Now that Halloween is over (give me just a minute to mourn that… aaaaand, okay- I’m good!), we can officially switch gears to HOLIDAY MODE! I can almost hear the jingle bells already! Here at Disney, we are getting ready to put up the trees, light the menorah, and spend some quality time with our friends and family. As we prepare, I’m stoked to bring you a first look at some jolly new merchandise you’ll be able to find at Disney Parks around the world and on shopDisney.com. Some are available now, and some are coming soon! It’s never too early to start checking off your list of holiday gifts to buy, so take a look and hop to that holiday shopping!
Last month, we gave you a sneak peek at Walt’s Holiday Lodge collection. The inspiration for this new collection is Mickey Mouse and his pals celebrating the holidays at a ski castle lodge. They are featured throughout the products skiing, snowboarding, and spending time together to enjoy the holidays. Today, I’m delighted to share more of these festive, wintery items that will make an excellent holiday gift this season. Ear headband collectors: Prepare to expand your collection with three new Minnie ear headbands: Walt’s Holiday Lodge with a festive flannel bow, a tree ear headband with a snowflake bow, and an ear headband with Mickey Mouse gingerbread cookies wearing Santa hats. They’re all coming soon to Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney World Resort, and shopDisney.com. Which ones are you most excited to get?
Walt’s Holiday Lodge collection also has two new Loungefly mini backpacks, and I honestly can’t decide which one I’m going to get first: the red all-over print with fun nods to the delicious treats offered in the park during the holiday season (hot cocoa, marshmallow wands, and more), or the Mickey and Minnie Mouse Holiday Loungefly mini backpack that features snowbirds Mickey and Minnie cuddled up together on their way up the ski slopes. The Pluto with antlers on the back of this one is what really does it for me! Both bags are now available at Disneyland Resort and coming soon to Walt Disney World Resort.
Little fashionistas will be ready to rock around the Christmas tree in a dazzling Mickey Mouse holiday dress, also available in an adaptive version. The gem Mickey icons and accents and bow at the waist make it a must-have for any holiday celebration. Mickey Mouse is spreading holiday cheer in a long sleeve plaid flannel shirt for kids, a men’s woven shirt, a knit cardigan, a holiday plaid Spirit Jersey, and a holiday zip-up hoodie; so there’s something for everyone to stay warm in their winter wonderland! They’re all available on shopDisney.com now and coming soon to Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort.
Whether you’re taking fun family photos for holiday cards or just kicking back and spending quality time together, you can’t go wrong with matching family pajamas! Mickey and the gang are reimagined as mugs of warm, frothy beverages in a merry design of one-piece pajamas for kids and adults, a nightshirt option for kids, and even a pajama top for pets! Talk about having sweet dreams this holiday season! These comfy pajamas are on shopDisney.com now and coming soon to Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort.
If plaid is more your family’s style, you can all relax together in these festive flannel pajamas for men, women, kids, and even your four-legged family members! Part of Walt’s Holiday Lodge Collection, these soft cotton pajamas feature Mickey or Minnie sporting a stylish red and gold outfit, complete with Santa hat! Coming soon to Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort, and available on shopDisney.com now!
Chanukah is coming early this year, and I for one couldn’t be more excited for eight crazy nights! After you’ve eaten all the latkes you can handle and cleaned up the kitchen with your charming Chanukah kitchen towel set, cozy up under a Mickey and Minnie Chanukah fleece throw and lounge on a soft and fuzzy throw pillow while you watch the candles burn. If you’re going to make it out to Disneyland Resort or Walt Disney World Resort, check out the menorah tray and Chanukah travel tumbler, too- both coming soon!
We are taking the “ugly holiday sweater” trend to a whole new place with these new holiday sweaters by Spirit Jersey that are anything but ugly! Created especially for Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort, these cozy knit pullovers feature Mickey and the gang with a plaid pattern midsection of holiday icons. Along with a Mickey and Minnie Mouse holiday denim shirt, they are sure to be the hit of your holiday party! Get yours today at Disneyland Resort or on shopDisney.com, and coming soon to Walt Disney World Resort. Also part of Walt’s Holiday Lodge Collection is this Spirit Jersey for both adults and kids that features Mickey and the gang skiing and having “snow much fun” together—available now on shopDisney.com and coming soon to Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort.
Not sure what to get that special someone in your life for the holidays? Have no fear: a 1 Year Disney+ Subscription Card is one-size-fits-all! Available at Disneyland Resort, Downtown Disney District at Disneyland Resort, and on shopDisney.com, this gift includes new programming and archived treasures from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic. No wrapping required!
Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa:
Aulani Resort brings the aloha to the holidays with its “Aloha Kalikimaka” holiday merchandise. When said in a greeting or farewell, “aloha” can be translated as “may there be friendship and love or affection between us.” The word ”Kalikimaka” is the word for “Christmas.” So, when you use the words together, you express the love and affection of “Merry Christmas” in ‘ōlelo Hawai‘i (Hawaiian language).
Tokyo Disney Resort:
Tokyo Disneyland is getting ready for the holidays, too! They’ll have plush badges, sweets, and other festive items inspired by “Disney Christmas Stories.” Over at Tokyo DisneySea, merchandise such as plush badges and a tote bag featuring Mickey Mouse and his friends in “It’s Christmas Time!” costumes will be available. Also, a new Christmas fairy, Lil’ Linlin, will be making an appearance at Tokyo Disney Resort for the first time, so keep a lookout there!
Our friends over at Disneyland Paris are in holiday prep mode, too! Fans of collector’s items will love the replica of the first float from the new “Mickey’s Dazzling Christmas Parade!” If you’re looking to add some rustic flair to your tree, check out these forest-inspired Christmas ornaments designed by the Disneyland Paris teams!
For a tea-riffic new take on the classic Advent Calendar, Disneyland Paris has a Tea-Version to enjoy as you relax by the fire and count down the days to the holidays! Each of the 24 boxes contains teas and infusions of plants and spices with organic essential oils. Talk about a great gift for your bes-tea! The new Holiday Spirit Jersey is a perfect fit for the upcoming holiday season as well, and the gold edition of the Minnie ear headband is always a must-have accessory!
Hong Kong Disneyland Resort:
Starting this month, Hong Kong Disneyland Resort’s shops will have a wide variety of holiday gifts that are sure to make perfect festive souvenirs! Get a Snow Bubble Glow Wand to enhance your experience at the winter wonderland with magical “snow.” Fans of Duffy and Friends won’t want to miss the all-new “Happy Winter Time” series, which will be exclusively available at Hong Kong Disneyland Resort, including plush, home décor and accessories.
I hope you’re ready for all the festive fun this holiday season with the latest products from Disney Parks and shopDisney.com.

We can’t wait to see you rock these new looks and gift them to all your friends and family. Happy Holidays, y’all!
