate shirt me hearties coming to the online store to celebrate Talk Like a Pirate Day on September 19. The shirts will be printed on Hanes Nano-tees for both men and kids (grey), and there will be a woman’s cut in purple. The artwork was created by Disney Design Group artist, Richard Terpstra, who was inspired by a vintage Disney postcard from the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction. Look for this shirt online for three days only – September 19-21. Savvy?


Finally, the next Disney Parks attraction poster T-shirts will be released from September 22-28. These Hanes Beefy-T shirts were also designed by Richard Terpstra and salute two former attractions at Disney Parks – Submarine Voyage at Disneyland park and, my favorite, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea in Magic Kingdom Park. Artist Sam McKim designed the original attraction poster for Disneyland park, while artist Richard Hebner adapted that design for the Magic Kingdom Park attraction.

These shirts will only be offered on the Disney Parks online store for a limited time. You can place orders starting on the aforementioned dates at


  • Has anyone gotten their t-shirts yet?
    I’m soo excited for these shirts! They are prefect to wear with halloween coming up.
    I ordered one of each of the villains. Can’t wait until they get here..
    Any updates on when?

  • These are awesome! I just ordered the “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea” shirt for my daughter. I just wish they would have come in children’s sizes, or at least an adult x-small!

  • The villain shirts are so clever! I love the Queen of Heart’s shirt.

  • No more “beefy” tees, please. Then I’d love to buy one.

    • @Spencer – Thank you for the feedback. You’ll notice that we are currently offering a few different options depending on the style of the shirt. Please know that I share your feedback with the team.

  • Disney villains shirts look great! Unfortunately no 3X size available.

  • Thanks for the heads up on the Pirate shirts! I added a note to my schedule to make sure I don’t miss it.

  • Are the 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea shirts the same material as the Fantasyland poster shirt that came out a while back? I love the shirt but the fabric is a little heavier than I thought it would be. However they did not offer that one in woman’s.

  • We are heading to the parks this Friday! Are these going to be available in the Magic Kingdom etc?

  • A 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea shirt! After all of these years, a new shirt is being released for my favorite movie of all time! So happy – thanks Disney! And I love the Pirates and Mansion shirts too! Hats off to the designers. They nailed it.

  • Why doesn’t Disney make a “Sleeping Beauty” night shirt for women? Seems they’re missing an obvious marketing opportunity. I would buy several for girlfriends & their daughters!!!!

  • Ladies Sizes TOO! Thank you Mr.Miller for listening. You are a peach!

    • @Deborah – You’re welcome! I’ll share your feedback with the team.

  • We will be in the parks in just 10 more days, but I didn’t take a chance! I ordered Captain Hook and Maleficent yesterday. Can’t wait to get them.

    • @Melissa – I hope you have an awesome trip! 🙂
