Buckle up for one of the longest photo reports in recent memory as Disney has been making no shortage of new merchandise available as the holiday season grows ever closer. While Halloween and Autumn celebrations are underway, in about a month’s time, the Christmas season officially kicks off at Disney World and the store shelves will be ready for it.
Star Wars Galactic Outpost is Finally Themed
The Star Wars Galactic Outpost shop, formerly D Street, now shares no resemblance with the former store.
Mao’s rules from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, can now be found in the ceiling above, along with a number of insignia flags.
Guests can now find a Build Your Own Lightsaber location here as well.
One of those new-fangled digital pressed penny machines can be found here as well.
What makes them limited edition???
Star Wars: The Merch Awakens
The large Starspeeder Playset is back, now with the Jakku sequence added.
A new large Chewbacca plush for sale.
A Halloween droid is now for sale at Once Upon a Toy.
Even shortbread cookies have a Star Wars theme now.
These rather odd Mexican art style character shirts can be yours for $27.99 each…
R2-D2 tablet case.
A new engraved I.D. tag machine showed up inside Once Upon a Toy.
There is also a new Kylo Ren statue for sale at the parks, JUST $99.99!!! (Sarcasm)
MARVEL Added to Super Hero Headquarters
The Super Hero Headquarters store was finally rebranded with the MARVEL logo recently.
I guess Disney keeps finding loopholes in the Universal theme park agreement.
A digital MARVEL pressed penny machine can be found at Once Upon a Toy.
Dr. Strange merchandise has started to arrive at the parks.
Progress on Projects
Work continues on Planet Hollywood Observatory. Hopefully the covering for the building will end up being more than a plastic sheet.
The planters outside probably aren’t helping guests see that STK Orlando is open…
They did in fact add that greeter stand mentioned in a recent new piece, but no one was standing there when we visited.
Work on The Edison continues.
Here is where Wine Bar George will be located.
Work continues on the Paddlefish, still advertised to open this Fall.
Disney was surveying guests leaving Portobello. Rumor has it that they will undergo a major overhaul in 2017.
Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique has moved, so the old location is being used for a Princess meet and greet test through the month of October.
The Disney Food Trucks in Expo Park now have a centralized ordering area.
Some of the menus were also updated. World Showcase of Flavors now has a bunch of different tacos.
Amorette’s Patisserie has some seasonal offerings.
Music and entertainment at Disney Springs right now has a holiday overlay for Halloween that will last throughout the month.
It’s Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas
Disney’s Days of Christmas recently received new signage, which apparently is best viewed from underneath.
There is also a ton of new ornaments, including a Minnie Mouse graduation ornament to match the Mickey one.
Two more ear hat ornament boxed sets were release: Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan.
There’s also some new apparel ornaments with character costumes hanging on hangers.
A new Pluto reindeer ear hat, sure to be a popular item this holiday season.
Some new blown-glass ornaments for sale.

Some amazing new theme park plush sets were recently released, $34.99 each.

There is also a ton of new apparel for sale.
The popular Princess mugs were redesigned and re-released recently.
