We’re back with another What’s New at Disney Springs, everybody! We have lots of drinks, clothing, and even a new store opening to share with ya, so let’s get started!
Disney Springs Entertainment Update
Can you believe we are only five days out from the release of The Lion King?!
AMC is now featuring the movie poster on its display wall so visitors can stop by and take a photo. We’re getting major “remember who you are” vibes from this gorgeous backdrop of Mufasa and Simba in front of the African sun.
Disney Springs Food Update
Speaking of The Lion King…
Amorette’s has the CUTEST The Lion King Petit Cake in-store!
While we’ve stopped by to try the vanilla and chocolate chiffon cakes layered with amarula mousse, pineapple jam, chocolate covered potato chips, and buttercream, there is now a sign out front advertising its arrival. Click here to read our FULL REVIEW — and find out whether or not potato chips should be included in your next cake recipe… .
The Salted Caramel and Strawberry Family Challenges are a great way to bond with your loved ones. Or, if you want an entire Bubble Waffle to yourself (same here), you can get your own individual confection in a cup.
Are you able to Wreck-It?
This has been the summer of classic childhood sequels. Toy Story 4 opened in June, taking us on another journey with Woody, Buzz, and the rest of the gang as they try to recover Bonnie’s latest toy, Forky.
But, no need to worry, partner! They’re back and ready for some rope wrangling action! YEE-HAW!
Ice cream has that unique ability to make you thirsty immediately after eating it. It’s the perfect excuse, though, to grab a Starbucks drink, especially since they have Toy Story 4 Frappuccinos and Refreshers!
We’re about to slink on over and try that Dog Dash Frappuccino. Maybe we’ll even snag the limited time only Tie Dye Frappuccino too!
The combination of the Fanta Blue Icee, Simply Lemonade, Evan Williams Peach, and Evan Williams Cherry is a perfect way to cool down in the Orlando heat!
(Also, Blue Icees happen to be our favorite!!)
Disney Springs Merchandise Update
Who wants to go on a shopping spree with us?? All of the ADORABLE merch items for sale have given us some serious Disney Shopping Fever (yes, we think this is definitely a real condition!)
A favorite past-time of ours is whirling and twirling in dresses from The Dress Shop. Their vintage designs make us feel like classic Disney Princesses whenever we put them on!
At the Disney Style store, there is an entire area dedicated to our favorite redhead. Ariel gets her own soft hair by brushing it with a Dinglehopper (hair goalsss!!). Now, you can keep a miniature one next to your other thingamabobs with the Dinglehopper Keychain.
Accompanying the mug we found at Big Top Souvenirs, there is a new “The Girl Who Has Everything” Cup! More room for Starbucks drinks, please???
The Mermaid Leggings swam into the store as well, making a shimmery debut. (Why do I love these so much??)
The leggings perfectly pair with the Mermaid Shirt! With those two pieces, we’re all set for a mermaid Disneybound!!
Uniqlo is going all out on their displays too, showing off their roaring The Lion King Collection.
In our humble opinion, the Pocket Tees are absolutely the best shirts being offered at the store! But you can click here and see ’em ALL!
The World of Disney has a whole lot of goodies packed on its shelves.
While we know we look totally amazing in leggings, we are sure you do too!
And, there are SO MANY LEGGINGS (we’re not complaining!) to pick from right now at the World of Disney store.
Ride themed, Mickey themed…
And, our OBVIOUS favorite here at the Disney Food Blog:
Snack themed leggings!! Now, we really want a churro…
The men’s section is also getting some new additions!
Namely, there are some new shirts and jackets with the Walt Disney World logo on them. BUT, there is also a Navy Blue Spirit Jersey available.
We think this would go super well with…
The latest Junk Food Hats!
The Walt Disney World themed hats are an adorable way to accentuate your love for the parks, on top of the leggings or the logo apparel!
The Postcard Hat is a reminder of the place you love the most! And Home is where the heart is with the new Magic Kingdom Hat.
And, there’s even a little nod to the different lands on the sides too! We’ll take 10!!!
Bright, cheery, and colorful like Disney World itself, the Colorful Walt Disney World Hat uses a logo and lettering that resembles “it’s a small world.”
Perhaps the rarer find is a Junk Food Hat dedicated to Flower from Bambi. We think Flower is one of the sweetest Disney characters EVER and deserves more merch (#justiceforflower!).
Although we spotted it in Animal Kingdom first, The Lion King VHS Phone Case is at World of Disney, too!
We also happened to find a new Mickey Mouse Sketchbook, complete with animations of Mickey from different cartoons. To all the artists out there, you could end up sketching the next big thing, just like Walt himself did!
Last, but certainly not least, the NBA Experience Store has finally opened in Disney Springs!
This is an interactive shopping experience particularly aimed at basketball fans (and those who love them).
You can find NBA team and Disney character merchandise, autographed memorabilia, and personalized items around the store. There are Loungefly Basketball Backpacks…
… And Basketball Mickey Ears to go with them!
You can even dribble around the store as you shop!
The full NBA Experience will open on August 12th. That’s a swish, score with us!!
That’s all for this What’s New at Disney Springs. Check in with us next time for more merch, food, and entertainment updates!
