Disney Parks merchandise has been on a roll the last few years. Previously a lot of items were trite and homogenized throughout the parks so most shops featured basically the same items. That has been changing with the Marketplace Co-op in Downtown Disney and the Haunted Mansion Authentic items released with the new Memento Mori shop in the Magic Kingdom.
Disney has recently previewed some items for 2015 and they include some great additions including a Pirates of the Caribbean Authentic line.
The image shown here is not much more than a style guide for the merchandise coming later next year but it is exciting to see the attraction specific premium merchandise continuing.
It was previously thought that the Island Supply Co. location near the Jungle Cruise would become a "Jungle Cruise Authentic" location but after it was discovered a Sunglass Hut shop would be replace the store I was disappointed, so new Pirates merch is a welcome surprise.
Another thing Disney is usually really bad at but is improving on is tee shirts. The Disney Parks Blog has put out some great limited edition shirts this year featuring favorite attractions and they are continuing that in 2015.
New shirts for 2015 include the Dapper Dans, Harmony Barber shop, Adventures Thru Inner Space and my personal favorite the 40th anniversary Carousel of Progress shirt.
More Orange Bird merch is also coming in 2015 including a 7-inch plush. A new line of dolls called Disney Attractionistas. Each doll is themed after a Disney attraction. I'll be interested to see if these take off. And after the success of the retro nutcracker dolls from this holiday some location specific designs will be coming in 2015 like a Main Street USA and Tomorrowland nutcracker.
What do you think of the preview of 2015 Disney parks merchandise?
