Welcome to those of you joining me from Days in the Park and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 2nd, stop on our Magical Blogorail.
My favorite aspect of Halloween Time at the Disney Parks is the merchandise. I am a sucker for Halloween decorations and then when you throw Mickey and friends into the mix I have to buy it. It is a dangerous time for me as a consumer because if I have enough credit left on my Disney Credit Card chances are I will buy a lot of Disney Halloween merchandise.
For five years of my life I worked at the Disney Store in San Francisco. Every year (in August, LOL) when the Halloween merchandise would start rolling in I would use my cast member discount to buy just about one of everything. I am pretty sure that I drove my husband nuts when I would bring home the latest statue of Winnie the Pooh dressed up for Halloween. I think my favorite is when Winnie the Pooh dresses up as a bee because we called him PoohBee. I’ve seen him dressed as a black cat, werewolf, Frankenstein (FrankenPooh) and as a bee. He’s just so cute, how can you NOT buy these?
When it comes to the Disney Parks my issues are even worse because the merchandise is so limited and I only get to see it for a short amount of time when I visit the park; unlike when I worked at the Disney Store I was surrounded by the Halloween merchandise for months.
Here are some of the items from my Disney Halloween Collection.
This year when I looked at the Halloween Time merchandise there was one thing that has stood out to me that I must have at ALL costs and it is the Maleficent headband ears. She is my favorite Villain and these will be cool to wear at the office. I normally wear devil horns anyway on Halloween because they don’t dress up at my office (ANNOYING). You can see more Villain headband ears on the Disney Parks Blog at http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2013/10/limited-time-magic-spotlight-on-halloween-headwear-at-disney-parks/
Of course the other Halloween Time item I’d love to have the Madam Leota Globe on my desk at work, that should freak people out.
