Disney’s ‘Big Hero 6’ Merchandise Lands at Disney Parks

I can’t wait to see Disney’s “Big Hero 6” when it arrives in theaters on November 7. This film is an action-packed comedy-adventure about the special friendship that forms between a high-tech, huggable robot named Baymax and a brilliant robotics prodigy named Hiro Hamada. I’ve enjoyed the trailers as the film looks like it has everything I love, especially robots! I recently visited a few merchandise locations at Disney Parks to check out new products inspired by this upcoming animated feature. Here is a look at some of my favorite items.


Similar to previous animated film releases, the Disney Theme Park Merchandise team partnered with the Disney Store to carry a few toys, plush and other items that may be found in locations outside Disney Parks. I love the Baymax plush shown at the top of this story (I want to hug him all day!).

There are other items, however, that were developed specifically for Disney Parks. They include some apparel items and a six-pin, open edition pin set.

In select merchandise locations in Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort, guests will also find a limited release, graphic MagicBand. In order to purchase this retail MagicBand, guests must present one of the following for the MagicBand to be linked to at the time of purchase: valid theme park admission, Memory Maker card or an active MagicBand.


A D-Tech on Demand case for the iPhone 5/5S will be released at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts. In the D-Tech on Demand boutique at the Marketplace Co-Op in Downtown Disney Marketplace, guests will soon find six new art designs with characters from the film. The cases shown above are for the iPhone 6, but they are also offered for iPhone 4/4S, iPhone 5/5S, iPhone 5C, Samsung Galaxy SIII and Samsung Galaxy S4 at the boutique. We will begin offering cases for iPhone 6+ and Samsung Galaxy S5 later in November at D-Tech on Demand.


Finally, there will be a limited release Vinylmation mystery series coming to Disney Parks in early November.

Once the film releases in November, I can’t wait to meet the stars of the movie, Hiro Hamada and his huggable buddy, Baymax when the film’s characters head to Disney Parks to greet their fans!


  • Already picked up the MagicBand at The Dark Room in Hollywood Studios today. Thanks Steven!

  • My daughter loves the plush Baymax and I got the action figure of him for myself. The larger figure looks pretty cool as well, I’d like to nab one of those too.

  • Do you have any idea on how long the limited release of the magic bands is? I’m gonna be there in January and I really want one. 🙂

    • @Saif – There is no end date for the limited release MagicBand. You may still find it in January.

  • Love the Pin booster set, hopefully they’ll still have them in December.

    Does annyone know when the actual Disney Parks Merchandise website is going to be updated? It hasn’t been touched since 10/6 and it’s kind of hard to plan what to buy when you can’t tell what pins and vinyls are coming out.

    • @Melanie – We may make periodic updates to the site. As a reminder, new pins are typically released on Thursdays and new Vinylmation items are released on Fridays at Disney Parks.

  • Any idea if they are going to sell the hat Tadashi Hamada wears in the movie? I Have searched the internet for it, but no luck.

    • @David – I’ve not seen any plans for that. If you find one, please let me know 🙂

  • I have been looking everywhere online for the Tadashi Hamada hat also-
    if you see anything please share!

  • Saw the movie and met Hiro and Baymax yesterday! Any idea when Disney World will be getting the Baymax light up balloons? I saw a pic of them at Disneyland. Thanks in advance!
