While visiting Disney Springs over the weekend, I couldn’t help but notice that it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…
It’s almost Halloween, but it’s now full speed towards the Christmas holiday season at the Walt Disney World Resort. Apparently, an entire, HUGE Christmas store in Disney’s Days of Christmas just isn’t enough for Disney Springs, so holiday merchandise has now taken over what was the Wonderful World of Memories shop (located between Hanes Design-A-Tee and The Art of Disney). This is located literally right across the path from Days of Christmas as well.
Now, we already previewed all off the great new ornaments for 2016 in our last Disney Springs photo report, including the Pluto reindeer ear hat seen above, so go check that out if you haven’t.
The continued growth in the popularity of some of the older films in the Disney library is showcased this year, with Bambi taking center stage with an entire ceramic kitchen collection.
Even friend Owl is in on the fun. He is $16.99.
The Thumper gravy boat is $26.99.
Bambi and Flower retail at $19.99 each.
The teapot features Mickey and Minnie Mouse on the front, but…
Some of the animal characters from Sleeping Beauty can be found on the back.
Some of the shirts feature a few more obscure characters in plush form on a tree. Keep this in mind for later…
Remember those plush characters on the tree in some of the merchandise? Well, Disney made those plush as ornaments you can buy. They feel a bit pricey at $16.99 each, but it is a rather fun assembly of characters, including Meeko from Pocahontas above.
The rather cute collection includes Chip, Dale, Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore, Rabbit, Piglet, Owl, Flower, Thumper, Bambi, Meeko, Robin Hood, Olaf, Sven, and the three bear brothers from Brave.
This tin Countdown to Christmas sign is pretty neat as well.
So, what do you think? Will you be buying any of the 2016 holiday merchandise at the parks?
