New Toy Story Souvenirs Announced and Hopeful Ideas from Pixar Fest
With Pixar Fest kicking off in Disneyland, we are getting a glimpse at some of the truly amazing Toy Story merchandise that Disney has been working on for this event. At this time, one can only hope that WDW will see something similar to Pixar Fest in the near future. If so, there are some strong possibilities that the Florida Park will get a taste of the amazing events, parade, fireworks and, for our purposes here, souvenirs.
Even though I haven’t seen anything official yet, it’s likely that with the upcoming opening of Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World in June 2018, there will be an ever larger selection of amazing pieces for the Toy Story fan in your life – which may be yourself!
While it’s hard to say at this point exactly what items Disney World will be getting once Toy Story Land opens, a few items have already come out or been announced and it’s fun to speculate on what may be headed to Florida after seeing the haul in California.
Items We Know About
In early April, the Disney Shop Parks app released five Pixar themed MagicBands, including one based on everyone’s – and Andy’s – favorite toys. You can get the Toy Story Magic Band right now online and in Walt Disney Parks. MagicBands are only used in Florida for now, so these were likely released in anticipation of the land opening in June. These new designs are the open-edition, MagicBand 2, style.
We also know that Toy Story Land will be getting one of the hot ticket items from Pixar Fest – the Alien Sipper. The Disney Parks Blog announced that these adorable drink tumblers featuring an illuminated claw reaching down toward an excited green alien waiting to be chosen will be available at Woody’s Lunchbox as a souvenir beverage. We all know the proper response to this is, “ooooooooo” …. Come on, you know you did it with me!
These aliens have become famous in their own right and appear on their fair share of merchandise already. This is sure to be a prized souvenir for many if they follow in the footsteps of the Beauty and the Beast rose souvenir cup.
Possibilities from Pixar Fest
One special souvenir item that is available during Pixar Fest is the root beer float served in a souvenir Woody’s Boot. This is currently available at the Golden Horseshoe in Disneyland, but I think it would make a wonderful addition to Woody’s Lunchbox.
Also, the Pixar Fest merchandise in general, including caps, T-shirts and other clothing, passholder tumblers, coffee mugs, ear hats with woody and buzz, and more, features many of your favorite Toy Story characters already. There’s a special Pixar Fest leather tote and of course, special event pins. So far, one can find items with Buzz, Woody, Jesse, Rex, Emperor Zurg, green aliens, green army men and more.
