If you’re a Wishables collector, today is the day to be at Walt Disney World, as several releases have arrived simultaneously. Let’s take a look at what’s new!

“The Lion King” Wishables

Hakuna Matata! The latest release of Wishables, starring the cast of “The Lion King,” has finally taken its place on store shelves.

Their debut comes nearly a month after they first appeared on shopDisney, and almost three weeks after we found them at the Disneyland Resort. Let’s take a look at the lineup!

Young Simba Wishables Plush – $14.99

Given that Simba’s the film’s protagonist, it’s only fitting that he would be the open Wishable in this limited release collection outside of the mystery bags.

This cutie’s tail has a fuzzy tip that stands out against the smooth fabric.

In keeping with the Wishables’ style, the young cub has stars in his eyes… quite literally!

The mystery bags have arrived at Magic Kingdom, but the photos of the plush are from earlier this year when the series arrived at Disneyland. The open edition plush of Sorcerer Mickey has yet to arrive at the Magic Kingdom.

Christmas Wishables 12-Day Countdown Calendar – $99.99

Even though it’s only three days until Christmas, Wishables collectors can get ready for the holiday with a 12-Day Countdown Calendar, which is finally available at Walt Disney World.

4917182c-0388-44f0-adbb-f54442f39921

The calendar, which features a dozen Wishables in a Christmas tree-shaped box, previously debuted at the Disneyland Resort in early November. The shipments were likely delayed, which would explain why they arrived so close to Christmas.

On the bright side, if you’re the kind of person who likes opening up all the compartments at once, you can open up nine of them and still have enough left for the next three days.

c2534d71-4c08-41de-a570-57a4fbfaa1a2

While the actual Wishables are hidden away, the box does feature characters in the Wishables style, wearing festive holiday apparel, which could be a clue as to what awaits inside.

Mickey Mouse gets in on the fun dressed as none other than Santa Claus!

The reverse features the tabs to open the compartments, so the front can still be displayed for decoration.

6db7ebb1-9131-4bf2-9de5-832df79e3806

That being said, the stylized ornaments make it a pretty display on its own!

0b88870e-dc28-4117-b5a6-d9313831ba3d

The calendar retails for $99.99.

We found all of these items at the Emporium in the Magic Kingdom.

  1. oh i’m so excited for the return of “Fantasmic!” in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and i wonder if the new show in addition of having new dialogue for Mickey, i wonder if it feature vocal clips from some previous Mickey Mouse releated productions such as “Epic Mickey” and “Mickey Mouse Mixed Up Adventures” for certains scenes in addition of some of his dialogue that was used on Fantasmic 2.0 in Disneyland Park in california such as his screams and laughs.
