When you are looking for merchandise from a Disney Park or on shopDisney.com, Disney recommends one of two options:

  • Push the “Shop” button at the bottom of the shopDisney app and look for the “Disney Parks” category, or
  • Look for the “Parks” tab on the main page of shopDisney.com.

  1. It was doomed, because it didn’t live up to its promise…and at least “shopDisney” is not trying to make the same promise.

    The idea was that one could use the app to buy merchandise that was otherwise exclusive to the parks, merch that wouldn’t appear in either Disney Stores nor licensed to major retailers like, say, Target.

    But then they held it all back. More and more you would see “can only be purchased in the parks” until, basically that was true for everything you saw if it wasn’t an item also available in the Disney Store’s app.

    The promise was broken. The idea that for those of us who have logistical reasons why we can’t go to a Disney park every season but might still get some of the merch that interested us has been taken away. We don’t count. Gotta go to the parks, and that’s that.

    So at least the app that hinted that things would be different is gone, and no promises made. What they sell you online, they sell you, but what is behind the gateway of what the parks sell to the park guests remains hidden from the outside world forever.

    1. That’s a brilliant and successful marketing strategy. The Masters golf tournament does the same thing. You can only get Masters merchandise on-site during the tournament. And they sell almost $800,000 of stuff an hour during the week.

      And saying “what is behind the gateway of what the parks sell to the park guests remains hidden from the outside world forever“ is a little over dramatic. Have you ever heard of eBay or garage sales? The stuff is everywhere.
