Check Out The New Merchandise For Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party 2018

The witching hour’s almost here as Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party returns to Magic Kingdom Park on select nights from August 17 to October 31, 2018. This family fun event for kids of all ages is all about collecting treats, meeting Disney characters, and enjoying villainous entertainment from “Spelltacular” stage shows to parades. This year, event guests will be running “amuck, amuck, amuck” after seeing specially designed merchandise inspired by a beloved Halloween movie.

“Guests who grew up watching the Sanderson Sisters in Disney’s ‘Hocus Pocus’ every Halloween will love merchandise saluting the film’s 25th Anniversary,” explained Cathy Dawson, product developer for Walt Disney World Events. “From apparel to a Passholder exclusive tote bag, these items are a great way to remember both the motion picture and the wonderful ‘Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular’ stage show hosted by the sisters during the party.”

New this year, Cathy developed three T-shirts resembling outfits worn by the Sanderson Sisters.

“Guests are encouraged to dress in costumes at this event, so the T-shirts are an easy way to create an instant Halloween outfit,” continued Cathy.

Other “Hocus Pocus” products include a black-colored Spirit Jersey adorned with a phrase uttered by the mischievous siblings, a cauldron-shaped mug, and a light-up ornament complete with a sculpted image of the trio.

Guests will also find returning favorites such as short- and long-sleeved apparel, and a brightly colored ear hat ornament. Painted with orange, black and purple hues, each item shows Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse enjoying the festivities while dressed for the season.

Annual Passholders will discover several exclusively developed products, from a raglan top that has glow-in-the-dark printing to an Orange Bird collectible pin. These items will only be sold to Passholders, making them an extra special treat.

Other pins this year showcase Disney characters enjoying sweet party treats such as popcorn, cupcakes and candy.

A villain-inspired boxed pin set adds an element of mystery to the evening. There are 12 pins in this collection and each box contains two randomly selected pins, which includes four limited edition chaser pins.

Rounding out the event merchandise collection, guests will find a retail MagicBand with an edition size of 4,000. Presented in a decorative box with glow-in-the-dark ink, guests can use this MagicBand 2 design to unlock the magic of a Disney vacation, from going directly to their resort room after their arrival to effortless theme-park entry, FastPass+ redemption, Disney PhotoPass association and more.

The best locations to find these items during the event is Emporium on Main Street, U.S.A. and Big Top Souvenirs in the Storybook Circus area of New Fantasyland. Frontier Trading Post in Frontierland will also offer the event pins.

Artist Recreates Fairytale Moments By Placing Paper Cutouts Inside Disneyland

By day, Keith Lapinig works as an Interactive Design Manager at Disney, but his passion for his work doesn’t stop after office hours. In his spare time, Lapinig creates whimsical paper cutouts of classic Disney characters and holds them up to real life scenes at Disneyland parks. The artist then photographs each paper art composition and posts them on Instagram, creating his own fairytale narratives.

Inspired by the work of other paper cutout artists, Lapinig’s series began in May 2018 with the desire to “bring that paper magic into Disneyland.” From the Maleficent dragon towering over Sleeping Beauty’s castle to Snow White fetching water at her wishing well, each paper silhouette is carefully cut from black card. “This style with its interaction between the paper illustration and the environment intrigued me,” Lapinig admits. “When translating to my art, I wanted the cutouts to interact with an entire environment, but a detailed illustration would get lost in the composition so I resorted to using a solid color.”

Opening Season Just Announced For Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge At Disney Parks

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will open in summer 2019 at Disneyland Resort and in late fall 2019 at Walt Disney World Resort, when guests will land in the middle of the action as they live their own Star Wars stories.

Both east and west coast versions of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will allow guests to visit a remote trading port on the edge of wild space, where Star Wars characters and their stories come to life – and where guests will find themselves in the middle of the action. The lands will feature two major attractions that put guests in the middle of a battle between the First Order and the Resistance. Each attraction – and even the land itself – will offer guests the chance to immerse themselves in the Star Wars universe like never before.

One attraction will make you feel like you’re on a Star Destroyer inside a hangar bay. The second attraction will give guests the opportunity to fly the Millennium Falcon, piloting the ship, shooting blasters or preparing for hyperspace – all while completing a critical mission. But how you perform on the mission holds even bigger stakes: perform with skill and you may earn extra galactic credits, while bringing the ship back banged up could put you on the list of a bounty hunter. End up on Harkos’s list and you may face a problem if you show up at the local cantina!

Guests will also encounter many familiar faces inside Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, including BB-8, Chewbacca, members of the First Order and – among many others – Rex, the troublesome pilot you may remember from Star Tours, who takes on a new role in this land as the DJ at the cantina. At the cantina guests will be able to try unique concoctions like blue milk. Nearby, they’ll also be able to acquire trinkets and treasures from across the galaxy. You won’t be buying ordinary Star Wars merchandise or T-shirts at the gift shops, but rather special figures and vehicles (like an AT-AT) built by Batuu’s female Toydarians. The toys are inspired by designs from films like The Force Awakens, Rogue One and The Last Jedi.

A Star Wars-inspired resort will also debut as part of the new Disney 360 vacation concept. This new vacation experience will be a living adventure that allows guests to immerse themselves in an entirely new form of Disney storytelling.

Highly anticipated new experiences at Disneyland Resort, Disneyland Paris and Hong Kong Disneyland will soon invite guests to become part of a bigger universe filled with epic heroes and adventures, and today we’re sharing a sneak peek! Developed in partnership with Marvel Studios and Marvel Themed Entertainment, these three new areas will champion the next generation of Super Heroes.

At Disneyland Resort, the new Super Hero-themed land will begin recruiting guests in 2020, with even more new experiences to follow. The Guardians of the Galaxy will be joined by Spider-Man and the Avengers in what will become a completely immersive Super Hero universe, furthering the evolution of Disney California Adventure park. This new land will be anchored by the popular Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!, in the adjacent space that is currently occupied by “a bug’s land.” “It’s Tough to Be a Bug” closed March 19 to make way for this new heroic experience; the rest of the land will close in late summer.

As part of the transformative multi-year expansion announced for Disneyland Paris, the new Marvel-themed area at Walt Disney Studios Park will include a reimagined attraction where riders will team up with Iron Man and their favorite Avengers on a hyper-kinetic adventure in 2020. This will follow an epic experience launching this summer, when Disneyland Paris hosts Marvel Summer of Super Heroes from June 10 to September 30. Favorite heroes will take the stage for a brand new, live-action super-production featuring cutting-edge special effects and spectacular projections.

Multi-year expansion plans are also underway at Hong Kong Disneyland, including a new themed area that will include an exciting attraction where guests team up with Ant-Man and The Wasp. This new attraction will join the Iron Man Experience, which opened in 2017 and is already the most popular attraction at the resort.

Join your favorite heroes soon for these and more epic adventures at Disney Parks around the world!
