Monthly Merchandise Spotlight, February 2018

by on February 13, 2018


Wintertime cold has left Florida, and we’re in that “Florida winter” time of year where it is absolutely delightful to wander around the parks. It’s also a great time to wander around Epcot, especially with Festival of the Arts in full swing. A key part of the festival is seeing so many talented artists showcasing their wares. There’s no possible way I could do justice to all the artists out there–it is something you have to see for yourself. However, I also found a lot of really neat festival merchandise during one of my trips, and a few other neat items. Here’s this month’s merchandise spotlight.


This small, wooden plaque showcases the splatter paint vibe that was found in a lot of official festival merchandise. It reminds me of the melted crayon art that is very popular on Pinterest. This particular piece will set you back $25.

Similar in theme is this Festival of the Arts pouch, great for storing pencils and pens or other small art supplies. It has a canvas-like feel to it, and is a very reasonable $15.

Monthly Merchandise Spotlight, January 2018

by on January 9, 2018

It’s that time again! Time to officially wear the “I Survived the Bomb Cyclone” shirts? The start of Girl Scout cookie sales? One third of the way to the next Disney Outlet Report? Well, yes, all of those. But it is also time for the Monthly Merchandise Spotlight, showing things that I think looked cool while I was out window shopping. Today’s spotlight shows merchandise on sale on Disney Cruise Line during my New Year’s cruise on the Disney Magic. Let’s dive on it. (Or is that really a bad turn of phrase when talking about being on a ship…?)

I’m torn on these shirts–I love the Donald one, but the Mickey one seems a little cringe-worthy for me. What do you think? Either of these something you’d wear?

It’s nice to see some non-Fab-5 shirts out and about. I’m also torn on these, though. Somehow I don’t think I’m the target demographic for them. Are these a purchase or pass? (All of those shirts are in the $25 range, if that helps with the decision.)

I did spot this sleep shirt that I thought was pretty cute. At $35, I almost bought it, but passed for now. Maybe this summer…?

Monthly Merchandise Spotlight, November 2017

by on November 14, 2017

Greetings everyone!

I hope that everyone is getting ready for a wonderful time with friends and family. Because I’m getting to see family over the Thanksgiving holiday but not over the December holidays, I actually finished all my holiday shopping before Halloween–but that gives me lots of time to go window shopping over the next two months with no pressure. As requested, this month I headed over to Animal Kingdom for a look at some of the merchandise you can find there. Some items are found in the Shop Parks app, so if you’re not down here, you can still buy some of these special items for friends and family (or as a treat for yourself.

First, although these designs are not unique to Animal Kingdom, I’m really loving these shirts. I generally don’t buy Disney t-shirts anymore because they tend to feel too snug for my own comfort no matter what size I get. These look like they’d be comfortable and the design is retro without feeling dated. Then again, with a $60 price tag (yes, you read that right), it’s still a pass for me.


Came across this kids’ shirt while I was looking around. Do kids think this is trendy or does it come across as funny as a dad joke? At $20, it’s better than the shirts above price-wise, but I’m not sold on it. What do you think?

So if the kids don’t think it’s all that, maybe the adults will, which is why they also have coffee mugs with the same patterns? Or do kids really drink a lot of coffee in the mornings? The coffee mugs will set you back $14.
