It’s that time of year again. Sooner than some of us would like to admit decorations will be found hung in stores, Christmas music will be playing everywhere, and snow will be falling at the Disneyland Resort (or outside if you live in the right climate). With the holiday trimmings and trappings also comes shopping… lots and lots of shopping. For some, this is a fun adventure that people love to set and conquer. For others, this can be a bit daunting. This year, at DAPS MAGIC we will be offering several gift guides to hopefully help both of these categories. Today we start this series of posts off with a gift guide for those shopping at the Disneyland Resort.
There are a lot of fun things to find and give at the Disneyland Resort during the holiday season. So here is a collection of ideas to help you with your Christmas shopping!
- Holiday Apparel: From “ugly sweaters” to t-shirts, to spirit jerseys, there is a lot of festive clothing to be found at the Disneyland Resort during this time of year. There are also patterned crew socks that have fun knit details that are packaged as a clear ornament which is perfect for either the tree or a stocking stuffer!
- Light-Up: These generally go quickly but the glowing accessories that come either as the Jingle Bell Glow Necklace or Projection Snowflake Glow Wand are great for an evening at the Disneyland Resort or for when heading to Christmas parties or going to look at Christmas lights!
- Countdown to Christmas: Mickey and Minnie’s countdown calendar shares the spirit of Christmas while helping countdown to December 25th.
- Accessories: There are a TON of accessories to be found throughout the Disneyland Resort (The DAPS MAGIC team has a near constant conversation going about them because they love them so much).
- For those who like charms, stop by PANDORA to find the Disney Parks exclusive charms. There is also a Holiday Sleigh Pandora charm that is perfect for the season.
- The Dooney & Burke Nordic Winter collection arrives on November 2nd. This includes a large tote bag. If this is something you want, get it early as they generally go fast.
- There is also the evergrowing collection of Minnie ears. This year there are three seasonal designs! Check them out and get one for you and one for your friends. It should be noted that often these can go fast as well.
- Toys: For some, this is the best part of shopping at Disneyland! There is never a shortage of toys to be found at the Happiest Place on Earth! And Christmas time is the best time to go shopping for them!
- The Disneyland Resort castle playset lets children (or children at heart) bring home the iconic Disneyland castle and recreate Disney magic at home.
- Always popular, the Mickey Mouse plush is dressed during this time of year seasonally!
- Favorite movies can be brought to life with the Marvel Universe Mega Figurine Set or the Disney Animators’ Collection Mega Figurine Set.
- Star Wars: The Disneyland Resort has some of the best Star Wars merchandise anywhere in the galaxy! Here are a few ideas for the Star Wars lover in your life.
- Porg pins, Star Wars mugs, and Star Wars tees!
- Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge collectible print
- Droid Factory Sandcrawler playset
- Star Wars mega figurine set.
- Big Kid Toys: Toys shouldn’t just be for kids. There are also toys at the Disneyland Resort for adults! This includes the Ugears train puzzle or the character train set. This can be fun for adults or the whole family!
- Disneyland Resort Experiences: Sometimes the best gifts aren’t things but instead experiences. They can be given for others to enjoy or given to share. Giving an experience is giving the give of Disney magic! If you want to find ways to treat your friends and loved ones to a Disneyland experience, go to https://Disneyland.com/gift. Here are a few ideas for Disneyland Resort experiences you might want to give:
- The obvious gift for a Disneyland Resort experience is a Disneyland Resort ticket. Want to go even bigger? how about a Disneyland Annual Passport? Somewhere in the middle, you can find multi-day tickets for one or both parks at the Disneyland Resort.
- Another option is to give a Disneyland Resort dream trip to your loved ones. The entire trip can be planned and scheduled so all they have to do is show up and be spoiled. Pick from the various Disneyland Resort vacation packages to create an incredibly magical present!
- Disney gift cards offer another way to share Disney magic with loved ones. There are multiple different designs that they come in and they can be used throughout the Disneyland Resort.
- If your loved one is staying at the Disneyland Resort and you want to spoil them, send a floral package or gift to their room! These can be ordered ahead of time and delivered right to guests’ rooms at the Disneyland Resort. There are various themes that range from the holiday season to a first visit. Check out the options here.
- There is a multitude of other options for Christmas gifts at the Disneyland Resort. There are seasonal pajamas, treats, puzzles, kitchenware, ornaments, and more! All of these can be found throughout the Disneyland Resort or they will be soon on https://shopdisney.com. Also, stop by the re-opened World of Disney store in the Downtown Disney District. It has just about everything you could ever want from the Disneyland Resort all in one place!
