The 45th Anniversary of Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World Resort is only a few months away. You may recall seeing a preview of commemorative products in a recent Disney Parks Blog Unboxed video. Today, I have another look at specially designed merchandise celebrating this milestone anniversary.

The Magic Kingdom 45th Anniversary assortment contains a variety of apparel items for adults including short and long-sleeved shirts. I particularly like the lounge pants covered with logos from attractions that have opened at Magic Kingdom Park since 1971.

Guests will also find two Dooney & Bourke handbags that will each contain a 45th Anniversary leather hangtag. The pattern pairs Mickey Mouse with other attraction icons and characters such as Madame Leota from The Haunted Mansion, a bird from Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room, and Dumbo.

There are several unique souvenirs for this celebration including a 1000-piece puzzle, a light-up ear hat ornament, an antenna topper, and a pennant with candy.

The arts and collectibles team is releasing two limited edition coins – a 39mm commemorative copper coin that is presented in a custom acrylic display; and a silver plated coin in a box. Both coins will feature the Magic Kingdom 45th anniversary artwork.

Speaking of things to collect, guests who enjoy trading pins will find a handful of new designs. There will be a mystery pin set containing eight different pins (each box contains two randomly selected pins). We will also release several open edition logo pins, a lanyard medal, and a commemorative pin for Passholders.

Look for these items and more this fall in select merchandise locations at Walt Disney World Resort. Once released, you may find select items available via the Shop Disney Parks app. I’ll have one more article on the Disney Parks Blog in September about 45th Anniversary products.

Which item is your favorite?

  • Why 45th anniversary of Magic Kingdom? Why not 45th WDW ? I have items for 20th, 25th and 30th anniversary of of Walt Disney World ! Just curious, Thank you.

  • Seems like a strange question BUT do I have to be in Disneyworld to purchase items? Does anyone know of an app or site to buy Park Pins? I live in NY and never get any pins unless friends are visiting Disney ( sometimes I get older ones on Ebay). I am a D23 Gold member but that doesn’t really mean much except getting the magazine unless I someday can get to the convention.

  • Does anyone know if a 45th anniversary vinylmation will be included with this merchandise?? Please say yes!!

  • My husband and I were married in Oct of 71. We went to Disney in Florida for our honeymoon.

  • These all look fantastic! I can’t wait to pick them up!
    Do you know if they are going to have any special merchandise that will be released on Oct 1st for the anniversary date? I was there on the 50th and 60th for Disneyland and they had several limited items only on that date.
    Thanks!!

  • Hi Steven! Any chance they may choose to do an RSP Merchandise Event for the 45th Anniversary items, similar to what they did for the Disneyland 60th? That would be so great, and so much less stressful! 🙂

  • I was (coincidentally) at MK on 1 Oct 2011 for the 40th anniversary and received a free celebration button/pin when I entered the park!! This year I will make it a point to be there on 1 October to celebrate the anniversary and pick up the passholder exclusive pins and a couple of the other commemorative items!! 🙂

  • Cant wait. We are heading to Orlando for 2 weeks and plan on visiting the Magic Kingdom on the 1st of October. Really looking forward to it and if a special pandora charm is released for this celebration then I think I might just buy it. 🙂

  • We are coming down from December 6th to the 14th to celebrate our 43rd Wedding Anniversary and our 35th trip to Disney World. My wife already pointed out the Handbag and Christmas Ornaments as coming home with her. No kids, no Grandkids for this trip. Just Mom and I:) We can’t wait. Please keep the info coming:)

  • I would like to know how much the Dooney & Bourkes are going for. I love those purses.
    I just love everything Disney.

  • Yay!!! As a Florida Passholder we will be celebrating 45 years of WDW and 45 years of marriage Can’t wait to pick out our Anniversary gifts!!! Thanks for sharing,

    • @Brenda – Wow!! Congratulations. I wish you many more years filled with happiness and love.

  • How long is WDW going to celebrate their 45th Anniversary??? I remember being there for their 15th (April 1987) and it awesome ~ people were winning prizes just for walking through the gates 🙂

    • @Patty – Typically, a logo program such as this collection would be carried for a year. Availability of items is subject to change throughout the year.

