Magical Merchandise: New WDW 50th Spring Collections

The Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary is six months in and the merchandise is still coming in waves!  Last Friday marked the 1/3 mark in the 18 month long celebration and the Disney Parks Blog released information about some upcoming merchandise a few days prior to that.  It looks like we'll be getting three new spring collections!

EARidescent Shimmer Collection

The EARidescent Shimmer Collection is the latest color story at Walt Disney World.  It features the same blue and gold tones that we've seen throughout the anniversary celebration.  (They mimic the colors of Cinderella Castle.)  This new collection will have mouse ears, a Loungefly mini backpack, Spirit Jersey, baseball hat, and more!

Disney Vault Balloon Collection

The Disney Vault Balloon Collection reminds me of my childhood.  The design features the Mickey Mouse balloon print in that was once used to decorate the shopping bags at retail locations.  I am totally pumped about the bright, bold colors they used!  This collection is probably my favorite of the new ones and there will be a variety of new products including a Spirit Jersey, a bucket hat and a Loungefly mini backpack.

Disney Vault Orange Bird Collection 

The Disney Vault Orange Bird Collection is a flashback to the 1970's.  These new apparel pieces definitely give off a retro vibe!  I'm so excited that they're releasing an entire collection of Orange Bird merchandise because he never gets enough love.  I'm especially excited to see what the new Dress Shop dress looks like!  There will also be a men's button down shirt, a ladies smocked top, ladies shorts, a denim jacket, and a character crossbody bag!  (My wallet is saying, "I'm in trouble!")

Celebration Collection

Finally, there will also be some new products joining the Celebration Collection that debuted last October.  This collection showcases Mickey and his friends with lots of blues, purples and golds, and Cinderella Castle.  There will be another Dress Shop dress, more Dooney and Burke handbags and more apparel.  I was also very excited to see that they're finally getting 50th anniversary plushes of Goofy, Donald and Daisy in their celebration outfits.  Now, I can get Mickey, Minnie, Pluto, Chip and Dale and actually complete the character collection of WDW 50th plushes!

I don't know about you, but I'm really excited to see that Disney is still releasing new designs and collections six months into the celebration!  It makes me think that there's still a lot more to come over the next 12 months!  All of these new products will be making their way to the parks this spring.  Eliot and I will also be keeping an eye on Shop Disney to see which of these new products will be released there as well!  °o°
