Zazu Shoulder Plush Debuts as First ‘The Lion King’ 30th Anniversary Merchandise at Walt Disney World

We spotted the new Zazu shoulder plush at Gateway Gifts and Creations Shop in EPCOT and World of Disney at Disney Springs. While “The Lion King” didn’t release until June 15, 1994, and a larger celebration is set to kick of in Disney’s Animal Kingdom beginning June 10, it appears Zazu has arrived to kick the celebration off early.

Zazu joins a long line of shoulder plush sidekicks found at Walt Disney World, like Star from “Wish,” Chip from “Beauty and the Beast,” and Abu from “Aladdin.”

What makes the shoulder plush unique from the average plush is that it comes with magnetic feet and a small magnetic pad. The pad is to be placed on your shoulder, inside of your shirt. When Zazu is sat on your shoulder outside of your shirt, the magnets will keep him in place.

The tag Zazu comes with is marked with a special “The Lion King 30” logo.
