Last summer, I gave you a first look at a new merchandise collection called “Hollywood Tower Hotel Authentic” that was inspired by the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror attraction at Disney Parks. Today, I’m excited to announce that this line will drop into Disney Parks starting Friday, February 13 (what a perfect day!). These new products will be found inside Tower Hotel Gifts in both Disney California Adventure park at Disneyland Resort and Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort. I recently visited the merchandise presentation offices at Disney’s Hollywood Studios where I found a display of several new items.

The merchandise presentation team set up a display to show what Tower Hotel Gifts may look like when the product is set. They told me they will be making adjustments to props, fixtures and lighting in the shops to complement the new merchandise.

Disney Design Group artists were inspired by the Haunted Mansion Authentic program released last year when designing this artwork. You will notice similar design elements such as the use of vintage advertisements. The Hollywood Tower Hotel logo was also included on several items that could have been sold in the hotel gift shop before that one stormy night long ago.

I love the tote bag that looks like vintage luggage and the bellhop cap is perfect! I was glad to see the bell was updated with new artwork (you can see the difference in this story from July 2013).

Guests will also find new apparel items for adults and kids. My son will be beyond thrilled that there will be a kid’s T-shirt with a character from his favorite episode.

In addition to apparel and other souvenirs, the Disney pin team will release some new open edition pins as part of this collection.

Finally, I invite you to meet some of the Disney Design Group artists behind this collection on Friday, February 13. This event will be held at Tower Hotel Gifts inside Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Disney Artists Tyler Dumas, Brian Blackmore, Richard Terpstra and Quynh Kimball are scheduled to attend.

  • I know they were aiming for the same idea as the Haunted Mansion line, any word on if there will be a Dooney line to go along with it like HM did? It was such a huge success with the other one just wondering if they would keep it going. Would love to see 30s/40s theme with Dooney!

  • steve- 1. i want your job so badly! 2. will the tote bag be released the 13th or on a later date?

  • I am so excited for that bellhop hat I can’t even. I still kick myself for not picking up the ToT mouse ears they had about five years ago.

  • Is any of this stuff going to make it to disneystore.com? I can’t make it to the parks, unfortunately. 🙁

    • @Brian – I do not know of plans at this time to carry these items on the Disney Parks online store.

  • Is that an actual bellhop hat?!

    • @Jonathan – It’s an actual hat and it’s amazing. 🙂

  • The wait is over 🙂 Will these be available online also?

    • @Michelle – I have not received confirmation if or when these items may be carried online.

  • What fun merchandise!! I love the Chip and Dale key chain!

  • I picked up one of the bells last fall, love it! 🙂

  • ok I NEED the bellhop hat and the mickey head shaped pin, and maybe the bell too

  • This just made my week! I cannot wait for this stuff to come out! I will probably buy most of it. It will go well with the towels, robe, bell, and mugs I have already bought!

    • @Antone – Awesome! I’m glad to hear you are just as excited as I am. 🙂

  • Loving the handbag, details are fantastic and the two pins that are just incredible are the mickey & minney with stitch biting the cord and chip and dale key holder!!! I hope they will be available online.

  • In the picture with the shirts and tote, what is above the bellhop cap?

    • @Ryan – That item is a zipper pouch.

  • Simply love the design of the bellhop mickey pin, especially the lightning strikes in his ears!

  • I love Disney merchandise that is specifically themed towards a ride, attraction, or resort. Disney’s done an excellent job with both this and the Haunted Mansion stuff, and I hope to see this expand throughout the parks.

  • In the second picture with the pilsner glass, is that a pillow in the background that will be available?

    Are the bath towels that had been available for a few years still available?

    Also, will any of this be available online?

    • @Jonathan – The pillow will also be a thing! 🙂 I only had some of the samples to photograph. I’ll have to check on the towels and robe. I thought they were getting an update. No word at this time if things will be carried online. Please stay tuned.

  • I love the new Tower of Terror merchandise. Is there any news to when the new Made with Magic Mickey Gloves will arrive in Disney parks?

    • @Jacob – The glove is due to arrive in spring. No ETA at this time.
