EXCLUSIVE Merchandise at Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party 2019

So we all know that there are two things people tend to bring back from a day at the parks. One, photos to have visual memories of your fun-filled day and two, souvenirs to treasure for years to come. However, there’s nothing more special than a souvenir exclusive to where you went!

Recently, we had a night of merry cheer at Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party 2019 at the Magic Kingdom® Park. While we took plenty of photos to share with family and friends, we also snapped many shots of the EXCLUSIVE merchandise that you can ONLY get during the separately-ticketed event (held on select nights from November 8 to December 22, 2019). Here’s a quick rundown on what we found and what you may find (and take home) on your trip to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party 2019!

MVMCP MagicBand

Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party Limited Edition MagicBand

Whether you’re an annual pass holder or someone who simply visits on vacation, this MagicBand is definitely a must-have! It’s a limited edition of only 3 thousand in the WORLD, and it will be of great use for years to come. I have to say that I myself am a sucker for new MagicBand designs and if you’re going to spend your money on any, spend it on something you can’t find every day. It makes it that much more special and, like I said, you can only get this at the party.

MVMCP Spirit Jersey

Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party Exclusive Spirit JerseyMickey's Very Merry Christmas Party Exclusive Spirit Jersey

Hip, hip, hooray! We have been greeted with another adorable spirit jersey to add to everyone’s ever-growing collection. Christmas cheer absolutely radiated off of this spirit jersey with all of the detail put into the design, font and the 3 little button prints on the front. If you’re looking for something Christmas-y to wear to the party and you can’t find anything you like at home, head over to one of the gift shops and snag this sweater. It’ll look great for Instagram photos, polaroid shots, and anywhere else you’d choose to parade it.

MVMCP Tee’s

Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party Exclusive T-ShirtMickey's Very Merry Christmas Party Exclusive Long-Sleeve Tee

Need something a bit more light-weight? Mickey’s Very Mery Christmas Party made sure to offer products of many varieties, just like these short and long-sleeve tees. These are great for those looking for something festive, yet simple and breathable.

MVMCP Holiday Mug

Holiday_Mug_1Holiday_Mug_2

“Cocoa, Cookies, and Christmas Cheer” falls onto everyone that enters the Magic Kingdom® Park, so why not leave with the same magic? This unique holiday mug sports a dome lid to keep your cocoa warm and a festive design that brings you back to classic Christmas. You’ll never forget where this mug came from with the Very Merry logo on the backside, and that memory jogger will make each cup of cocoa, coffee, or tea a little more magical.

MVMCP iPhone Cases

Phone_Case_1Phone_Case_2Phone_Case_3

iPhone users, rejoice! Spread the holiday cheer year-round with one of three dashing phone cases. This is probably one of the best purchases to make for those who want to keep the joy of Christmas spirit with them each day.

For Mickey, Minnie, and Goofy fans especially, you’ll be able to carry your favorite character in their best jolly attire. These cases come in all sizes 6s and above to accommodate most new models, so as long as they’re still available, you should be able to find one for your particular phone.

MVMCP Alex and Ani Bracelet

Give the gift of jewelry (to someone or yourself) this holiday season with the Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party Exclusive Alex and Ani bracelet. Touched with a gold band, this bracelet carries the charm of a classic Christmas evening of putting the final touches on your tree (with Mickey and Minnie, of course). This bracelet is a great addition to Alex and Ani’s Disney collection that you can wear all season or all year!

MVMCP Limited Release Pin

For the avid collector like myself, one could only imagine the immense joy when discovering Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party limited release pin. I keep mentioning classic Christmas because, for one, that’s the obvious theme, but two, it’s my favorite kind of Christmas. This pin radiates classic Christmas with the reds and greens and our favorite 1930’s mouse. It also holds the year dear to the heart with 2019 printed just under his feet and a single Christmas ornament.
