Merchandise Monday – New Disney Vera Bradley Pattern

Things have been busy with the Disney Collection by Vera Bradley.  This past Sunday, there was the launch of the Pretty Petals pattern during the Pretty Petals Brunch at Epcot.  The event was very nice but I will leave all the juicy details of the brunch will be in a separate post.

However, during the brunch, the Bouncing Bouquet Vera Bradley was was announced. Unfortunately, this new pattern won’t be available until the Marketplace Co-Op at Downtown Disney opens and the date for the store opening keeps getting pushed back.  (Currently the opening is June but every Cast Member I talked to about it said “June” like they didn’t believe that would actually happen.  So, we will wait patiently and hope for sooner rather than later.)

The new pattern is pink and green with some orange accents.  (The glass display case was back lit with a green light so getting a decent picture was near to impossible.) Bouncing Bouquet prominently features both Mickey and Minnie.  Some of the other Disney Vera patterns are a bit more Disney subtle so if you want to show your Disney side then this might just be the pattern for you.

Happy 50th Anniversary “it’s a small world” and Carousel of Progress

April 22nd was a busy day, indeed!  Not only was it Earth Day, which is the day Disney’s Animal Kingdom opened 16 years ago in 1998, it was also the 50th anniversary of the April 22nd opening of the 1964 New York World’s Fair – which means it is the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress and Disney “it’s a small world”, since they both first opened at the 1964 New York World’s Fair.

The Disney Parks Blog has some great pictures and history from the 1964 New York World’s Fair about these classic attractions.

According to the history of “it’s a small world” attraction listing on the Disney web page:

“it’s a small world” was created for the 1964-1965 New York World’s Fair. Personally overseen by Walt Disney in support of the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the attraction was a huge hit for 2 seasons at the fair and was eventually shipped back to Disneyland park, where it reopened on May 28, 1966.

In 1971, “it’s a small world” was recreated to become one of the Opening Day attractions at Walt Disney World Resort. Due to its immense popularity, the attraction has been replicated in every Disney Resort around the world and is considered a Walt Disney classic.


And the history on the Disney website for Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress goes like this:

Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress was personally created by Walt Disney for the 1964-65 New York World’s Fair.

Featuring state-of-the-art Audio-Animatronics—Walt Disney’s latest animation technology at the time—the show was originally conceived as part of a new area at Disneyland park called Edison Square. When the concept was abandoned, the idea was re-imagined, eventually opening under the name “Progressland” at the 1964-65 New York World’s Fair.

With the classic song “There’s a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow,” written and composed by the Academy Award®-winning team of brothers Richard and Robert Sherman, the show was an instant hit. Following its success, the show moved to Disneyland park and was renamed “The Carousel of Progress,” where it played until September 9, 1973.

In January 15, 1975, the attraction moved to Magic Kingdom theme park where it was rewritten and restaged with a new theme song, “The Best Time of Your Life.” But in the true spirit of progress, the show was reworked in 1994 to its initial incarnation with the original theme song intact—as a tribute to nostalgia.

To mark the occasion of the anniversary of Disney “it’s a small world”, check out where you can upload a video of you singing the theme song or create a custom doll, all to benefit UNICEF.  (Forewarning – it you don’t want to have the song in your head for the rest of the day then turn the volume off on your computer before you click the link.)

Disney and UNICEF’s relationship began in 1964 at the New York World’s Fair when Disney unveiled the “it’s a small world” attraction, a tribute to UNICEF and children around the world. More recently, Disney and UNICEF have worked together to create a brighter tomorrow for children through programming that helps foster imagination and creativity.

In honor of the 50th Anniversary of “it’s a small world”, Disney will donate $150,000 to benefit UNICEF. In addition, the company will donate $1 for every video recorded and every Small World digital doll created at, up to $100,000.


To commemorate the 50th anniversary, you can download Exclusive Carousel of Progress Wallpaper for your computer, ipad, and smartphones thanks to the Disney Parks Blog.  There are also some “it’s a small world” wallpapers also.

Merchandise Monday – Disney Jumping Beans at Kohl’s

Everyone needs a few new outfits for the Spring, including your kids.  A new outfit of adorable Disney on sale is even better!!!

Kohl’s has an exclusive line of Disney Jumping Beans clothing for babies, toddlers, and kids up to size 7 and it is 30% off until April 19th, in-store and on-line.  (And don’t forget the Kohl’s Cash you get for shopping.)



This is my favorite ensemble for girls.  How cute would this be in your pictures in front of the castle or meeting Minnie Mouse herself?  (The fact that it has sequins on it that sparkle is beside the point. Cough, cough.)

Disney Minnie Mouse Polka-Dot Tutu Skirt by Jumping Beans - Girls 4-7

The boys aren’t left out either.   There isn’t anything more American than Mickey Mouse and baseball.

Disney Mickey Mouse Mesh Shorts by Jumping Beans - Toddler

I actually saw the display of this line of clothing at Kohl’s last week and thought to myself: “How cute are those!!!  I wish they made them in adult sizes.”  Sadly, they don’t come in adult sizes but you can still have your babies, toddlers, and kids be the cutest in the neighborhood or in the Parks this Spring and save some money at the same time.

~~~ Happy Shopping ~~~

Merchandise Monday – New T-Shirts at Disney World

It is a dreary, rain threatening Monday at Walt Disney World.  But the old saying holds true:  A bad day at Disney World is better than a good day at work – especially when it is Merchandise Monday.

I was strolling around Downtown Disney yesterday and found so many cute t-shirts that I went crazy and starting snapping pictures so I could share them with you.  It was so refreshing to see so much new merchandise at one time. Usually it just trickles in slowly over at a glacial pace but not this time.  There is so much new “merch” my head was spinning.  Check out these fun new t-shirts:



Most of the t-shirts were $21.95 but a few were $24.95 and came in a range of sizes from XS – XXXL.  And if you can’t make a special trip to Florida to buy your t-shirt but have to “Show your Disney Side”, contact Shop the Magic for all of your personal shopping needs.


~~~ Happy Shopping!!!~~~
