We all love bringing home a few Disney souvenirs that help us to remember the “Most Magical Place on Earth.” Walt Disney World now has a new merchandise protocol in place that will help even more Disney Guests to be able to bring home the “magic.” Check this out below.
New Disney Merchandise
As excited as we are for new Disney merchandise, there are some Guests who purchase quite a few Disney items. They may be sharing these with their friends perhaps, or they may be serving as a personal shopper to others.
This can deplete merchandise for other Guests who are wanting to purchase new souvenirs for their personal enjoyment. When I (Donna) attended the first day of the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival, many Guests were pushing strollers not for their children, but for the large amount of festival merchandise.
This created long lines for merchandise. Even more disappointing, many Guests were unable to purchase merchandise because the shelves were left empty. The good news is that this practice will be coming to an end throughout the Walt Disney World Parks.
We shared on August 12, 2021, that items from the Pre-Celebration Collection were found in the Emporium inside Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. Be sure to check out all of the great 50th Anniversary Collections.
When this merchandise first appeared in the Walt Disney World Parks they were with a limit of “2 per item, per Guest.” This was a great policy for high-demand items such as these for the 50th Anniversary.
These signs limiting merchandise to “2 per item, per Guest” are now displayed throughout ALL 4 Walt Disney World Theme Parks. This will apply to all merchandise with the exception of snacks and food.
