Happy merry, holly, jolly, seasons greetings! Anyone who knows me knows I love the holidays, and nobody does holidays quite like Disney. From “snow” on Main Street, U.S.A., to delectable treats, gifts on shopDisney, special character encounters all around and decked-out parks – holidays are home at Disney.
It’s officially the Halfway to the Holidays mark, and your resident holidays guru is here to fill you in on what’s sure to be the season’s hottest gifts coming straight from Disney. So, grab your sled and hot cocoa, and let’s jump right in!
Visiting our Disney Parks this holiday season? Well, you’re in for a treat! Holiday gear will be a plenty, and I’ve made my list and checked it twice for all things holiday coming this season to Disney Parks – here’s a sneak peek at some of my favorites:
First up, check out these adorable holiday-themed Spirit Jerseys with a Mickey Mouse Vintage Christmas and Pixar films overlay. These are perfect for any holiday-related activities, especially frolicking down a snowy Main Street, U.S.A.!
It’s not the Disney holiday season without a matching Loungefly bag, and this Mickey Mouse Vintage Christmas Loungefly Mini Backpack is certain to make it to those on the top of the nice list this year.
We of course can’t forget our Minnie Mouse Headband Ears, and these ears featuring characters from Pixar’s “Toy Story” and our Minnie Mouse Pom Ear Headband will surely complete your collection (for now)!
If you can’t visit our parks, the fun and magic continue over at shopDisney where some of these items will be found this holiday season! Available now, you can bring the holidays to life in your home with celebration, Disney Parks, and Sketchbook Ornaments. No matter what the occasion, shopDisney has got an ornament to fill your needs.
Can’t wait to get your holiday fix? Also available now from our licensed retail partner, Hanna Andersson, in a galaxy far, far, away is a set of matching Grogu and “The Mandalorian” family pajamas. Want to count down the days till the best time of the year? The Star Wars: The Life Day Pop-Up Book and Advent Calendar will be a must-have, available now for pre-order. Speaking of must-haves, live from Obi-Wan Kenobi the series is our very own L0-LA59 (Lola) Droid! You can find the beloved droid available now for pre-order on Hasbro Pulse, and this holiday season on shopDisney! Stay tuned for shopDisney’s launch date.
Growing up in the 1990s, video games were all the rage during the holiday season – and I’m proud to say they still are among the coolest gifts out there! LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga lets you play through all nine Star Wars Skywalker Saga films in a brand-new video game unlike any other. Available now on a multitude of platforms, including PC which includes an exclusive classic Obi-Wan Kenobi playable character.
For the adventurer in your life, we’ve got the perfect gifts from National Geographic, some of which include the Mega Fossil Dig Kit, Pottery Wheel, and my personal favorite the Glow in the Dark Science Kit.
Disney really has something for everyone on your list this holiday season, including book lovers. Some of my personal favorites, which are sure to be a hit, are “100 Disney Adventures of a Lifetime,” “Mickey and Friends Mickey’s Book of Christmas,” and “Anna, Elsa, and the Enchanting Holiday.” Whether you’re diving into little-known Disney best-kept secrets, celebrating the holidays alongside Mickey and friends, or reading about the first holiday season with Anna as Queen of Arendelle, there’ll be plenty of delights alongside Disney Books!
There’s even more holiday cheer to be shared, so be sure to follow along for updates as we get closer to the jolliest time of year. Until then, I’ll be sitting here in my holiday gear counting down the days!
