Tom’s Favorite Things 2017 – A Holiday Shopping Guide for Disney and WDWNT Fans

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Oprah has her favorite things she shares for the holiday season, so we figured this year we should share a list from WDWNT.com’s Tom Corless! I am sure you have been dying to find out where Tom gets all those plaid button down shirts to go over his Disney tees (not really)! So without further ado let’s take a look at this year’s hit items, along with some thoughts from Tom on them:


Cars Cozy Cone Alarm

Cars Cozy Cone Alarm - $60.00
Cars Cozy Cone Alarm – $60.00

No Disney Nerd’s nightstand is complete without this Cozy Cone Alarm Clock Radio inspired by the Cars films (and straight out of Cars Land). This was a big hit at the D23 Expo, where it was supposed to be an exclusive item. You can pick up your very own from the Disney Store!


 

Figment Epcot 35th Anniversary MagicBand 2 – Limited Edition

Figment Epcot 35th Anniversary MagicBand 2 - Limited Edition - $32.99

Figment Epcot 35th Anniversary MagicBand 2 – Limited Edition – $32.99

I am sure our dedicated Epcot fans already have this limited edition band in celebration of Epcot’s 35th anniversary, but just in case you missed it, Tom added it to the list since it plays the Universe of Energy Epcot entrance area music when you tap it at the park (and I guess Figment and the pavilion logos aren’t bad either). You can still pick this up from the Disney Store.


Sphero® Disney Pixar Cars 3 – Ultimate Lightning McQueen Vehicle

Sphero® Disney Pixar Cars 3 – Ultimate Lightning McQueen Vehicle

Connect to the app, hit the gas, and see Lightning respond to your commands with his personality on display, thanks to emotive actions and speech. This is the coolest toy Tom claims have ever played with and it’s pretty much like owning an audio-animatronic figure from Cars Land. Yes, it is expensive, but it’s just about the coolest thing he got all year. Target has it with free shipping.


Long Sleeve Flannel Button Down Shirt

Long Sleeve Flannel Button Down Shirt - $24.99
Long Sleeve Flannel Button Down Shirt – $24.99

For those chilly days that happen once or twice here in central Florida, you need to break out a long sleeve button to wear over your Disney graphic tee of course. You can pick up your very own from Target! Right now Target is running a buy one get one half off sale so it’s a great time to stock up and steal his “style”.


CONFIRMED: I Read WDWNT.com

Of course if you get a button down shirt you are going to need a perfectly paired WDWNT tee to go with it! Have you seen our new confirmed shirt yet? Grab one at TeePublicThere is also a version with black text. Both help support WDWNT.com!


Walt Disney Imagineering: A Behind the Dreams Look at Making More Magic Real


You can’t properly call yourself a die hard Disney fan with out brushing up on your Disney Parks knowledge. How do you think Tom knows everything he does about Disney? Well, other than what he gets from inside sources… Hundreds of trips to the theme parks probably help, but so do Disney history books like this one, Tom’s personal favorite! You can pick up your own copy on Amazon.


RAVPower Portable Charger

When you aren’t near a FuelRod station, it’s always handy to have one of these in your backpack as a backup. You can pick up this RAVPower charger Tom uses over on Amazon!


Bambi Signature Collection 2017

A timeless classic that has been loved for generations, Bambi now joins the Walt Disney Signature Collection. Not only is one of his favorite movies beautifully presented in its restored form, but the bonus features have hours of fantastic insight into this legendary film and the artists behind it. You can pick up your own copy of Bambi over on Amazon.


Universal Waterproof Case

Keep those delicate electronics safe in the summer showers here in Florida with a waterproof pouch. Most of our water park videos Tom has shot are while using this and it’s great if you want to use your phone while enjoying a ride through the lazy river. This is an essential Tom backpack item. You can pick up the one Tom has over on Amazon.


Flexible Octopus Tripod Stand

Looking for a future in blogging? This is a must for capturing video on your phone or GoPro and it’s rather inexpensive. Pick up your own for under $10 over on Amazon.


Figment Epcot 35th Anniversary Fan Pack

Figment Epcot 35th Anniversary Fan Pack $19.99
