Do you have a Disney fan that you are shopping for this year? I thought it would be helpful to put together some fun items that Disney fan’s would love to receive this holiday season. So here we go….
What do Disney fan’s want more than anything? A Disney vacation! Disneyland or Disney World…we’ll take it. My friend, Jennifer Hardy, at Destinations in Florida has a great deal going on from now until the end of the year. If you book a package for $2,500 or more, each child in the traveling party will receive a pair of mouse ears or autograph book and each adult will receive a $10 gift card. Just click the image on the right and fill out the quote form to take advantage of this amazing offer!
How about getting a Disney reference guide to wrap up to surprise that special someone with the Disney trip you just booked? My new book, A Tale of Two Resorts: Comparing Disneyland and Walt Disney World, is now available from Amazon just in time for the holidays! This reference book is loaded with facts and information about all of the hotels, restaurants, attractions, experiences, entertainment choices and resort extras that are available at Disneyland and Walt Disney World. Each chapter includes handy side-by-side charts that compare the weather, crowds, events, accommodations, admissions, transportation, and dining that each destination offers. And of course, there’s helpful advice about budgeting, planning your trip, and organizing your day. My favorite feature? As a mom who has experienced the highs and the lows of taking kids on a variety of rides, I have included a Word of Warning for each and every attraction that needs one, giving you a heads up on what you need to be aware of before taking your child on that particular ride.

Not much of an online shopper? Would you rather venture out into the crowds and check out items in person? I decided to head over to my neighborhood mall in Colorado to see if I could find any Disney merchandise. I was actually amazed at everything I found! Of course, there is the obvious first stop at the Disney Store. It is filled with plush characters, video games, movies, clothing, toys and more for Disney fans young and old alike.
What if you don’t have a Disney Store where you live? No problem. I found Disney merchandise at lots of other locations.
The Lego Store had several Disney Lego sets for both boys and girls.
Build-A-Bear had cute Anna, Elsa and Olaf plush available to make and dress.
The Calendar Store had this cute Mickey Mouse calendar.
Hallmark had Disney Precious Moments, itty bittys plush and “Be a Part of the Story” Disney books.
I found t-shirts and more plush at kiosks throughout the mall.
Pottery Barn Kids had Star Wars and Marvel bedding and luggage.
JC Penney had its own mini Disney Store section filled with great options.
Pandora has this beautiful new Disney inspired bracelet and charms.
Too many options? I was able to find Disney gifts cards at Target and my grocery store, King Soopers (Kroger).
I hope you find these gift ideas and deals helpful! Happy shopping and good luck out there!
