For more than 40 years, Disney has been providing magic to wish kids and their families when they need it most. Today, I am beyond excited to announce that we will be launching three all-new product offerings — each unlocking a special donation to Make-A-Wish® — over the next few months, kicking off with the latest color collection, Wishes Come True Blue.
Inspired by Make-A-Wish, this collection celebrates 40 years of Disney and Make-A-Wish working together to grant life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. These new offerings will appear at select Disney parks around the world, the Disney store and online at shopDisney beginning today!
In addition, for each item purchased in the Wishes Come True Blue color collection now through World Wish Day 2021 (April 29, 2021) in the US, Canada and across Europe, Disney will donate 25 percent of the purchase price (up to US $500,000) to Make-A-Wish. Wish.org/Disney
This is the first-ever Disney color collection that celebrates and supports a nonprofit’s impact and ongoing collaboration with Disney. This collection features a wide variety of products from headwear and accessories to apparel and much more!
As seen above, the collection also marks the debut of two all-new products, including the first-ever adjustable children’s Mickey Mouse ear headband – allowing children of all abilities to wear their ears with comfort and joy – as well as the first cloth face masks for children and adults alike by Spirit Jersey.
In honor of this launch, Disney Parks, Experiences and Products is donating 10,000 cloth face masks from the collection to Make-A-Wish.
Over at Walt Disney World Resort, you’ll love these blue-tiful products featuring the Walt Disney World logo, including spirit jerseys, face masks and Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse ear headbands!
Visiting the Downtown Disney District at Disneyland Resort this fall? You’ll want to rock the latest spirit jerseys, sweaters, headbands and even face masks, all with the Disneyland Resort logo at World of Disney and the Disneyland Resort Backlot Premiere Shop.

And, at Hong Kong Disneyland Resort, guests can don the latest headband!
