Disney is rolling out merchandise almost as fast as they are raising their prices (too soon?). Check out some of the new gear hitting the parks starting this week.
Come on everybody, get your bows on! A new massive, red sequin bow with white sequin dots has debuted at the Walt Disney World parks. A similar version was released in a previous year that was a satin pink bow with white polka dots but we are all for these sequins and are loving this version. This new headband can be yours for $27.99.
New Alex and Ani pieces featuring The Lion King have arrived at both Disneyland and Disney World. One is $44.99 and features a baby Simba charm silver toned bangle. The other is $49.99 and features Simba, Timon, Pumbaa all blazing a trail through the jungle. This is a gold toned bracelet and features the words “Hakuna Matata”
The bracelets can be found on both coasts at various locations in Disney Springs, Downtown Disney in Disneyland and throughout the parks. These should also be available soon on Shop Disney.
New backpacks have made their way to Disneyland. There are four distinctive patterns available, and there is definitely something for everyone. Each backpack is priced at $29.99 plus tax and guests can choose from Disney Snacks, Mickey Mouse, Purple Haunted Mansion Wallpaper or Minnie Mouse Bows. The backpacks are roomy and include front pouches, pockets that can be used for cup holders or other needs on each side and are made from a durable thick fabric.
More new items have been made available for preview ahead of the D23 Expo coming to Anaheim in August. A four-pack of Funko Pop’s will join the slew of merchandise and these Funko’s feature The Dapper Dans!
