Discovered yesterday at Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe at the Magic Kingdom, guests can now bring home a piece of the beloved “it’s a small world” attraction at Disney Parks.
This amazing musical nutcracker features the Toy Soldier drummers who have been an iconic part of the clock tower ceremony dating back to the attraction’s debut at Disneyland Park in the 1960’s. The characters first appeared at Walt Disney World in 2005 when the loading area was completely redesigned to match the West Coast counterpart.
While I will be keeping mine out all year round, they are intended to be a holiday decoration. They are made of wood and have musical and moving elements when you wind it up:
The Musical Nutcracker retails for $99.99, which is a little pricey, but “it’s a small world” often doesn’t receive a lot of love as far as collectibles and statues are concerned at Disney Parks. It’s great to see such a creative well-thought out product that allows us to bring home a piece of a Magic Kingdom attraction. More of this please, Disney.
