Disney’s “Moana” arrived in theaters on November 23, 2016. After catching a sneak preview at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, I can’t wait to see this film (the music sounds incredible!). I recently went in search of “Moana” merchandise at Disney Parks. My journey took me to the largest merchandise shop at Walt Disney World Resort – World of Disney at Disney Springs Marketplace – where I found a handful of items created especially for this animated feature.
Upon entering World of Disney, I was greeted by giant visual displays with images of Moana and the mighty demigod Maui. The beautiful displays were covered with a variety of products including dolls, toys, mugs and more.
Disney Parks is carrying a 15-inch toddler Moana doll along with plush dolls of Maui, Pua the pig, Heihei the rooster.
Younger guests will find apparel such as T-shirts, a hooded fleece for girls, and a Moana costume that includes a top and skirt.
Adults will find t-shirts and a colorful camp shirt covered with character images from the film.
Finally, I spotted several Disney Tsum Tsum plush, two open edition pins, and a wind-up Pua figure.
On November 23, we will be releasing a limited edition retail MagicBand at Walt Disney World Resort. Presented in a decorative box, this MagicBand will have an edition size of 2,400.
Look for many of these items in select merchandise locations at Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts.
