Halloween is my favorite holiday and I am eagerly awaiting my visit to Tokyo and Hong Kong Disney Parks in early September for all the new merchandise, but in the meantime, I got a pleasant and unexpected surprise while at Disneyland in California for a brief visit yesterday.
I had been hearing rumors of new Halloween merchandise coming out featuring my favorite attraction, Haunted Mansion, and I knew a new Duffy pin was released recently as well.
What I didn’t realize though was that Disney released a new smaller, beanie-sized Halloween Duffy the Disney Bear ($15) to match the pin AND that Duffy was making a pretty sly appearance in some of the Haunted Mansion merchandise. I was so excited that the Hitchhiking Ghosts and the Hatbox Ghost were included on the merchandise, I failed to spot this adorable little bear I love peeking out on the popcorn tin, one of the t-shirts, the yard flag, and the seasonal bag!
Not all the Halloween merchandise has been released yet, but if you are at Disneyland in the next few days, definitely check in the Disney Showcase on Main Street, U.S.A. and I have heard reports there was some Halloween merchandise released at Pooh Corner as well. (See photos of all the Halloween merchandise here: Disneyland releases all new merchandise for Halloween 2012)
So excited to see Duffy make an appearance on the seasonal merchandise at the U.S. Parks — now to prep for Tokyo in two weeks with the big Halloween merchandise and Duffy costume release!
