IMG_8804It’s our favorite part of the month. Time to bathe ourselves in pixie dust, strap on our Mickey Mouse wristwatch, and put on our four armed Monsters University hoodie (because the weather is starting to turn just a little cooler) as we head out for our monthly photo report of the Disney Outlet Store.

The first thing of note when walking into the store is the amount of 2013 branded merchandise available: plenty of photo albums and magnets to grab, as well as calendars. I actually think giving someone a 2013 calendar for Christmas might make for a good gag gift with a note saying something like, “Better late than never,” or “Sorry, they were sold out of 2012s.” Or maybe rip out all the months but December and black out the first three weeks of the month. It makes for a cheap funny holiday gift!

Out with the old, in with the new!

 

Let’s take a look at some of the shirts available this month…

Ladies WDW 1971 tees ($15.99)

 

IMG_9400

The Three Caballeros tee ($16.99)

Hang 10 with Mickey and Goofy

 

IMG_9409

Another beach themed WDW shirt. This was originally $34.95 but is now $13.99

 

IMG_9403

After seeing this shirt I realized I did not bathe in nearly enough pixie dust this week. Originally $24.95 but now $9.99.

 

IMG_9395

Cute shirt for single – or soon to be single – men ($10.99)

 

IMG_9454

Eat your heart out Guy Selga! ($8.99)

I saw that Mickey Mouse motorcycle riding club shirt, and I immediately thought of the Disneyland Social Clubs (such as the Wonderlanders, the Main St. Elite, and Neverlanders), and as a public service I want to remind you that Orlando is the official home of the best (and only) Universal Social Club, the Sons of Bananarchy.

Here’s a good Haunted Mansion shirt for Halloween.

IMG_9449

Haunted Mansion shirt ($10.99)

And speaking of the Haunted Mansion, do yourself a favor and check out this recent short film by Josh and Jeremiah Daws titled “Followed From the Mansion.” A great followup to their amazing “Missing in the Mansion” short film last year.

IMG_9430

This actually exists ($9.99)

 

IMG_9401

Shirt from the Germany pavilion at Epcot ($20.99) I’m glad they went with using Dopey instead of the original idea of having Donald Duck on the front.

 

Let’s move on from clothing  and head over to check out some more Cars Land merchandise that has arrived from Disney California Adventure.

IMG_9420

Cars Land antenna topper ($2.99)

Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s neat getting Cars Land stuff and would love to see some Indiana Jones merch over here, as well, but I wonder if the California outlet stores carry Primeval Whirl or Test Track merchandise. Do they have outlets in California? They must, right? I’m gonna get Seth Kubersky on the case and track this one down.

IMG_9422

Luigi’s Flying Tires antenna topper ($2.99)

 

IMG_9436

Large selection of Phineas and Ferb stuff

 

IMG_9465

Cars Land coffee mugs ($3.99)

 

IMG_9457

Orange Bird alert!! ($2.99)

A whole bunch of items arrived from Storybook Circus in New Fantasyland.

IMG_9444

Storybook Circus ($8.99)

 

IMG_9441

Dumbo t-shirt ($9.99). I really like this one, and the design is also available on a draw string bag.

 

IMG_9439

Nerd versions of Mickey and Minnie ($12.99)

Tons of Monsters University items were around the store.

IMG_9390

The character Nathan Fillion voiced ($8.99)

 

IMG_9392

I don’t even remember this guy from the movie ($8.99)

 

IMG_9393

Speaks over 40 phrases ($19.99)

We saw the Three Caballeros shirt a while back; here’s a hat for them as well.

IMG_9398

Three Caballeros hat ($14.99)

Speaking of hats…

IMG_9446

Cheshire Cat Mickey Ears ($7.99)

Let’s not forget the Star Wars fans when it comes to things to put on the head…

IMG_9432

$26.99

The pixie dust is starting to wear off, so let’s get to some Vinylmation while I’m still feeling good!

IMG_9418

This was originally $74.95!! (now $19.99)

 

IMG_9416

Could not for the life of me figure out what this was. ($17.99)

 

IMG_9415

I actually thought this was a vinylmation for the Thing from the Fantastic Four until realizing it was for DCA ($19.99)

 

IMG_9463

Someone’s buying em… ($26.99)

Let’s close this out with a bang! At the counter they had buckets of pins for just $0.49 each. I won’t tell you how many Orange Bird ones I scooped up…

IMG_9468

At $0.49 each, the best value of the day!

There are actually two Disney outlet stores in Orlando. Both are in Orlando Premium Outlet shopping complexes, and they are called Disney’s Character Warehouse, presumably because The Land Of Misfit Toys was already trademarked. There is one Character Warehouse located on International Drive close to Universal Studios (4951 International Dr, Orlando, FL 3281), and the other is on Vineland Avenue, right across I-4 near the exits to Disney World (8200 Vineland Ave, Orlando, FL 3282). For this edition of MMM, we went to the location near Disney.

  • Hmm… I’m going to guess that Vinylmation is for the Land Pavilion in Epcot? I see a new game in the process! “Guess That Vinylmation!”

  • I love these articles! They are so fun to read. There are no outlets for the parks that I am aware of in CA. I did find a Pirates of the Caribbean ornament in a Disney Warehouse in Branson, MO a couple of years ago. That store was more of a Disney Store outlet, so the park merch was a surprise. It was my first trip to Branson, so I don’t really know if that is typical or not.

    I do not understand why Disney jumps to push out the dated merch from the parks so early. We were at WDW in December 2010, and I would have loved 2013 stuff such as a magnet keychain, etc. Now I know where they were because I certainly couldn’t find them in park. I do not understand why anyone would want a 2014 item, barring a calendar, when they visit in 2013. Of course, I buy dated stuff to commemorate a visit. Maybe it’s just me.

    Please keep these articles coming, they are fun and I always enjoy the laughs. And yes, that Darth Maul tee was, ummm, a puzzle. I did NOT get the little hand drawing the rainbow. It was more than a pixie dust trip that created that image. ;)

  • Sorry for asking a stupid question, but is this the Disney Outlet store in Orlando? If so where is it, as we are visiting in a month and would love to go

  • The Disneystore outlet in Las Americas Outlet Mall in San Diego has some items from Disneyland, but not the variety shown here. I’m not aware of anything similar in California, but if there is please let us know!

  • I’m pretty sure Disneyland ships all their remainders here, the only thing Orlando sends west is the occasional talented person and wheelbarrows of cash… Thank you One Disney!

  • In the NYC metro area, all Disney outlets get Disney parks (specifically Disneyland) merch. So it does travel….
