We may still be in the midst of Disney World’s 50th anniversary, but we’re already gearing up to celebrate another BIG milestone for Disney!
Did you know that The Walt Disney Company turns 100 years old in 2023? Walt Disney and his brother Roy founded the Disney Brothers Cartoon Studio on October 16th, 1923. Next year, Disney will celebrate its 100th anniversary, and we’ve already seen a sneak peek at what some of those celebrations will look like. Mickey and Minnie will have new outfits, lots of merchandise will come out, and some new shows will arrive at the Disney Parks. But if you want to get the party started right away, you can ALREADY find some 100th anniversary merchandise for sale!
The 100th anniversary is going to have a platinum theme, with platinum-colored outfits for Mickey and Minnie…
…and platinum-inspired merchandise! At the recent D23 Expo, we spotted a Mickey ears hat…
…and Minnie ears headband as some of the first 100th merchandise, but unfortunately those have sold out already on shopDisney.
Never fear! Some more merch is available over on Amazon. We found this set of 12 classic Disney Little Golden Books, some of which have been exclusively reprinted for the 100th anniversary.
The set includes stories like “It’s a Small World,” “Moana,” “101 Dalmatians,” and “Mickey Mouse’s Picnic.” You can pre-order it now for $71.88, and it will be released on December 27th, 2022.
Another book you could pre-order for the occasion is “100 Disney Adventures of a Lifetime: Magical Experiences From Around the World,” by Marcy Smothers. The illustrated book has 100 little-known Disney adventures, like seeing fireworks on a dessert-themed boat ride or touring the Galapagos Islands.
You can pre-order the book now for $28.49 (down from $40), and it will be released on October 25th, 2022.
Next, we found a bunch of shirts that all feature a Disney character with the year “2023” on the front. There’s a classic Mickey Mouse t-shirt with Mickey waving to you from the “0” in the year.
You can get it in men’s, women’s, and youth sizes, and it comes in a variety of colors as well. It costs $22.99.
For a hot day in Disney World, you might prefer the 2023 Mickey Tank Top, which has the same design as the t-shirt and also comes in a variety of colors.
You can order this top now for $23.
Mickey is iconic, but it’s STITCH who’s the star of the rest of the shirts we found. You can find a similar design featuring the year 2023, but this time it’s Stitch who pops out of the “0” in the year.
The Stitch t-shirt comes in several different colors and costs $24.99.
Like the Mickey shirts, this one also comes in the form of a tank top with the same design.
You can order the Stitch tank top for $23, and it’s available in black, white, gray, blue, and pink.
One of our favorites, though, is the 2023 Stitch baseball tee!
There are a few different options for sleeve colors, and you can order it now for $29.50.
Finally, there’s a long-sleeve Stitch t-shirt available as well, which comes in gray or black.
You can order this shirt now for $29.99.
That’s it for the 100th anniversary merchandise on Amazon right now, but we’re sure that there will be more souvenirs available as we get closer to the celebrations.
