If you haven’t gotten into the Halloween spirit just yet, this blog post is full of frightfully fun merchandise that’ll do the trick! I’m here to break down some of the new and shriek-tacular products you can find, whether you’re visiting us at Disney Parks or bringing the magic home with shopDisney. Let’s jump on over to Disneyland Resort to start.
Test Your Luck with Oogie Boogie at Disneyland Resort
Ooh, what’s that slight chill in the air? I suppose you might be spending Halloween season on the West Coast? Well, we’ve got you covered!
If you’re attending one of the ghoulishly delightful nights of the now sold-out Oogie Boogie Bash – A Disney Halloween Party at Disney California Adventure park, you won’t want to miss this lineup of merchandise. Everything from glow-in-the-dark Spirit Jerseys and Loungefly Ear Headbands (so you can light up the night as you Trick or Treat), to Loungefly Mini Backpacks and so much more will be available at Disney California Adventure park and Downtown Disney District.
And, if at the end of your journey, you’re still looking for a perfect memento to reminisce on your night full of thrilling character interactions, candy, and all around fun, the Oogie Boogie Bash 2023 official pin will be a must-have for your collection.
Next, make your way on over to select popcorn and soft drink carts at Disneyland park and Disney California Adventure park where you’ll find this year’s Halloween Time all-too-cute popcorn buckets and sippers themed after characters and sights found in Disney films Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas” and “Hocus Pocus.” I’ll absolutely be getting my hands on a Minnie Mouse Hocus Pocus Halloween Dress Up Sipper and glow Zero 30th Anniversary Bucket!
All Treats (No Tricks!) at Walt Disney World Resort
One of my favorite Halloween activities at Walt Disney World Resort has to be Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party which occurs on select nights throughout August, September, and October at Magic Kingdom park. All in one night, you can trick-or-treat in the Magic Kingdom, enjoy unparalleled Halloween-themed entertainment, and watch the sky light up with haunting fireworks – sign me up! And as if that isn’t exciting enough, the merchandise is even better.
Some of my favorites include the Tervis Tumbler and mug, perfect for carrying your witch’s brew. For those with a stylish flair, you’ll need to check out the Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party Spirit Jersey and T-shirts for adults and kids. All items feature artwork of an eerily painted castle and the Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party logo. Remember, all these items are only available during the event, which happens on select nights throughout September and October. A limited number of tickets are still available for select nights, so make sure to save your spot.
Can’t attend a party night? Walt Disney World Resort still has plenty of chilling merchandise to offer throughout the property, especially at one of the central shopping destinations, Disney Springs.
Nothing says fall season to me like a warm cup of coffee, and Joffrey’s Coffee & Tea Company has three all-new villainous flavors to try for the perfect mix of sweet and satisfying! Prefer iced drinks? Stop by World of Disney and pick up this Hades stainless steel canteen, and visit Corkcicle for options to keep you refreshed and ready for even more Halloween fun.
Any season can be a gift season, and these Halloween-themed Pandora Jewelry charms will make the perfect treat. Hatbox Ghost, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse in a pumpkin, Jack-o’-Lantern Mickey Mouse, and everyone’s favorite ghost-puppy, Zero, all make an appearance as collectible charms fit for a Pandora Jewelry item of choice. Time for me to get a new bracelet or necklace to fill up with charms!
Select items from Disney Springs, including products from Pandora Jewelry and Corkcicle, can also be found in shopping destinations throughout Walt Disney World Resort.
Waltz Over to shopDisney
Flying to our parks via broomstick (or, if you’re like Mary Sanderson, vacuum cleaner) this Halloween season might be a little challenging for some, so if you won’t be visiting Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort, count on shopDisney to bring the Halloween thrills home for roleplay, apparel, home décor, and beyond!
Speaking of “Hocus Pocus,” I can’t think of a better way to show my love for those three mischievous sisters than by wearing the Sanderson Sisters T-Shirt for Women, or pairing up my Hocus Pocus 2 Spirit Jersey with a Hocus Pocus Ear Headband. I’ll surely be spellbound while wearing these items. Make sure you also add the Hocus Pocus Crossbody Bag by Harveys to your list, and wear it every witch way!
For those cozy fall days where you’ll just want to stay indoors, add LEGO Ideas Disney Hocus Pocus: The Sanderson Sisters’ Cottage to the mix. Let your imagination run amok through building the infamous cottage of the Sanderson Sisters. It’s complete with a roof that lifts up to reveal an attic, battery-operated glowing “fire pit,” the ever so popular Sanderson Sisters’ Spell Book, and so much more. This set is perfect for a full moon evening.
More into love stories than scary stories? Then Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas” Collection and you are simply meant to be! Match your beloved in The Nightmare Before Christmas Spirit Jersey, featuring Jack Skellington and Sally in a heart shaped logo on front, countdown year-round to the best season with The Nightmare Before Christmas Light-Up Countdown Clock Calendar, and delight your senses with the Jack Skellington Cinnamon Cupcake Disney Munchlings Plush – Limited Release.
This last collection will ensure you hurry back to our destinations. Welcome, foolish mortal, to the Haunted Mansion Collection! Want to keep your eyes on everything like the Haunted Mansion’s groundskeeper? Add the Haunted Mansion “Eyes” Ear Headband to your collection. Looking to reduce stress and feel oh so relaxed? You’ll need the Haunted Mansion Weighted Throw. And last, but certainly not least, you know I had to throw in a Holiday item for those of us who already hear those sleigh bells jingling – the Doom Buggy Light-Up Living Magic Sketchbook Ornament, much like the Doom Buggies from the attraction, has those pesky hitchhiking ghosts on them, ensuring they follow you home!
In the Halloween spirit yet? We hope so! As mentioned, you can find the products above and so much more at our Disney Parks and online at shopDisney. Till then, from me to you, happy shopping and happy Halloween!
