You Can Buy Disney Parks Exclusive Merch Online Now — Including The Iconic Starbucks Mugs


So, hey, here’s a fun secret: You can buy a bunch of merch items once exclusive to the Disney Parks online. They’re not always available online as soon as they debut within the parks themselves; if you’re willing to wait a bit, though, they often find their way to Disney’s e-retail store, shopDisney. Patience, as they say, is a virtue

Merch has always been a big part of the Disney experience. The mouse ear hats and headbands are perhaps the most iconic; originally created in 1929 and then popularized by The Mickey Mouse Club, they’ve been a staple souvenir at the parks ever since Disneyland first opened in the 1950s. In recent years, though, Disney has really begun leaning into exclusive, trending park merchandise — spectacular items ranging from special edition mouse ears to beautiful housewares — which, when first introduced, can often only be found at the parks themselves. Remember when the Disney Dress Shop collection premiered at Walt Disney World in 2017? The Disney Parks Blog post about it specifically noted, “This collection will not be available via the Shop Disney Parks app or Disney Parks online store at time of launch.” Cue the sighs of adult-sized Disney lovers everywhere.

But hey, guess what? Two years later, those dresses are on shopDisney. So are a lot of those internet-breaking mouse ear headbands that have gone viral recently. In fact, shopDisney is full of items that were originally made especially for the parks. Unfortunately there’s not an easy way to search for them — but if you scroll down to the full item description of a given item, it’ll have a special note if it was made specifically for one of the parks: Something like, “Created especially for Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort.”
