Magical Merchandise: Walt Disney World 50th

It's a special Magical Merchandise Monday!  I'm continuing my at home celebration with a sneak peek of the new merchandise collections coming out to celebrate Walt Disney World's 50th Anniversary!  I have waited to see what these new products would look like for years.  After Disneyland's 60th Anniversary Diamond Celebration, I had really high expectations for these items.  Thankfully, Disney came through and I love the five different themes they came up with to celebrate 50 years of magic!

Let's take a look at all of the new merchandise collections coming to Walt Disney World (and online) as part of the 50th Anniversary Celebration!!! 

Celebration Collection

The Celebration Collection appears to be the largest of the releases.  It consists of apparel, accessories, home decor, souvenirs and more!  The collection showcases Mickey and his friends, as well as iridescent accents, lots of blues, purples and golds, and Cinderella Castle.  I'm betting that this is the main collection and that most items will be made available throughout the 18 month long celebration.

This is my favorite of the collections.  I want the dress, Mickey and Minnie plushes and the ear hat.  I also love the logo with all of the characters.  There's a gorgeous Dooney and Bourke bag, as well as a Loungefly mini backpack with the characters.  I know I'll need to get a picture frame for our house.  This collection is a dream come true... I just wish they made the Minnie costume dress in adult sizes!!!

Disney Castle Collection

The Disney Castle Collection is inspired by Cinderella Castle.  The merchandise in this collection are primarily an ivory/cream color with accents of gold.  I love the simple, yet elegant feel of this collection.  The Loungefly bag for it is gorgeous and I love the men's button down shirt!  The women's dress for this collection is beautiful, but I wish they also made a dress with the castle to match the button down shirt!

Vault Collection 

The Vault Collection makes me feel all sorts of nostalgic feels.  I remember going to Walt Disney World as a kid and the merchandise in this collection reminds me of those first trips.  The items in this collection all have a retro feel and they are inspired by actual merchandise items from the Walt Disney Archives.  Aren't the plush cute?!?!

EARidescent Collection

The EARidescent Collection is a sparkling dream come true!  This is the latest color collection coming to Disney parks and it features a bunch of merchandise in a pinky mauve color.  They are accented by a pink/purple shimmering "EARidescence".  I pretty much want all of these items.  They're so pretty and sparkly!!!

Luxe Logo Collection

The final collection is the Luxe Logo Collection.  This is the only merchandise collection that hasn't made it's debut in the park yet.  This collection appears to feature black apparel with gold accents and is set to make it's debut sometime in November.

And there you have it!  The five collections of merchandise created to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Walt Disney World!  Some of these items are available now.  A lot of the Celebration Collection and Vault Collection are already at the parks.  There have been a few things popping up from the Castle Collection.  The EARidescent Collection is supposed to be coming very soon (rumored mid-October).  Finally, like I said above, the Luxe Logo Collection will be debuting a little bit later.

There has been a small sampling of items that have shown up online on Shop Disney, but I'm sure more of them will be rolling out over the coming weeks!  Keep your eyes peeled if there's something that you're interested in!  I know Eliot and I will be!

There's certainly a lot of options for everyone!  What's your favorite collection or piece?
