Disney today announced “YesterEars” coming to the Disney Parks Online Store on August 18. This collection was inspired by a shop with the same name once found at the former Downtown Disney Pleasure Island area when it first opened. During the next three months, you’ll find limited release apparel inspired by classic Walt Disney World Resort attractions and locations. Here’s a look at what you will find from August 18-25, 2016 at

There is also a Raglan with artwork inspired by a Walt Disney World Preview Center advertisement. The Center was open from January 10, 1970, until September 30, 1971. At the location, guests could learn about the project firsthand through displays of models and drawings, and a short filmed presentation. There was also a snack bar and merchandise shop. The original Preview Center building can still be found on Hotel Plaza Boulevard near Disney Springs.

Alien Encounter X-S Tech T-Shirt

Finally, you can “seize the future” with this X-S Tech shirt inspired by ExtraTERRORestrial Alien Encounter. This classic Tomorrowland attraction was open from June 20, 1995 to October 11, 2003 in Magic Kingdom Park. Housed in the Tomorrowland Interplanetary Convention Center was the laboratory of X-S Tech, a corporation from a distant planet intent on demonstrating its interplanetary teleportation apparatus. But the demonstration was marred by difficulties and an alien creature was accidentally teleported into the laboratory.

Additional apparel from the “YesterEars” collection will be released over the next 3 months.

  • Too bad i am sure they will not be available in 3xl. Oh well i will have to continue to buy bootleg shirts

  • Good to see the people at Disney Parks merch are getting my letters. The trick is to spray a little perfume under the envelope flap.
