Welcome to a very busy day at Disney Springs. There isn’t much more time to get your holiday shopping done. A few new pieces of merchandise have arrived and they would make amazing presents. Let’s get going!

We remember the giant birthday cake castle, do you? “It’s Time to Remember the Magic” with the latest Disney retro shirt to hit the parks. The shirt looks distressed and aged for a fun, vintage feel. This one was spotted at DisneyStyle for $34.99. There’s also a matching women’s top.

This Fantasyland shirt with Pinocchio is also available for $34.99.

Inside World of Disney, cashiers used fun character paddles to signal the next ready guest in line. We’ve seen them use small red flag and, large red flags, but now they have themed paddles.

Each cashier has a different character sketch and holds it in the air when they are ready for the next guest. The registers are themed to animators’ desks, so these paddles fit in perfectly.

The Cast Members enjoy them, too!

We love the holiday and winter themed scenes on the wall, too.

You can stop by Disney’s Days of Christmas and decorate a pair of “Noelle” antlers.

This puppy either has cold paws or he’s ready to help with the holiday baking.

Amorette’s Patisserie has a new R2-D2 dome cake. This cake includes chiffon, vanilla ice cream mousse, chantilly cream, milk chocolate ganache, and white and dark chocolate crisp pearls. It’s one of their larger cakes (and it sounds delicious), but it’s almost too cute to eat for $59.

Pluto is adorable dressed as a reindeer for this chocolate piñata from The Ganachery.

Sprinkles Cupcakes has a Rum Cake Cupcake, and $0.50 from each cupcake supports those with Lupus.

The Sprinkles Cupcakes Christmas tree looks like it belongs in my house. It’s decorated with coffee, cupcakes and ice cream. Actually, it sounds like it includes all of the basic food groups, if you ask me (don’t ask me).

We spotted a familiar car zooming by on a bus, oddly enough. Lightning McQueen, along with Tow Mater, joined the Disney bus fleet on the latest bus wrap. We spotted this one making its way around the bus loop at Disney Springs, so keep an eye out!

That’s about it for our trip around Disney Springs today. Thanks for joining us and be sure to keep following for all the latest updates!
