It’s time for one more have a look at new resort-specific merchandise from varied Walt Disney World motels. On this publish, we’ll share 20+ merchandise pictures of souvenirs from the Polynesian, Saratoga Springs, Modern, Coronado Springs, plus Port Orleans Riverside & French Quarter.
We’re huge followers of resort-specific Walt Disney World merchandise and are at all times preserving an eye fixed out for it once we’re on the motels. However, with dozens of resorts, it’s unattainable to remain abreast of the most recent releases, so what’s right here is new to us, and never essentially scorching off the presses.
This publish continues our ongoing collection of resort merchandise posts, which started with our New Resort-Particular Merchandise at Walt Disney World publish, our Extra New Resort Merchandise at WDW, and New Disney’s Artwork of Animation Resort Merchandise article.
One factor we’ll be aware that since we’ve began “monitoring” lodge merchandise extra carefully, I’ve solely observed two objects make it to the Disney Character Warehouse Shops: a Vero Seaside t-shirt and a really taste-specific Animal Kingdom Lodge shirt.
We’ve additionally seen different issues exit of inventory and by no means return. Which is to say that both these things promote nicely, or sit on the shelf till they promote out and are then gone perpetually. Both manner, these things aren’t making their technique to the outlet, so purchase what you want once you see it.
Anyway, we’ll begin with Disney’s Modern Resort:
I’ve been “chasing” this hat for some time. Sarah instructed me about it final yr and thought I’d actually prefer it because of the five-legged goat. Since then, I’ve looked for it on extra visits than I can rely, and at all times come up empty. I’m going to assert that it’s been bought out every time, however that’s in all probability not true (in my protection, there are like 18 reward retailers within the Modern.)
Seeing it was a little bit of a letdown. I used to be envisioning a hat with the embroidered five-legged goat entrance and heart, and with out all the opposite stuff. The entrance emblem is an inexpensive patch that’s sewn on, and it’s too visually busy for my tastes (though the beneath facet of the invoice is intelligent). If this had been simply the identical gray hat with the goat embroidered on the entrance, and purchase it immediately. Oh nicely, can’t win ’em all.
Persevering with on the monorail loop, there’s a bunch of new-ish stuff at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort:
I don’t have a lot to say about any of this. Walt Disney World is absolutely nailing it with Poly merch. There’s a large assortment of choices, from enjoyable tropical/tiki inspirations and fascinating cuts to extra easy and basic objects. That is what I wish to see, and whereas every particular person merchandise could not enchantment to me, I respect the variety.
Of explicit curiosity is the Dealer Sam’s purse. Clearly, I’m not the goal marketplace for this, however I believe it’s a cool merchandise…albeit one which couldn’t be used a lot. Looks as if an unsightly shrunken head in all probability isn’t what most individuals would need on their ‘regular’ purse, however what do I do know? (However, props on a intelligent design.)
Above we’ve new objects from Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa that needed to have been launched within the final month or so, as a result of choices had been way more restricted once we had been there earlier this spring.
Saratoga Springs is our residence DVC resort, however I’ve by no means discovered a bit of merchandise from the resort that I like. All of it performs up the horse-racing angle, one thing wherein I’ve zero curiosity. My dream merchandise would use the pastel colour palettes of the buildings, possibly with the buildings within the mug above’s emblem?
Actually, what Saratoga Springs Resort wants is its personal mascot to spice issues up a bit. Gritty ought to have some free time on his fingers, maybe he can relocate to Florida and be the Saratoga Springs “Mascot in Residence” for the summer season?!
We even have a bunch of new-to-us objects from Port Orleans Riverside and French Quarter. For the sake of being thorough, we visited the reward retailers in each resorts on the identical day, and located that they every had overlapping however completely different stock.
For example, there are two variations of the Port Orleans Riverside decoration (each are pictured above) out there, with every lodge carrying a distinct one. I’m undecided if this was simply timing or what, however in case you’re visiting within the close to future you may need to verify the opposite resort’s reward store if one thing pictured above is just not out there in your lodge’s reward store.
Lastly, Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort, which additionally has merchandise featured on the high of the publish. These things are the brand new releases which have come out forward of Gran Destino opening. Not pictured but additionally presently nonetheless out there are the older designs.
Evaluating Coronado objects facet by facet is absolutely one thing. The outdated designs are vibrant and filled with persona, whereas the brand new ones are…nicely, you will have eyes. Type of just like the distinction between outdated and new Coronado Springs Resort, itself.
That wraps up this resort-specific Walt Disney World merchandise replace. Hopefully this was a enjoyable, helpful, or fascinating publish. In one other week or two we’ll drop in with both one other one like this, or a stand-alone replace from Wilderness Lodge, so keep tuned for that!