  • We’ll be there Nov 29 – Dec 11, hope some items will be available then. Will they be online?

    • @Christine – I hope you have a fantastic trip! Once these items are released, you may find select products available via the Shop Disney Parks app. To download the free app, please visit http://www.DisneyWorld.com/Shop.

  • I will be there Sept 21-28, I hope these are available when I am there.

  • Will there be a Christmas ornament made for the 45th anniversary?!?!

    • @Kerry – The ornament is pictured above. It’s the ear hat-shaped ornament that lights up.

  • My family and I will be there in December to celebrate my 40th birthday. Can’t wait to get my hands on some of these goodies. Couple questions. Will there be more designs and styles for Dooney and Bourke bags? And do you know if there will be any anniversary watches? My husband and I own a pair of 40th anniversary watches and we’re hoping to get another pairs. Thanks for keeping us updated!!!

  • I am a precious moment figurine and Pandora charm collector. The diamond celebration at Disneyland had merchandise in these categories. We WDW also have these items?

    • @Denise – Please stay tuned 🙂

  • We will be At Disney World September 30 – October 2 to do a double celebration. Celebrating fiance Tony’s birthday (he had a stroke 2 years ago) and on October 1st we are celebrating our 10th anniversary ! Tony got us reservation at Cinderella’s Royal Table for our anniversary ! We are celebrating his birthday at the Coral Reef. Magic Kingdom will be 45 EPCOT will be 34 and we will be 10 !

    • @Susan – I’m so happy for you! Double congratulations to you both!! Thank you for choosing to celebrate with us 🙂

  • Will there be a birthday celebration at the MK on Oct. 1st? We are taking a short trip September 29-October 4 and we’re not planning to be at the MK that day. We will change our plans/park hop if there’s a special celebration or give-away. We will be back for two weeks in December. I assume the merchandise will still be in stores at that time, we’ll be driving and be able to bring more souvenirs than when we fly! Anxious to see how the women’s shirts look & fit.

    • @Stacey – I’m not really involved with anything that may happen at Magic Kingdom that day. I’m only focused on merchandise. I’ll have a follow up story in September that may give some additional merchandise details as we get closer to October 1.

  • YAY! I’ll be there for 2 weeks (Oct 27- Nov 10) to celebrate my bday (last week of 39, first week of 40 😉 ). Will need the shirt, the pins and maybe the Dooney!

    • @Heather – Welcome to Club 40 – it’s great 🙂 Hope you have a fantastic trip!

  • I’m sad 🙁 Our trip is Sept 12-21…I hope these items are released a bit earlier.

    • @Lisa – Stay tuned in September for additional details. If you miss them during you trip, you may have select items shipped to your home using the free Shop Disney Parks app. To download, please visit http://www.DisneyWorld.com/Shop. I hope you have a wonderful trip in September. The great news is the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival will start during your visit. It’s my favorite annual event 🙂

  • Can not wait for the antenna topper! I LOVE these!! I also hope that they have a jeweled ear hat pin to match the previous years.

  • Ohh!!! Love these! We’ll be there in November so better start saving now for more souvenirs! And if this is what the 45th looks like, can’t wait to see what the 50th anniversary merchandise will look like!!! Great article!!

    • @Marie – Thank you! Have a fantastic visit in November – it’s a wonderful time of year to be in Florida!

  • Can’t wait. I share a birthday with magic Kingdom and although I’m not as old yet I can’t wait to celebrate when we get there on Oct 29.

    • @Jennifer – Happy early birthday! Glad to hear you’ll be celebrating with us.

  • Will these items be available at Disneyland also or just Walt Disney World?

    • @Donna – These items will be released at Walt Disney World Resort. Once released, you may find select items using the free Shop Disney Parks app. To download, please visit http://www.DisneyWorld.com/Shop.

  • I really need that Dooney and Bourke bag. Do you know when they will be available? I’ll be in WDW in October.

    • @Anne – Stay tuned for a follow up article in September with additional details.

  • while on the subject of anniversaries &
    not to be tacky but just wondering if there will be any items honoring Walt Disney this yr

    • @Susan – I’ve not see specific items created for Walt Disney’s birthday this year.

