It is a new year at the Disneyland Resort and it does mean a plethora of ride refurbishments, but it also means a cornucopia of new merchandise to salivate over. Let’s start in Disney California Adventure.
‘The Little Mermaid’ Moves Out
Merchandise themed to The Little Mermaid could previously be found across from her ride at Embarcadero Gifts. However, the store is now home to Minnie Mouse apparel and accessories. Ariel fans need not worry, her goods were simply moved to a new outdoor booth in front of the Little Mermaid attraction.
New Finds at Elias and Co. on Buena Vista Street
A new Star Wars line designed by the California-based company, NEFF, is now available in the Parks. In case you are wondering, the Japanese Katana says “Star Wars.”
Two new Snuggle Snappers were also discovered: Lotso Huggin’ Bear (yes, he smells like strawberries) and Dumbo the elephant. Each one costs $16.99.
A larger version of the previous plush of Buttercup the unicorn from Toy Story 3 also made an appearance, presumably to tie-in to the upcoming Pixar Pier and Toy Story Land in Hollywood Studios.
Experience the Magic (Disneyland Resort-style)
The “2 Parks” collection was recently released, matching the “4 Parks” collection at Walt Disney World. I bet that Paradise Pier patch is going to help push the sales of this one.
The purse and Disney California Adventure-themed raglan was found at Elias and Co. in Disney California at Adventure. Now, let’s move on to the Disneyland side, where the remaining Experience the Magic merchandise was located at the Emporium.

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique goes high-end
The Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique recently rolled out four dresses in their new Signature Collection: Cinderella, Aurora, Belle, and Rapunzel. Each dress costs a whopping $350.
And so the boy’s don’t feel left out, the Boutique also stocks a fancy new Prince outfit, which will set you back $65.
In addition to the Signature Collection, the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique has added a Minnie Dot Package to their menu of makeover options. For $124.95, the package includes “shimmering makeup, face gem, nail polish, princess sash, Princess Cinch bag, unique Minnie hairstyle, plus the trendy tee, tutu and matching bow.” For those wondering, the hairstyle in question fixes the hair into two buns to resemble mouse ears.
And thus ends this look into the new merchandise at the Disneyland Resort. See ya real soon, folks!
