Is your dad the very best in all the land? Then it’s only fitting that he receives the very best gift this Father’s Day! From collector’s items and signature Parks experiences, to the tried and true socks and ties (with an extra touch of Disney magic, of course), this collection is filled with all sorts of exciting gifts that the father figure in your life is sure to love.
One simply cannot have enough Disney collectibles, and these items dedicated specifically to dad are perfect additions to any Disney Dad’s collection. This dated pin featuring Princess Aurora with her father, King Stefan, is a wonderful way to commemorate Father’s Day 2022. You can also present dad with the “Best Disney Dad” award with this fun ornament featuring Mickey Mouse. Both items are available on shopDisney, and the ornament can also be found at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort.
Think a tie for Father’s Day makes for a boring, clichéd gift? Think again! shopDisney has a wide assortment of ties with all kinds of designs that make these accessories anything but boring! If dad’s feeling especially heroic, he can slip on a tie featuring masks of your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man and his nemesis Venom. He can also embrace his inner fashion rebel with the Millennium Falcon Gray Silk Tie, decorated in a pattern of Han Solo’s legendary Corellian spaceship. And don’t forget about young Star Wars fans who can match dad’s epic style with the Star Wars: The Mandalorian Tie Gift Set. The set includes an adult tie with a Mandalorian helmet pattern as well as a kid-sized tie that features the lovable foundling, Grogu.
Why stop at ties? There are all kinds of fun and stylish clothes on shopDisney that are perfect for Father’s Day. Evoking nostalgic memories of playing ball in the backyard, this traditional-styled Mickey Mouse baseball jersey is also available at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort and is just the thing to show dad how much of a legend he truly is to you. If you’re wanting to make dad feel like even more of a hero than he already is, the Spider-Man Woven Shirt by RSVLTS is another great choice. At the end of the day, after all of his heroic deeds, there’s nothing quite like the simple reminder to dad just how much he means to his family, a sweet sentiment wonderfully captured in the Encanto “Family is Everything” Tee.
Make dad a true king of the kitchen with nothing short of epic culinary gear. Jedi masters and grill masters alike will love the Star Wars Death Star serving board as well as the “Grill I Will” Yoda grill scraper and bottle opener. And I haven’t forgotten about all the superdads! Edna Mode may take a strong stance against capes, but I’m sure she’d more than approve of aprons, especially this “One Strong Dad” apron that features none other than Mr. Incredible himself!
Of course, no kitchen would be complete without the essentials for making a delicious cup of coffee. Make sure dad wakes up every morning on the right side of the Force with the Star Wars Dual Brew Coffee Maker and Travel Mug, available on shopDisney. If he prefers a more mystical brew in the morning, look no further than this ornate mug featuring the Eye of Agamotto from Marvel Studios’ “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness”. And all the dads who just can’t resist getting goofy—even before the coffee has kicked in—will no doubt get a kick out of this mug featuring Mickey’s pal Goofy and the text “Dad jokes served fresh daily.” Both mugs are available on shopDisney. The Goofy mug is also available at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort, and the Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness Eye of Agamotto mug is coming to both Resorts soon.
Keep dad’s drinks delightfully cool—and in style with some of his favorite characters—this Father’s Day and all year long. Corkcicle Stainless Steel Canteens keep favorite drinks cool for 25 hours, and the stainless steel tumblers, mugs, and stemless cups keep beverages hot for three hours. The shopDisney drinkware assortment now comes in styles inspired by Marvel characters like Black Panther, Spider-Man, Captain America, and more!
A portable phone charger is an absolute must for any Disney Parks trip, and dad can keep his phone charged all day long with the OtterBox Mobile Charging Kit, available at select retail stores at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort. The kit offers a slim, portable design and Micro-USB, USB-C and Lightning adapters, so dad can power up his favorite devices from Apple, Samsung or Google while on the go. The durable cable and smart charging power bank, combined with the compact design and Disney Parks artwork make it ideal for an exciting day at the parks!

All items are available exclusively at Walt Disney World Golf or via a merchandise request submitted online.
What could be more fun than fishing with dad on Bay Lake? A guided fishing excursion at Walt Disney World Resort, presented by TakeMeFishing.org is a great gift that dad and the whole family can share together. These catch-and-release outings for anglers of all abilities let you experience bass fishing at its finest—all year round! If you can’t make it to Orlando for Father’s Day, head to TakeMeFishing.org to get dad a fishing license and use their interactive Places to Fish & Boat map to plan a local outing with him.
Just in time for the June 17 theatrical release of Disney and Pixar’s new film “Lightyear,” the origin story of the iconic Buzz Lightyear action figure from “Toy Story,” these gifts will send fans to infinity and beyond with enthusiasm! The Pop! Buzz Lightyear (XL-01) depicts Buzz in his XL-01 space suit and helmet, ready to explore worlds beyond on his next test flight. Speaking of space suits, just because you’re completing an important mission from Star Command doesn’t mean you can’t be comfortable doing so. These “Lightyear” crew socks are as cool as they are comfy, styled with fun designs featuring everyone’s favorite Space Ranger.
Marvel fans will love this Moon Knight poster printed on Displate’s one-of-a-kind, magnet-mounted metal canvas, durable enough to withstand even the most mysterious of dark Egyptian powers. Dad can also grill like a superhero with this 3-piece outdoor BBQ grill utensil set featuring Captain America’s name and logo. After dad has finished his heroic feats for the day, he can kick up his feet in “The socks that saved the universe. Twice.” The Stance X Guardians of the Galaxy Crew Socks Set includes two styles showcasing the Guardians gang in all their cosmic glory!
If your dad is a Star Wars fan, you won’t want to miss out on gifting him these collectors’ items inspired by Disney+ Star Wars series. Two new characters, Boba Fett (Tython) from “Star Wars: The Mandalorian” and Fennec Shand from “Star Wars: The Book of Boba Fett” are now available as premium action figures in Hasbro’s Star Wars The Black Series. Also from The Black Series is the Mandalorian Darksaber Force FX Elite Lightsaber. Inspired by the ancient, legendary Lightsaber seen in “Star Wars: The Mandalorian,” this unique collectible features advanced LED technology, authentic Lightsaber sound effects, and a durable, light-up metal hilt.
Families take many forms and can be, well… a bit complicated at times, as the galaxy’s most famous father, Darth Vader, knows all too well. But never fear! “Star Wars: I Am Your Father” compiles wise advice, quotes and stories from all corners of the galaxy in a single light-hearted guide for parents, protectors, mentors, and even Jedi Masters. When he’s finished reading, dad can explore the Star Wars galaxy even more! Relive favorite scenes straight out of “Star Wars: A New Hope” by channeling Jedi-like focus to build Luke Skywalker’s X-34 Landspeeder with this LEGO Ultimate Collector Series model. The model captures the Landspeeder in authentic detail, down to the cockpit’s detailed dashboard display and the port turbine’s missing cover.