  • All these items look great! Looking forward to ordering at least a few of them. Keep us posted. Thanks for a great article!

    • @Colby – You’re welcome!

  • How lon will 45th Anniversay merchandise going to be available for??

    • @Christine – Products will be released this fall in select locations at Walt Disney World Resort. These logo items were planned to celebrate the 45th Anniversary of Magic Kingdom which typically runs for a year. Availability of a particular item is subject to change.

  • I love the dark blue mug and the long sleeve shirt. My wife is an avid Disney Pin Collector, so we will be looking for pins during our October Visit.

  • Come out with a good 45th Haunted Mansion license plate and I’m in!! I have the old DOOMBUGY license plate (metal), but it has started peeling, so I need a replacement. They are no longer made.

  • Forgot one…what about a snowglobe??

  • We were married 45 years ago this November and will be spending our anniversary at the Grand Floridian. Can’t wait to get some of the 45th anniversary items from Disney.

    • @Martha – Congratulations! I wish you another 45 years and more filled with happiness and love 🙂

  • Looks great cannot wait will be there Sept.28 – Oct.5!!! Any word on any of the celebrations for this or if there will be one? Thank you

    • @Nicholas – How wonderful! I hope you have a great trip. The actual anniversary of Magic Kingdom Park is October 1. That’s about all I know right now. Safe travels!

  • Any chance of a special Pandora charm?

    • @Carolyn – Stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog in September. I’ll include any products not featured in this story 🙂

  • Are these going to only be available in October? Or will some of the merchandise still be available in the park as late as Thanksgiving?

    • @Scott – This collection is a logo program which means many of the items should be carried throughout the upcoming year. Availability of a particular item may vary based on popularity with guests. You may also find select items via the Shop Disney Parks app once items are released at Walt Disney World (just in case you aren’t visiting us until November :).

  • Hi Steven

    Any chance they’ll be a 45th Magic Band? Also will any of the merchandise sold before the anniversary like Disneyland did for the 60th?

    • @Matthew – I’ll have a follow up story in September that will contain any additional items not featured in this article. Please stay tuned 🙂

  • I love the dark blue mug! I’ll be looking for that this fall in the Parks 🙂

  • Love all the merchandise, especially the Dooneys. Any chance we will see Park 15 Vinylmations released, possibly for the 45th anniversary? Thank you!

    • @Andrea – Great question. I’ll have one more article in September about the 45th Anniversary collection. If I find any Vinylmation, I’ll include them in that article.

  • Pins! I just hope the distribution system will be different this year. Transportation to MK from TTS didn’t run until an hour after the bracelet distribution began for the 40th. People were actually walking to MK from the TTS. The CMs at TTS had no idea about the bracelet distribution. Even with a bracelet, I stood in line for nearly two hours outside in the sun. See you on October 1!

    • @Denny – Nice last name. Thank you for your feedback. I’ll have one more story in September about 45th Anniversary items. I’ll include any release details in that story.

  • Steve,

    What will be the cost of the Dooney’s in this release?
    What are all the available styles?
    Will this be a park exclusive, available in the park app, or online in general?

    Thanks

    • @Deric – The shopper tote is $248 and the Crossbody is $198. Please note that all retails are subject to change without notice. There are only two styles being released for the 45th Anniversary collection. I don’t have final release details available at this time. Keep watching in September for another story as we get closer to October 1.

  • Love the Dooney print but a different style bag would be nice. They all start looking the same and I have quite a few totes and crossbody bags

    • @Sherry – Thank you for your comment. I’ve shared your feedback with the accessories team. I believe they selected these silhouettes to showcase the artwork as much as possible.

  • Do we know a release date?

    • @Debbie – These items will be released in the fall. The actual 45th anniversary for Magic Kingdom Park is October 1.

  • Any chance the 45th logo will be used on a deluxe print? Also, will there be any polo or fleece throw?

    I think I like the coin in the acrylic display the best particularly because it’s the closest thing to a deluxe print of the logo art.

    • @Jonathan – I’m not aware of such items at this time. I invite you to keep watching the Disney Parks Blog in September. I’ll have one more article about 45th Anniversary items.

  • These are so rad! I only wish there was a basic ball cap.
