Disney World’s 50th Anniversary was a BIG deal — 50 is a pretty big milestone, after all! The big birthday brought lots of special treats, a new attraction, and TONS of new merchandise to the parks. But this isn’t any old anniversary; the 50th Anniversary celebration runs for 18 MONTHS! So far, we’ve continued to see new 50th Anniversary merch and snacks pop up around the parks and resorts even in 2022, and Disney doesn’t show any signs of stopping.
Disney just shared a preview of MORE new merchandise collections coming to Disney World; you might want to start saving up now!
First up, it’s about time Disney created a color story inspired by the Cinderella Castle!
The new EARidescent Shimmer Collection, coming soon, features beautiful blue and gold hues reminiscent of the turrets on the Cinderella Castle. In true Disney fashion, the collection uses EARidescent material that catches the light in the PRETTIEST way!
Disney teased that the collection will include a new pair of Minnie ears, a Loungefly backpack, and more! Later this spring, that beautiful blue spirit jersey will join the collection, too!
We’ve already seen hints of the new Disney Vault Balloon Collection in the parks, but it looks like the collection is about to grow WAY bigger!
According to Disney, this colorful print is the same Mickey Mouse balloon design that was featured on the shopping bags in Disney World in 1971.
Look out for a bucket hat, Spirit Jersey, and Loungefly backpack in merchandise locations throughout the parks and resorts.
Next up, MORE items are being added to Disney’s Celebration Collection, which debuted back when the 50th Anniversary began. This clothing and accessories collection will add a new dress by Dress Shop, Dooney and Bourke handbags, and youth apparel to the lineup. Not only that, but three new Goofy, Donald, and Daisy plushes will soon feature the characters in their special celebration outfits.
Later this spring, a charming little Disney Vault Orange Bird Collection will hit the parks!
Disney explained that the new merchandise will pay tribute to Orange Bird, with items like a new denim jacket and a flower power dress by Dress Shop! Based on these photos, it looks like the collection will have lots of new Orange Bird-themed clothing.
We also heard that a new character crossbody bag will join the collection. Well, we know what we’ll be wearing to the Flower & Garden Festival once this collection drops!
Which new collection is your favorite? We have a feeling that the new EARidescent Shimmer Collection will be a hot seller! In the meantime, stay tuned for all the latest Disney news and merchandise updates!
