Popular Disney Parks Icon Carves a Spot in This Year’s Halloween Merchandise Collection

Frightfully fun Halloween merchandise has materialized just in time for the spookiest season of the year. Designed for guests celebrating the holiday both during and after a Disney vacation, a talented team of product developers, artists and planners spent more than a year crafting these festive items. Their chilling challenge was presenting merchandise in a way never before seen while maintaining a connection to Disney Parks. A solution arrived in the form of a beloved Mouse-eared icon that has grown in popularity in recent years.

“Mickey Mouse-shaped pumpkins are found everywhere during the Halloween season at Disney Parks including merchandise,“ explained Dan Howard, Senior Creative Director with Disney Creative Group. “This Disney icon, mixed with playful character artwork, is an excellent foundation for this year’s collection as it’s something guests will remember from their visit.”

From apparel and home décor to necklaces and headwear that illuminate the night,
guests will have their pick of pumpkin-themed products. New products, such as shirts with all-over prints for adults and kids, join familiar favorites like the light-up trick-or-treat bucket and ceramic candle votive.

Graphic designers and character artists selected Halloween-inspired colors – purple, orange, black and gray – reminiscent of vintage trick-or-treat bags. This limited color palette is best seen on products decorated with Disney characters in colorful costumes.

Dressed as a classic vampire or witch, Mickey and Minnie Mouse are interpreted as sparkling sculpted ornaments, featured on a countdown-to-Halloween clock or displayed on canvas-wrapped artwork. A door mat with a humorous Halloween pun is a wonderful way to welcome trick-or-treaters.

“Products with playful messaging are a popular trend in the marketplace,” explained Summer Bloomfield, Merchandise Strategy Manager, who worked with product developers to curate this year’s assortment.

Eye-catching apparel is adorned with those playful phrases including “I vant candy” or “I’m just here for the candy.” When paired with an orange and black sequined headband and an animated glow necklace, guests can create instant Halloween looks perfect for attending Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Walt Disney World Resort or Mickey’s Halloween Party at Disneyland Resort.

Products are available at merchandise shops throughout the theme parks and resorts. Guests may also order select Halloween merchandise online by visiting ShopDisney.com.

Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights is right around the corner. I hope you’ve been saving up because when you see this year’s merchandise, you’ll want to buy everything you can get your hands on.

Exclusive Stranger Things Merch

If you’re a Stranger Things fan, you’re about to freak out. Our merchandise team designed an exclusive Stranger Things line for this year’s event. You can rock sweatshirts, phone cases, mugs, pins and more.

Stranger Things Tumbler - Halloween Horror Nights 2018

My favorite picks are the Stranger Things sweatshirt that pops with that iconic red and black show logo, and the t-shirt that features our very own Universal Studios arches in the Upside Down. Definitely a Halloween Horror Nights collector’s item!

Stranger Things Merchandise - Halloween Horror Nights 2018

Check out the photo gallery below for more sneak peeks at our Stranger Things merch. There will even be some more pieces that we’ll leave for you to discover at the event.

All Your Favorite Horror Fiends

We’re taking all the iconic slashers, creatures and terrors featured in this year’s event and putting them on merch for you to take home. This year’s Halloween Horror Nights 2018 event design features a montage of Stranger Things, Poltergeist, Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers, and Trick ‘r Treat. You’ll find this design on hooded sweatshirts, t-shirts, mugs and more.

We Know What Scares You Hoodie - Halloween Horror Nights 2018

If you’re a diehard horror fan that wants a specific piece of merchandise for one of the movies or TV shows in the event, have no fear. You’ll discover plenty from shirts from posters to t-shirts. Also ladies, there’s a pair of Trick ‘r Treat leggings that are to die for.

Annual Passholder Exclusives

In addition to all the benefits Universal Orlando Annual Passholders get for Halloween Horror Nights, our merch team created exclusive items just for our UOAPs. Show your UOAP pride with the rotten jack-o-lantern t-shirt and pin.

Halloween Horror Nights Specialty Items

Every year the merch team designs a number of specialty items you can only find in-park. The fan-favorite hand painted skulls are returning to the tribute store. And, for the first time ever, a poster and t-shirt will feature the scare zones this year.

Something else brand new is coming – U Design presents Horror Ink. You’ll be able to choose from over 25 designs and have customized t-shirts printed on demand. The designs feature characters from our haunted houses and scare zones in fun designs, including 80’s throwbacks like the one above. You can get these exclusive designs from the tribute store or the Men in Black store with a custom shirt.

The merchandise team has been hard at work since January to bring these designs to life. The products are designed to make you feel like you’re bringing a piece of the Halloween Horror Nights artwork home with you after your time in the park. The team has really pushed the limit with this year’s products, especially with the uniqueness of the designs. For example, the Stranger Things mug is the first of its kind with the Demogorgon’s teeth printed on the interior of the mug.

Stranger Things Mug - Halloween Horror Nights 2018

You can get your hands on this amazing merchandise throughout Universal Studios Florida during Halloween Horror Nights starting Sept. 14 – Nov. 3. Check out the Halloween Horror Nights tribute store outside Revenge of the Mummy, the Universal Studios Store and select merchandise carts around the park during the event.

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party – Event Exclusive Merchandise Preview

Halloween has arrived at the Magic Kingdom and with it the first nights of the popular Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. The event is full of family fun for all ages including trick or treating, terrific entertainment, and exclusive event merchandise. We attended the opening night as part of a media preview and found some delightful merchandise that we know will be popular with fans as they run ‘amuck, amuck, amuck’ throughout the night.

We asked Disney Parks merchandise communications manager Steven Miller to give us a 2-minute rundown of his favorite items:

One of the key elements of the collection salutes the 25th anniversary of Disney’s “Hocus Pocus” movie. The Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular stage show is a must-see part of Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party and we saw a lot of guests sporting some of this great apparel in the parks already.

We liked the t-shirts that are ‘insta-costumes’ as they resemble the outfits worn by the Sanderson sisters. The cauldron coffee cup was another favorite.

The primary design theme for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party incorporates many elements from the evening into fun design that has found its way on to t-shirts, pins, a limited edition magic band, and other collectibles.

Find these event exclusive items at the 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 offer the event pins.

Do you see any items you know you’ll be bringing home with you from your visit to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party at the Magic Kingdom?

Just around the corner from The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man in Universal’s Islands of Adventure, you’ll find Marvel Super Hero Island’s latest treasure. The new Marvel Boutique is where heroes can gear up for battle with super-stylish clothes and accessories featuring their favorite Marvel Super Heroes.

Store Interior Wide

From the Merc with a Mouth to the Asgardian God of Thunder and the powerful Captain Marvel to the groundbreaking Ms. Marvel, this new boutique is your one-stop shop for looking fabulous while kicking butt and taking names.

As you enter the store, you’re greeted by one of Doctor Doom’s fearsome Doombots—but behind the register you’ll find Black Widow, ready to save the day. The shelves are lined with hero-themed wallets, purses, and backpacks. On the walls you’ll find hats, sneakers, scarves, shirts, and dresses. There’s also jewelry of your favorite heroes’ logos so you can showcase your Marvel love whatever the weather!

Miss Marvel Wallet

The store may be small—hence being a boutique—but there’s so much selection to choose from. You’ll find something you won’t want to leave the park without whether you like to subtly express your passion for comics or wear it loud and proud.

This one-of-a-kind shop can be found right in between the larger than life drawings of Doctor Octopus and Storm in Marvel Super Hero Island. You might have a tough time leaving the island with how much cool stuff there is to check out in this hidden gem.
